Came here for dinner. Ordered the Roma Pepper Steak, asked for medium rare. The steak came out so succulent and juicy that it tastes good by itself and there is no need for the A-1 sauce. This will be a dish that I will order again.

Went there for take out. Poor service and they got our orders wrong. They did not seem to care about take out orders. Many people were there at the bar area and seemed to be enjoying themselves so consider for eating in but not take out.. No specialties or recommendations from the server. I will not be going back.

Solo dining is not my most favorite thing, but I was made to feel welcome. I choose fried shrimp which were over done, but it didn't matter--I'd been on the road far to long and it was just nice to have a hot meal. Finished the meal with a Chocolate Moouse slider; perfect ending.

My wife had a salad and I had the Chicken Fajita Roll-up. I get this meal every time I am at Applebee's. I ordered a side of mashed potatoes. The wrap tortilla was stale, I was not given the dipping sauce with my meal and the mashed potatoes were lukewarm and looked like they were the bottom of the pot,... More

We always end up at Applebees when we cant decide where to go. The kids like it, personally, I could do without all the salt, but it is what it is.

The only outstanding comment I can make about this restaurant chain is that it is more weight watcher friendly by offering menu choices that are lower in calorie and actually point that out in the menu. They also advise the Weight Watcher point value which is very helpful. The food is average, the atmosphere is family friendly and reasonably priced.

After a long drive on our way back north we had an early dinner here. The server was great, we did the 2 for $20 deal - the spinach/artichoke dip - yummy!! piping hot, my steak cooked to perfection. We have not eaten often at this chain but are more likely to.
