Our waitress was excellent - we didn't have to ask for a thing she was always anticipating what we needed next... GREAT JOB. You can't beat the lunch combos: we had the French Onion soup - great flavor loaded with onions, bread cubes and tons of cheese. The Oriental Chicken Salad filled half... read more

Visited here Jan 17/16 for dinner with friends. We were just getting in from 4hr drive from Ft. Lauderdale and were hungry. On entering we were greeted by a "host" who, by the facial expression, was very disappointed that we had come in the door!!!! We were seated at a table in the back corner by the take out door....

I have enjoyed the Applebee's chain for the past couple years after they revamped their menu with new items. This location is excellent with great staff and they are quick to service!

Ate here with my dad one night shortly after my mom passed away. (This location is a favorite of my dads). Our waiter provided some of the best service I have ever encountered. He knew the menu, made suggestions, expressed his sympathies to my dad and told him his drinks were on the house. Everything was perfect. Nice to see... More

I was surprised that it now looks like "Cheers" but has good food. Menus aren't kept up to date. Very "sportsy". The fries were great.

Nice place to go with great bartenders. We like to go and have a couple beers (two for one). We get two for twenty or twenty five to go. We eat the appetizer there and take the entrees to go. Patrice is the best!
