This can be a meet and greet place for travelers due to the daily drink specials they have coupled with the late nite appetizer specials. The parking lot stayed full.

Next door to our Hampton Inn, so we walked over for an early dinner on Friday night. A little pricey for my taste, nothing new there. I am cheap! $35 w/ tip is a little more than I like to pay. Server Autumn was attentive. We ordered fried fish w/ fries and a Thai shrimp salad. Both were served promptly... More

This was a great neighborhood bar. Food was good, service right on and the crowd was very friendly. Much like my hometown, Greenacres, FL Applebee's used to be.

The quality and service you would expect. Did carry out, order was correct. Entrance is a bit tricky to find and have to go around the block to exit.

Walked next door for dinner. No wait, not crowded or loud. Enjoyed happy hour 2 4 1 with my dinner. Not sure I like the new little computer thing they have at/on the tables...prefer to do my ordering,etc with the person who is receiving the tip. If I am going to have to use the computer thing...I will stop tipping.... More

On Friday, December 5th at 9:30 pm, when we walked in the door, the place was cold. I put my sweater on. When we were seated we were even colder. I asked if they usually kept it so cold. I was asked if I'd like to change my seat. I asked if there was a place that would be warmer.... More

Pretty much each time I dine at an Applebee's (multiple locations) I find that one detail is very boring . . . but it is NOT the restaurant. It's ME! There is a nice wide variety of choices on a somewhat extensive menu, but I always tend to fall back on my small collection of 'comfort items' that I'm certain... More

had the ribs and friends had the tuna and the fish/chips. Very busy place and a great atmosphere. Food very tasty and a fair price with 2 for 1 on most drinks. Very good for value and a great American brand
