Nice and helpful staff. However, when my daughter ordered her drink (fruit punch) they didn't have that. okay. Then my husband ordered the baby back ribs and they didn't have that either, which was disappointing. It left us wondering what else they didn't have available.

I arrived for lunch with friends and I was disappointed from the time we sat down. The restaurant was NOT crowded yet it took 35 minutes for our appetizers. Our food took an additional 45 minutes and all 4 plates were wrong. Refills on drinks were ridiculous, this was just a mess. Our waitress was friendly but slow and the... More

Typical menu which is consistence no matter which location you visit. Sunday night, place was packed. Food was pretty good, fried pretzels are the best I've ever eaten, well except for NASCAR Cafe at City walk which is now closed. Service was sooooooo slow.

So my friends and I were looking for a place to eat after a day at Busch Gardens, so one of them really wanted Applebees and this one was the closest so we decided to go there. We've ate at other Applebees and had pretty good experiences. However this one was not one of them. To start, while we were... More

People we were with said Applebee's was an OK place to eat so after a long day at Busch Gardens we popped in here on the way home. First thing you must remember is ID as they won't serve anyone alcohol without it. Even I had to show ID and I am clearly not young at 55. The food came... More

Place was packed with people of all ages celebrating mother's day so was quite noisy and we were seated next to a large group who were extremely noisy.

We ate at another Applebee's location some time back so we have stayed away from this Chain of Restaurants for quite some time. Last night on a whim we decided to try this place and we were very surprised. I will say it was a little dirty, dead flies on the windows (like no one cleans back there) and our... More
