Great Chain Restaurant - Met Expectations!

A great restaurant to go to when you want a variety of menu options. You know what to expect and you not disappointed by food, atmosphere, service or value. Isn't that really what you want to know anyway??? We were with friends, and the place was bustling. Our order taken quickly and... read more

Visited this location for lunch, first time in about 9 months. What a difference since my last visit! Ordered riblet basket and can honestly say, they were awful. Tough and chewy. My baked potato had bad places throughout, so my meal was a total bust! I told the server of my dissatisfaction and she sent manager, who asked if I... More

Needed food and a drink and decided since I was by myself to sit in the bar. A lot of locals seem to make this their hangout. Bartender was congenial to all; quick service; typical Applebee's food. It was really the atmosphere and service of the bartender that made this a nice outing. Kudos to him!

We haven't visited an Applebees for a while. We were very disappointed. The menu has changed since our last visit. The prices have increased quite a bit. I ordered the grilled cheese and bowl of soup. There was only about a 1/2 inch of soup in the bowl. The grilled cheese when it was made and flipped the bread was... More

I had a free dinner there on Veteran's day. Although they were crowded, the staff was quick and efficient. The food was a good as the service. They went the extra mile by using Junior ROTC members as greeters. That was a nice touch.

We stuck with a chain, because we knew my preschool age daughter liked the selection at Applebees. The service was slow, never refilled my drink, and the food was awful compared to the local Applebees we visit at home.
