Arrived at 9 on a Wednesday. Had our hearts set on Cedar Salmon. Waitress returned to inform us of the OUT status. Bourbon Sirloin Steak was tasty BUT arrived medium NOT medium rare as ordered. Shrimp Scampi Linguine was delicious. Waitress Jeanine was excellent. Appears to have management issues.

There were 4 adults at our table. Two of the guys ordered a new spicy steak option and both really liked it. One guy's ordered got messed up - he got steak instead of chicken and shrimp he ordered.

We usually stay away from chain places but decided to go to Applebees with a group so that everyone could find something they wanted to eat. I arrived early to secure a table for 6.

Ate at bar. Inattentive bartender. Waitresses were using the space next to me as a work area to sort out their checks. I ordered the same entree I've had at a half-dozen other Applebee's, but this one didn't come out as good. If this had been my first I would not have ordered it again.

You cannot go wrong with applebee's if you cannot pick what you want. The meal was ok, but the service was slow.
