The food I ordered was not cooked well. The steak I had was as tough as nails. Wait staff at the bar was good.

We chose from the 2/25 menu, starting with onion rings as an appetizer. Salads are also a choice if you want something healthy. My partner chose the triple mac and cheese with chicken strips and next time that will be my choice. The mac and cheese was not the typical heavy gluey cheese sauce, but a very light sauce with...

I have never been treated so badly by a server in my entire life. I'm from the Midwest so I guess Indiana has me spoiled when it comes to manners. We should have known how our dinner would be the minute we walked in--it was dirty, multiple tables hadn't been cleaned off with no guests sitting at them and the... More

As Applebee's goes, this is well run; or it was today. I'm not a big fan of the CHAIN RESTAURANTS, that "warm up" precooked, or prepped food, but this place did it right. I find their salmon to be the best, & their salads were good. This facility had a new beautification, & it stands out, night & day. (That's... More

This one was average Applebees but that is a GOOD thing. A rather warm day and their air conditioning seemed to struggle to keep up but it was acceptable. Food was excellent and hot, and the server was especially friendly and attentive. Overall, it was the food and service that we've come to expect from Applebees............and, again, that is GOOD.
