We met our son and daughter-in-law at Applebee's between Christmas and New Year's when they were headed home, mainly because they knew where it's located. We've been there before and were underwhelmed. The last time I had Thai Shrimp salad. It was OK, but wouldn't order it again. I went more generic this time, and had a mushroom Swiss burger.... More

Applebee's is a pretty dependable restaurant choice, and this one was no exception. The service was excellent and our server was very personable. The food was quite good. Their calorically lighter dishes are appreciated, since we watch what we eat. The one recommendation I have is that if you have the Thai Shrimp Salad (not certain of the exact name... More

Stopped here on Sunday, 29 June at about 5:00PM. Hostess show us to a table and brought drinks right away and proceeded to spill one on my wife and herself. She immediately excused herself, said she would return with napkins but never returned. The next table gave us their extra napkins. As it turned out, the Hostess went to dry... More

This is one of our local favorites. The food is good most the time and the waiters are always nice. Some are a little more professional than others, but in general very nice. Good meal for the value. Love the soup and spinach salad.

This chain is meant to appeal to many so they offer a wide diverse menu. It opened late so that is why I chose it. The staff was very accommodating. We started with an appetizer. The chips were very greasy and the cheese dip was very limited. My club sandwich was good but nothing to write home about. It was... More

What a mistake to go here for lunch. Service was poor, food quality was zero as well as the price/value. We ordered the soup/salad combo for $7.59 and what you received was a small cup of soup and enough salad to fill the soup cup. The Chicken tortilla soup was a disaster in appearance and taste left much to be... More

I often stop at Applebee's when traveling and the staff here was very nice. The food was up to par and was served quickly. Only complaint: get a better beer selection.

Our party of 5 visited Applebee's at 2:00 on Saturday afternoon. We were seated and our drink orders were taken and delivered quickly. We waded through an extensive, confusing menu, finally ordering from the special "2 for 20" menu, which offers 2 entrees and an appetizer for $20 (or $24 for certain items). Everyone was satisfied with their meal and... More

We sat down at the table & the waitress immediately gave me a dirty look & started flirting (TOO MUCH) with my husband, I understand sometimes a waitress will do this to improve her tips & I never really have anything to say about it. On this occasion, however, she was over-the-top & the couple at the table next to... More
