Fun time

Met up with a group of friends at the bar during the late afternoon. Enjoyed some great appetizers along with an array of cocktails, beers and virgin drinks! Our server Mindy L. was very accommodating and quick. Appetizers were on special at 50% off and they were still full serving size.

I was here on a business trip. I normally try not to go to chains, but some of the local fare here was less than desirable...so I came here. I had a great waitress what was fun, fast, and pleasant.. had some great suggestions. I had the Thai Shrimp Salad (low calorie) and while it was not spicy hot, it... More

We are big Applebee's fans and we're disappointed. The kitchen made mistakes and took way too long to do recooks. Overall, bad service experience.

The restaurant was not busy, we were traveling through and figured we could get a good meal and be back on the road within an hour. The food took 45 minutes to get to the table, the appetizer came with the meal, one of the meals was dropped on the floor while serving (they quickly brought out another one -... More

We stopped at Applebee's because we wanted a sit down meal, at a reasonable price & the food is always good. The service at this particular restaurant was exceptional & it wasn't just our waitress, I heard the people in the booth behind me telling the manager how great their service was as well. My husband & I have been... More
