Good meal

You know what you are getting when you go to Applebees. Our service was good, drinks enjoyable and food was delicious. I love their Thai shrimp salad! Great place to visit while traveling.

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

Friend and I went for lunch due to the restaurant's close location to shopping and the highway. The restaurant was clean and the all you can eat lunch soup and salad combo provided excellent value and tasty food. I recommend that you try the chili and french onion soup along with the garlic bread stick to which you will not... More

Amber, our server, was a delight. Very friendly and kind. She made sure we had everything we needed and checked on us several times during our visit. The hamburgers were excellent. Done just right, moist and flavorful. This is the best Applebee’s we have every eaten in!

We were here for lunch on a weekday afternoon. The staff made us and our kids feel very welcome. Our food came quickly and tasted very good. Our waitress took good care of us and the manager came over to see how we were doing. Good experience all around. Would recommend this restaurant.

The lunch specials were good and the service was adequate. Food is what you expect for Applebee's. The bar area is quite large compared to some others.
