I don't mind applebees but the food is just so...processed? Service is great and the meal was good, but it is always the same when I leave I tell myself I won't go back. I don't enjoy it. Not to say the food wasn't good. I would rather go to Ponderosa.

Went here with 13 people. The steaks were way over cooked, but even after we said not to remake they brought two complete meals to-go and took the meals off the bill! Redeemed themselves. A few of the other orders were incorrect, but fixed. The reason I put three stars is due to the hand washing I saw with employees.... More

My group of 12 golfers came in after playing golf in the area at 4pm. All received great meals and service and we were on our way home within an hour. Very much appreciated!!

It's always nice to have a restaurant that stays open late, sometimes I work late and don't have very many choices. I had the ribeye steak with vegetables and it was done just right and service was fast the waitress was very nice.The manager was going around to every table and checking to make sure everybody was happy. Fair price... More

Went in with my boyfriend to grab some of the 1/2 off apps and decided to get entrees as well. I got the steak with garlicky green beans and he got the sizzling shrimp and chicken entree. Apps were good but when our entrees came out we were severely disappointed. His chicken definitely wasn't sizzling and the shrimp looked like... More

The server was nice enough about it but it was unbelievable. The food items on the menu look real good but when they are plated and on your table they don't... More

The food and staff were so great last year that we ate there on a daily basis; this year was a let down. The food quality is dropping off and the staff seemed disconnected with the patrons.
