Tasty ribs

Our wait staff was friendly and helpful with making our selection. The babyback ribs were tender and tasty and the 3 cheese penne was prepared just right. A kids menu is available.

Our family came in to eat on an evening when it wasn't very busy. Our server was distracted and it was hard to get his attention. It took 20 minutes for him to take our order and another 45 minutes to get our food. Then it ALL came at once...everything. Salad, appetizers, drinks, entrees...everything.

Applebee's is consistent, and they offer a gluten free menu. On this day, my wife ordered a steak, but it came out far too raw (twice). The manager apologized profusely when he personally returned it the second time, and they made a decent concession on our check. Our server (wish I could tell you her name) was outstanding. Cheerful, attentive... More

Went for lunch. The food was average but the restaurant was very dirty. The carpet was filthy. The bathroom smelled horrible. Floors were sticky. Table not clean. Won't be going back to this location. We were very disappointed.

Stopped here for a quick hot lunch. Got tomato basil soup with a BLT. Daughter got tomato basil soup and Mac@ Cheese with chicken strips on top. Food was hot and very good. Waitress was nice, but messed up daughters order. Price was ok for the about of food we got.

I have always loved Applebee's food & service. We got a nice table, yummy food & great service, but today the strawberry margarita tasted like all mix and no 'margarita'. Bad flavor. This was my birthday dinner from family so I didn't complain to the staff.

The food and service were barely mediocre; it's a chain and nothing more, but they seem to be victims of cost cutting measures.
