Excellent choices, well trained staff

Had not been here in a while, but we were impressed with the attentive staff and variety of menu selections. We were able to order what we considered to be healthy meals and enjoyed excellent service. The sauteed vegetables seemed a little extra oily, but the Chicken/Portabella mushroom meal was... read more

This is a standard family restaurant. Nothing really sets it apart. Fair pricing, ever changing staff. The menu doesn't change often, so you can determine a 'usual' if so desired.

I'm not a fan of 'chains' and this establishment is no exception. Typical of Applebee's everywhere: noisy, pictures accompanying menu items, et cetera.

WE had the occasion to visit here for dinner recently, the atmosphere was much improved since our last visit. The food was very good and the service was friendly and prompt, the prices were reasonable. We will definitely be going back.

I had taken my Mother-in Law out to eat after out patient surgery. She suggested Applebees. She was unable to use one of her hands as well as being uncoordinated due to still being under heavy anestetics. Although we had a wonderful and beautiful, kind and compassionate, as well as very gracious and understanding and helpful inevery way, waitress, the... More

Typical cookie cutter food. Maybe a little better than some institutions. The new lemon shrimp is better than average. IMHO, Applebee's is better than most chain cookie cutter restaurants, however, I'll take a local joint any day over a chain.

This restaurant provides the best service, and the food is always very tasty. We enjoy trying out their special tropical drinks once and a while too, and they are always a treat.

I use an Amigo (scooter) to get around. This restaurant is very oddly laid out -- half of the seating is on a raised area and getting up there is very awkward. The food was good and so was the service but if you are with someone in a wheelchair or scooter I would skip this place. It is difficult... More
