This Applebee's restaurant is always busy and yet the service has always been excellent, the food warm and prepared just they way you would like it. You can also enjoy an adult beverage at the bar while you wait 10 minutes or less for a table. This is just a good family style restaurant that the... 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.

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 very tasty, and generous in portion size.

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.

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.
