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.

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

First time visit, know it's a chain and did not have high expectations. Staff was fabulous, greeting us at the door, getting us seated and the waiter was top notch. Chose from a special Two for $20 and the photos were very tempting. Service was quick and friendly. However the appetizer, Boneless Chicken Wings, were in a thick cornmeal coating... More
