I have always had great meals at Applebee's. They are a chain restaurant with highly trained people. The menu always changes during the year and they keep it exciting and always so tasty. Service is excellent because they train their people to do a good job and test them before letting them go to work.

A group of 6 of us met here mid week to celebrate a birthday. The location was a midway point for all of us traveling from different cities. The food was so so. We all ordered off the 2 for $20 menu. The steaks and the ribs and chicken were cold, as were the potatoes. The meat itself was very... More

We have eaten at this location many times. Always Excellent. They offered a free meal to Veterans on Veterans Day and I took my wife. The place was packed and they were all very helpful and friendly even with the large crowd. We sat at the bar, no waiting, and the bar waitress was very helpful also. One free meal,... More

Cold beer, good bar food, a friendly bartender, and proximity to our motel. What else is there? We found the appetizers, particularly the fried green beans, really good.

Went for Mom's birthday with a gluten-free family member, a picky child member and a few that like a beer with their food. We were able to fit everyone's tastes and diets here. Not gourmet, but good and reliable food. And always have had very good service.

We had a weight watchers entree; chicken with some sauce on it. It was good, but I just don't like this chain. All their food tastes as if there is a common thread to everything on their menu. I sometimes like consistency, but I struggle with Applebee's although the always have good service.
