Great Food

My husband and I eat here VERY often. AppleBees has some great items and some not so great food items. The price is right for the type of food. We like the variety of choices and they make frequent menu changes. My husband enjoys there beer selection and we leave satisfied.

We have gone to Applebee for the last ten years. The servers are always polite and prompt. The food is good old comfort food and alcoholic drinks are fun. I especially like the oriental grilled chicken salad. Whether with small children or just adults we enjoy old reliable Applebee.

My partner and I go here fairly frequently. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the manager is very responsive to any issue. The food is as it is advertised--consistently meeting the description, a wide variety of dishes are available, and the prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly and accommodating to families with children. Often the twenties crowd... More

From the sense of humor in greeting us at the door to the smiling and VERY courteous waitress to the prompt and pleasant people delivering the food - this Allplebee's wins our award for Best in Class.

This Applebee's is no different from any other Applebee's, with some menu items great, others not so great. Much of their food is too salty, but their New England Clam Chowder was delicious (it was the soup of the day). We went on a Friday, and the place was crowded with elderly patrons. And the darn restaurant only has three... More
