Very good food and service!

Stopped in for dinner while visiting the area. Got seated right away on a Saturday night. Server was very friendly and attentive. Food came out quickly and was delicious.

Stopped by after lunch. Service was a little slow although there were plenty of empty tables. Our waitress had a group she as serving so she took a while to come over. When she did she took our order but they were very slow bringing drinks. When our dinner came I mentioned to the waitress that we never got our... More

Walked in at 530 pm 3/29/15. 10 minute wait with open tables. Not sure what the issue was, but I won't be going back. Suggest they fix this.

I haven't gone much to Applebees in the past but this occasion we decided to go there. I ordered the sirloin medium rare and it actually melted in my mouth. Also the sides that went along with them was excellent. I will go there again.

I went here at lunch time on Superbowl day. It wasn't overy busy, but certainly not empty. It took quite a long time to put our orders in because our server didn't come see us for ages, and then I needed to ask for a gluten free menu. The food took a while to come out too, but it was... More

I love Apple Bees. The chocolate blondie is by far my fav. I also love their dining options, but it seems this location in particular is going downhill fast. The service, wait times and quality of the food is just not what it used to be. The staff is not terrible by any means, but anytime you see a group... More

Had a burger and it was really good. My son ordered Pasta and it too was good. The only thing I don't like about it is that....ALL restaurants these days tell you..."DON'T TOUCH THE PLATE IT'S VERY HOT....and it is....but why....could it be they put it in the microwave to heat it up...after all its your food that should be...

Hostess was terrific! Very welcoming as I entered the restaurant. Especially since I was traveling alone, she made me feel very welcome. Food was good and service was good.

I stopped in for dinner and was surprised at how quiet it was. The service was great and the food was good too. My food came out very quickly and was hot. It was a Monday night so that probably explains why it was so quiet.

Tried a new chicken and shrimp dish that was rather good but the waiter ruined the experience. Asked for several items that he failed to bring but thank goodness for the other waitress fir stepping in.
