Just Another Applebee's

I have eaten many times at Applebee's in the past and have come to the conclusion that I will only eat at one when I have no other choices. First off, no matter what Applebee's you dine at, you always seemed to be rushed....I don't know why that is, but that's the way it seems...Get 'em in, get... read more

It seems this location just has a hard time keeping up with the other Applebee's. In the past the theme was to wait. Wait to be seated, wait to place order, wait for drinks, wait for food, wait for check. We visited again the other night. They were not busy at all. About 10 tables of customers in the whole...

Went with a friend to dinner on a Friday night. The food was just so-so. I ordered a cherry lime-aid from the bar and it was more ice than beverage. Very disappointed, but my friend had it removed from the bill.

It was a typical Applebee's -- good food and service. Luckily it was fairly close to the Hampton Inn and we found it quite by accident.

This Applebee's location has decent food with friendly servers. If you want drink specials or more flavorful food go to TGIF.

We stopped for lunch. They were not busy and seated us immediately. The server was attentive and our order was served quickly. The chicken breast was just not cooked well....it was underdone. The lettuce wedge was swimming in dressing. It was not an enjoyable experience. We will not be stopping again.

I am normally very liberal in rating businesses because I personally know how much work and commitment it takes just to keep a business afloat these days. However, my experience requires a public service announcement. I ordered baby back ribs and there followed a night of gastronomical pain and suffering. Need I say more.

Our small group of four stopped by for food, drink and conversation and ended up with much more. The much more was our waitress Amy. Amy was very professional, pleasant and made our evening rewarding. She not only handled her business in the restaurant with class, but also shared information about the surrounding area that proved to be extremely helpful... More

It was a typical Applebee's experience. The food was okay although the service was excellent. Judging from the other reviews, it's sort of hit or miss at this one.

My wife and I ate at Applebee's tonight. We both had a bowl of chili which I figured would come out like a soup or salad but it came with dinner. It was covered with jalapenos without beans. My wife described it as manwich with a chili taste W..had a Ruben sandwich which was light on the sauerkraut and pickle... More
