The fried pretzels in beer cheese were excellent. I would recommend coming back for that and drinking at the bar, then leaving. The food was nasty and tasted like it was frozen first, then microwaved. The kitchen area looked dirty as well. Applebee's needs to step it up in those areas to survive in this competitive market.

My friend and I were in there one day at lunch when a roach crawled across our table. If that wasn't bad enough, the manager acted like it was not a big deal. Did not offer us a discount on our food or anything. Just a to go box for food that the roach almost crawled into. Would never eat... More

Applebee's is a good food chain that seems to always give a good food product with moderate prices. I had the fried chicken salad, another had a burger and then another had a different salad. We all were full and liked the meal. Avg per person including tip was $12 at lunch on a Sunday.

Whenever I visit this restaurant the food is always good and it doesn't matter what I order. Never had a problem with the waiter or waitress, I visit there every chance I get. The restaurant is always clean even the restroom. The manager on duty stop to chat a minute to see how everything is going and if the food... More

Right next door to the Marriott Residence Inn--walked right on over. Friendly hostess and wait staff complimented the service. Great tasting food--excellent portion size. Prices were good for senior citizens/older adults on a limited budget.

The service was horrible! I arrived around 4 PM and was 1 of only 3 tables in the restaurant. The young lady who greeted me was very pleasant as she handed me off to the waiter/bartender. No smiles here. The 4 associates that I saw were much more interested in each other than the few customers that were present. The... More

Take-out available and quality of food very good. We had a large, complicated order and they got it 100% right.

Ended up going here for lunch on a Friday - ended up with a brand new server who didn't know too much about the menu, which was alright since we ordered basic items. The strawberry lemonade was delicious, and everyone enjoyed their sandwiches. It was good food, but nothing to write home about.
