We aren't frequent Applebee's patrons so perhaps I enjoyed it more than others might. We sat in the lounge and service was great. Meals were delivered really fast. Our party ordered the cajun chicken, the shrimp scampi, and the nachos. The nachos were huge and our other portions were a perfect size. The only negative comment I would have to... More

We have been to this Applebees a few times, and were always more than happy with the food and service. On our recent visit, our ribs were a little overcooked. Wow, the manager Chelsea stepped up and made things right very quickly. Outstanding customer relations, turned a negative into a huge positive. People make the difference in a chain store... More

The place was a little dirty, the food was okay and the service was fair. What more can i say? Their competition can easily beat them, but if they put more effort into everything they could have a stunning restaurant!

The service was the best that our family has had in town in a while. Late night appetizers are reasonable and tasty. Asked for drink recommendations and were pleased with what was picked.

I have visited here a few times. Consistant is the word here. Pretty average quality and at times the service is only average also. I don't mean to sound so negative but they need to know the truth.

Applebee's is one of my favorite restaurants in the U.S. the menu offers a great variety, the food is tasty and usually great service. There has only been one occasion where the service was slow and we had to keep finding our server. They have fantastic deals for meals, like having 2 main course and an appetizer for $15.00. Nice...

We ate here one evening while visiting our son at UND. The nice thing about Applebees is that you can count on them to be good. So this restaurant was definitely not good. I had the honey ribs which were overdone and mainly bone with not much meat. At home, I would have discarded them and started over. My wife... More
