My husband ordered a steak & it came cooked wrong. The manager came by & apologized that it definitely was cooked incorrectly. They brought him a whole new dinner. Server was great.

Nice atmosphere, friendly service and tasty food......except for the broiled steak. It was a welcome stop on our trip out to Montana. By all means, stop there.

We like Applebee's and eat at the one close to our home often. This location does not have the same quality as the one we are used to. The waitress was inattentive and unfriendly. The food was poorly presented, was not warm and did not taste good. This meal was a disappointment.

The only time I eat at Applebee's is when I travel to the Cleveland area to visit my mom. I always get the grilled chicken oriental salad and it never disappoints. What prompted this review was the stellar, pleasant service we received this last visit. Our female server was so sweet and friendly and the drinks were generous, too!

About 3 months ago we had terrible service and our food was first wrong and then my husband's fish was hot but french fries were cold. My dish was terrible spicy after being told it would not be. About a month later we gave it another try and the same thing happened and we noticed our old manager was gone.... More

We waited 15 minutes after being seated to have our drink order taken. The only thing that saved this from being 1 star is that our waitress did what she could to fix the kitchen's inneptitude. The food is decidedly bad, but how does a restaurant both burn pizza AND manage to serve it cold? My six year old is... More

Can't remember the last time I had a good meal at Applebee's; guess I am a sucker, went for a carry out a few weeks ago and my complete dinner ended up in the trash can. The steak was inedible, couldn't even cut it with a steak knife. Great location for a good restaurant.
