A friend and I were in the area visiting for work and decided to out for appetizers and drinks. Applebee's is usually our go to spot, after this experience however we may think twice. The restaurant was very busy and being in the customer service industry I understand how difficult a rush can be . You could tell by the... More

It's a chain and they are all pretty much the same. Food is good & reasonably priced, so I will rate the service: excellent. We were tired from driving over 5 hours and it was getting late so we picked Applebee's knowing it was open and had decent food. Between the 2 of us we had an order of fried... More

You would think that I would have learned by now. I keep getting talked into going here with friends who haven't been here yet. Every time that I have been in this restaurant, it seems dirty - trash/food on the floor, sticky tables, etc. So last night, after being coerced with half-price appetizers, I went in - hoping that things...

This is a great stopoff during a vacation to meet relatives, easy to get too and no problem with what you are wearing! Quick service, lots of waiters/waitresses even on a Sunday evening.

Thought this would be a good deal to take-out but it is way over-rated. Limited choices and disappointing overall. I ordered it for takeout one night and was told I would have to come inside the store to pick up the order as they did not have enough staff to wait on the carside takeout. It was the weekend. So...

Visited at about 7 pm looking for a quick bite and some drinks. I found a good meal and nice bartenders.

Common food – we ordered appetizers & split a meal. Really little difference between the taste of beef, or chicken. Only light beer on tap –we would have killed for a Guinness or even a hearty Sam Adams. The table was “crumby” when we sat down – we had to wait a long time to get someone to wipe it... More

We went to Applebees after a viewing before a funeral and were sorely disappointed. It was not that crowded but you would have thought there was a full house. The server was ok but kind of fresh. You could tell he was tired but he should have been better prepared. We are vegetarian and we knew what to order and... More

I liked the staff and the food was great. I really recommend this place. I've eaten there twice in a four day stay!

Great for a date night or out with the fam. A lil bit of something for everyone. Great kids menu & good variety of adult drinks. Hubbys like the games on @ the bar lol.
