The staff are welcoming but the food is not so great. I ordered fish and chips, ok I'm from England this is our international dish it had a lot to live up to but.... The chips ( fries ) was seasoned with far too much salt, towards the end of the meal the salt was hurting the roof of my... read more

I frequent Applebee's restaurants and this one was not a failure. It's good for families. There is a freight train track behind the restaurant. If You are lucky you can get a glimpse or sound of the passing train... during sun-down. What an amazing sound and experience. Have fun!

The food had a weird taste to it and we had to wait longer than expected for a slow night and easy menu selections.

Ordered 2 steaks with baked potatoes for take out. One steak was very undercooked, asked for one medium well done, was more rare. One potato was dry, no butter, nothing. The other was supposed to be loaded - which consisted of shredded cheese and a few bits of bacon. Very dry. Won't go there again.

The menu at Applebee's is not the best although it's not the worst either. I wish they would bring back the quesadilla burger that they used to have.

It is exactly what you expect at a chain restaurant. If you like no surprises, same menus and average service...this is your place. I wanted to go because I was in a hurry and could get seated at the bar to get my food quicker on a busy day.

I gotta say one thing, the food at the Applebee's chain has quality control---the food tastes the same here as the meal I had at the Applebee's in Spearfish, South Dakota several weeks ago. It was good. They were not that busy and we were in no hurry so it was good to be able to relax after a long... More
