It took 10 minutes after hostess seated us before we got a server to take our drinks and then when we got our food we had problems with ants showing up at our table. We had a table near a window. When I brought it up to the manager she informed us that she knew of the problem. So why... More

We were traveling and stopped here for dinner. Nothing special to say. Food was average and service was good.

I felt like I stepped back in time at this location. The decor, TVs and vibe seemed like something out of the 80's or 90's. Tue good news was that they had $1.00 Bugle Light house drafts and 1/2 price appetizers after 9pm. No Brewzilla though. Applebee's needs to make their restaurants more consistently the same in the country. Come.for... More

The food was cold. This is the worst applebees I've seen on portions of food. When you order a 10oz steak you want what you pay for. Not a 6oz.Then we ordered a desert the Blondie wich is suppose to be HOT so that it will melt the maple topping. The blondie came out and the cake was as cold... More

Applebees has suffered from lack of capital investment. That being said...here is my review... Excellent food and service. The waiter was great with our kids (Take note servers!!!!) and really acted as if he cared. This makes a big difference with families and increased his tip. The food was very good. The music was a bit loud but tolerable. The... More

My wife and I favor Applebee's when we are out or traveling but a little disappointed in this location. We were traveling on March 22,20013 and hoped to have a quick dinner and be on the road. We were there an hour and a half. Our waiter was pleasant but think he either was new and may need a little... More

Liked the food, server was attentive, kinda. Busy and she seemed to have the largest serving station and appeared to be working solo. She had to water, wait, serve and try to keep up with her customers.

There are a few really good chain restaurants. Applebee's ranks just a wee bit above average as chain restaurants go. They have some interesting salads and the quality of their other food is generally pretty decent.
