Good food and friendly folks

We stopped in here for lunch. We were greeted by a very pleasant hostess and seated straight away. Our waitress was very friendly and explained the specials and new menu items. Our meals were served at a leisurely pace which was perfect for lunch. Everything was good and cooked to order.

We went here during a road trip to get a quick dinner. The service was great and the food was awesome! We enjoyed our visit, it was just what we needed to get us back on the road quick and satisfied.

They have a great crock of onion soup paired with a sandwich for lunch. Great dinner choices. Prices are moderate. Can't beat it.

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

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
