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.

The décor here has a classic movies theme, which gave us something interesting to look at while we waited for our food. As at other Applebee’s locations, I had no problem making a substitution for one of my sides due to a food allergy. The service and food weren’t quite at the same level that I’ve experienced at other locations,... More
