An apple a day can B good!

Staying at a hotel right next door plus working late, this restaurant was too convenient. I am now somewhat of an expert after eating 5x in a row, all "to go" for three people. I know this place just gets ok reviews but the food in consistently good, great promos during their week and stays open... read more

Sadly most reviews show bad, poor or horrible service for this Applebee's location. I was surprised to see so many bad reviews for service. The food was great, the selection wonderful and the taste perfect. It was just hard to get taken care of and checked up on. Other than that, is was ok. Maybe more servers would have helped....but...

Typical Applebee's - average food, average service, noisy, has a jukebox that plays loud plus the televisions are blaring too. Prices all seem to be $9.99. Maybe it's because it's in a small town, but this Applebee's could be much better. Seems to be busy with locals. I guess we should have tried Chili's down the road but it was... More

I let my first experience go as a novelty, but two bad experiences in a row deserves a write up. Server burnt out. No the place wasn't busy, the server was just burnt out, probably has been that way for years. Slow, did not get my drink until 10 minutes after placing it - was wrong. Looked around to ask... More

This is Applebee's so my expectations were not high. However, we were still disappointed with how the food tasted as it tasted very processed and sodium heavy. Also, even though there were very few patrons, our waiter was not readily available. I guess he chose to hand out back in the kitchen instead where his customers were - you know... More

We went their thinking it would be like any other Applebee's and boy were we in for a surprise. It was nice at first glance and then as you traveled in and to your table after the hostess got done dancing in the middle of the floor we heard some pretty loud music and awful singing.....it was a karaoke machine...

Been coming here regularly for over 2 years. Consistently good food and friendly service. Double Crunch Shrimp is one of our favorites. I like that they are willing to adjust for my special diet. The fresh steamed broccoli is wonderful. Love this place.

The food was stupendous. The service was amazing as well. I don't see how people do not like it, as I am a regular customer and all of my times have been great. I was even there with a party of 20 and I had an enjoyable time. Will continue to be a regular.

Food was greasy, salty, overpriced and small, small portions. I am not a big eater, but the salad was about 10 pieces of wilted spinach, and the bread for the half sandwich (photo showed a full sandwich) was DRIPPING grease and not even toasted. "tuscan bread?" don't be fooled. Unless Tuscany has been relocated, this is very thin walmart french... More
