It is like they didn't want to be bothered with any type of garnish whatsoever. The server may have thought she... read more

Over the past year, my husband and I have eaten here. Decent service, nothing special...but, there's always been a very unpleasant odor in the building.

We have visited Applebee's many times and have always have had a good meal for a good price. You do not feel cheated when you eat here. I really like their salads. We will be back.

Food is good but not special. The service could stand to improve. They have some servers that are very good but mostly they lack in that area.
