Wonderful staff

I very much enjoyed the food. The waitress was an absolute delight. She was able to interact with everyone she served and even quieted a fussy child nearby with her cheery attitude. My traveling companion, however, became ill after eating. Probably a coincidence, but he doesn't ever want to eat... read more

We stayed next door at the Best Western and used Applebee's for dinner for two evenings. The staff were friendly and explained the choices. We had two different steaks, fish and chips and the low calorie salmon choice. All the meals were hot and freshly cooked. The steaks were very good and the salmon was delicious. I should mention that... More

My traveling companion, however, became ill after eating. Probably a coincidence, but he doesn't ever want to eat there again, just in case.

In town for work, stayed at the HIE behind Applebees so I thought why not walk to dinner. Had the Monday burger special, and a couple beers. Bartender was friendly and prompt. Food was good, hot and timely.

Soup came out cold, then mashed potatoes came out cold, chicken tacos were cold and soggy. All in all not a very good meal. At a table next to us a plate with food fell on the floor. A waiter picked it up, put it on the customers table, then picked up the food and it on the plate for... More

Service was very good despite the fact they were very busy. I was there with my 3 grandchildren. My grandchildren know exactly how they want their food and everything came out great. Ages 8,12 and 14.

The young man that seated us was pleasant. The waiter on the other hand was extremely rude. We waited forever for our food. We had to ask someone else for our salads after over half hour. The food was cold and horrible. I will never go there again.

I ordered the Thai shrimp salad. Should be easy enough, very rich tastes. Everything, though, was soaked in an overwhelming dressing - I had no idea whether I was biting down on a salad leaf or shrimp. Someone else in our group ordered the New Triple Hog Dare, and was disappointed as well. The people of Applebee's were very loud,... More
