My husband & I stopped in for a quick bite to eat. We sat at the bar & waited & waited & waited for the bartender to finally come over to say "I'll be right with you" We ordered chicken wings, all we tasted was the cooking grease they were fried in. My husband ordered a burger. Very plain, basic... More

The place was ridiculously crowded even late at night. Food wasn't that good the server was really nice but that's the only good thing I could say. Had to wait forever for a server to come over and I couldn't believe how long it took to get our spinach dip. I tried this location but I won’t be back it's... More

I just find Applebee's below average. I know it's a chain so I don't go there expecting gourmet offerings, but as chains go, Applebee's has to be the worst. Service is average. Food usually not hot. I got a salad and sandwich combo, and it was only have a sandwich. Applebee's, it's a grill cheese. I think you can spare... More

Everything was average and boring. The menu does not excite me. The food is ok, nothing spectacular. I thought prices were a little high for this type of chain restaurant. The service was decent and the place seemed clean. I would never pick this place as my choice, but if someone I was with really wanted to go here I... More

I have tried Applebee's many times and it always comes up short. Each time I have received terrible service, microwave quality food, and the bill always seems to be higher than it should be. My worst experience was when I ordered a salad and requested the bacon bits not be added since I was a vegetarian. The waitress needed to... More

I frequent this restaurant quite a lot and have never had a bad experience. It is near to my home and a great place to hang out and grab some chow on a Friday night when you don't want to drive far or have to dress up. This last visit we started with beef nachos which rock. For awhile that... More

I've been to other locations but this one is the best. The service is awesome and the food is seasoned and cooked right. Of course as with all applebee's they have a great menu at great prices that you can afford.

Applebees had a special for all the soup, salad and warm bread for $5.99. The soup and salad were great but they gave you one little breadstick. Unfortunately it took a long time to get the food and the restaurant wasn't very crowded, that was disappointing.

My husband and I used to come here all the time. Everytime we have come here within the past 3 or 4 years the food has been horrible. There was even a time when my husband said something about the way his steak was cooked and the manager gave him a hard time about it. We decided to try it... More

Find another place to eat. Their selection is not up to the same standards as the other Applebees. The service was awful. They couldn't remember what we ordered or even what was NOT on the menu. They attempted to make up for which was nice but it never should have gotten to that point.
