5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

13 of us went to Applebees after funeral visitation. The staff was so nice, service was good and food was good as well.

“Food is very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

The food has always been consistent. I really like the Santa Fe Chicken Salad. Order only the half order. The alcohol is too pricey though.

“Great Service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

As far as the cuisine goes, it's an Applebee's. But our server was amazing. I didn't get her name but she was helpful and FAST. Thank you Applebee's!

“AMY is a great server!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2010

I have been to Clinton twice now for two different events. Both times I stopped in Applebee's. I happened to have the same server both times. Her name was Amy (she wears a beautiful butterfly pendant on her necklace) and she did a wonderful job. She is friendly, gives great suggestions, and attentive. She came back to clarify a request on my order to make sure it was done right and before she brought my check, she asked if I wanted dessert or anything else. So many servers just bring you the bill without asking if you wanted anything else, as if to say "hurry up and leave my station." I really like that she did not do that. The food was good as well...I had the lunch special pick two...salad & tomato bisque soup...yum!
