“Best chain in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

In general, if we visit a chain when travelling we choose Applebee's first. In my experience, this particular restaurant is one of the best for food.

“Great local place for good food and couple of drinks”

Always find the food to be hot and done as per request and also find the staff here top notch. Been going here for quite some time now and always have a positive experience.

“Specials Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The two for $20, turned out to be disappointing. The menu and the waitress both said that the entrees were full-sized, but that was not the case. My husband had the chicken fingers and there were only 4 with some french fries. I had the riblets and there were 4, as well. They were really hard to eat since each piece had 4, about 1" square, bones in each piece, rather than the one long piece of bone, hence riblets, I guess. They tasted good, but it was really off-putting trying to get around all those bones. We were a party of 8, and other people at our table seemed satisfied with their meal. Someone else at our party ordered the riblets platter, and he had 6 pieces, that's how we knew that the two for $20 were not full portions. The steak on the wedge salad/steak special was really tiny. I would not order those again. Service was quick and courteous and the manager stopped by to ask how everything was. No one complained.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

The food is usually good, the atmosphere is noisy, which in our case is not good, because we go to "catch up" with friends-hard to do because of the noise.
