“Standard bar and grill food with good service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This particular Applebees is very busy and very popular. Food always arrives hot and in a timely manner. Wait staff is great. Friendly, knowledgeable and always checking to make sure everything is good. Drinks were constantly replenished and specials were recommended if you couldn't decide.

“Typical Chain Restaurant - Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

As with all Applebee's restaurants (hence the 'Average' rating), the food is good, the staff friendly, and the atmosphere pleasant. My wife and I enjoy dining here. The usual drawback is that it gets really busy and expect to wait for a table unless dining early -or- using their call-ahead seating option.

“Average meal and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We recently went to Applebee’s for dinner and in one word it was average. The food, service, everything was average. We were there on a Monday evening and it was not very crowded at all, maybe 1/3 full. We were seated right away, and our server came shortly after that for drink orders.
Some of our party tried the 2 for $20.00 special – 1 appetizer and 2 entrees. That was a good deal, and worked out very well. The other person in our party tried the Southwest Jalapeño burger with fries.
Considering the restaurant was not very busy, our overall service was slow. The food was long in coming out, drinks were not refilled, the waiter barely checked how things were prepared, and he wasn't around when we wanted to pay the check..
The food was OK at best. The appetizer came out mildly warm with not a lot of flavor. The burger was good with candied jalapenos but with a soggy bun and way too much cheese. The three cheese penne pasta was bland. The bourbon chicken and shrimp however was very tasty.
The prices were decent, especially with the 2 for 20 special. Again, all in all, it was average.
