“Awful! Food was raw!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We used to eat here often but it has continuously went downhill. The service sucks! We sat forever waiting for the server to take our drink order and the place wasn't even busy. Then we got our buffalo wings and my husband cut into one and it was RAW! I will not be eating here again until things are changed.

“Better Food Quality than most Applebee's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stopped here before checking into our hotel. We weren't greeted right away, and it took some time for the hostess to figure out at which table to seat us. Our server was very friendly and greeted us right away. My husband ordered sweet tea, which the server said he brewed just a couple of minutes prior. My husband said the sweet tea was pretty good, actually. He ordered riblets, and said the sauce was better than any of the Applebee's he'd been to in Ohio. The women's restroom was clean, and the dirty tables were cleared off right away. For a chain, this location is solid.

“It's good for a chain”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We had a very nice waitress. She brought our food out hot and kept refilling our drinks. Food was good for being a chain. It was a pleasant stop while traveling through the area.

“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

For a consistently good* dining experience, Applebee's delivers. Good food & beverages, great serving staff, and a nice atmosphere. The reason for the asterisk? We don't recommend dining after 9PM. For some reason the kitchen staff really goes downhill after that time--long waits (even when they're not busy), food that isn't prepared properly or arrives cool to cold. Unless you like kareoke, avoid Wednesday evenings. Be advised that Friday & Saturday evenings can be very busy, so you may have a 20 - 30 minute wait for seating.
