Great meal, the server/waitress was fantastic, took very good care of us. The food was fantastic unlike any Applebee's I've experienced before. Pricing was comparable to most also. Highly recommend.

This one, as mostly all Applebees, would not disappoint if you are looking for American fare, friendly and efficient service, reasonable prices and nice clean digs. The French onion soup could use some improvement (too mushy), but the Tomato Basil was very good, both hot...More
