Ok. This is not the worst place we've eaten, but not the best either. That said, they could have been having an off day. Our server was very sweet, and tried hard to please us. The soup she served was in a hot bowl, but the soup was cold. She had it reheated for us. Then, honestly, hate to say... More

Ordered chicken tortilla soup, warm at best. Ordered 6 oz steak medium, came medium rare to rare. Blood everywhere. Could only stomach half. Bartender was nice, friendly, knowledgable. He offered to get a new steak but I'm not big on recooks 4 cheese Mac was good. Defiantly not my favorite Applebee's probably can find better place for dinner tomorrow

Sorry but nope. Went back on a Thursday night and boy was that a mistake. Apparently they have karaoke on Thursday nights. This would be ok if it wasn't so LOUD!! Our server was a waste. He sat behind us chatting it up with some other guys while we sat there trying to get his attention for well over 15... More

We met friends here for an early dinner. The old standby "Riblets" were as good as ever! The server was friendly, but we did have to go to hunt him for a couple of things that he forgot to bring. It was early, so not much of a crowd. Clean restaurant and friendly staff.

Had not been in one in quite a few years but needed to grab a quick bite before a customer visit. They all tend to look alike and this was no exception. I was greeted nicely and quickly seated. Waiter was fast. Had a grilled chicken avacado wrap that was very tasty . To many fries came with it and... More

Went to dinner tonight at 7pm and their was a sign saying due to the weather they were closing. Their were 30 people eating and drinking. I was shocked that they closed so early it was not that bad out. Will never eat at Applebee's again.
