Visited on a business trip. I literally couldn't wait to finish my dinner and leave, it smelled so bad. I sat at the bar and think it might have been the bartender but not entirely sure. Ordered the sirloin stir fry, it was OK but most pieces of beef had fat and/or gristle. I would stay away.

This is not the place for a large group of people...if you consider 6 couples a large group. The service was horrendous and the food just as bad....not a good way to kick off the weekend.

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.
