Arrived here to eat just before closing time. Place closes at 12 midnight, we arrived at 11:50 PM, but, they took us in anyway. Received faster than usual service than I have gotten from Applebee's in the past, probably due to time? I was disappointed by the size of my sirloin. Seems to me they have decreased the size of...

We have eaten here a few times. The food is ok, sometimes I feel it's more out of a can than fresh but thier is a big menu to choose from. The restaurant is very nice and good for the family or just hanging out with friends. They have a bar and TV for just relaxing.

I was quite please with service, and overall just able relax after a long day at work. The bartender knows her drinks for well, and very polite. I would highly recommend stopping by if you are in the neighborhood.

We had very good service. The food was hot and delicious. The bar drinks were tasty. Like the tablets to pay for the meal at the table. Made it convenient.

My husband and I received a gift card to Applebee’s and decided to give it a shot. It was fairly crowded at 6:30 on a Friday night so we asked if we could eat at the bar. Here’s a hint – if possible, ALWAYS EAT AT THE BAR!! The service was amazingly quick, the bartenders were a joy to chat... More

Never do we come in and have bad service or bad food. GM Will has a very well trained staff, and always has enough on shift to cover a crowd. Mangers Reggie,Neza, Daniel, Reggie and Sean when on duty are everywhere in the restaurant be it seating customers, walking the floor to check on guests, busing a table or setting... More

You ask about Applebee's, its a typical BAR that serves meals. The meals are good, the servings are on the smaller side. The Service is fine if you are enjoying your DRINKS and wish to order more. Your meal is served rather abruptly, as the waitress would rather be serving your DRINKS. Sometimes you are made to feel that you... More
