Typical Applebees. Food was ok but french fries cold when served. My main issue was with server Robert who was unattentive - probably because he knew the lady in the next door booth. Waited and never managed to attract his attention to give us more water. Also waited 29 minutes to manage to attract him for our bill. We heard... More

The staff was a less than competent and the food was cold in the middle. If you are going to microwave everything, make sure it is hot at least. The tables were sticky and there was greasy residue on the ketchup bottles and salt and pepper shakers.

We ended up picking Applebee's for late dinner (opened till midnight) since most of other restaurants were closed. Good pick! The restaurant has the look-and-feel of a typical american diner (central bar, TV screens with sports, comfy booths on the side), but the food was above the bar in both choice and quality. Price is overall reasonable (~$15 per dish,... More

Its always a challenge to travel and find a restaurant that fits everyones needs. If you are craving a burger, go to Peppery, Diamondback Grill or Standard Pour. Good bar food, service is pretty consistent and friendly.

Good neighborhood location for lunch or dinner. Good specials and a menu that varies from time to time. Friendly service and a nice happy hour. We like to save room for the Apple Chimi Cheesecake.

Yes it's a franchise but the food is certainly a cut above . If you don't want the drive through but high dollar trendy places aren't on the list then the pleasant surroundings , fast service and a great steak should fit your needs pretty well. I had a really excellent steak and fresh cooked vegetables, no complaints here, will... More

Food is ok. It's kind of like if fast food and a actual restaurant had a baby this is what you get but I guess you can't expect much from a chain restaurant

The price might be okay if they cared about the service. We have been here far too often. The only time that we got even okay service was the most recent visit. Our waiter was new, so it's only a matter of time before he catches on. The time before this, we sat across from a young couple with a... More
