A while back Applebee's was a solid go-to for a fair meal at a good price, not so much. Food was bland, staff was bored and the floor was sticky. Perhaps it was this location, I don't know but for me it was not a...More

Thank you Applebee's for honoring all of the veterans and active duty military today! It means more to them and their families than you will ever know! We love Applebee's and eat here often. Thanks again!
