I ordered a cedar lemon chicken entree that looked like a generous portion that covered a dinner plate on menu but when it arrived to the table the whole portion was no bigger than the size of my fist. Wow, photos can be so deceiving. The chicken tasted fine but the portion size left me wanting... read more

Applebees is supposed to be a grill restaurant. Yet, multiple times when I have ordered a rare steak, it has come very over cook (I would struggle to even describe it as medium). If an American grill can't even get such as simple dish right, then something has gone very wrong. Service is good and the deserts are good (but... More

Love. Love. Love. Love. Love. With spinach and artichoke dip and ceasar salad. Samplers are amazing with a white peach sangria

The food was not bad. My steak was not really medium well but it was juicy and tasted pretty good. The service was slow it our server was friendly. It's a good place to eat and I would go back.

The specialty Burgers were without much flavor and smallish, but the bun and plate size made it look bigger. Plenty of staff all around, yet most were conversing with each other and not the customers. Lucky for us it wasn't crowded, so our service was average. For the most part, it met my expectations of what this restaurant would be... More

Just got home from eating there. Very impressed with most area's. Had the Cross Rib plate. Very good. Service very good. I had a Perfect Margarita & it also was very good. Well prepared. I also liked the new menu & offerings. A little lengthy but great new items. Located fairly close to Purdue University so it is usually very... More
