If you've seen an Irish Pub or sports bar you had a good idea of what you can expect from an Applebee's restaurant. We've had better service on prior visits. In order to be served more quickly on a Friday evening, we sat at the bar area. The waitress brought menus took our drink order and gave us extra time... More

We like their 2 for $25 deal, and this time, my husband upgraded to the larger steak for $3 more. The service was good, the food delicious, and we were full when we left.

Standard Applebee's fare. This location is usually fairly busy because there are only a handful of sit down restaurants in this area.

We ordered the 2 meals for $20. The appetizer, boneless wings, was excellent and the ranch dip was an excellent accompaniment. I ordered the lemon chicken with rice. Chicken was very good but I had to return the rice which was not only tasteless but definitely undercooked - our waitress was gracious, apologized and brought me another serving but still... 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

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 more....

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
