The food is the regular menu of an Applebee's. Wait staff friendly and attentive. Does take quite awhile to get order even when not busy.

The server was friendly. We were sat quickly but I do have some advice, when sitting larger people, they likely need a spacious table. I saw a hostess attempt to sit a larger couple at a very tight table with little room. I observed the couple look at each other and then back at her as they asked for another... More

I decide to try the Fire grilled steak. It was like eating a boot. Super tough! I was cooked perfect the cut was cheap and thin. I've eaten the same steak at other locations and it was great. I don't know what happened here.

Applebee's has been around for a number of years and they have changed menu offerings many times. The current menu of 2 selections for the price of one offers many options for those who enjoy a dinning experience of appetizers and main course sharing options. Quantity is copious and quality is average.

My favorite dish is the fiesta lime chicken, but they offer many options. I was not impressed with their sirloin steak. The desserts are scrumptious.

Food and service is great. Kids enjoyed their meal. Husband and I ordered the 2 for $20. Both of our meals were good. We shared the spinach dip as an appetizer and it was good. Service was great! Our youngest had to have her corndog replaced twice for being cold/frozen. They took this meal off the ticket and gave us... More

Husband ordered some Philly sandwich and it was good. I ordered the Shrimp Stir Fry from the low calorie menu. It was good. Meals and drinks were brought out quickly. Drinks were refilled fast. Waitress was nice! We got there right at 11 so it wasn't that busy, but did fill up quickly! Everyone seemed satisfied. Music was from the... More
