I'm willing to bet this is like every other Bee's in the country. Food is usually ok. Drinks are ify- sometimes the bartender knows what they are doing, sometimes they don't and at $6.00/$7.00 for a mixed drink I'm not too happy when they can't make a classic cocktail. Wait staff is usually friendly.

Went here on a Monday, day after Xmas. Place was crowded as expected. Waitress was very friendly and quick with our beverages. When our food came out to the table, I was disappointed. Both mine and my wife's burgers were charred way too much. I even pulled burnt burger off mine and set it to the side. Everyone else's meals... More

This restaurant is very close, within walking distance to our hotel. Enjoyed a very good supper here. Typical Applebee's fashion. This chain is about the same no matter where you are. A mid range priced, typical menu, however all of us were very pleased with our food & drink. Was a bit later than supper hour, service was a bit... More

It's Applebee's. It's not delicious. It's decent. It's the same all over the country. The beer selection isn't great. The food is pretty good.

There is not many places to eat in this town. You will be ok eating here. Friendly staff. Traditional chain setup will small town appeal.

We like to eat here because it's close to the hotel where we stay. Started out with Blue Moon's. We both had the new wood fired grilled meat. My wife had the chicken bowl with mashed spuds and I had the thick cut pork chop, cooked medium. Everything was fantastic.

We at dinner there after a long day of traveling. We had good service and good food. The Olympics were on every channel and we got to enjoy some swimming. Nice family restaurant.

We decided to have a sit down dinner before going to the movies. I had not been to an Applebees in 10 years as I am not normally a fan. The hostess seated us promptly and the waitress came to the table within 5 min of our arrival. The menu had quite a few different options. I choose something bland... More

Service was outstanding, but the menu is generic Applebee's. Has a bad beer selection. Food is a heart attack waiting to happen, but for most in Clinton that might be welcome.

This is like Applebees everywhere in the USA (or at least ones that I have been to) with same set up, same menu and same general ambience – clean, decent menu, reliably pleasant food but all a bit boring and repetitious. Here the food was as expected – nice but without being anything special (perhaps what you might expect from... More
