Love the lunch menu during the week, I wish they had it on the weekends too. I have never had a bad meal there. The staff are friendly and the place is easy to get in and out in a timely manner

Our meals were pretty blah at best. The music was also like going back in time to the early 2000s...strange.

I had lunch and they weren't too busy. It just took a VERY LONG time for someone to notice we had not been waited on. 3 ladies standing and talking within 5 feet of us in a corner tho. I love Applebee's altho in the past month and two different states it was NOT a good experience. Both food and... More

This was not a good experience at Applebees. The waiter was very poor. We had to wait for water, and then wait for a beer. The food was fair at best. Place was very noisy and there did not seem to be organization among the servers. While traveling, this has been one of the poor choices we made.

We visited twice at this restaurant, once in the evening and a second time for lunch the next day. We were impressed with the precise service the evening before but also surprised at the inaccurate service for lunch the next day. They were friendly each time, even the lunch manager came to the table to ask how everything was. I'm... More

Applebee's was on top of their game tonight! Great waitress, drinks and food. The two for $20 special made the meal affordable to have drinks. The Cajan chicken with blackened shrimp was very good and the potatoes had a great taste as well. I dropped a star because they had the basketball games very loud. I was thrilled when they... More

I'm not a fan of Applebee's but some friends wanted to meet here. I think the food is just like fancy fast food- too mass produced. I ordered the brunch burger and it was pretty good. Other than that, the restaurant is very noisy with all the TV's and the seating is way too crowded for my taste. The booths... More

I'd pick other places to eat if honest, but it's not bad. Just a matter of preference. Good service, clean, food is ok.

We stopped in and My wife ordered the baby back ribs and I had the brisket enchilada. Mine was ok but the side of rice was clumpy and something? The problem was my wife could hardly eat the ribs. I decided to try hers and it was like chewing a leather. Was not too impressed with them. Watier was new... More
