Normal applebees, but did a great job getting us in and out in a hurry. Food was perfect and waitress was great.

I have ate at several Applebees throughout the US because usually they are handy to hotels and they're wait staffs are usually very good. The worst was in Visalia, California but one of the best was in a small Kansas town of Emporia. The three different meals we had were all excellent which is a miracle because my grandson is... More

A group of us had supper here. The consensus was everybody was disappointed in the food. Portion size was ok, food was bland and a few dishes were greasy. The rice on the side was dry and tasteless. Apparently the menu was the standard Applebee's list of food. The only upside was the friendly staff.

Stopped in after 9pm and had a great meal and top notch service by the waitress who was working in the bar area. The Chinese chicken salad was fresh and a very large portion.

Ordered 2 for 25$ Lots of food. two entrees, two sides, and choice of appetizer and drinks. Good food, ribs were delicious. Service was ok, waitress was scurrying as fast as possible. They were quite busy.

The waiter was visually upset that everything was taking so long to get but he kept up a good facade. The food was average, nothing special. The steak was dry and not what I expected. Atmosphere is a typical Applebees. They also ran out of a brand of beer that I wanted. I'll pass on this next time I'm driving... More

I had actually stopped going to Applebee's because of the lack of quality of food, so when I heard my group was going there I wasn't very excited; HOWEVER, I was surprisingly shocked at the changes they have made! The menu had lots of variety and our entire group was pleased with their food! So happy that Applebee's has stepped... More

My wife and I came in on 11/27/15 at around 9:45pm and was waited on by a heavier set guy with facial hair. He was the rudest waiter I have ever had. He was very short with us and very impatient. On top of that I ordered the mild wings he gave us the hot and he gave me the... More

We love Applebee's their food is very good and the portions large.. A bit pricey but we always share one dinner and order an extra salad.. We were traveling through this town on our way home. We found this restaurant across the street from our hotel. Yeah. Our server Caitlin was so pleasant and really made us feel welcome and... More
