10pm Friday night went for dinner. Out of all the things we wanted! Hope you'll have better luck! Don't think I'll try this location again

We'd been on the road for 11 hours. We were tired, grumpy, and hungry. So we stopped in here. Our server was a lovely, perky (and not annoyingly so) woman named Jolene. She had that quality that made you feel like you were her most important table. She was attentive, and anticipated our every need. The food was good...nothing necessarily... More

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
