Been a while since I was there but boy am I glad I went with my girlfriend and we got Will as our server. Because we hadn't been together for a while, we played catchup for at least 4hrs. He never made us feel rushed or annoyed. He gave us recommendations and ways to get more bang for our buck.Food... More

Applebee's is not one of the family's choice locations, but I always go anytime someone has given me a gift card. We went on June 15, 2016 and the food and service was about what we would expect from this restaurant - average. It wasn't bad, but it didn't impress us enough to want to come back any time soon.

Took my boyfriend for his birthday Saturday the 16th, had the worst service of my life food was cold and it took hours for us to get anything, and the manager waited on us not the waitress.

Service and food are excellent. We go for the healthy menu due to diet restrictions. The food is very good and the portions are quite ample,

Spouse and I eat here frequently. We each have our favorite selections from the menu. One is French Onion soup. We only know of one other place in town that serves it. My only concern is that I feel there steaks are getting to be over priced, so I have steered away from their steaks and order that at different... More

Average at best. Was there with another couple food was served hot but was bland. Bourbon street steak was sizzling on the tater with mushrooms and onions, however had to be buried in A1 to have flavor. 4 cheese macaroni with chicken tasted as though someone had dropped sugar on it. Way too sweet for what should've been a great... More

I've always been a sucker for AppleBee's appetizer sampler. Tonight I was in town & some friends decided on going to AppleBees. We arrive around 9pm on a Friday & sat at the bar. Our bartender was very friendly & only check my ID. I'm 30 but she said I looked 17 so that made me feel good. I ordered... More

Its what you come to expect from Applebee's, great service with good food. Located on the south end of town away from the heavy traffic of town. Nice clean place to eat.

Other then the hot wings I found the food so so. I ordered a new menu item, Thai salad, far from meeting my expectations.Having lived in Thailand aka Siam for over 5 years The salad was far from a Thai flavor and rather bland the shrimp on it was like rubber. Do not recommend that new item.

The food is good. The price is right. And the service is excellent. They have a special margarita for $5 that was very tasty. And who can argue with the 2 for $20 dinner prices.
