Typical Applebee's except for the very slow service. It took ages to get our food after ordering and the waitress seemed unconcerned. The lack of a sense of urgency in this restaurant was palpable. After waiting to get my fried shrimp, which tasted ok, the waitress disappeared without bringing my promised cocktail sauce for the shrimp. We were on the... More

We were tired and hungry after being on the road for three days. This restaurant was very clean, and they made you very comfortable. Food was very tasty and prepared properly. Service was good and they kept your drinks topped off. Bathrooms were clean and the dinning room was organized and clean.

They are billed as your neighborhood bar and grill and that is what they really appear to be. An extensive menu of dishes which seem to be of their own design, good service and a very warm, family atmosphere make this a good place to go. If you are a local it is almost impossible be there and not see... More

When given the chance the husband and I like to sneak away to lunch or dinner here, the kids get their food choices - which have been spruced up quite nicely!! - and mom & dad have an amazing selection for happy hour. The food always gets to the table quickly and even on a busy Saturday night we never... More

Was eating at this applebees and witnessed the GM (asian female don't know her name) of this applebees degrade a young lady (hostess) in front of all the customers while she was trying to seat customers....needless to say I will NEVER patron this establishment again. Nobody deserves to be treated like that!

I like this Applebee's. All the servers were nice. I felt like they went out of their way to serve us. Didn't wait long for our food which means it was piping hot when it came to our table. The food was really, really good. The restaurant was clean and very organized. I will be back.

Service was not great. We were one of three tables occupied in the whole place. Waitress took our order, then went and sat with a couple at another table (saw others doing this as well). We waited quite awhile for our appetizers and when she got up, assumed she was getting them but turned out it was our dinner (Oriental... More
