Lunched here with family, the food was awesome, dessert was pretty good too. Loved that they had tablets for the kids to play on (for a small fee of $.99) the only thing that I was disappointed in was the host (Seth) he was very short with us when we asked questions and just acted as if he hated the...

Food was fine and the car-side service for "to-go" orders is always convenient. Staff remembered to include tableware which is always appreciated.

My family used to eat here about once a month, but it's been less and less lately due to the quality of food and service. Because of the poor service we received on our last dine in visit, we opted for take out tonight. Our daughter only got a few bites into her dinner before telling us it tasted funny... More

This is a good example of why standardized chains work. You show up, it looks like an Applebee's, tastes like an Applebee's, feels welcoming as Applebee's, good staff like an Applebee's, so as the saying goes: if it quacks like a duck it must be a duck! There was nothing positive nor negative to set this location aside from other... More

The food is good, but the slow and unresponsive service needs to improve! The hour long waits in line for a set can be eliminated if they would hire a diswasher to clean tables, faster! I see a long line and several dirty tables with no one sitting there!
