There was 9 people in our group and the waitress was awesome. She went out of way to get us the best deal with what everyone was ordering. She put together deals so it came out cheaper for us in the long run. My husband had a bunch of coupons from donating palates so we used them. This waitress earned... More

We've been here often and some times the wait staff is great and other times it's been awful. Lately it's been great and the food's been great, too. We come here as a family, date night, ladies night out, and my hubby comes after hockey games with the guys.

I have never enjoyed Applebees as much as I do since they added half price appetizers! Favorites are the sweet potato fries, chicken wonton tacos and siracha shrimp.

We visited this restaurant several times 3-4 years ago and we were disappointed with both the food and service. However, we've been there twice over the past two weeks and everything is much better now. The food is what you'd expect and the prices are very good for the portions. The wait staff is very attentive and we are pleased... More

Met up with a group of friends at the bar during the late afternoon. Enjoyed some great appetizers along with an array of cocktails, beers and virgin drinks! Our server Mindy L. was very accommodating and quick. Appetizers were on special at 50% off and they were still full serving size.

I was here on a business trip. I normally try not to go to chains, but some of the local fare here was less than desirable...so I came here. I had a great waitress what was fun, fast, and pleasant.. had some great suggestions. I had the Thai Shrimp Salad (low calorie) and while it was not spicy hot, it... More
