Good food, but watch the menu closely and check with waitress/waiter to make sure you get what you want. They have some items on the menu with stickers and some of them are actually two different items with different number of sides.

We decided last minute to eat here as a family. The parking lot was nearly full, with more cars coming in behind us. I figured we'd have to sit and wait for a table. Got seated as soon as we walked in. As busy as it was, our waiter was extremely nice and made sure to remember to check on... More

Hostess, was very friendly, The place was clean even though it was super busy. My waitress Cassandra was very friendly and helpful with our special requests. Our food came in a timely matter and everything was great. She checked on us in a timely matter. (not too much to be annoying) All three of us enjoyed our meal.

There were a few parties of around a dozen people (we were one of them). We ordered simple dishes and yet it took over two hours to get them. I ordered an All-You-Can-Eat Soup, Bread and Salad. This took over an hour to get to the table for the first serving and the bread never showed up. They forgot my... More

This Applebee's restaurant is always busy and yet the service has always been excellent, the food warm and prepared just they way you would like it. You can also enjoy an adult beverage at the bar while you wait 10 minutes or less for a table. This is just a good family style restaurant that the prices are reasonable, especially... More

This is a standard family restaurant. Nothing really sets it apart. Fair pricing, ever changing staff. The menu doesn't change often, so you can determine a 'usual' if so desired.

Had not been here in a while, but we were impressed with the attentive staff and variety of menu selections. We were able to order what we considered to be healthy meals and enjoyed excellent service. The sauteed vegetables seemed a little extra oily, but the Chicken/Portabella mushroom meal was very tasty, and generous in portion size.

I'm not a fan of 'chains' and this establishment is no exception. Typical of Applebee's everywhere: noisy, pictures accompanying menu items, et cetera.
