Had not been in this Applebee's for a while. Newer menu offering fire grilled hand cut steaks. The smell of a nice steakhouse greeted you as you opened the door. Our server Anthony was very attentive and explained menu and options, confirmed what we ordered, checked on us during the meal. I would recommend this restaurant to the surrounding community.

We visit often for the Monday night burger and beer special. The service is great, very attentive staff and the beer is ice cold in frosty glasses. I am a fan of the American standard burger, and have not had a bad one at this Applebee's.

The Food at this Applebee's is better than most Applebee's in my opinion. The Service is great, and the Food is excellent

Absolutely terrible service. I will let all people- friends, family, sports teams etc, to not go there. Never had that bad of service in my life and will not be going back ever again. Waited 1.5 hours for our food when we just wanted a quick dinner then off to a hockey game. Missed the hockey game and didn't get... More

Wife and I are especially fond of the 2 for $20 meal. I like the tender steak and my wife likes the delicious chicken. The atmosphere is cozy and quiet. The beverages are delicious. We eat there often.

The food and service here are better than a typical Applebee's, but overall it's very much a chain restaurant experience. The burgers, fries and appetizers were all good, but nothing was outstanding. The staff is nice, attentive, and quick.

We love Applebee's in general, but this one was very sub-par. Service was slow, and my shrimp were vulcanized. Never order seafood more than 300 miles from an ocean. Even the rids were mostly bone with a littler overcooked meat on them--someone this close to Iowa should know how to do ribs. Go to MacDonalds and save yourself a headache.

The food and service cannot be beat. Great every time. The onion rings are about the only bad thing. I think they have a new supplier. Way too much breaking. Our favorite thing is the sampler platter. That and a couple of beers and we are a happy couple.

I'm adding a review because it looks like everyone forgets about it. Yes it's a chain, yes it's formula food but more often than not if we don't feel like cooking and just want to go out for a bite this is our usual spot..food is affordable so no special occasion needed, usually not a long wait ( but they...

Service was bad. Please help me understand why they cluster customers in the same general area in the restaurant rather than spreading them out? It is annoying because I felt crowded when the store was only 1/3 occupied. Food was not very good (the Three Cheese Pene Pasta was awful). For a major brand... they really stink in the quality...
