We had been frequent patrons of Applebee's and just moved away from going there. It had been about nine months. We like to go early because normally the restaurant fills up by 5:30. We were promptly seated and received our beverages along with menus and appreciated the changes that were made in the menu since our visit last year. The... More

Love Love Love their 2 for 20 special. And although I would like to try other dishes I always have their Oriental salad. Best in town! They have wonderful tall tables for long legs, the help is very friendly and if you are into sports, there is always a game of some sort on their many big screen televisions.

We had excellent service from our server Ashley and the food was delicious. You always know what to expect from Applebees, but my steak was cooked perfectly. The staff was friendly and the service was quick. It's a nice comfortable place to enjoy a meal with friends.

Yes its a chain, but its a good one. Everything we have tried over the years has always been full of flavor. This place is clean and the wait time has never been an issue. Indoor seating is good and and the outdoor is even better with the view. Service is quick and staff is knowledgeable about menu. Good variety... More

Busy as heck but our wait was not too long and the service and food were very good. It's a bit loud for my taste but my husband says the nachos are worth it!

Applebees has always been very consistent. Our meal was good. Our server did not spend any time. WE received the wrong salads and he just dropped them oof and walked away so quickly. it was kind of weird. We would start to say something and he was gone. But the food was good.

Party of 5 for dinner. Great service. Staff was very attentive. Very clean, including the bathroom. Meals were hot and delicious. Chicken, lime fajita wrap was yummy- had a bite of my sisters. I had the Mac and cheese with honey chicken- amazing. Will definitely have that again.

We ordered the baby back rib plate in the two for twenty-five dollar bracket. They were good and the sides that came with the ribs we enjoyed as well. There was enough we were able to carry some of it home in a carry out box. The staff took good care of us. It is good to go to a... More

I've had good experiences here and some not so good, probably more not so good ones. Most of the time I have had pretty good service but more often than not the food isn't up to par, especially for the price, and management isn't as good as the servers. I've gone in for a certain item and it's no longer... More
