Love Applebee's and their app deals! Especially when they are half off at certain times through the day! However, the service here has went down hill immensely! Everytime we order, it is always wrong! But they always fix it so nicely, and that keeps us coming back! :) My service dog was welcomed with open arms as well!

This restaurant has serious problems and one star is too a high rating. My husband and myself sat at the bar last night for close to 20 minutes before any one took our drink order, we were the only ones sitting at the bar. Everyone was more worried about opening a cash draw that was broken than taking care of... More

Two visits this month, and both had big struggles with premier menu items. The manager didn't even bother to come out and threw the waitress under the bus. We were LOVING Applebee's this spring. Don't know what the sudden change was.

We were told our wait would be about 15 minutes despite open tables. We weren't in a hurry, so it wasn't a big deal. Once seated, our waitress promptly delivered our drinks and took our order. After waiting 30-35 minutes for our food, it came out. The chicken cavatappi my father ordered was cold, the sandwich I had was warm,... More

Apathetic management. I frankly won't ever patron this place again. Within two weeks I've been here twice, once with my wife and received cold food, then again with my parents and received a burger that the kitchen couldn't be bothered to make correctly. The first time the management didn't speak with me, the second time the management was annoyed that... More

I don't care much for applebees because every one I've been in has had bad to horrible service. The food is usually mediocre to dwcent. This applebees, however, had excellent service and the burgers were great. I highly recommend this applebees.

The MOD and Mika our server were clueless. We eat there all the time. This the first time we have been treated so rudely that we left. I can't remember being treated so badly.

We stopped here for dinner - 6:45 on Saturday - on our way to Colorado. After reading a couple reviews about bad service, we considered not stopping. However, we had a wonderful server and the food was delicious. The wait for our food was very reasonable especially considering the restaurant was full. We had the new green chili nachos and...

All we ordered was a Caesar salad & a chicken quesadilla & a house salad.....it took FOREVER. The service & server we nice but the kitchen needs to speed things up, I'd say. It was a bitter cold, icy night & it was warm & inviting inside.
