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.

Among all Applebee's that I have visited around the country, this is "the one". What differentiates from the others is the very friendly staff. As I have always visited alone, this really makes a difference. During my stay in US, it was always a routine have lunch there.

The food was good when it finally arrived. My husband got his food long before I did. We had originally ordered and they were out so had to re order. The manager came to our table and was very apologetic for the re order and the delay in service. He made things right and we left very satisfied customers.

We stopped for dinner and a beer after a long day on the road. I absolutely love the chicken won ton tacos here and my ol mans burger and fries were good too. 5 bucks for a corona at happy hour was a bit much. Seriously, crank down the ac. It was too hot.

Went for lunch last week with a coworker at Applebee's. We were seated right away by a very nice hostess. Got our drink orders in without any issues. Then the wheels fell off the bus! Once the drinks came, they weren't refilled. Our appetizers came after our meal did. They food tasted alright. I was a fan of that Applebee's,... More

I ate there for lunch with a buddy recently. We sat at the bar (arriving at 12:04) and waited, at the bar, for 12 minutes to be recognized. The restaurant was about half full and the bartender was not busy. After about 35 minutes, we received our drinks and placed our order. The food came out, and mine was lukewarm... More
