Came for lunch and ordered lunch special. Food was okay but service was very slow. Server said there was no manager on duty and that the kitchen was very backed up, Restaurant not very crowded so likely management problems.

We ordered take out, service was great. Food not so. My husbands burger was so over cooked it was like shoe leather, his bun was burnt, one piece of onion. The fries were so rubbery, you could tell they were reheated.

Good selection of foods. Nice décor, only concern is very noisy in there. Always a wait, so come prepared to sit for awhile.

Thankfully, Applebee's stays open late on weekdays. Within our week's vacation, we went to this Applebee's, as well as the one in Latham. Both times, our food was good, as was our service. There's always plenty to choose from on the menu, and it's nice to not have to worry about trial and error when dealing with a chain restaurant.

Only my second time at an Applebee's. The first time, at a different location, was very nice. Blackened shrimp & broccoli cavatappi, berry sangria, cafe Nelson, all just ok. Brownie dessert was good. Service was prompt and friendly. Would suggest making the trip to a Chili's for similar chain restaurant food.

I love the idea they show the calories. This makes going out to eat a treat and you can enjoy what you are eating. They have a nice selection.

I'd say this was a 3 & 1/2 star experience. The chain tries to provide more of a local feel by personalizing the decor with photos of local sports teams (high school & college), etc. The booths & tables are spacious. The chain food is fine. They don't routinely give you bread or rolls with an entree, unless it's specified... More

I stopped in on Veterans Day to have lunch. I was greeted with friendly host staff and I requested that my party sit at the bar. We were directed and handed menus. I am a Veteran so I got a special menu. The bar tenders Rolyn and Victoria were superb friendly and attentive. Smiles all around. The Manager was friendly... More

My family and I have been coming here for years and our favorite is the nachos, but Every time we come Lately the portion gets smaller and smaller. Less goodies on top leaving you with a bunch of chips and nothing to put on them. For the amount they charge they should be piling those chips high and covering them... More
