I just left Applebee's and was very surprised at how it has changed since my last visit. When we walked in, no one was at the front to greet us. We waited for more than a minute and no one came so we sat ourselves in the bar area. We waited and no one came. When someone passed us, my... More

We found this location to be convenient to our hotel. Food is predictable, but good. Waitstaff is attentive without being overbearing. Noise level was a bit high for conversation.

This place has great customer service, and very friendly. Sometime the food could be a little hotter as well as the mash potatoes not burned. Other wise I enjoy this place.

We had not been to this applebee's in a while and now we remember why. We did the 2 for $20 deal with the boneless wings appetizer, I ordered the 3 cheese penne pasta and my wife had that American classic burger. She really wanted the steak that used to be on the 2 for 20 but is now on... More

Our food came out super greasy. The bar tender disappeared all the time so we never had full drinks. When we ordered chips we got half the order. I usually have great experiences at Applebee's but this one left a horrible taste in my mouth. We won't be back.

I have eaten at many Applebee's over the years and I have to say that I usually choose them when there are few other alternatives. While my meal at this Applebee's was good, it was , well, very small. It was part of their low calorie meals. I chose the Savory Cedar Salmon. It was well prepared and tasty...However, it... More

Clients suggested meeting so we could nosh and discuss some business. Paul, our waiter, was outstanding, frequently rechecking and refilling without being obtrusive. The new appetizer menu brought forth just one seemingly appetizing item, the brisket nachos. The portion was large, the taste just so so. Among the items that disappeared was the AYCE chips and salsa. The portion we... More

Haven't been to Applebee's for 6 month since we were out of town. Remembered the great appetizer platters we enjoyed. When we got there, much to our chagrin the entire menu had changed. Fortunately we had a super waiter. When we explained the items we were expecting to order, he was quick to suggest like items he thought we'd enjoy.... More

It seems this location just has a hard time keeping up with the other Applebee's. In the past the theme was to wait. Wait to be seated, wait to place order, wait for drinks, wait for food, wait for check. We visited again the other night. They were not busy at all. About 10 tables of customers in the whole...

I have eaten many times at Applebee's in the past and have come to the conclusion that I will only eat at one when I have no other choices. First off, no matter what Applebee's you dine at, you always seemed to be rushed....I don't know why that is, but that's the way it seems...Get 'em in, get 'em out....... More
