Not a bad place to eat. Not exceptional but very much what you expect from an Applebee's. That is nit a bad thing.

Bar service good & to go service good. The food is good with a good menu of items and served quickly.....if that is important, The atmosphere can be a bit loud at times and some of the many TV's are better than others.

We go here when we have a large groups. It seems to be able to accommodate us and everyone can find something they like. Servers are usually friendly and helpful. The 2 for $20 option is good value.

Service is hit or miss. Food is consistent. Love the riblets but find the variety and portion size lacking of most of the menu. Reminded us of why we eat here only once every few years.

Server said OK. when I got it, it was shrimp. (Not servers fault. Kitchen's fault) They agreed to fix it. I got it back in a minute... More
