Went here for lunch and the food was so-so. It's better than mc Donald's or Burger King or Wendy's !

Waitress was not very attentive and pretty slow despite the fact that it was completely dead with minimal tables occupied! Food was ok,not too expensive for dinner with drinks for 2 and an appetizer.

I like this type of restaurant and travel a lot so I see many of them. I live close by but this place for some reason it just comes off as average. Never had a bad issue but no awesome dinner either. Must admit the specialty burgers are tasty though.

My husband and I received a gift certificate for applebees for our anniversary. I am also starting a new job so we decided to go out and celebrate both. We don't go out often so we were hoping to enjoy ourselves. Our waitress was nice but she kept forgetting things. She asked the table across from us to taste their... More

My wife and I went here for Veterans day. They treated Veteran to a free meal. Their selection was great. They really made all veterans welcome and were super nice. Food was very very good. The place was clean and decorated for us. We found nothing to dislike. We recommend this place for family and couples.

My Mom chose Applebee's for dinner tonight. I ordered the Savory Cedar Salmon. It appears the salmon is grilled in advance and the "savory sauce" applied on it early as well. The sauce and salmon were dry from being under a heat lamp too long. The vegetables were OK and as pictured. The remainder of our party had burgers, chicken,... More
