I ordered supper to go while staying at the nearby Hampton and was pleasantly surprised by the food. I had salmon which was a little overdone, but tasted good. The waitress was great and I would eat here again. Location was especially handy.

We stopped by and had a delicious lunch here and the service was excellent!! We stopped in at 11:30 am and they were not busy and had lots of seating and the waitress was right there to take our order and our drinks!! The restrooms...were very clean and it was a very pleasant experience!! I would highly recommend it!More

Bar area was very messy. Not very organized. Probably short of staff but wasn't impressed. Food was okay. This was the first time we have been disappointed in an Applebees. Outside was also messy with outdoor patio not being used.

Alicia, our server, made our day by being very pleasant, helpful and courteous.. We came in tired from travel and ended up having a great meal. Definitely recommend the 2 For 22 menu. Got a great steak, salad and sides. It was pretty busy, but...we could still talk and get recharged for a busy day tomorrow.More

My family grabbed lunch here ahead of a wedding. The restaurant is a chain and we knew what we could get for lunch. They did very well with quality and service.

We ate there and for the first time we could talk in an Apple Bees normally you can’t hear yourself think, but it was nice and we could talk without yelling. The staff was very friendly and our orders were quickly brought to us.

We stopped to eat here on the way out of town with four adults and three kids. There were probably five other tables in the restaurant and at least two waitresses. We never got a refill on our drinks, we asked for a condiment when...our food arrived and the waitress didn’t come back for 20 minutes to check on us - and still didn’t have the condiment we asked for. Our actual waitress didn’t even bring us our food. When we were leaving - it took another 15 minutes just to get our check once we asked for it - the manager asked how our meal was. I said it wasn’t great and the response was “I’m sorry to hear that! Have a good day!” Blew is off and clearly didn’t care about the service being provided. We will never be back.More

Gave it a 4th star because the bartender that served was very efficient, friendly and damned good at her job. Also got a 4th star in my rating because they had a very nice local IPA on tap and I love tasting local beers when...I travel around the country. Food was average like all Appelbee's.More

Average visit. Manager was behind the bar and was struggling. He was very slow, unable to ring up items himself. In fact, he had to have a server ring the items up each time which made everything that much slower. Also they aren't using the...normal Applebee's POS so they weren't able to accept normal forms of payment.More
