We have eaten at Applebee's before and figured what could go wrong. Just average bar food right? This location is not very good. It did not seem busy but we were hungry. Over seasoned and tasted like " old" oil. My husband had a hog something pulled pork but it did not look like pulled pork Needless to say I... More

Stopped in for dinner during a torrential thunder storm. Staff was quick and friendly. Food was excellent. Had to wait a few extra minutes because they were making a fresh batch of soup and it wasn't ready yet. Well worth the wait. Rain stopped as I paid the check.

When in town we have brought large groups of people with us and found the service and food to be very good. They are accommodating and have a good selection on the menu.

Was very pleased with the service , staff was very friendly and proficient. The new updated menu was very pleasing I had the maple mustard salmon with grilled vegetables and sweet potato was excellent combination and very tasteful! Wife had the American burger the onions are mixed in the burger and a little over powering the flavor. Otherwise great.

Our friends had eaten here 3 nights earlier and had a TERRIBLE experience. My friend and I thought we'd give it another chance to make sure it wasn't just dumb luck. It wasn't. It took at least an hour for our APPETIZER to arrive, it took 15 minutes to get my coffee, another 5 to get some sugar (I wound... More

Applebee's never fails with their food but it seems their portions are getting smaller. Or maybe I was just really hungry! I got the grilled chicken, Mac & cheese & grilled veggies. Everything was really good. Service was acceptable.

We stopped in to try and have a nice steak dinner after a day of being on the road and sight seeing. We were sadly disappointed. Our waitress forgot to put our appetizer in, and when she did it seemed to delay our entrees significantly. Then they brought us out the same appetizer a second time after we finished our... More

Located next to the hotel we stayed at, it was nice to be able to walk to and from dinner. The food was good, there was beer on tap and service was above average. All in all a nice experience.

Thank Marty D
