Stayed at a hotel right behind this Applebee's and enjoyed a nice meal. Thus chain restaurant gets a bad rap sometimes. We have always found their food to be good and their salads as fresh as any we've had other places.

If you've been to the Applebee's chain, you know what to expect. Food quality and service were good and on par with other chain restaurants

A huge menu of all your favorites, including soups and salads. Great prices and attentive staff make this Applebees one of my "must go to" while in the area.

When you can see finger prints on menus, salt and pepper, front door, imagine what the kitchen must look like.

It's next door to two hotels and has beer. What more? Well, I'm not enthused about the chain's menu. Here’s the deal. I eat plain ol’ food. I know my preferences and I don’t like weird glop deposited on or beside my main course, which should be meat. If menus have words like “jicama,” “gorgonzola,” “panko,” “chimichurri,” and adjectives ending... More

This summer, my mother-in-law and I took my husband to Applebees to celebrate his birthday. We chose some items from the fire-grill menu. The food was good, just a little too grilled for my taste, but overall okay. I had a nice drink from the bar - a raspberry cosmopolitan! I have always been pleased with their cocktails. The restaurant... More

We stopped in after a horse show, and we were to tired to go far. The service was fine, our waitress very nice, and accomadateing. The food, we had three different meals were awful. I do not ever eat at fast food, or chain, but I must say the quality of food served was just poor.

I only chose this place to eat because it was in the same lot with my hotel. Applebee's is ok but just not great. I think they are overpriced for what they offer.

Went there late after a wedding for drinks and apps. Food came out quickly and was good. Bartender was attentive. Restaurant and restrooms seemed clean.

This place was a disappointment. It was fairly empty on a Wednesday afternoon, but service was still slow. That gave us plenty of time to look around. The ceiling tiles look stained and dirty and the carpets are pretty much the same. The food was typical Applebee's. Nothing special here.

Thank Crcb
