Applebee’s has their act together as their business model works well in all locations. TVs all over showing a variety of channels, large bar, and a wide menu selection. The servers exceed your expectations and this location is great. Plenty of parking.

Our waitress made our meal great! Amanda was very attentive and friendly to us during our visit. Yes, this was chain comfort food, but we had driven all day (9 hours) and Amanda's care and conversation made us feel welcome.

We weren't disappointed, this is a good Applebee's. The people were friendly, the food was fresh, it was an overall good visit. Applebee's does a good job with consistency with their restaurants.

Overall the food and service was good. It's Applebees so most of the food is premade and just heated and mixed together, but it still wasnt bad. I would go again. I can't say that for all locations.
