Gma had the cedar grilled lemon chicken which was light and savory. I ate 3/4 before l was comfortably full. Must mention sharing mozzarella stick appetizer with 14 year old granddaughter. Each had 2 with a few left over to take home. She had chicken fingers and fries. She said "no one can mess up chicken fingers! Refills on strawberry... More

Two of us had pork chop dinners along with the sides, and I opted for the chicken quesadilla. Mine was dried out without sour cream or guacamole, but a red and a green salsa, yet both were too spicy for me. The pork chops were overdone and our request to get one side early to stave hunger was not obliged.... More

Like going here when with friends. Not bad pricing- food is always good- service is good. I will continue to come here. Good place

If there is one thing Applebees does best it is the "Perfect Margarita". For me the food is chain quality which we all expect . However, on my last visit I was quite disappointed by the menu this time. I don't like spicy, Cajun, jalapeno, Tex/Mex, etc. As I looked at the menu it seemed most entree items (not sandwiches)...

They have recently remodeled. Nice atmosphere. Gets a bit noisy when it is really busy. They have a new menu with a few lower calorie meals. On Friday and Saturday evenings from 5pm to 6:30 pm be prepared to wait. Come early or eat late on those days.

Food is always good. We love their 2 for $20. Great choices on it. Staff is always friendly. Great atmosphere. As with any restaurant on Fri. & Sat. nights there will be a wait. Only negative is compared to other places their cocktails are more expensive.

While the restaurant was very busy when we arrived, we were able to get a seat after a short wait. Our server was at our table right away, welcomed us and gathered our drinks. We were able to order our food shortly after being seated and the food was served very quickly. It was hot, tasted great and there was... More

Pretty average chain restaurant. We came in for a late dinner and were seated in the bar area. Our server was quick and pleasant, but not too friendly. Food was prepared well and met our expectations.

Such a disappointment! We were looking for a good meal on Labor Day. Dear hubby suggested Applebee's. Reluctantly, I acquiesced. He ordered their "brunch burger" and said it was good. (Looked like a grease bomb to me -- it had a fried egg, bacon + hash browns on it.) I tried the shrimp & spinach salad. Not very tasty. Our... More
