Quite possibly the worst experience I've ever had at an Applebee's or similar concept. The server was constantly going out to smoke, the plate presentation was a mess, and the food arrived cold.

Let me start by saying I don't care for Applebee's and would never eat there; however, it was the pick of my business associate. The parking lot is full of trash, the menus were filthy as were the self pay machines (which translates that employees cannot be trusted with your credit card). The food options were limited and the quality... More

I reluctantly went back to this Applebees for dinner recently, my past few experiences were awful, actually just walking out the last time as the service was awful. We went back this time because we had a visitor that wanted to eat here. This time was slightly better, I mean, we got seated (last time we waited 20 minutes to... More

This is my neighborhood eatery and I always enjoy coming here. I've never had anything but stellar service here. It's alot of the same people that have worked here for a while so there's always a familiar face and alot of locals to run into. Amanda J is awesome! She gives excellent service and has a wonderful attitude. It seems... More

The chicken came out cold like refrigerated cold obviously precooked. They redid the order and it came back hot. Ok stuff happens but the portion size is just... More

So so service and food. The worst thing was that the soup and baked potatoes where only warm and it was slow to come out and not that busy. Ribs chewy and also not hot........Bathroom was disgusting.

Server was slow to come, slow to get drinks, and slow to return. Silverware was forgot about. Food was ok, but fajitas did not come with the toppings or tortilla wraps.

I stopped in with some friends after a function in the area. I didn't feel particularly welcome. Service was cold and slightly unfriendly. Things warmed up a bit just before the check was delivered. I wouldn't go back.

This Applebee's is near my home, and I eat there often. The food is usually decent (though on this visit my riblets were cold and needed to be reheated), and the service is sporadic. Good value on the food. Good selection.
