Went there last Tuesday for something to eat and a beer. Noticed they had Cold Snap on tap. Not sure what it is? Try it....just not here. Anyway, inquired how much the big Brutus beer was that they have in the large pilsner glass. I was told by Christina(bartender and very nice) that it was 6.50 or so. She added that the better value would be to order it as the two for one special. I'm like, "okay"...Not really giving it much thought. Come to find out that the 14 ounce is about 7.50 versus 6.50 for the 20 ounce. I'm no mathematician but I'm pretty sure something doesn't add up here. Deceptive marketing at its best. Took me four emails to corporate and a phone call with the local store to confirm all of this.

This Applebee's seems to have been around forever, and offers consistently good food and service, but the décor is decidedly dated and could use an update. We meet there once a month for business meetings, which is nice, but the meeting room is the same as the rest of the place - in need of spiffing up!

Ate there three days ago with my daughter and 2 year old grandson. Although our server was fine, the place in general just seems old, run down and dirty. It's definately in need of a through cleaning and make-over. Just 2 miles from our house....I doubt if I'll go back to this location.

P.S. It's shabbiness seemed to attract a "different" caliber of people also. There was a table of 3 grown women, 1 man, and a teenage girl near us. One woman kept getting up and staggering to the bathroom. The last time she stood up, she had obviously peed all over herself because the entire back of her jeans were soaked.

Went to Applebee's with our gift card and had a hard time deciding on what I wanted - everything looks yummy on the menu! Decided on the steak medium rare with a portobello mushroom and creamed spinach. OK, I was not at Long Horn's or Outback, I know, but GET OUT! as Chef Ramsey would say. My steak was well down all around except for a small area in the middle that was red and tepid. My veggies were quite tasty and the server was fast and professional! The manager was there in minutes and offered another steak but I declined and the cost was taken off the meal. Not to waste food I took it home for my dog who will eat any meat cooked any way!Geting ny next steak at a steakhouse or my backyard grill (as soon as I get one of those!)

15 minutes just to take our drink order. Another 7 to deliver it. The food was good and delivered by someone other than our waiter. Loud Dj in a place where frankly no one wants to hear him. I told the manager and he offered us dessert. He can keep it I called him back at the end told him the food was good but the service sucked and it is his fault for being such a rotten manager. My opinion. Enough excuses from clueless managers. There are enough quality people out there
