“Only adequate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

The food is rather expensive and in my opinion not that tasty. I do not like the new menu as much as the old menu selections.

“salutes veterans”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

always good menu, and will make it right if not served right the first time. Golden Apple club offers discount for seniors - ask. This restaurant always offers a free to vets on veteran's day and at other times; a nice touch!

“Yuck”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2012

I'm not a fan of these chain restaurants so that's already against it. The food here is very average. It may not be the worst meal you've ever eaten, but it definitely won't be the best. This town has so many great other places to eat, it would be a shame to waste a meal eating here. We used to go here frequently and I was always kind of ho-hum about it. Then I got food poisoning on the chicken pizza appetizer and we haven't been back.

“Worst applebees ever”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2011

I have eaten at this applebees a few times in the past year and each time has been awful. Service is horrible, food is absolutely awful. Only reason I have eaten there more than once is because of receiving gift cards.
