“Just average food”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I have not been thrilled with these restaurants. The food is just average. The service was good though. We used to eat here a lot but the food has gone down hill. The chicken tastes like it is so full of additives and most things taste very salty. Our chips were dripping in grease. They just glistened from oil. The steak was ok, good taste but a little grisly. And the drinks are very watered down. I like the atmosphere but just not worth going for the food.

“Enjoyed the meal”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

My brother-in-law and I stopped by here before we returned home. We had good service, my food was pretty good, my brother-in-law didn't think his was as good (but he ate it, so it couldn't have been that bad). This one is close to Menards, so it was convenient for us to stop by before we returned home to Hardin County. Our waiter did a good job keeping the glasses filled, checking on us, etc, but wasn't hovering. Since it was a lunch crowd, it was a bit noisy, but we were over by a window back in a corner, so we didn't get the full blast of the bar area. My wife and I like this place as well.

“Not bad for a chain on a busy Friday night”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stayed near the hotel cluster at I-75, exit 125. Wait lines at the other restaurants were more than an hour each. This Applebee's was only 10 minutes. Worth it. I had the half-rack of ribs with the sweet and spicy sauce. Very good! Stacy was an attentive server. Crowded, but not too bad. Loud without being deafening. Good bet if you're looking for dinner.
