“Great Lunch at Applebee's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is also close to the hotel. We met my wife's nephew and wife for a late lunch. The waitress was super, she was polite, jolly and attentive. It is nice to have a waitress with a personality and Katlin made our visit very enjoyable.

“Possibly the worst Applebee's I've been to”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

When you go to a chain restaurant, you expect to get the same experience you would anywhere else. Now with Applebee's, that means an average, decent, predictable experience. However, THIS Applebee's is anything but the usual.

The food is ALWAYS slow. When you order lunch, expect that even a salad could take 45 minutes to an hour to be brought out to you. If you are on any time schedule whatsoever, you will be late. On top of it, the food is actually a step down from what you would expect.

The only reason this place did not earn one star is because the food is at least edible and I have never gotten sick eating there. That being said, I have not gone to this restaurant in nearly a year and have no plans on ever going back. In fact, it has soured me on the entire chain.

“Applebees my second home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

Been a patron of this Applebees since it opened... Management is young and fun. Most servers are in school and working their way thru college. They always do their best to meet the customers needs. Please remember when you place a drink order, your server must enter it into the computer, then wait on the bartender to make it, so don't yell too loud if you have to wait an extra minute. Food is always good and warm. They follow strict Applebees policies to ensure each order is done right. We always sit at the bar, Quicker service and friends to talk to.

“last time we will eat here”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

This is the 3rd time in a row (over the the past 6 mos) that we have had a bad experience at this Applebees. Each time they"ve had waiting lists even though there are numerous empty tables. The restaurant is NOT clean, and the restroom smelled terrible. Service was slow. We waited over 30 minutes for our food. Quality of food sub-average. We waited 15 minutes to get our check. The restaurant was not that busy as it was 3:30 in the afternoon. We know every restaurant can have an "off" day but 3 times in a row and we are finished!
