“A Great Experience”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

My husband took me to this restaurant to have a nice lunch on our Anniversary. The food was very good & the service was exceptional. The restaurant was busy & we told our server that we were not ready to order & were not in a hurry (meaning he could take his time getting back to us). After a while the manager came by to check on us to make sure we were not waiting too long. We were fine, but appreciated the gesture.

Our server, forgot his name but it started with a “D” was great! He made recommendations, was very attentive, professional; just a great server & nice guy. In addition, after my husband said it was our anniversary several other staff members came by to give us their congratulations.

As for the food, it is very good and a great value. We did have a desert (it was like an apple turnover with ice cream and caramel) recommended by our server that was without a doubt the best desert I have ever had. It is so good you do not care about calories and do not want to share it; even with your husband on your Anniversary.

“nice visit”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Service was prompt and friendly, food good as usual. The new 2 for $24 menu is nice with the addition of the bourbon steak (yummy) and the portabella chicken was also good. Nice value for the money.

“No Service”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Just left Applebees where, after being seated, not a single person acknowledged we were there. Managers and servers took care of those who sat in front of us and behind us but never once stopped at our table. We sat there for 20 minutes before we got up and left. I'm afraid Applebees is headed the way of TGIF -- closed down.

“Nice people, good food and good times”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Always a place where you feel comfortable with the prices, service and the surroundings.
A wide variety of food and drinks, plenty of TV s and some music.
