We stop here from time to time to eat because the two for 20/25 meals are a pretty good value and we like the spinach artichoke appetizer. Today did not disappoint us except that the chips that came with the appetizer were a little greasy. The meal was good but not great but all in all OK.

Someone held the door for us as we came in and that was nice. Then the host kept wiping her nose and touching our menus and silverware. Our table was dirty and the finish is coming off and bare in spots. They barely clean the tables between guests; just knocked the food off with a rag. It should have been sanitized. Wiped table down with a Clorox wipe and it was black from grime.

Waitress was nice, but it took 15 minutes for her to take our drink order. I saw a lot of waitstaff texting. Our house salads were plain lettuce, bacon, and cheese with very little dressing and were really small. Not the salads I remember them having before! My chicken was good, but it wasn't what I ordered. I was really hungry so I ate it anyway. The steamed vegetables were still very hard and seemed more raw. The three cheese chicken penne had a very little amount of chicken in it and definitely not a full serving for an adult. There were three small strips and that was it. No bread served with it.

Waitress never checked on us during our meal, but did bring by refills once. Maybe they were short staffed.

Overall, we would not go here again and feel like we wasted our dining experience and money. The atmosphere was poor and the food isn't the same as it used to be. Applebee's used be a decent place to eat, but we would rather have a two hour wait then go back to this place again until they upgrade their tables, staff, and food. You can get a lot better service and atmosphere (cleaner too!) cheaper elsewhere.

Had the 2 for $20 meal deal today. Included an appetizer and 2 entrees. Had the spinach artichoke dip and new honey shrimp/chicken dish and parmesan chicken. Meals were good and well presented. Service was fast and friendly. Would definitely visit this restaurant again.

Great local beers. Wait staff was cordial and prompt. Excellent service, as usual. We always are happy at Applebees, wherever we find ourselves.

Applebee's has decent food, but is nothing to write home about. There are much better places to eat here, including the Chik Fil A. I have never had any issues with service or the cleanliness of this Applebee's, but it is nothing special.
