“Remodeled and Cleaner, Service was good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

They recently remodeled this Applebees. It is cleaner but still seems crowded to walk around in. Servers have trouble getting around tables and people. Service was good, over all food was good. We were there at happy hour and ordered a beer. It was $4.50 on happy hour prices. Seems like alot for one beer.

“Good Food but Neglected”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Out of curiosity, I read the negative Tripadvisor comments prior to our latest visit. I could not believe that the reviewers were talking about the same restaurant because we had only great experiences here. We went for supper one early evening. We were greeted warmly by a hostess who held the door open for us. Another hostess promptly sat us and offered to lower the window shade. Fantastic customer service, but it did not last. We noticed a food server discussing his family with a nearby table of customers. He then moved to another table and did the same. When he came to our table he took our drink orders and quickly left. No smile, no introduction, very little eye contact. He returned and asked if we were ready. We told him that we were but as we started, he abruptly left. Several minutes passed before he returned. He took our orders and brought our meals in a timely fashion. He then went back to talk to the other tables. The only other time he came to our table was to present the check. As for the food, it was just as tasty and juicy as advertised. In previous visits to this restaurant, I appreciated how the manager would come to each table to say hello and check to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction. There was no manager on this night. After all is said and done, I now understand about the previous reviewers and their negative comments.

We went to Applebees on a Sunday afternoon, without calling ahead, to celebrate my mother's birthday. There were 7 of us. We walked in at 3 PM and they were able to seat us immediately. Our server was Sarah and the drink server was Patty.
We received 5 star service from all aspects.
Sarah was very attentive and friendly, as was Patty. We ordered 2 appetizers to start as well as drinks from the bar. It came very quickly and each item was as ordered.
Sarah took our dinner orders and when the food arrived, it was hot, all orders were correct and served quickly.
The steak was absolutely delicious and cooked just as we had asked. The veges were crisp yet cooked and everything had wonderful flavor.
I can't wait to go back again!

The host who took us to our table was giving us TMI about what he had for breakfast which was no from Appkebees. The server to our order for drinks which was 5 waters and 1 margarita then he took our order 2 orders of cheese sticks and 2 children's burgers and 3 other meals with chicken all grilled in 2 different types of salad and a Italian dish. They brought out 2 orders of bread sticks instead of cheese sticks and all 3 meals had burnt chicken. The manager compt us with $3 dollars of each of the chicken meals. Won't be back.
