We had their quick luncheon special of hamburger, French fries and drink for under $10. Our food arrived in nine minutes! Food and service was excellent. Several management staff stopped by to see how we were doing.

This location has some serious issues which need to be taken care of, because this location really makes the brand look bad. To begin with, when staff are on a break, they should be in a break room in the back, not sitting at a table in the restaurant itself. The wait staff need to keep their language clean, as... More

The food was not acceptable and management needs additional training. When it is time to close do your self a favor and just close don't serve OLD food. I will never eat here again. Thanks for your time.....

My visit to this Applebee's was okay. We got there during the half-off appetizer time frame and decided to order two appetizers to start our meal. The spinach cheese dip was good - the chips tasted like they needed salt and were very thin. They kept breaking off in the dip but that made eating it kind of an adventure... More

I was hoping being on vacation that this Applebee's would be better than back home. My hopes were dashed very quickly after getting my food. My steak was so overdone (I ordered it medium) that I could hardly cut it. I also said no onions or mushrooms...the steak was laying on a bed of them. Our waiter didn't even come... More

Our server, Cindy, was great. She was friendly and prompt. She was very busy and when our food came up, the other servers brought the food. They really helped each other and it did not go unnoticed. Food was good -DH had ribs, I had steak - both were good. Mac and cheese is awesome!

There were 5 women in our group and we all ordered different things. The spinach/shrimp salad, French onion soup, and chicken quesedillas were great!

My family arrived during lunchtime. It's about the 3 red time we have been here in about a year, and the last 2 experiences were not good, but decided to give it another try, before writing a bad review. The carpet was filthy and you can smell it when you walk in. (I think carpet should be against health regulations... More

I ordered my steak well well done and it was medium rare. The wings barely had sauce on them. Overall it was ok.
