Is generally ok.Food is decently cooked.Can get very busy and loud at peak times. Generally enjoy a meal here,but is fairly standard family dining experience.Try to avoid peak times,as waiting times are long,and is not always so enjoyable when very busy.

I had a business meeting there and it went well. I only needed water but the manager Michelle saw my meeting and made sure to keep checking. I have to say she was really happy and I can see how Applebee's is looking to expand. Nice place, I will be back.

I can see why this restaurant is in trouble. The service was worse than bad and the food was okay. I put in a dessert order using their automatic system and it went to a black hole. It is a social time for the staff. I won't be back.

The menu has changed since my last visit with some improvement, but still a formulaic restaurant. My chicken with maple bacon needed a little more flavoring.

Menu has changed completely, for the better. Small appetizers offered free, as examples of their new food. Good, tasty, inexpensive food. Burger was one of the best I've had; meat was tender and size was great. Chicken in the chicken caesar salad was perfectly grilled, served hot, and nicely seasoned. A far cry from the tired, standard fare I associated... More

Eat lunch here every week. Our server for over 10 years recently left for out of state but other servers doing great job too. Recommend the lime chicken. Never used the bar so no comment.

Came here awhile back and the service was sub par. This time the service improved. I much prefer to be seated at the high tables vs the booths. This place is ideal for sports enthusiasts – bar with multiple flat screen TVs. We placed our order of: Boneless Wings, Bourbon Street Chicken & Shrimp and Chicken Tenders Basket. Our food... More

There was three of us tonight. The dining room was not packed. A nice wait person greeted us right away and pleasantly took out order. Then we were served 2 or the 3 meals. Then it took 15min to get the last meal. The food was pretty good, but it was a little disjointed getting the last meal so late.
