The 2-for-$20/$25 menu is great for couples and families. This location consistently serves great food and provides friendly service.

Go every year for the free Veterans lunch. This year I had the chopped steak. Very good. Of course I always bring a family member last year it was my mother in law. Anyways always a great feeling being surrounded by fellow Hero's. Thank you Applebee's.

We just went to Applebee's a couple of nights ago hoping once again against hope it would be worth it. I can't quite put my finger on it but part of it is the food is not very tasty and the venue tries to be too many things to too many people.

I have been to Applebee's several times in person and had hit or miss service. My family and I have found the Carside To Go very easy and convenient. When you order online you have the option to pick it up in person or have them bring it to you. We have opted to have them bring it to us.... More

We've been here several times. The food is good and the salads are great! They have a great "lite" menu if you are watching your weight, it gives you the WW points if you need to know that. It shows the nutritional values of all the food on the lite menu, so you know what you are getting if you... More

Now of course we all know Applebee's is not fine dining, but it's generally a good place to stop for a burger or maybe some nachos. Location of this one is excellent- near highway and movie theater. But overall This was a no bueno experience-totally ignored by hostess chatting with others for many minutes then seated w a very lukewarm... More

This location was quiet for a Sunday lunch, which is good for us so that we are not shouting each other over loud music or televisions featuring sports turned up high. We made a lunch from choosing three of their appetizers (build your sampler) and splitting a salad. For the appetizers, there were three Grilled Chicken Wonton tacos, a smaller... More

Been to all the local Applebee's. This is the only location I find that NEVER has a wait/line. This is a good thing especially if you're in a hurry to catch a movie or starving!

My two youngest grandchildren and I have eaten at this Applebees both before and after a movie. Good food and spotty service. Give it a try.
