We always know we will get a good meal and good service at Applebee's and this was no exception. Salads were fresh and crisp and our meals were prepared perfectly.

I have always liked applebees, i don't expect any particular level of service when I go. I just want my triple chocolate meltdown and a decent meal. No complaints here

We went here with the thought that we've be in and out in an hour on a Tuesday. That definitely didn't happen. It took so long to get our food at noon on a Tuesday. The food was good though.

This was within walking distance of our hotel. We walked over for drinks. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was really good.

We always sit at the bar. this night the bar was NOT busy, but the bartender must have thought it was. Confused, distant, and not on top of anything.

One of the best chain restaurants for families. Has a great sport bar. Offers many specials like 2 for twenty dollar menu which includes appetizers and great happy hour offers.

We like the Applebee's chain. We enjoy the chicken wontons and I like their signature Oriental salad. The place was not packed, wasn't busy really and it took 30 minutes to get our appetizers. The waitress kept coming back to say it would be out soon...why so long? It took a full hour to have appetizers and entree's which were... More
