We picked up a to go order. After waiting at the bar 15 to 20 mins past when they said it'd be ready we finally got our food and were on our way home. We got home and things were wrong in the order and some just forgotten. I called the manager who as always offered to send out gift... More

This restaurant was pretty typical of Applebee's, which we generally enjoy. What made it stand out was our very friendly and personable server. We were there pretty late -around 10PM - and the place was nearly empty, so our server has some time to talk. He made the evening a little more relaxing after a day of driving 550 miles.... More

Visited here for late lunch recently with spouse and parents. We were seated right away. I do not really like the booth locations. It is very close seating in relation to the dining table which is quite high. It's probably ok if you don't mind feeling like an infant in a high chair. The waitress had several opportunities back and... More

It's sometimes hit or miss with Applebee's, but this one was a hit. Friendly hosts and Brandon was a great server. The place was clean and neat, and food came out in a decent time.

We visited Applebee's twice during our stay. The burgers are to die for!! Most of all, I have to commend the staff, upon leaving, my son went to the car for some change, I paid the bill and left the table, not realizing his watch and I Pad were on the seat on his side of the table. Thank goodness... More

I loved my first experience of Applebee's, the thing that made it for me was the waiting staff who were so very friendly and helpful. The food was good, the drinks went down easily and the price was reasonable.

Stopped in after working late the other night and got a great meal. Fast service friendly staff. Applebee's has a varied menu priced right. Being a creature of habit, I ordered the Oriental chicken salad. Yummy!

I like the variety they offer in both their drinks and their food. Their food is expensive if you want to get both an appetizer and entrée so we try to do one or the other. They will do special orders without looking at your funny or frowning on you. I like their wraps and their burgers are juicy. They... More

I took my- great grandsons, ages 5 and 10 for supper 08 August, 2014. The youngest new he wanted "mozzarella sticks." So, not only did we have the appetizer tray for all 3 of us, also on his meal with chicken tenders. Oldest had a bacon burger that I swear, was as big as he. LOVED my chicken penne pasta.... More

My experience with Applebees is very rarely bad; this was an exception. My salad was not well made (the chicken was cold, the lettuce tasted off) and my soup tasted TERRIBLE. The service took awhile and I was very unhappy with my experience. I normally enjoy Applebees, but this was not a good restaurant.

Thank Emily S
