Applebee's is probably the best eatery in my area. With a theater in the same parking lot, it makes for a great evening or even matinee date or outing with the family or just a night out with thr wife.

This was a "quick stop" during a trip... service was excellent, food was good, although portion sizes were (we thought) small for the price. Very diverse menu, lots of choices.

You can't go wrong at this Applebees. The service is super fast and the food is very good. We arrived at 6PM on a Saturday night and we figured there would be a waiting line, however we were seated right away. This restaurant built a new addition last year and the management was putting the extra seating to good use... More

Food and staff is SUPER! The only comment I have is the waiting area. Very small and crowded, especially at 9 and after for half apps. I have never gone in and been seated right away. But continue to go here for the food/ pricing/ and atmosphere. Also regarding half apps, usually you have to have a soda or beverage... More

Had a party of 7 around 8pm. No problem. Applebee's handled it well, the food was very good - from the appetizers to the steak one of us had. Drinks were good, too. Service was outstanding. Liked it a lot - menu is wide ranging.

I used to love Applebee's until I found out I had allergies to dairy and soy on top of my known shrimp allergy. Went there for a business meeting; I knew I had to leave earlier than others to attend another event. The waiter tried to help (good service) by asking the cook staff if they could accommodate my allergies.... More

The only employee that smiled at us and in our section was the hostess, everyone else looked and seem very unhappy. The food was ok, the service left a lot to be desired.

We were looking for something simple and fast close to our hotel. We knew going in Applebees is not gourmet dining. Service was great, food came fast and tasted great. Portion size was excellent. For what we got and what we paid, it was great value. This was a great meal, I would have to say it definitely exceeded my... More
