Went there on there on April 2 nd for a quick dinner. Was seated promptly and then the disappointment set in. Waited 20 minutes for a server to acknowledge us and that was even after turning on the call server devise. There was a shift supervisor that started to come over but he turned his head and was pretending to... More

Went there on Vet's day, Nov 11 2016. There were tons of people there and many waiting to get in. We had our 95 year old Aunt with us, instead of having to wait 30 minutes due to the crowd, they seated us in roughly 5 minutes. Kudos to the staff. I had one of their free dishes ( for... More

I stopped here for lunch while passing through the area. BIG mistake. This was one of the worst lunches and service experiences. I ordered French onion soup and half a club sandwich. The soup was greasy and the sandwich was dry and poorly made. The service was marginal as it was clear that regulars get the attention. Why anyone would... More

Michelle, our waitress, was very slow and late to our table. Our drinks took at least 15 minutes, apps were room temp. She showed little to no service skills. However, our food was cooked perfectly, big thanks to the cooks!

The quality of the food was very good; the waitress was impeccable, and the two for twenty-five deal was awesome! We had the mozzarella sticks with marinara suace/-super yummy. My friend had the steak tips with rice, which she said were very good! I had the double crunch shrimp which was ridiculous in portion! --Who eats 16 shrimp!! But very... More

First visit following the establishment of the new Applebee's wood smoked entrees. The salmon I had was delicious! This change is definitely a step in the right direction, in my opinion. The food was well done and the service was great.

I always enjoy the food and drink, atmosphere, and customer service at Applebee's. Either at the bar or at a table, solo or in a large group, we have always gathered here. I always leave happy, but my body feels it later. It might be what I eat, or it could be everything I eat has a coating of oil... More

I had a great sandwich. The girls were thrilled to see "Kraft" macaroni and cheese on the menu. My husband had quesadilla's and said they were good. Comfortable seating and close to Holiday Inn express.

I had the house 9oz steak with veggies and a house salad. The food was consistent with Applebee's but the service left out a lot. Took her 8 to 10 mins just to greet me. I place my order and waited. My steak and salad came out together. Waited for drink refills only see her stuffing her face by the... More

Went on a Friday night, and was pretty busy. Had the shrimp appetizer and it was very good. Liked ordering round of drinks on the little screen at the table. Food arrived hot.Food was tasty and not pricey.
