The time has come to update and refresh the establishment--we were not particularly impressed by the place--maybe it was the time of night, but the restaurant was relatively empty--still had to wait on a table--not a particularly friendly experience, which can usually make up for sub-standard or sub-par food--family does not want to return ever....

Went here 2 times between 04.08.16 and 04.12.16 with my now fiancé and his four year old granddaughter. The third time was by myself, as he had to work that night. First night, the server seemed unsure of the menu. Food however was excellent. Second time, the hostess, who we found out was on her second day, seated two other... More

Had the worst experience on my birthday. Wouldn't seat us for 10 to 15 minutes in a 1/2 full restaurant so as not to "overwhelm the wait staff." Manager on 2/22 at about 6:15 pm was as rude and condescending as they come with a, if you don't like it, leave attitude. So we left. You'd think with food that... More

Waited for over 20 min. for a table when there were empty tables and people leaving tables that were not being used for customers even after they were cleaned.. There were 3 people working at the hostess desk. How many people are needed for the hostess desk? After waiting this long and seeing all the empty tables, we left the... More

Flew in on a late flight and needed to find an open eatery. Applebees proved to be a good choice as they bargain price appetizers after 10:00 pm. We enjoyed those and soup & sandwich - all quite good.

I guess you don't want to pick a chain place for a large group of people. They couldn't accommodate our group of 11 (and 1 infant) at one table. Splitting us up made the meeting less productive. On top of that, we waited a while for our orders to be taken and a lot longer to get our meals. My... More

We were on our way to hotel after visiting and looking for a consistent dining experience as with most Applebee's. This one was OK, but nothing beyond average. Service was sub-par, my hamburger was way overcooked, but my wife's salmon was good. Wouldn't stop here on purpose again.

Food is good, just like any other Applebee's. The service was lacking, however. We waited to be greeted and seated when it wasn't really busy. Our server was really nice, but the hostesses were not welcoming at all. Other times when we have gone here for carryout, the service was lacking as well.

On Wednesday, January, 15th around 6pm we came to eat @ one of your restaurant. While trying to enter your establishment I slipped on some ice. It was a very hard tumble. Well we got in and I was able to clean myself up, I asked my server if there were any I could get a band aid I would... More

For a chain establishment it is very good. The wait staff is courteous and the food is good. You can't go wrong.
