We got seated right away but the waitress seemed liked she didn't care we were there. My boyfriend and I both had a steak salad. Normally it's amazing. Today it was supper spicy so it wasn't enjoyable. When we got the bill thank God we actually looked at it. We got some one else's which was twice as much as... More

Applebee's has a diverse menu that includes several strong choices for those of us who are always counting calories. The food is tasty, the service friendly and efficient and the fun margaritas in various flavors really perk me up on Friday after a long, hard week.

Paula the server is absolutely great and the food is just alright. We feel the food quality has gone down as have the portions. We have been going to this restaurant for a number of years and have watched the condition of the restaurant as far as cleanliness, appearance of most of the servers and wait time before getting a...

Steak and shrimp was good but prefer the why it was previously made. Service was good. Like the ability to pay from the table and not have to wait for server .

We went on a Tuesday night around 6:30am and got seated right away. Doesn't always happen on the weekend nighrs. The lady greeting at the door and waitress kassondra were very nice and attentive. The reason I gave a 4 instead of a five is because every time I order a steak it is never cooked correctly. It is always... More

My wife, son and I waited 1 hour 25 minutes, after we ordered, to get our food. The restaurant was somewhat busy with about 2/3 of the tables full. I've been to many other Applebee's, several times, that were much busier and have never waited anywhere near that long. Our waitress was was nice, she was also disappointed that we... More
