We love this location mainly for the fact that the staff is beyond friendly! They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and satisfied. We had a favourite appitizer that they recently took off the menu asked about it and they offered to make it for us regardless which was great. The burger I had was the only... More

Applebee's is a very fine place to go for lunch or dinner as the meals are tasty and plentiful. The staff is courteous and there to help. The prices are within reason depending when you plan on going as lunch is a little less then dinner. Every Remembrance Day they give a free meal to those who served and who... More

I took my baby momma there today for lunch and was pretty disappointed. The booths are very uncomfortable and we ended up changing to a table. The pop we ordered was flat yet fizzy. Strange. Anyway, I ordered the club and she ordered the chicken fajita roll up. The chicken on my sandwich was so incredibly dry that I had... More

We've enjoyed Applebee's in several locations, and are never disappointed. Their menu seems to get better all the time, and the service and quality are keeping up. Last night we started with calamari and onion petals.. perfect! For the entrees, we tried the crispy brewhouse chicken, chicken finger platter and two had the honey pepper chicken and shrimp (ya, I... More

I enjoyed 3 meals here with my coworker. Service was excellent. The salmon was very good. The honey pepper chicken and shrimp was way too sweet for my taste, but to each his own. Steaks were well-prepared to order. A good place.

I ate there 3 times and everything was consistent. I had 2 different servers. They were both super friendly. They returned to see if my food was okay. Even a guy that looked like a manager stopped once to see if everything was okay. The food was hot and my steak was cooked the way I like it.Tuesdays are $4.00... More

I use to come to Applebee's often, my favourite item has always been the riblets. I came here again tonight and did find some interesting things on the menu that I liked. The riblets were a given but I found a new item called the butcher’s meat & potato which included sirloin, tomato, mushroom, Guinness, gravy, garlic mashed potato, crispy... More

My husband and I stopped for dinner on Sunday evening and we were absolutely delighted with everything about this restaurant. We were greeted and seated immediately. Our waitress (Heather) was attentive and provided wonderful service. The food is the best we've had in this area. This is definitely our new go-to place. Very impressed!!

Firstly, our hostess was great. Very pleasant, thorough and helpful. Our waitress was also very nice. Speed of service was "ok". We were there over lunch time and I was a little surprised that it wasn't faster considering it was not that crowded. Our food was good but I was disappointed in the price for the quantity I received. Hard... More
