Food is great, service impeccable and the best manager. Manager cares about the customers. He wants the food served to be perfect, tasty and excellent service. Most enjoyable.

We eat at Applebee's quite often. We like the 2 for 20/25 with free appetizer. Had chicken with shrimp onions mushrooms and fried potatoes. Very good. They were having Relay for Life fundraiser.
