Food was greasy and waitress was slow. We would not recommend. It wasn't worth what we paid but we didn't complain as we were exhausted after a long trip.

Needed somewhere to catch lunch with family before attending a wedding. Arrived at 12:30pm and was able to get a huge booth for 6 adults. Food was excellent as usual and waitress was attentive and kept us well hydrated!! Always know that we can count on Applebee's for a good meal! Thank you!!

My steak was great-tasting and lean. Service at the bar was really quick, and the barmaid didn't make fun of me for drinking only a large milk.

Our server was attentive but not a pest. She really knew what she was doing! Excellent service and friendly! The prices were good on the food. A margarita was almost $10 so I'd stick with domestic beer. The 2 for $20 deal was great for us! Tge food was excellent too!

Nothing really bad to say. It was average food for the family. We were greeted and seated. Service was friendly.
