The two of us were out geocaching and getting our nails done. Decided to stop in at this Applebee's since I had never been there before. The staff was very attentive. I needed some special help ordering, and they were nice. Food was typical Applebee's, but refills on drinks came un-asked for, so that was very nice. Will return.

My wife has been bugging me to go to an Applebee's for some time now so we decided to try it out for lunch. It was terrific. Pleasant atmosphere, helpful staff (although our waitress was a bit too perky for us), fast refills and...oh, the food....yes, it was tasty. Fries were great, Large sandwiches and prices were medium. Nice stop.

I met a business associate for lunch - decided on the regular size Thai shrimp salad ... Very good. Fast and efficient service.

I needed to grab a takeout from this Applebee's one evening after a very long day. My husband had been in the hospital for tests and I did not want to leave him alone in the hotel long. No need to have worried . The take out was fast and good. They remembered to fill my special requests and I... More

Been here several times. Usually pretty good, but this time was a major disappointment! Waiter was training a new staff member, and we, as customers, came in a distant 2nd place! Ordered coffee, and enjoyed the first cup. However, when the time came for a refill, instead of the waiter paying attention, noticing and bringing it, he had to be... More

We have been here a few times in the last couple months and the service and food somehow seems to get better. We used to skip applebee's in our rotation of "normal" restaurants, but this time it was good service and good food. They weren't super busy and I was grateful it was a Tuesday night so my daughter's food... More

They have some really good food if you look over the menu. Great hostess and wait staff. This used to be somewhere I would avoid, but not any more. Burger Mondays are the best. Nicely cooked, good beef flavor and I love the BBQ fries.

Went here for lunch and won't be back anytime soon. $10 for 1/2 sandwich and a few bites of salad (no fries) and a water. Poor value.

This was a disappointment on so many levels. We arrived here at 5:20 on a Sunday afternoon. It was not crowded however the hostess was taken back when we said we needed seating for 6. There were plenty of empty tables. We specifically arrived early for the happy hour menu. They did not have one for us to look at... More
