First off - I had stopped going to Applebee's for maybe 10 years, but this was only choice on a late Tuesday night. Somethings must have changed or this is the best Applebees in the chain. Our server, John, was very good. He helped through the confusing menu, alerted us to specials, and made good suggestions. It wasn't busy and... More

We had not been to this establishment in 6 months. Change in menu And advertisement made us stop. Not good appetizer had a hair on it, was replaced. Food came out and my burger did not have the condiments that the menu said it came with. Burger looked good but raw in the center. Wife's chicken strip tasteless. Brought a... More

Been here a few times and wanted to try the wood fired fare. I was actually impressed with the flavor despite only having sirloin options. This place could be five star with different steak type options and a better micro beer selection. Word is they are looking to expand their beer selection and I am looking forward to that. Good...

Tried this Applebee's location for lunch during a recent visit to South Bend, Indiana. I had kind of quit going to Applebee's in recent years because I felt like their menu and food was lacking. I think they are making great strides to turn that around. Their new menu items are a pleasant sight! I have eaten at Applebees twice... More

Nice casual restaurant. Good service. Friendly staff. Has never been overly busy when we have lunched there or most recently, an evening meal. Food was good and served in a timely manner.

We live near here and taking note of previous reviews would say its depends on the day you go and who is working as to your experience. It is nearly always ok and some days very good. They have large portions and my wife enjoys their frequent new menu items and variety. They are open 11 AM - 11 except... More

Decent service and tasty quick food. Very comfortable!!! I'm not usually a fan of Applebee's but this particular one, really did a great job on the food and the service the night I and six of my friends and family were there late night.

Food always room temperature as if it had been sitting for a while. Drinks are good but that's about it!

Our food was delicious, and the service was quick and REALLY FRIENDLY! I loved the atmosphere. Overall, a really good experience. In fact, we wanted to go back again but had no time during our 5-day trip.

My family chose this restaurant due to location. The hostess was friendly, the waitress was adequate. The food was average for Applebee's. It was not something to write home about. I ordered a blackened steak. It had very little flavor and it was okay. The best thing about it was the location for our families.

Thank SueD215
