I have traveled the country checking out every Applebee's I run into. Kind of a hobby because my company pays my expenses and I cal always depend on good eats at any Applebee's. So it is more about the service and people that eat there. This place I have given a few chances and been let down each time. Service... More

Place has severely gone down hill since last visit. Dirty electronic equipment on all the tables, service was s-l-o-w, food lacked flavor.

I've never been a fan of this restaurant. And unfortunately this visit didn't change my mind. Had lunch with a friend after church and I was less than impressed. Our server was nice but rolled eyes at requests that were made. The food lacked flavor and Applebee's never really seem to be clean. There are always dirty tables. Can't recommend... More

Stopped in to this Applebee's because it's walking distance from Best Buy and I was waiting for service installation. Told the hostess that I was going to be there a couple of hours and she was nice enough to seat me where there was a plug for my cell phone and told me about the WiFi. The place appears in... More

Seated quickly but young lady didn't seem to be comfortable in that position. Aaron came quickly and took our order. I asked for two different sauces for the ribs. When Aaron brought the ribs, the two sauces were in small crocks, not on the ribs. This was unusual but I found it was a great way to put the sauce... More

Been to many applebees but this one seemed under staffed and under trained. Excuses were unprofessional. We heard all three staff including the person in charge say things about each other like they are new, they don't know what they are talking about etc. It took two hours of our night luckily we were not in a rush. Food was... More

This restaurant deserves a great review probably thanks to a great waiter (Adam). Never had to ask for a refill on drinks but he was not over bearing. Food was plentiful took 1/2 home for lunch go next day. Price was reasonable. Service was quick, just a really nice experience.

Took several minutes to get seated because the male hostess was wondering around. Kitchen times average. Server was nice. I had the sampler platter and it wasn't that great. Dip was a very small portion. Quesadilla was dry and not much more than an empty shell. And it was soo salty tasting. Chicken was good. Marinara sauce doesn't taste that... More

I had sworn off this chain after a terrible experience in Chicagoland. A business lunch got me back in the door in Kentucky. I was immediately seated and graciously greeted and asked what I'd like to drink as we sat down. There were 6 in our party we were all taken care of very well for a business lunch. The... More

We usually really enjoy Applebee's. This is the worst one I've ever been to. It was moderately busy for a Saturday night, very slow to bring our drinks (there were only 2 of us). Very slow to clear the table as we finished with dishes. The whole place just seemed to be in chaos. Servers were all rushed and annoyed... More
