Great food! I got the chicken and shrimp and it was excellent. The service wasn't stellar, but it wasn't terrible, either.

Short walk across the lot from the Hampton, good salad with bacon, perfectly cooked 12 oz sirloin, bacon mac & cheese was incredible.

I came in mostly to socialize and get out of the hotel. The bartender was more interested in a "beer selling contest" than chatting. Place was just dead. Management needs to get some personality behind the bar. Food is just ok. Think I will just grab something at the grocery store.

We find this to be a nice place to get away to. Menu options are varied and good. We especially appreciate the "2 for $20" and "2 for $25" specials. Also the salad selections. We find it clean (a critical concern), pleasant, and having attentive service.

If you like large plates/bowels partially filled with small portions, Applebee's is your kind of restaurant. If you like your "grilled" vegetables cold and raw, make your reservation today. The only positive things I can mention is that our server was pleasant, and she acknowledged our poorly prepared meal by bringing a couple of free desserts.

We go to this Applebees often as it's close to home. I like the fact that the entrees are not huge and you can't beat the prices. On our last visit I ordered steak medium rare and it came well-done.Without hesitation the waiter apologized and offered to replace it and offered chips and salsa while waiting. Second try and it...

We arrived at the Hampton Inn late. We were looking for something to eat. Applebee's fit the bill. We had a light dinner and a beer. Staff was very friendly

We needed to grab a quick bite to eat but didn't want fast food. Applebees has some healthier alternatives that make it easy to get in and out in a fairly quick timeframe. Service is always good.

We were seated right away, but the bar service was terrible. The food was average, chips were stale, they apparently forgot to put any booze in our drinks. The waitress did the best she could it was the back room and bar that we all had to deal with
