Their dollar drinks aren’t anything to rave about but their Happy Hour apps are all very good and very inexpensive. The nachos are enough to share or take some home and very very tasty. The staff are very friendly and attentive.

It has been quite a while since we had visited Applebee's due to lousy service and food. That has changed. When you visit there ask for Tim as your server. He and the food is the reason. If things aren't what was ordered, he won't...More
