My friend, myself, and our 6 year old daughters grabbed lunch here one Saturday after cheerleading camp so we were tired and hungry! Our server was great! She was very friendly, quick to get our orders, fun to talk to. I ordered the fried shrimp basket and fries and it was really good, and my daughter ordered her usual macaroni... More

My wife and I have dined here on several occasions, the service has been very good. The food selection is a great variety and the meal prices are reasonable. I would recommend this place to all of my friends.

We went for the evening meal. We ordered their flavored lemonade, which was really good. We ordered from the 2 for one menu. It gave us the choice we needed for the evening. The service was good and we were well taken care of.

We had been frequent patrons of Applebee's and just moved away from going there. It had been about nine months. We like to go early because normally the restaurant fills up by 5:30. We were promptly seated and received our beverages along with menus and appreciated the changes that were made in the menu since our visit last year. The... More

Love Love Love their 2 for 20 special. And although I would like to try other dishes I always have their Oriental salad. Best in town! They have wonderful tall tables for long legs, the help is very friendly and if you are into sports, there is always a game of some sort on their many big screen televisions.

We had excellent service from our server Ashley and the food was delicious. You always know what to expect from Applebees, but my steak was cooked perfectly. The staff was friendly and the service was quick. It's a nice comfortable place to enjoy a meal with friends.

Yes its a chain, but its a good one. Everything we have tried over the years has always been full of flavor. This place is clean and the wait time has never been an issue. Indoor seating is good and and the outdoor is even better with the view. Service is quick and staff is knowledgeable about menu. Good variety... More

Busy as heck but our wait was not too long and the service and food were very good. It's a bit loud for my taste but my husband says the nachos are worth it!

Applebees has always been very consistent. Our meal was good. Our server did not spend any time. WE received the wrong salads and he just dropped them oof and walked away so quickly. it was kind of weird. We would start to say something and he was gone. But the food was good.
