We ate here last night. Nice server but terrible service--one meal came after we were done eating. The beer took forever to come because the person preparing drinks chose to visit with others rather make the drinks. Finally said forget the drinks. Won't be back...More

Cleanliness was OK. Restrooms were OK. Food was OK. Nothing too remarkable about the place. Nothing really terribly wrong with the place but nothing that would draw me back to either.

Visited for dinner with friends. Wife's hamburger was greasy and not very hot. My sirloin steak was tough and hard to cut. Ok meal with good service, but not the best food in town.

Thought we'd give Applebee's another try. The food was terrible. Their quality has gone way down over the years. The beer was cold & we had a nice waitress.

It is pretty much what one should expect of an Applebees. Good, but not great food. Decent and friendly service. No complaints but then nothing that makes it extraordinary.

I always enjoy myself at Applebee's! They have happy hour specials every day from I believe 3-5, and 9-close (don't quote me on that) I love the bar top tables, boneless wings, awesome appetizers, a huge drink menu with only the good stuff, and the...More
