Ate here for lunch while in town on business. Had actually lost my liking for Applebee's over the past two years but these folks really did well from seating, through serving, and then departing. Our waitress was exceptional, the food came out prepared well, and tasteful. We all ate fairly light with the Oriental chicken salad, burgers, and wraps but... More

Absolutely stuffed! I ate waaaay to much here. The food was great. The waitress was extremely friendly. Menu was nice with lots of choice. Nice atmosphere. Great for a family meal.

We hadn't been to an Applebees for some time, and decided to try it again. They have remodeled again, and now have gone for a decidedly Western theme. Western music (often Grand Ole Opry style), lots of Texas grill items. Prices have gone up, and there are fewer sandwich options. Service was AWFUL, and they were not busy. It looks... More

I'm am glad that I had a gift card, because I would have been very upset if I had to pay for this visit. To start with the really good stuff, Jillysa was one of the best servers we have had in a long time. She never wrote a single thing dowm and had the orders perfect. The salad was... More

Had poor experience in past tried again. After 9pm had to walk past a table plied high with dirty dishes. Servers busy talking to each other, not interested in the dishes. Hostess came picked up ketchup from tables, but still poor dirty dishes ignored! . Our food fair drinks pricey. Probably not on my try again list.

I love Applebee's - their food is always good and it was last night, also. However, after our experience last night, I will think twice about eating there. We were a group of 6 ladies and they told us that they could only seat a group of 6 at a high top table because all the regular tables were closed... More

My brother and his wife met with my husband and I for a early dinner before going to a BB game. First off, the person that took us to our table really didn't seem to care to much about anything. Soon our waiter came over and made everything right. He brought our drinks right away and was very personable. He... More

My friend and I went to Applebee's for their annual Veteran Appreciation free meal. Our server was pleasant, helpful and efficient. The General Manager circulated through the dining room chatting with patrons and passing out gift cards for future use. My friend had the fried shrimp, which was lightly battered, plentiful and perfectly cooked. I had the All American Burger,... More
