I came up with family today to get a good meal and was very shocked and I'm pleased that they would not accommodate me with me being having a shellfish allergy so I sucked it up a little bit and went ahead and got a pork chop the pork chop was so dry that I thought I was going to... More

If you are searching for atypical franchise fare that remains the same no matter what city you are in, then you are in luck. This Applebees is exactly like every Applebees I've ever eaten in. Decent food at decent prices with above average service.

Loved this place back in the day but its showing its age. Food seems to have gone down. Service can be great at times and really poor at times....depends when you hit it.

We arrived in town after a long drive and were famished, looking for lunch with our college daughter, her roommate and our son. It was a rainy Saturday so all of the Wards Rd chain restaurants were full with long wait times. So we came over to Applebees - which is a little out of the central shopping area but... More

Arrived in peak Saturday night dinner time, yet got seated immediately. Service was quick, friendly, and efficient. Food was good as always.

After a long day of traveling, found a place to stay, and wouldn't you know it, there were the regular chain restaurants spaced around the local mall. That was just what we were looking for. The food was good, hot, plentiful and timely. You know what to expect in an Applebee's and this was one of the better.

The service was good. The food was a little pricey for the quality that we received. The food was ok but nothing exceptional.

I said I would never eat at Applebees again after my previous experience but we were traveling and having trouble finding anything other than fast food. I am happy we did because I found out not all Applebees are made the same that is for sure. The service was very good as was the food.

This is your standard Applebee's, but I wasn't thrilled with the food preparation or with the service. We were with a group, but not a large one.
