Entrees sometimes come still frozen...It is OK if you are traveling and really need a bite to eat, but only OK. You can do better

I have been to this Applebee's multiple times and also ordered take-out a number of times. The staff have always been helpful and if there has ever been a mistake or an item not quite right, they are quick to correct it. On one take-out order I found one item missing when I got home and one not up to... More

Delightful staff and a well kept establishment. I found the interior attractive and the eating areas clean. My order was served as ordered and the service attentive and polite. A good choice when in the area and looking for something a step up from fast food.

We love the wait staff there and the TV's everywhere. The food was good and the left overs even better.

I'm not a big fan of Applebees, especially when it comes to the quality of their food. This night stood out--in a good way, though (mostly). They were obviously understaffed. Both the bartender and the waiter (who also played host) apologized for this. Jill wanted to sit at the bar, but all the bar tables and the bar itself needed... More

I've been to this Applebee's a few times, and they are Terrible. Service is slow, food is poor. I'm not a complainer, but I've complained to the manager here before, have walked out once when we couldn't get service. I don't normally go here because it's so bad, but a group of friends was meeting there, so I went, hoping... More

we went there for the first time last week and were disappointed in the food. We did only have burgers and a beer which I think should have been easy but I guess not. Jury is still out on whether we will be going back again. $40.00 for 2 burgers and 2 beers.

I'm not a huge fan of Applebee's food. The place is nice and is a good place for friends to meet and relax. Great stop over for a group of riders.

Well it took about 15 minutes for someone to realize we were even there... after that water took about 10 more and lunch (just sandwiches nothing fancy) 25 more minutes.. not good. They weren't busy at all... apparently our waitress was also bar tending and holding a baby (not at the same time) while we were waiting.

Thank Joanna M
