Don't get me wrong. I love loud music. However, not when I'm at lunch trying to carry on a conversation. The temperature was beyond cold. Our table of six and the tables on each side of asked us requested the warm the place up. The response was incredble . . . "that's controlled by Corporate." Speaking of corporate, amuse yourself...

UNFORTUNATELY THE ONLY THING OPEN BESIDES MCDONALD'S. The only good thing was Katie taking the to go order over the phone. Friendly and courteous. I got there to pick it up, and no one was at the front, so I waited at the bar as the bartender was a little bit busy. But, I wasn't greeted until about 10 minutes... More

Applebee's is a truly good local restaurant located near our home. The menu has a wonderful selection of food and the service is excellent. Our server Jerry was awesome and it will be a pleasure to return to this wonderful eating place.

A good restaurant to eat in but a little hard to access. No drive access off SR70. Use a road behind the establishment. Courteous employees and good food.

Late afternoon Sunday and the restaurant was quite quiet, clean and tidy and staff were great. The advertised $9.99 sirloin meal was great and cooked to perfection. Great menu and great deals. Well worth a visit.

conveniently located with ample parking we enjoyed the meal of a large range of appetisers and steak to follow. If we return we would sit at the bar and enjoy half price appetisers in the happy hours. Service seemed quicker there and the food was the same just cheaper. The doughnut chocolate and marshmallow dip dessert was a favourite with... More

Alex is a wonderful bartender who doubles as a server, that is the end of the good part. This Applebees has a very flavorful hamburger, but unfortunately they need someone to prepare it. I ordered the classic, asked for it to be as pink as they could make it since I like it rare. Ordered it with pickles and onions.... More
