I was hoping being on vacation that this Applebee's would be better than back home. My hopes were dashed very quickly after getting my food. My steak was so overdone (I ordered it medium) that I could hardly cut it. I also said no onions or mushrooms...the steak was laying on a bed of them. Our waiter didn't even come... More

Our server, Cindy, was great. She was friendly and prompt. She was very busy and when our food came up, the other servers brought the food. They really helped each other and it did not go unnoticed. Food was good -DH had ribs, I had steak - both were good. Mac and cheese is awesome!

There were 5 women in our group and we all ordered different things. The spinach/shrimp salad, French onion soup, and chicken quesedillas were great!

The carpet was filthy and you can smell it when you walk in. (I think carpet should be against health regulations... More

I ordered my steak well well done and it was medium rare. The wings barely had sauce on them. Overall it was ok.

We visited this restaurant four different times over a period of two weeks, getting takeout for our nearby hotel room. Each time, the service was excellent, food was properly prepared and very good. Over the visits we tried 2-3 salads, meat entrees, fish and chips (twice!) - and all were very satisfying. Great job, guys!

We enjoyed a nice lunch, although our server Kierra could have done more to find a commonality and build a rapport with us she was very friendly and hospitable. The burger was very good and the French fries seasoned and served at proper temperature. Kudo's to Applebee's for their excellent support of veterans. For 2.00 you can enjoy an excellent... More

Customer service was great, food was hot, and very good. Wait time was not long. Server told you all the great food that was on the menu. She smiled the whole time she waited on you.
