We tend to shy away from this Applebee's because we have always gotten really slow service. When out of town friends said let's do dinner @ Applebee's we agreed. Our service was excellent! All the meals arrived together and in good time. We all were very satisfied with our meals, tasted great and the serving size was good. If you... More

Unbelievably slow! Expect to spend forever even to get your soup or salad. Local fare in this town much quicker!

Food was tasty. Service was pleasant and helpful when I was searching for specific dietary needs. Most amazing was having a waitress who can remember orders from different tables without writing anything down. Plus she stopped to see how we were doing not just a "drive by" which was very appreciated. Have it a 4 rating because of the music........ More

The food is the regular menu of an Applebee's. Wait staff friendly and attentive. Does take quite awhile to get order even when not busy.

The server was friendly. We were sat quickly but I do have some advice, when sitting larger people, they likely need a spacious table. I saw a hostess attempt to sit a larger couple at a very tight table with little room. I observed the couple look at each other and then back at her as they asked for another... More

I decide to try the Fire grilled steak. It was like eating a boot. Super tough! I was cooked perfect the cut was cheap and thin. I've eaten the same steak at other locations and it was great. I don't know what happened here.

Applebee's has been around for a number of years and they have changed menu offerings many times. The current menu of 2 selections for the price of one offers many options for those who enjoy a dinning experience of appetizers and main course sharing options. Quantity is copious and quality is average.

My favorite dish is the fiesta lime chicken, but they offer many options. I was not impressed with their sirloin steak. The desserts are scrumptious.

Food and service is great. Kids enjoyed their meal. Husband and I ordered the 2 for $20. Both of our meals were good. We shared the spinach dip as an appetizer and it was good. Service was great! Our youngest had to have her corndog replaced twice for being cold/frozen. They took this meal off the ticket and gave us... More
