Comfortable spot, stopped here for supper the first 4 nights in town. Good service and food. Atmosphere was nice, might be a little loud if your looking to sit back and relax. Recommend the Triple Hog Dare Ya.

My fiancé is a veteran so we decided to check out Applebee's Veterans Day deal. First of all they get kudos for doing that for our service men and women. Vets chose from a limited but decent menu.

First time in Applebee's in couple years. Made some significant improvements in their menu. Great new burgers. Waitress was below average, seemed forced and robotic and it wasn't busy during this lunch time. Food would be a 4 or 5. Service dropped the score.

I had not eaten at an Applebee's for several months. The steak I ordered was delicious. The mushrooms had a unique flavor and there were plenty of mushrooms to have enough for every bite of steak. The mashed potatoes were also very good.

Wrong food put in "to go" bag. Sirloin (not ordered) had more gristle than meat. Just not enjoyable.
