The food is your average Applebee's food. Our server was polite, prompt, and helpful. The parking was very tight - there were not very many spaces.

The choices for reduced-calorie meals are honestly so good that we can't figure out why people order the regular meals! Other than being too salty, the diet meals are a terrific alternative to cooking at home while trying to get rid of a few pounds!

Business meeting, orders onion rings, cheese sticks, marginal but edible. Perfect Margarita was less than but there was a lot of it. Ribeye steak was full of fat - and I like fat - gristle and little flavor, red rose potatoes were okay but seemed over done, the broccoli was great if it were on a veggie plate with dip... More

A full restaurant and short wait. The service was prompt and food specials were a bargain although tasting pretty ordinary.

We always enjoy Applebee's, and the food is always good. This place was no exception, except that the waitress was very busy, and never came back to ask how we were doing. We felt a little neglected.

Sitting at the bar here is always fun. The Perfect Margarita is a hard-to-beat drink. This is a good chain restaurant with reliable food and beverages, nothing fancy, but you know what to expect. The oriental chicken salad is a favorite and is on their two for $20 menu-two entrees and an appetizer. For our appetizer, we enjoy the tortilla... More

We go here on occasion, mostly because it usually pleases everyone and it's close. Parking lot is a nightmare as spaces are too small and ends with a brick wall that's makes it impossible to turn around. Now, on all the tables are these tablet-like gizmos. The allow you to order your food and pay for your food. They also... More

Am so enjoying the amazing service at the Applebees in OR. We've been to 2 so far that have really blessed us - we aren't used to that good, quick or friendly service at an Applebees! Food was good as always and we loved the staff - friendly, efficient AND fun!
