My wife and I ate there last night. We both had the shrimp wonton stir fry, which was delicious. Also, a bargain since it was buy one get one free. Our server was polite, friendly, and attentive. A great experience - will definitely go back.

I am so disappointed in this Applebee's!! I can't believe how long we sat here waiting for our check. Our order was screwed up and we received our dessert before our appetizer. Smh!! Our waitress was in such a hurry to leave until she left right in the middle of our order/conversation. This Applebee's needs an overhaul!! No thanks for... More

When we arrived it was very busy so we expected Long delays and frazzled staff. However it was great service speedy delivery and excellent quality of food. The staff were rushed off their feet but we only experienced complete professionalism and the staff were very welcoming with a happy disposition. We had the Sirloin steak and the chicken with shrimp... More

Stopped in on a Sunday evening. Frazzled hostess said she would seat us but had no menus because she had two very large parties being served. So we sat but did get menus right away. But that's all we got. No one came to our table even though several parties that came in behind us were served. We left after... More

Imagine 6 adults and 7 children (ages 3 to 9) waiting more than an hour and one-half to be served when the restaurant is almost deserted. Imagine getting the drinks promptly, but no chips, no bread, no salad while you wait. Imagine being told three times that "it will only be a few more minutes". Now imagine when 2 steaks... More

we went the day the hurricane hit. They were short staffed because employees could not get there. We had a party of nine and the manager and waitresses were running around going crazy. We were pleased with the meals and the service. The manager and short staff did a great job.

We normally don't visit chains especially because there are so many lovely restaurants here but we had gift certs. The food was not what we expected but was fresh and delicious. We'd definitely go back.

We come here occasionally, haven't really ordered anything other than appetizers in awhile so we were surprised to see the changes in the menu. All appeared to be good changes though, and while I stuck to an oldie, but goodie (the chicken fajita rollup,) my friend ordered the whisky chicken, of which he had no complaints. I did order the...

Dinner date with my husband. Service was good, our server friendly and attentive. Food arrived in a timely manner and was good. Average choice if you don't want to wrestle the crowds at a specialty restaurant.
