I have eaten there a few times thinking that I had just picked the wrong thing or that maybe it was the cook. The food was greasy and just wasn't good. I have tried it a few time but never found anything I cared for and I am an easy person to please. Hard to impress but can normally find... More

My girlfriends and I went for dinner and found that Applebees has really great items on their menu. My friends tried Bourbon glazed chicken & shrimp with garlic green beans. I was afraid that the chicken might be too spicy for me so I ordered grilled chicken & tried my girlfriends Bourbon glazed. Hers was not too spicy for me... More

While visiting the in-laws we stopped in for dinner on a Sunday night. To be honest we only ate here because we were given a gift card for Christmas. Next year we will re-gift the card! We don't eat at Applebees in the North because it always sucks so we were hoping that it would be a little better in... More

Went to Applebee's for lunch. When I was seated, the lady who seated me placed a timer on my table and walked away. Never had that happen to me at a restaurant. On the menu there is a statement that says for certain items if the restaurant did not serve you within 12 minutes your food was free. I started... More

We sat down to a window sill with dozens of dead gnats. The screen on the video display that is table side was covered in greasy fingerprints, the bathroom had multiple pieces of toilet paper on the floor and the 4 tables surrounding us on our row only got bussed when they needed a place to sit someone. These facts... More

The kitchen took almost 30 minutes to give us cold hard cheese fries. After we got that squared away, the rest was alright.

I wasn't impressed with the food.my food literally had frozen ice in it two different times I've been here. They did take it off my bill, but I would rather pay for GOOD food! Looks like it is just a place to go hang out and drink. I don't think I will be eating back here until they get better... More

Hey..I am trying to eat here. Bartender brings in three kids, sits them in the bar area and has daycare. Other employees bringing in food from... More

Just had dinner and was very surprised!! Food was sooooo much better! Servers have always been attentive and pleasant - continues to be great! We've driven by many times and chosen not to return due to previous bad food experiences. I encourage you to give them another try. New menu with new food items, great prices and check out the...

I love Apple Bee's, but this last stop was terrible. Our waitress I think was Kelly, she was awesome. (This wasn't her fault by no means) We waited for 45 minutes just for appetizers. Got all our food at once. My noodles were way over cooked and I found random (food) stuff in my salad. We informed the main manager... More
