On November the 3rd I conducted a business lunch at this Applebee's site. The hosted did as requested set us in a quiet section. The server Kala Beth was on the spot with her sevice and the food came out in a very timely manner.

Went with friends after the high school football game and had burger and fries and wasn't impressed with food, service or price, would not go back I am afraid, much better restaurants and prices to be had

We dine here frequently because let's be honest in a small town you don't have many options. Tonight we had really good service and the food was hot. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Really lacks consistency. Popular bar scene on Friday and Saturday nights.

Not a fan. Food not so great and service was even worse. I asked for a manager. They never came to the table. I won't be back.

I usually never eat Applebee's. I haven't ate Applebee's in probably five years. Tonight I decided to go to Applebee's with my girlfriend. It was the best decision I have made. We got the two for 20 deal and it was excellent! Our server was really great! I will be back if I come back to this area!!

We recently visited our local Applebees. Service and speed were good. Great location and good parking. Quality is where this location is beginning to wane. I ordered the "Large" house sirloin which was laughably small, turning out to be 8 ounces prior to cooking. Not what I;d consider a $16 steak by any stretch. I've could have probably overlooked the... More

Fine dining is lacking but Applelebees never pretends to serve fine cuisine. But it is fast and reliable. Salads are well prepared.

Very accomodating to seat a large group on short notice. Staff was very friendly, and food was of Applebee's quality - very good.

We were in Applebee's last night after being at the hospital with a family member that is not doing well. We need good food, fast and reliable. The hostess was great! Our server was very attentive and kept the beverages flowing. There were 5 of us and no one had any issues. Thanks for helping the family in a te... More
