This is the second Applebees I have been to in the last 2.5 weeks as I'm traveling (we don't have these at home). Compared to the last one in West Pennsylvania this was an excellent overall experience. Great service and great food in a comfortable setting. The salad, salmon, and vegetables were fantastic! The waitress was very engaging, served us... More

We went there for a family outing/ cheap birthday dinner. The waitress (Ri) seemed pleasant, and took our orders quickly. After bringing half of the food she seemed to disappear. When the adults had finished their meals the kids still hadn't received their food and nobody got drink refills as the waitress was nowhere to be seen. After telling another... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and were pleased with the choice. My husband had the Butcher's meat & potato and enjoyed it. He said the beef was tender. I had the crispy brew house chicken that had gravy and mashed potatoes. The chicken was a bit overcooked but tasty. Onion rings on top were a nice addition to... More

Applebees has very good food, but higher prices. The portions are getting smaller on big plates which makes it more obvious. Service here was friendly and courteous. Food arrived in good time, and fresh. Salmon was delicious, as well as the sweet potato fries. Husbands large burger was tasty, and his onions rings looked lost on the plate.

I try to avoid chain restaurants, especially Crapplebees, but those wonton tacos..... Anyhow we stopped in for a quick brunch. Took longer than we planned for, but service was decent and food was....surprisingly excellent! Of course the wonton tacos and spinach artichoke dip were super good, that's to be expected. My shocker? The lime chicken stuff. The rice that goes... More

Service was adequate, but nothing over the top. Several requests for extra butter and other needs went unmet. Seems as though staffing was inadequate as we didn't see many servers present. The food was great.

The seat had a hole in it. The sun was in my eyes, and THE ENTIRE TABLE WAS CRAWLING WITH ANTS. They did nothing about it except to offer to move us. $40.00 to eat with ants, and it was no picnic! Gone never to return!

My family of 4 was seated quickly. Waited.....waited.....waited...for service. The place was less than 1/2 capacity. Someone came and said our waitress would be right there. Waited...waited...waited. Apparently we were seated outside our waitress's area but no one told her. Did I mention some staff was just walking around, doing nothing? THE FOOD: my burger was quite good..my wife enjoyed...

It has been a very long time since I have been at an Applebee's and my visit for lunch was satisfactory. It is like many chain restaurants, it will be good but not great but at least consistent. I ordered the fiesta lime chicken that was pretty good except for the very dry and tasteless rice served with it. I... More

Dry, tasteless, grey looking steak which should have been very good considering it was a New York Cut. It seemed to have been freezer burnt and unable to be seared properly. Shrimp plate was just average, and nothing spectacular. Salads and veggies were good. I guess we got the "short end" of things because we didn't order overpriced cocktails, or... More
