Most people know the kind of food and quality that Applebee's provides, so I won't get into that type of review. What sets this restaurant apart from the others is the amazing waiter and manager we dealt with during our visit. I like to have fun with our waiters/waitresses, to make their experience serving us an enjoyable one. This waiter... More

Stopped by Applebees today to pick up a gift card. It was very quiet with several staff standing about. I stood at the bar and waited. One employee came over and took care of some business at the register right in front of me. She failed to acknowledge that I was standing there. Then she walked away. At least 2... More

The food is good, but typical for this chain restaurant. The service is also good. The place is busy and sometimes pretty crowded. It is the best Applebee's I have been to. The one in Milwaukee was very poor.

Ate there for dinner with a co-worker, good selection on menu, waiter was polite. Food was good. Have eaten at other Applebees and food was at least hot when served.

They no longer have wraps that my daughter liked. Went there for lunch. Not a lot on the menu I wanted to try....most things had a strange twist. Appetizers do not clearly say what they are.....my niece did not know hers would be spicy. I also think the menu is pricey for thus area. Did not like the flavored tea
