As soon as I sat down I wondered if I was in an Applebee's, other than the emblem on menu holder, I saw nothing to reassure me that I was in the right place. Usually at others I been greeted with "Welcome to Applebee's". There was no salad bar . Menu selections were meager. I ordered the Bourbon steak with... More

A great place to get a good meal. A little pricey but the service was great. I had the deep fried shrimp, baked potato and steamed broccoli. My fiancee had the Chicken and broiled shrimp. You can get meals 2 for $20 or 2 for $25. Does not include any kind of drinks. But great atmosphere and friendly staff.

This was hands-down the best Applebee's we have ever been to. From the time we walk then there were genuine smiles from the waitresses. Our waitress was very helpful in selecting a good lunch and was very attentive. The food was very good but honestly I would go back for the service alone. Outstanding job!!

Went for Monday burger night and did not realize until we received the check that they now only include a few burgers in the special price of $6.99. Formerly any burger was $6.99. Disappointed that the server did not tell us of the change. Broccoli was too salty. Had to send it back and ask for broccoli with no salt.

High chair came without s buckle and my husband had to go look for one that wasn't broken by the restrooms. Wait staff saw him looking and offered no help. Chicken Caesar salad barely had any chicken, the leaves were wilted, and I must have gotten the last of the croutons because there was a pile of crumbs on top... More

I usually get the Oriental Chicken salad when I go to Applebee's. It is always good, though a little more chicken would be great. Brandon V was our server and he was very good. He brought extra dressing for my salad and re-filled our water glasses without being asked!

I still go to this Applebees and enjoy the food but everytime I have the ribs they are to dry so I now order other items that are very good. Staff is fast and friendly.

We ate here for lunch but decided against the lunch menu and went for the 2 for 20 meal. We had the boneless honey BBQ wings for the appetizer to share and there was plenty to share. I had the chicken penne pasta and it was so large I took half home. My wife had the oriental fried chicken salad... More
