Have been to this applebees many times before and we now will no longer go. It seems filthy dirty, sticky furniture and tables and funky smells. Here is my comments from tonight's dinner. Our host was a very large man...not a problem I go 260 plus!! His black shirt was filthy. Hair so unkept and this is applebees dress code?... More

been getting the same salad for 20 years and it hasn't changed a bit! I still go in once in a while and the service is always wonderful. for 25 dollars you can pick 2 meals and an appetizer and the choices are good.

This franchise has been going down hill for a while now, and this location is no better. I've had hair in my food, mixed up orders, and terrible service. Will never eat at Applebees again.

Horrible. Ordered a bloody Mary...asked if I wanted the "works" ...I said yes, the more salad in it the better! I rec'd a tall glass of tomato juice with a piece of celery. I said , This is your loaded bloody? No mistake, that is their bloody with the works. I couldn't get a beer chaser unless I got Bud... More

This restaurant is close to where I work so I frequent it occasionally. The food is ok but nothing special. The menu has changed recently and I find the selections to be worse than before. The service is hit or miss as well as the quality of food. Plus, the portions seem to have gotten smaller. I usually order the... More

It's an Applebee's. Good service, decent food at reasonable prices. Pretty good beer selection on tap.

A wide variety on the menu that's regularly refreshed, including healthy choices. Applebee's is a very good choice when you want consistent quality and a variety of tastes to take into account.

The service at this particular Applebee's continues to decline for over a year. This evening I ordered a no pink bacon cheeseburger only to have a 2 inch red bloody bun and bacon that is so black it is unrecognizable. All of the food was cold even though we had to wait. Pass this Applebee's by and go to another.... More

Having been a fan of Applebee's for a few years we decided to go for burgers for lunch. The burgers I remember from other Applebee's locations were very good. What a disappointment at this location. We arrived about 20 after Noon and it was not very busy which should have been a warning. We were welcomed and seated as usual,... More

AWFUL. Service was terrible. Waited 30 minutes (of a one-hour lunch break) for lunch from "quick" menu (party of 4 had soups and salads). Had to keep asking server (obviously new and inexperienced, as he had no idea about the menu) to refill drinks. When food finally arrived, it was ALL wrong. Every person had wrong food and cold soup.... More
