Horrible music assaulted my ears while waiting for our table the same time as two kids from the closest table were jumping up and down and playing on the stairs right there. Screaming, yelling and making a run for their money to compete for worst noise with the music that was extremely loud. Then we got our table and it... More

The food is disappointing, chicken and shrimp full of nitrates, onion and mushrooms (2 slices) greasy and potatoes grilled to black. No matter how often I go there it never improves. Our salads were slow coming and we had just started them when the entry arrived So we were eating both at the same time. Unfortunately our server, Josh, didn't... More

This local restaurant has become one of our favorites. In the past several dining experiences here, all have been enjoyable. The servers have all been great, the menu offers ample selections, and none of us have had any complaints on the food we were served. The "wait time" has been minimal, even during peak times, the booths are very comfortable,... More

My daughter and I had lunch at Applebee's. We enjoyed it very much. I had the Philly sandwich and it was great. My daughter had a hamburger and she enjoyed it. We have no negative comments about the place. The waitress was so helpful and very nice. The bathroom was clean and so was the rest of the restaurant.

Applebee's is usually good for an adequately priced bite in a good atmosphere. I don't expect star-chef cooking. Food was ok, drinks too. In the end, service, however, felt a bit sluggish and slow. It struck me that they really like to have customers waiting to be seated despite plenty of empty tables. I am not from the area, so... More

We had a 15 min wait even though there were empty tables. The waitress was wrong about how a dinner was made, and the people bringing out the food didn't know what they had brought out. Very different than my usual experience here. I'll try Mimi's next time.

Applebee's 5-25-15 Good food, friendly service but disapointed. We were on our way from Yuma, Az. to Portland, Or. We stopped here for an early dinner. After a 10 hour drive we did not want a lot to eat. We remenbered that Applebee's had a half sandwich and a small salad. We did not know that was only for lunch... More
