We ate dinner here in a week-night getting there around 5:30pm......before the crowd. The food was not good. They were out of guacamole, the steak was tough and the nachos were very greasy! We will not go back. The only good thing I can say is that we had a very nice waitress.

We had good service with an attentive waiter. Our meals were good and prepared are ordered but simply not great or awesome. Came you think of anything... More

Food was greasy and waitress was slow. We would not recommend. It wasn't worth what we paid but we didn't complain as we were exhausted after a long trip.

Needed somewhere to catch lunch with family before attending a wedding. Arrived at 12:30pm and was able to get a huge booth for 6 adults. Food was excellent as usual and waitress was attentive and kept us well hydrated!! Always know that we can count on Applebee's for a good meal! Thank you!!

My steak was great-tasting and lean. Service at the bar was really quick, and the barmaid didn't make fun of me for drinking only a large milk.

My friend didn't know where to go; but didn't want any ethnic foods - no mexican, no asian, no fast foods- hooray for a menu with lots of choices. Salads, soups and meat for my meateater friend. It was good, if not spectacular, my salad came overloaded with double dressing, and I could have and should have given it back,... More
