This restaurant is very close, within walking distance to our hotel. Enjoyed a very good supper here. Typical Applebee's fashion. This chain is about the same no matter where you are. A mid range priced, typical menu, however all of us were very pleased with our food & drink. Was a bit later than supper hour, service was a bit... More

It's Applebee's. It's not delicious. It's decent. It's the same all over the country. The beer selection isn't great. The food is pretty good.

There is not many places to eat in this town. You will be ok eating here. Friendly staff. Traditional chain setup will small town appeal.

We like to eat here because it's close to the hotel where we stay. Started out with Blue Moon's. We both had the new wood fired grilled meat. My wife had the chicken bowl with mashed spuds and I had the thick cut pork chop, cooked medium. Everything was fantastic.

We at dinner there after a long day of traveling. We had good service and good food. The Olympics were on every channel and we got to enjoy some swimming. Nice family restaurant.

We decided to have a sit down dinner before going to the movies. I had not been to an Applebees in 10 years as I am not normally a fan. The hostess seated us promptly and the waitress came to the table within 5 min of our arrival. The menu had quite a few different options. I choose something bland... More

Service was outstanding, but the menu is generic Applebee's. Has a bad beer selection. Food is a heart attack waiting to happen, but for most in Clinton that might be welcome.

This is like Applebees everywhere in the USA (or at least ones that I have been to) with same set up, same menu and same general ambience – clean, decent menu, reliably pleasant food but all a bit boring and repetitious. Here the food was as expected – nice but without being anything special (perhaps what you might expect from... More

I don't really like Applebees that our main courses are not very flavorful however their desserts are to die for. For example I have the apple pie hence the reason Applebees and I really enjoy the pie it was creamy it was very sweet and perfectly season.

It is hard to go wrong with an Applebee's in any town. The food was good, menu varied and catering to most tastes and diets it seems. Service was good, prompt and friendly...what more can you ask for?
