Upon entering, we were courteously greeted and seated immediately. Waitress promptly took our drink orders, consisting of 2 waters with lime, and a root beer for our son. Drinks came quickly. Felt somewhat rushed to place order, as menu is extensive. My wife and I settled on their 2 for $20 special, which consists of 2 full entrees and 1... More

Went to Applebee's because we received gift cards for Christmas. The portion sizes for the sides of fries were tiny. I got the ribs and they were OK. Our waiter was fantastic and on top of things.

Lunch was busy. We ordered the two for twenty. Caesar salads were yummy, lettuce was fresh and plenty of dressing. My entree of chicken strips was not what I expected. Small strips were more an appetizer size than entree size, but were tasty. Honey mustard dipping sauce was very good.

We were traveling with our dog and the temperatures in the area didn't allow us to leave the dog in the car for dinner so we took advantage of their carryout option. They were quick and efficient. The server noticed one item had been left out and quickly retrieve it. This option is a lifesaver for us traveling with a... More

My husband and I went for dinner our first night in town, as we had gift cards. It's been years since I've been to an Applebee's (as I got sick afterwards), but my husband went to one recently and said it was good. I got the mexican lime chicken (or something like that), it was ok. My husband got the... More

My son's favorite restaurant. I find it hit or miss. This time it was a hit. We had the pub burger and the brunch burger. Both were excellent. Kids enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent this visit.

As with most Applebees restaurants, the doors were held open by the door guy. We were seated quickly and our server was there almost immediately. The place was clean, the food was good. What more could you want from a chain restaurant? I'd eat there again.

After getting seated immediately we waited about ten minutes for our server. The table that came in five minutes after us received immediate service from our waitress to be. Even the little light on the POS at the table did not get anyone's attention. I don't know why but the service has gone down over the last year or so.

We really enjoyed visiting this restaurant again. Decided to choose the 2 for 20 items. The food was good though I did not enjoy mine as well. Nice atmosphere and very good staff.
