We were concerned about the appearance from the outside, and once we went in, we were still concerned. This is not the best appearing Applebee's that we have been to. The service was okay, but sure nothing to brag about. The food was good and we didn't die. We probably won't go to this Applebee's again.

I ordered the sampler with 3 items for $12, including the boneless chicken wings, steak fajitas, and cheeseburger egg rolls. The boneless chicken wings and steak fajitas were fine. But the cheeseburger egg rolls had an overwhelming taste of pickles, even though the menu didn't say that they had pickles in them. I hate pickles, and the pickle taste was... More

I enjoy eating here. The food is good and the service is usually great! The 2 for $20 meals which includes an appetizer or salad, meal, and dessert, is a great deal!

To get to the point quickly: don't ever go here. First, it took an hour and 15 minutes to get our food. It was cold and a very small portion size. We actually ended up going somewhere afterwards to get a snack. Our waitress was a bit crazy. She was a control freak to put it nicely. She wouldn't allow... More

Wow, waited forever for drinks, then one was wrong. Sat in the bar area watching the bartenders and was given a line about looking for ingredients, then its a new bartender... No one was helping him and he never left to look for anything. The food was not cooked to the requested level. Four different people were working our table.... More

This Applebee's is located in front of the Mall and two of the busiest Restaurants in town are in the same area. As we had visited the other area restaurants we always saw the Applebee's, but the parking lot was about half full whereas the others were running over. We finally decided that we would try it. When we arrived... More

Butch is a terrible server. When the food we ordered came out wrong he was very rude to me. He knew it was his mistake but was very rude. The manager told us this was not anything new. Then why is he still there? I come here multiple times a month on business but won't be back after his behavior.

We were given a gift card for Applebee's and so about 8 months ago, we gave it a try. My wife had a catfish dish and it was cooked to the point of cardboard. I had a hamburger and it had absolutely no taste. We talked to the manager and we told her we would not be back. She encouraged... More
