What can you say about Applebee's? It's always good the bartenders are always friendly lots of sports on the TVs, prices are very average. We enjoyed coming here because it's quick and easy and they always have the two for 20, Plus now with the Christmas season you get a $50 gift certificate and you get $10 free. It's always... More

I have had a few bad experiences with this restaurant chain but this particular location has changed my mind. The service was excellent. Friendly wait staff is always a plus in my book. The portion size on the appetizers and the entrees was surprising compared to the last few locations that I had been to. I enjoyed the atmosphere and... More

We used to like to come to Applebees for dinner, the service and quality of food lately has gone down hill. Very disappointing. Witnessed a waitress on Veterans Day chase after a gentleman - followed him out to his car and banged on his window yelling at him... he came back in and showed a receipt - she did not... More

It was a Tuesday night 5:00 and we came here for my wife's birthday. We ordered an appetizer and our entrees. First the waitress came back and said they had no more baked potatoes. How can they run out of baked potatoes on a Tuesday at 5:00? If they ran out the manager should have gone to Walmart, which was... More

My husband and I have always enjoyed Applebee's for a variety of reasons. Good food selections, comfortable atmosphere, friendly service and the food is delicious! Recently we were there and enjoyed their steak special. All perfect just as one would expect. We do feel the alcoholic drinks are a bit expensive, but that is a choice you can decline.

Pork chop was cooked perfect. The macaroni and cheese with bacon had a wonderful flavor; but it was served lukewarm, not hot (as was my sister's). We didn't bother sending it back as it appeared the restaurant was short staffed and we could hear yelling in the kitchen area (not sure if staff was joking or not having a good... More

Good food and service. Entrees around 10-15$, draft beers 6-7$. Good for families with children as well.

Be careful if you have an allergy! I ordered a dish that appeared to list all ingredients, but actually omitted an ingredient (cucumber) that I am highly allergic to -- and its presence on the plate was not obvious. But I had a hunch, and it turned out the "apple" listed on the menu was actually "apple cucumber relish," according... More
