Our server was very helpful - and patient - while we decided which 2/$20 and 2/$25 meals the 4 of us wanted. Also, I had a birthday dessert coupon. The apple cheesecake with ice cream was awesome and easily shared among the 4 of us. I always find Applebee's to be a good value and pleasant atmosphere. We were travelling... More

Went in 8:30'ish one weekday evening & shared appetizers & fries with my husband. The sweet potato fries were the best. The cheeseburger egg rolls were my least favorite. Enjoyed the mini chicken quesadillas but LOVED the raspberry iced tea. The fries were about $1.50 and the two appetizers were 1/2 sized portions priced as pick 2 for $8.99. Just... More

Good as any other Applebee's. Our server was not so friendly and was gruff. No wait for our table of 8

Soon as we walked in, it was chaos.. The hostess didn't know what was going the manager sounded drunk, acted drunk and looked drunk. There was about 5-6 couples/ families leave just before we got there. Would not recommend this Applebee's to anyone. Plenty of better restaurants in the area

We tried Applebee's as a family to get some variety. We were not sure how the 4 year old would act or eat but he participated fine. The biggest negative was the service. We had not been accustomed to wait so long for the appetizer. We were told they were under staffed and busier than anticipated, but I don't know.... More

We stopped going to Ruby Tuesday's a couple of years ago because everything on the menu seemed microwaved from a frozen bag. Lacking in taste. And the decor was cold and without personality. But, things are different now and new items on the menu have us coming back again. Love the new burgers and late night apps. Good job.
