We had a good meal here. It was a typical Applebees. We were seated right away and the staff members were very pleasant. My husband had a shrimp and chicken meal and I had pasta and chicken. Both were tasty and they gave us generous...More

Had dinner here a little after 6pm with a moderate crowd inside. Our server was attentive and friendly, and the entrees arrived in about 10 minutes. As others have mentioned, typical Applebee's fare. About what I expected.

This is the worst Applebee's I have been to anywhere in the country. My Bloody Mary was nothing more than tomato juice and vodka. Our boneless wings came with no celery and blue cheese dressing that had been mixed with ranch dressing. My ribs were...More

Just your typical cookie cutter Applebee's. Haven't ate at this one in several years now and was reminded why I've stayed away from this chain. The food wasn't bad other than our onion rings. They were tough to eat and we didn't even finish eating...More

We were given a discount ticket by the hotel to dine there. We were warmly greeted by the host and our server was excellent. Food was awesome.

Waitress is thorough but it took far too long for main course. Kitchen must be backlogged. Food was good upon arrival

I ordered the unlimited riblets. They were warm to cool. The meat wasn't tender. Fries were fair. Drank water. Definitely was NOT worth $14.46

The experience was disappointing. The food was exceptionally salty this night. Our appetizer never came but the waitress was pleasant and removed from our bill. Was looking forward to nice and tender ribs but got the vastly overlooked version. More like jerky than tender baby...More
