I had a late night work so we did not eat until 11:30pm. The waitress was great in that she did not make us feel rushed (they closed at midnight) and the food was great. Problem is that there are homeless people hanging out in the parking lot asking for money. One lady came into the restaurant asking for an... More

What keeps me coming back is the great personal attention we receive from the serving staff. They truly make us feel like we are family and take the time to get it right. We don't like to complain - here we have never had the need to complain. The cooks get the meats cooked right and according to our special... More

The food was good and we had many choices to accommodate everyone in our party. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff was friendly and efficient. The only problem we had was we ordered 2 steaks rare and they came out medium well to well done. We mentioned this to the manager and they just offered dessert for compensation.... More

Applebee's is Applebee's. But my husband is on a special diet. Our waitress offered suggestions that totally fit within his diet needs. Two thumbs up from us!

We went with a Baseball Team and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. The service was very good, the food was decent, bottom line the team was treated very well (we had 30 people). This place has such a variety of foods on their menu, almost too many. Can't go wrong with the Bee's.

Service was okay. New Sirloin Stir Fry... You can pass on it. The drinks were the best thing we had: water and a root beer.
