A few at our table had specialty drinks and shared with us that the drinks were amazing. A group of 6 are best seated on high chairs and being seniors that was a... More

The food was about average for what you would expect from Applebee's. Went during happy hour to get appetizers since they are half off. Towards the end of the night it felt like we had been forgotten. Took a while to find our server to get our check.

The food is ok and the restaurant appearance is ok too, but the service is TERRIBLE!!! They pay no attention to you. Last time we're going there.

The service at this Applebee's was very poor!! I went with a friend, we ordered the 2 for $20 and ordered the house salad to go with our dinner. Our food was brought before the salad and when the salads were finally brought, we didn't get any salad dressing. It took another 10 minutes to get salad dressing. I probably... More

Food is good, good menu under 500 calories. The service is fine but make sure she or he know you are on limited time or during lunch. Not expensive at all. Cheers!

Went to Applebee's for a Friday Night Dinner while oldest was at High school Basketball Game. Although busy, seated immediately, service was fast and friendly. Menu has been updated with quite a few Pub Favorites. Got a chicken Quesadilla of the Starter Menu and it was great. This place is smaller than some of the others, so when full it... More

Food was good. Service overall was good other than forgetting the coffee which they forgot to take off our bill. Good menu variety. Reasonable prices other than the drink menu with no prices - beware. Would go again

The food has always been excellent but what i really appreciate is that Applebee's serves a fine steak to verterans on Veteran's day without charge (several other restaurants do likewise), so i salute them because vets that otherwise could not afford a first-rate steak with potato and vegies can enjoy one on their day. High marks for Applebee's.
