Not sure why I keep going to Applebee’s and expecting to get a great meal. I’ll never learn. This place was close and I was tired, didn’t feel like driving so I walked over from the Holiday Inn Express. Weak beer selection. I chose the...More

The food wasn't the best and the staff seemed more interested in each other than the three of us. Obviously I've been to many applebee's over the years, this one wasn't up to their standards this one particular evening.

We came in late in the evening after some late shopping and there was still a nice amount of people eating. That to me is a good sign. We went for the 2 for $20 deal and we were very happy with our service and...More

Have been here several times and they have never disappointed. Food has always been good and perfectly cooked. Hubby is addicted to their Wonton chicken tacos and they pack them with goodness.

I'm willing to bet this is like every other Bee's in the country. Food is usually ok. Drinks are ify- sometimes the bartender knows what they are doing, sometimes they don't and at $6.00/$7.00 for a mixed drink I'm not too happy when they can't...More
