Staff was very enjoyable and handled a party of 20 with ease. Great service and friendly atmosphere. Would definitely return.

We like their 2 for $20 specials...pick one appetizer to share, and one entree each for two people. Daughter had side Caesar salad (she said the Parmesan shreds were too big) and I had garden with Italian dressing. I had the broiled chicken with lime, a heart healthy choice at 540 calories. I liked it. Served with cranberry rice quinoa.... More

Obviously not built to be fine dining, but come on. How can food fresh out of the kitchen be so "not hot" and dry (ribs & chicken). I ate here a couple of times during stay at hotel a couple of doors down, and it wasn't good, hot, warm, etc..

We stopped here with another family for dinner during a trip for a sporting event. The place was busy but service was prompt, drinks were refilled quickly, the food was good as always and we were pleased with the visit!

We had the 2 for $20 combo with spinach dip appetizer and 3-cheese grilled chicken pasta. The spinach dip was good, but not plentiful. The pasta looked delicious, but was swimming in such a thin, milky sauce that I had to ask for a spoon to even get any flavor of the sauce onto the pasta and into my mouth.... More

In my opinion Applebee's is a "middle of the road" restaurant and all are about the same with a few exceptions. We stay at a hotel next to this one so we usually have a few drinks and get our food to take back to our hotel room. Again, the food is always good but really nothing to write home... More

I have always liked Applebee's so we walked quite a difficult route to get here from our hotel. The service was good especially Aaron and they were good about providing separate checks. The shrimp and parmesan steak was gorgeous and the sweet potatoes were great. To drink I had a Bahama Mama and a Mudslide but they were both a... More
