Had shrimp and chicken off the wood Fire grill menu. Moist and tasty. Wished that everything came out at once, though.. Nice crispy potatoes came out when chicken was gone. Personal peeve: sticky bar top, easily solved with cleaning. Plate actually got stuck on bar when bartender tried to remove it. Proof is in the cranberry stains on the bar-... More

We had a large group which I know can be overwhelming but our waitress didn't smile, didn't tell us her name and messed the orders all up. You could tell that she wasn't interested in serving us or maybe she was having a bad day but it was not a pleasant experience. It was another large group right across from... More

Made the experience that both food and service were always very good. The menu card changes from time to time and brings new (positive!) surprises, but the beer is always cold :-)

We arrived and seated promptly--then it was downhill from then on. Waitress was slow in taking our order and drink order was slow in arriving. My wife, myself and 2 grandchildren were in attendance. Another waitress stopped by and wanted to know if we had been served and where was our food. I told her we didn't know and had... More

Service was great....came in after morning graduation with a party of 6.....appetizers great but by the time our lunch came out 2 of our orders were wrong...we all ordered off the 2 for $20 or 2 for $25. Side items came out wrong and my potatoes were not done when they brought them out the 2nd time. The waitress offered... More

I had a few bas experiences with Applebees years ago and just plain quit going, we decided last summer to give them another chance and I must say the last 4 or 5 times we have been it was great...food and service was above my expectations.
