The menu has changed and it's not even a bistro-type to me. None of the entrees looked appealing to me, so I ordered a sirloin, cooked medium rare... well it wasn't medium, and was tough to even cut with a knife, and to chew it. The steamed brocolli was good, and you can't go wrong with a baked potato. 1... More

I was seated within a reasonable time, and waited on quickly. The restaurant had a nice ambience, and was clean. I ordered a salad and it came out quickly. It was not very large for a main entree, and had no bread or crackers with it, hence the 4 star rating. I find Applebee's to be slightly overpriced for the... More

Stopped here for lunch - worst mistake ever. Dining area was not clean, waitress sat us at a dirty table and I had to ask for her to clean it off. Took a long time to place order and then when order came, dish was missing sauce and was poorly made. I get this dish often at my local Applebee's... More

The food was good and the new pomegranate martini is good. All three of us eat different things and naturally.

Stayed at a hotel right behind this Applebee's and enjoyed a nice meal. Thus chain restaurant gets a bad rap sometimes. We have always found their food to be good and their salads as fresh as any we've had other places.

If you've been to the Applebee's chain, you know what to expect. Food quality and service were good and on par with other chain restaurants

A huge menu of all your favorites, including soups and salads. Great prices and attentive staff make this Applebees one of my "must go to" while in the area.

When you can see finger prints on menus, salt and pepper, front door, imagine what the kitchen must look like.

It's next door to two hotels and has beer. What more? Well, I'm not enthused about the chain's menu. Here’s the deal. I eat plain ol’ food. I know my preferences and I don’t like weird glop deposited on or beside my main course, which should be meat. If menus have words like “jicama,” “gorgonzola,” “panko,” “chimichurri,” and adjectives ending... More

This summer, my mother-in-law and I took my husband to Applebees to celebrate his birthday. We chose some items from the fire-grill menu. The food was good, just a little too grilled for my taste, but overall okay. I had a nice drink from the bar - a raspberry cosmopolitan! I have always been pleased with their cocktails. The restaurant... More
