Usually, Applebee's has good service and food. Unfortunately for our group, our visit it was not pleasant. What drove us away from there, was the terrible smell throughout the restaurant. The smell has penetrated the fixtures, the carpet, it is everywhere. We took our food to go and had to eat outside. We could not understand how people can eat... More

The greeter Brian was exceptionally friendly and helpful. In fact, I took his advice and had the lunch special. One of the best $6.99 meals I've eaten. I plan to go back for lunch every day and have the lunch special until I've had everything on the menu.

Great menu and American fare. Location is handy in the Riverbank Claribel shopping center. They have specials also, have to ask if not offered. Drinks are always good here.

The food was very good love the 1/2 price apps after 9:00pm. However they acted as if they were closed when it came to the service. There were alot of people in Applebee's shirts just walking past our table. The waiter that was at the table next to our was to busy showing the people at that table his pictures... More

Friendly service. and good prices. The menu changes a lot, so no favorites, but good appetizers and a nice beer selection. Probaly my favorite for... More

Went here Friday night with my wife and the place was packed. We did enjoy our steak and the service was good. Didn't take for our food to be served. The atmosphere can be noisy since there will be many people drinking in groups. Not a place for a romantic dinner for two. Price is above average. Parking is easy.

great atmosphere, friendly staff. We went there for their 9pm till close happy hour. Great price on the beer and appetizers. to me personally, the appetizers have a lot more flavor than the actual burgers,sandwitches . The service can get a little slow when they get busy, but for the most part a pleasant experience.
