Average Applebee's in appearance, but with GREAT service! Food was very good! Wait staff was attentive to our needs/wants. Manager went around asking everyone how was the food and service. We ate here, then went over to the Commons to shop (short drive away). We will go back again soon.

Couldn't get in any of the fancy "higher" end resturants nearby, so took a chance on Applebees and was pleasantly surprised...clearly under-staffed, but service was great anyway, and food was quickly prepared and terrific...these guys saved our night out....

Ordered 2 for 25. Started with spinach and artichoke dip, cheese was a little browned, but not bad. Had the steak, awesome, so tender, on tended to save half but ate the whole thing, sides were garlic mashed potatoes and garlicky green beans. Friend had sirloin tips. No dessert, was craving key lime pie. Service was excellent, waitress was really... More

The atmosphere was casual yet easily accepting of a more intimate setting if needed. The food was very good, service was as well and we completely enjoyed our intimate dinner.

The margaritas are on the weak side. The early bird specials were good but not anything to write home about. But for the price I can't complain too much. The service was good and the staff friendly and efficient. We would go back.

Bartender kept guests in check. Service in bar was much better. We were sitting at a booth behind 2 toddlers so we moved to a bar table. Hostess should pay attention to couples vs. families and table accordingly. Food was hot & fresh. Got the molten chocolate cake to go. It was delicious!

The Applebee's chain continues to rate the lowest of all the restaurants I frequent. This one was a last choice for lunch and lived up to my intense dislike. Three in our party are gluten free. The host took 15 minutes to find the book listing foods on the menu with allergens. There are very limited selections and the food... More

Had a quick lunch there and was very disappointed. Food is okay but not a lot of attention to food presentation put into the plates. Also, weird combinations. I've never had mac & cheese with fried chicken fingers on the top. Kind of a weird combo. Club sandwich had soggy bread in the bottom. Will not return.

This is an Applebee's restaurant so unless you've been under a rock you pretty much know what you are in for. This is pretty true to form but the atmosphere is pretty flat. The staff seems tired but pleasant. Perhaps they are cold because we were stuck under a really cold draft of an undetermined origin. The food was okay.

A decent spot for lunch. Not an exceptional supper place but all right. A very American restaurant, kids will enjoy.
