Had early dinner with business group, everyone enjoyed the their food. Service could be a little faster, but the staff is very friendly

More than the 10 min waiting for the server. Table full of plates and nobody cleaned it for us. Baby food was the last that was served and it wasn't what was ordered. Soda never refilled. Plates trunked. The worst place I have been.

About as decent as one comes to expect from a chain restaurant. Food average at best, not terrible but not great either. Service is probably the best part of the experience.

I gave them 1 Circle only because TripAdvisor won't let me give less than one Circle and still do a review. Is there the other day with friends we both ordered the ribs that were so tough I try so hard the manager tried to tell if they were overcooked. When ribs are overcooked the meat next to the Bone...

The atmosphere always seems friendly in here. Plenty of choice on the menu but generally "American" style food - soups, burgers, chicken, steak, some fish choice and salads etc. We did have a "balloon lady" come around the tables offering to make balloon shapes for kids which was nice but it did make you feel 'obliged' as such, to tip,...

I'm not usually into chain restaurants as most are just average and provide standard fare. However, this Applebee's is a nice place for drinks and appetizers. A friend came into town and wanted a quick bite and a drink after getting off the airplane. I had not been to this neighborhood Applebee's and decided to give it a try. My... More

Living close to Applebee's makes it our most-likely go-to place for those evenings when cooking just doesn't seem feasible. It's great for carry out with their online ordering and curbside pickup. But we also enjoy an occasional eat-in there. The food is good, not gourmet, but good. We like the low-calorie choices especially.

My brother and I chose Applebee's for a dinner catch up again this year. With the new menu and the summer specials it was hard to decide. Kristine L arrived at the table wearing a silken shirt over a tank top: a little too comfortable in my opinion. I chose the BRW Pub Philly and the house made chips. My... More

I came here around 1:30pm on Father's Day with my party of 7. I expected service to not be up to par, and I was right. Our server didn't frequent our table enough, we had to ask for refills, and he didn't have an energetic/happy attitude. It's just another day of work for him. Most of the dishes were good,... More

This was our second visit to this Applebee's. The first was right after it had opened and it was such a disaster that I got up and walked out. This one was better but still not up to the quality of the other Applebee's that we have visited. Our family enjoys the Applebee's chain and visit them whenever we get... More
