We keep trying to support our local Applebees but it just never gets any better. Today I had the boneless wings. The chicken was hard and chewy in places. My husband had some 3 pork sandwich and besides bacon there was hardly any meat on it. Service was very good. Won't be back anytime soon.

While the ribs are still as good as ever the menu is hard to read and understand as it has drastically changed at all Applebee's.

Service is fine if you come early. Food is fair to poor. Prices high for what they serve. Previous experience was even worse. Mistake coming back.

Four of us had dinner earlier this month in Applebee's and we all enjoyed our meals. The server, Valeka, was outstanding. She was prompt to visit our table after we were seated, to take our orders and to serve our food. A couple had the Thai shrimp salad which was declared delicious. I enjoyed the whiskey chicken dinner which was... More

The service was awful and the food not much better. The waitress did not listen to our orders...First steak was over done after I had requested Mid-Rear...told her and she ignored it. Finally came back after I had finished the side she asked why I hadn't eaten my steak, told her I was waiting for the replacement. She apologized and... More

I dined here for dinner on a Wednesday night. Place was half full at 7PM. Service was average and the food was typical for a Applebee's.

WWE went for supper because of all the ads on TV. I ordered a pork chop with fruit. I got mashed potatoes and gravy. I sent it back and finally got my dinner. The strawberry was moldy, I told the waiter, and he said sorry. I ordered strawberry lemonade to drink. My husband asked for a refill. It never came.... More

We went during the tail end of Happy Hour and ordered off the special menu. The food was very salty and not very good. They are very stingy with the drink specials. Service was slow and the waitress was not knowledgable on the product.

I have been to more that my fair share of Applebee's during my nationwide travels. This property is simply the best one I've been to. Why? The staff seemed better trained in the fine art of treating the customers like they were important. The food was prepared well and even redone when my husbands steak was overdone. Usually these chain... More
