Good food. Great happy hour food. Sometimes we have to ask for the overhead music to be turned down, and the staff is always obliging. Thank you.

The table they seated us at was dirty and needed to be wiped down. When the drinks were served they forgot a lemonade, which eventually found it's way to our table after our appetizer but before dinner was served. I tried their new signature cut steak. I was very disappointed. It was really rough and fatty.

Cold food, slow service, gross food!! Not much else to say about it never again. The location is going downhill super fast, and you can see they good employees leave and we are left with poor service

Excellent! Jenni the barkeeper is there for 24 years and makes the best drinks in the area! Worth to be a barfly! Amazing food as well, the classic is the Oriental Chicken and the Brunch Burger is a feast!

We travelled from Canada for a girls hockey tournament, we were having a lousy day (car breaking down among other things) until we arrived at Applebee's. They definitely work as a team. Seemed like all the staff's goals were to make everyone's visit great. Even the manager heard we were having a bad day and went over and above to... More

What else to expect from a Applebee's than Applebee's food ? Nothing really special and standard average food... Good that's it...

For many years we were regulars at Applebees, most times for either lunch or appetizers at night. We decided to stop today for lunch and was not impressed. My wife ordered the lunch soup and salad which was considerably smaller than the last time here, and was on a dirty plate. They took it back and put it on a... More

Four of us went for a birthday lunch. We all enjoyed our meals. The two for $20 is a real deal and the fiesta chicken was superb! Tasty, hot and delicious. The rice was not great. Our waitress was pretty inattentive. We asked for more coffee and our desserts were served and long gone before she returned with the coffe... More

For an appetizer I ordered the mozzarella sticks w/ marinara sauce and the sauce seemed to be already used and the container looked dirty The waitress eventually replaced the sauce. On my plate I found a chip which was odd, since I ordered a burger w/ fries. I was disappointed by the cleanliness but the food was pretty good. It... More
