Ask for a table for four, and we're promptly taken to a table with three chairs. Hostess left and we had to chase down a chair. It took our waitress guide a while to approach us and take our drink order. Our food order arrived quickly, but most of it was over cooked. We didn't recieved any drink refills. We... More

Traveling on the road for 5.5 hours and checking into our hotel, my friend and I definitely agreed it was time for a late dinner. Our server was Kathy who was helpful and knowledgeable of menu items and the drinks. My friend and I choose off the 2 for $20 menu. I choose the American Standard burger with fries and... More

Took my kids here because I got a gift card. Got the 2 for $20 with a appetizer and my daughter got a meal. Turned out to be really good. Good stop for dinner. Service was great.

Applebee's is a chain restaurant and is pretty typical for a chain -- consistent menanu, fairly consistent level of service, etc. My experience with the service at Applebee's has generally not been good -- I've had some really slow service in a number of Applebee's but the service at this location was very good. We had taken my elderly mother-in-law... More

With Applebee's, you can't go wrong. They are very consistent and reliable. This location on Polaris Parkway has always been busy but their customer service is always great. They even have happy hour pricing on weekends. Their half off appetizers are hard to beat. Personally, I enjoy the Parmesan Shrimp and Steak. Add that with some spinach artichoke dip and... More

Under 600 menu is great. I had cedar grilled lemon chicken. It was so delicious. Would have still ordered it even it wasn't on the 2 for $20 menu. The waitress Kim was great. She brought extra napkins without us having to ask. There was something that was a concern. It was raining and the floor was extremely slippery as... More

I visited this Applebee's on April 28 for lunch with a group of seniors. We were 7 people all together and ordered from the lunch menu. Even though nothing was special in our order but all the items were common lunch foods, we had to wait overtime. I did not keep time, but it was abnormally long - longer than... More

Service is typically super slow (especially at lunch when getting soup and salad combo). We usually get good waiters though.
