Found the Triple Bacon Burger to be cooked correctly (pink), but had BARELY any sauce on it so it tasted quite bland and dry. Wife had the 4 cheese Mac N Cheese with Honey Pepper Chicken Tenders which also had next to no sauce and/or CHEESE...It was like the noodles were plain. Do not frequent Applebees often...hopefully they will improve... More

We stopped in late after driving all day. The wait person was so friendly and we had excellent service. The food was good as always. On a bad note the restaurant was so cold we had to move location. We were still cold but it was better. Also the restrooms were not very clean.

The missus and I have not eaten here in many years. It's nothing personal, but more of a branding thing. It's not like you think "Oh, I'm really hungry, I'll go to Applebee's." Same with Chili's only worse, the name Chili's at least suggests that something Mexican or hot might be on the menu. "Applebee's" suggests what, green beer, leprechauns,... More

We have been here once or twice since moving here from NH but tonight was the last time we will frequent this sub standard restaurant. Our 2 appetizers arrived Luke warm, my chicken fajita wrap was drenched in sauce and cheese, with minimal chicken to be found. Drinks were watered down. The manager had to settle people down who were... More

We haven't ate at Applebee's in years and decided to go here for dinner and it's just not the same as it used to be. The beer is still ice cold and cheap but their food has changed so much. We always ordered the spinach artichoke dip and it was always good but this past time it didn't have much... More

The only reason I give two stars is for the waiter. Otherwise the food was over cooked way over cooked. I ordered the beef nachos and the hamburger was hard and greasy. The brunch burger was the about 3" in diameter and didn't fill up the bun. I was amused at how many fries I received: 12. These are the... More
