“Great Attitude Staff”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Quick food and very friendly staff... just what I expect in the South! :) Clean and nothing looked run down.

I've eaten at Applebee's all over the southeast and have never had a bad experience at any of them. If they're slammed, the service can be a bit slow, but that's normal anywhere. I wish it was a little closer to home, though. Guess we'll just have to get dressed and go!

“Not as good as it used to be ... not living up to brand”
Reviewed 2 August 2011

I am an Applebee's fan and I have eaten often at this particular Applebee's. I've never expected gourmet cuisine and white linen tablecloths, but Applebee's traditionally provided good tasty food, fun atmosphere, and friendly service. In fact, two weeks ago, I dined at the Applebee's in Okemos, MI, and received all of that. But this Applebee's is slowly sliding into mediocrity ... average on a good night. It feels it bit unclean and unkempt at times. I used to rave over the Applebee's Sirloin, but the past few times I've had it here, it has not been very good quality meat or flavor. Particularly galling is that Applebee's corporate continues to mess with (and mess up) their signature Club House Grille Sandwich, now putting it on rye and loading it with tomato and lettuce. Once upon a time, it was ham, turkey, cheese, mayo, and BBQ on deliciously grilled sourdough. That was a classic, wonderful, simple sandwich triumph. Now, it's a goopy mess. The chicken wings and riblets remain very good here, as is the stellar French Onion Soup. The orange chicken stir fry is pretty good also. As for servers, it's a mixed bag ... not very consistent in quality or attitude. I want to love this place again ... a cleaner place, some more consistent service, and improved food quality can restore fortunes quickly here.
