“sit down and wait”
Reviewed 13 December 2011

I arrived late at night. Noisy- nasty rap music playing from the Bar- I was about to leave after being ignored for 10 minutes at my table- but finally was served.
Food was average for this chain and was cooked from a frozen state to the plate. Check your meat- the exterior may be looking good- but thhe interior may be udercooked. I asked for medium well on the steak buut received almost rare, ( A sign of a rookie cook) Problem is that when you send it back- they always murder it- so unless it is inedible- deal with it.
Anyway- service and atmoshpere was the problem. The food was standard.

“Good service, horrid food”
Reviewed 28 October 2010

We went to this Applebees location expecting great service and good food. The service was ok, but the food was another story. My wifes dish was served to her cold. The server warmed it in a microwave and turned it into rubber. My kids came hungry and left hungry. Nothing was offered to us for compensation of our terrible experience. Stay away from this Applebees.

“Great service”
Reviewed 22 May 2010

This restaurant while a chain, exhibited outstanding service. We walked over from the motel and while there it started to pour. One of the wait staff escorted us back to the motel with an umbrella. Went out of their way to be sure we were waited on quickly and satisfied with our meal. Thanks for all the help.
