“Very artificial tasting”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

It tastes very artificial... The smoke flavor is like out of a bottle and the meat tastes artificially tenderized. The veggies don't have much flavor at all. The entire experience is just a mix between artificial and bland. If you know and enjoy real food you probably won't like this.

“Great Family Experience - thanks Annette !”

“Great family experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013 NEW

So, we're visiting from abroad and I went for lunch on Christmas Eve with my 4 and 5 year old sons (Daddy stayed home), and was really pleasantly impressed by the fabulous service (your server Annette was just a pet- really patient with the boys, she joked and made them feel welcome and very important - she chatted for ages with them about what Santa may be bringing) . The restaurant showed huge patience and the boys are dying to get back to Applebee's - -nice job , we'll return !!

“Great Food and Service as Always”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Just got down here from Canada and once again Applebees proved to be very consistent. We tried their new 2 for $24 menu. I had the shrimp and my wife the steak. Both meals were excellent.

Our waitress was prompt and friendly. Nice meal and oh yes a great appetizer being the boneless wings went well.

“Don't like the food”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Steak must be frozen because it did not come out rare or tender. Vegetables cold and hard. The atmosphere is nice.
