I won't bore you with too much dialogue here. It's an Applebee's and you get what you expect here. Food is decent, price is average, and the service is passable and pleasant. I like it because it is within easy walking distance from a hotel I frequent - the Springhill Suites.

If you want some variety in the area, there are several other choices within easy walking distance from this place including Five Guys, Moe's, and Kanki's Japanese Steakhouse.

After a long drive and checking in to our hotel, we wanted a relaxing quick bite to eat before visiting our children and grandchildren. When met by an unfriendly hostess who tried to lead us to a table near the kitchen door and an inattentive waitress whose priority was chatting with her cohorts, we finally placed our order and patiently waited for our food. Moreover, we had to search for the waitress to pay the tab. Meanwhile, the manager pompously meandered as if everything was honky-dory! This attitude is not atypical

I went to this new Applebee's location with my two kids on a weeknight. My kids counted 16 TVs in a relatively small Applebee's. The server was very attentive until we wanted our check and then after about 15 minutes of waiting I had to get the hostess to find him. The food was good--in keeping with Applebee's normal.

There were a number of birthdays in the restaurant while we were there and, I have to say, it was the best singing waitstaff that I have heard (with the exception of an Opera Cafe).
