“Will not return to this location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

Very disappointed... this is the 1st Applebees we have been to that didn't have the NFL Sunday package. On top of that, all the tv's shut off multiple times while there so couldn't even watch the one game they did have playing. Ordered their chips and salsa for an appetizer and the salsa was good but the chips tasted like old stale cooking oil! Oriental chicken salad tasted good like usual but the quesadilla burger was lacking in flavor. Service was average... nothing great.

I havent been to this Applebees in awhile, but we decided to give it another chance, and it was great!! Our waitress, Rachel, was very attentive and friendly. The food came out quick and tasted great! I will definately be back!!

“It's Applebee's not Morton's Steakhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013 via mobile

We don't expect much from Applebee's other than a good meal at a fair price. And that's what we get. Our food took a little long and my father-in-law was getting a little mad but he's old and grouchy anyway. Lol. The waitress had a good sense of humor about him and bantered back and forth with him. I had the riblet plate and it was good. We really had no complaints about the food. We were satisfied. Took forever to get our check but we weren't in a rush.

“If you aren't hungry when you arrive, you will be before you ever get your food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013

We had reservations for lunch for 11 and had one long table. 4 of us were served, ate, and left...and it was a good 2 hours before the other 7 of us were served. The restaurant census was very low that day so it wasn't because they were busy. The server kept coming over to apologize for the delay but a reason was never explained---not that it mattered but it would've been nice to know. When we got our meal, one dish had a hair on it so it went back and understandably she didnt order anything else. When our check came there was no discount for our terrible inconvenience. Most of us were from out of town for the weekend so this ate terribly into our precious time there. There are so many places in that area that I'd definitely skip this Applebee's.

“Very Appealing menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

When it comes to selections for every taste bud moment, Applebee's usually rises to the occasion. Atmosphere and service at this venue are great
