Tried a few different Applebee's, hoping it was like Bennigan's. Bland food, rude service and they cant even make a coronarita the way it should be. Go to Chili's, still a little high in price, but at least the food has flavor to it, and the customer service is much better.

Not bad. Service was okay, food was the usual fare even with the new menu, i'll have to come back and try some of the new items on the next trip just to be fair. They still need to figure out how to get the draft beers cold. The wife and I both got semi cold beer.

Had a wonderful dinner with my daughter, service was very nice and business wasn't terribly busy so was seated quickly and ordered quickly as well. Food was delicious and new menu items were a welcome surprise as well.

My friend flew into town late and wanted to grab a bite to eat so we went to half off apps, but the menu was limited with only a few options. However, the margarita was delicious!!

When you replace customer service with machines you loose that one on one personal touch. I personally like to talk to my waitress and get to know her. I don't get it with all the kiosk payment machines... yes, it might be fast service but what about us people that like to take our time eating and enjoying our meal..

After a full day in bad weather with a 4 and 5.5 year old we arrived about 5 on a Thursday. The kids ordered grilled cheese and a corn dog. The side of yogurt and strawberries was a nice change from fries. They loved it! my daughter and I did a 2/$20. Great deal....each had a nice salad and a... More
