We have eaten at this Applebee's since it first opened. It was always our GO TO restaurant but that's changed. The menu changes have not always been good with many favorites now gone but we understand this is a corporate decision. BUT, the service has deteriorated over the years, now getting a good server is rare. We've had servers argue... More

I often stop at Applebee's when I travel for business. I really like the quesadilla burger and I find since it was offered by the chain many of the location forget how to make it, The use a compacted burger and don't have the topping balance right. This location really know what they are doing the burger is right. If... More

My whole family got together together. We were a group of seven. Our waitress was awesome and very patient. I just can't remember her name. Food came in a timely manner and she was very attentive to all of us. Look forward to going back again really soon.

This Applebee's is open until 1am Mon-Saturday. So when my husband and I want a late dinner this is our place. The food is always good and the staff is always friendly .

Worst of the chains. Average food, if that . Staff friendly and service usually good. Every time they have a decent meal they take it off. They also just changed their 2 for $ 20.. promotion. Removed most of the few items that made it OK. I live less than a mile from one and go about 3-4 times a... More

Excellent food, service, and convenience. This Applebee's restaurant is one of the best we ever patronized. The food, including the salmon, was very good. The service was great and the manager is a real people person. We coupon and when there was a problem with ours the manager stepped in and went beyond the call of duty to accommodate us... More

I stop at a lot of Applebee's in my travel because you can count on their food quality. I often get the Quesadilla Burger. I didn't think they could make them any better but the one on Hughes Rd sure has done it. More burger, cheese,sauce and seasoning I guess. If you haven't tried one you need to.. Trust me... More

Overall the visit was not the best we've had at this location previously but it was ok. The service was great. The server we had was very attentive and always made sure we had what we needed. Unfortunately the food was not as good as it should be compared to what we had previously. The taste on the bourbon street... More
