Bartender kept guests in check. Service in bar was much better. We were sitting at a booth behind 2 toddlers so we moved to a bar table. Hostess should pay attention to couples vs. families and table accordingly. Food was hot & fresh. Got the molten chocolate cake to go. It was delicious!

The Applebee's chain continues to rate the lowest of all the restaurants I frequent. This one was a last choice for lunch and lived up to my intense dislike. Three in our party are gluten free.

Had a quick lunch there and was very disappointed. Food is okay but not a lot of attention to food presentation put into the plates. Also, weird combinations. I've never had mac & cheese with fried chicken fingers on the top. Kind of a weird combo. Club sandwich had soggy bread in the bottom. Will not return.

This is an Applebee's restaurant so unless you've been under a rock you pretty much know what you are in for. This is pretty true to form but the atmosphere is pretty flat. The staff seems tired but pleasant. Perhaps they are cold because we were stuck under a really cold draft of an undetermined origin. The food was okay.

A decent spot for lunch. Not an exceptional supper place but all right. A very American restaurant, kids will enjoy.

Visited this location with a group and the food came out hot, fast, tasty. Conpliments to the chef. The server was amazing. The manager was fantastic. He greeted the tables and helped the staff. Wow. Talk about leadership. You could tell that the staff was happy. I would visit this location again especially for groups.

Same menu as always. Easy to get a seat, reasonable prices, decent service. We did not go away overly impressed but then, we had no complaints.

It's Thursday night, we ordered 2 kids meals and a steak. It's been over an hour and the place is almost empty. I now see why it's empty!
