We stopped here late on a Monday night while staying the night on our way home to Georgia. Restaurant was clean and fairly quiet. Our server, Tyla, was AWESOME. She was friendly and very knowledgeable of the menu. I had chicken caprese and my husband had chicken and shrimp. Both were very tasty.

Grabbed a really late meal and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and the meal was too. I had the fiesta lime chicken and girlfriend had the fried shrimp platter.

I don't know why I don't think of Applebees more often, as I always enjoy my salads there. The staff here was very friendly and helpful, and it really hit the spot after a day on the road.

The menu is very limited for vegetarians but the bartender was an absolute idiot! She actually put my tequila on ICE. When I complained, she simply dumped out the ice and handed me the watered down $8 a shot tequila!
