Yes its a chain, but its a good one. Everything we have tried over the years has always been full of flavor. This place is clean and the wait time has never been an issue.

Busy as heck but our wait was not too long and the service and food were very good. It's a bit loud for my taste but my husband says the nachos are worth it!

Applebees has always been very consistent. Our meal was good. Our server did not spend any time. WE received the wrong salads and he just dropped them oof and walked away so quickly. it was kind of weird. We would start to say something and he was gone. But the food was good.

Party of 5 for dinner. Great service. Staff was very attentive. Very clean, including the bathroom. Meals were hot and delicious. Chicken, lime fajita wrap was yummy- had a bite of my sisters. I had the Mac and cheese with honey chicken- amazing. Will definitely have that again.

I've had good experiences here and some not so good, probably more not so good ones. Most of the time I have had pretty good service but more often than not the food isn't up to par, especially for the price, and management isn't as good as the servers. I've gone in for a certain item and it's no longer... More

This is Applebees just like any other. The servers are nice and the place is clean. I do like their French Onion soup.

Had no trouble getting a seat, server was very attentive and the food was fine. Tired and hungry this was a welcome stopover.
