Dinner at the local Applebee's with my child after months of trying to get there. She loved their Mac'n cheese and I ordered their Oriental Salad which I was very pleasantly surprised with. It is definitely a keeper (but at a different location)! She ordered a Sunday for dessert, half way down we found a very long and very black... More

Do did not have a very nice dinner at this place. Upon arrival I waited a few minutes for the waiter to seat us. Then we waited so long for drinks, they finally brought out some waters and when we asked the bar tender why we where waiting so long for drinks she said it's because we didn't get carded.... More

In general, I believe restaurant management should give their staff some leeway in deciding when a 10-15% discount for extra long wait time is valid. The reason people chose curbside service is because they do not wish to be at the restaurant for a long time. I placed my order mentioning "dressing on the side." The staff who came out... More

We had watched our grandson's soccer game and decided to stop in and try dinner. My husband got a hamburger and thought it was very good. I got the fish and chips and it was excellent. The fish was not greasy at all. The place was clean and our server was very good. All in all, a good experience.

We arrived at about 1:40 pm. There were plenty of open tables. We were seated and waited almost 15 minutes until a waitress from another area who had been walking back and forth taking care of her section asked us if we had been waited on. Her name was Maria, and when we said no she immediately waited on us.... More

The waitress didn't inform me that the apple chutney was extra, or that the grilled vegetables were extra. She knew that I had not seen the sides on the menu to know prices. Plus, my grilled vegetables were barely cooked and hard. Food was over seasoned. Fried shrimp were hard to bite into. Waitress would reply with I don't know... More

Well my wife and I wanted a simple lunch date while we were out...... Gone to this location off an on but not so much for lunch. Ordered a special they had for 2 for $20 with an appetizer. The server was horrible. I'm blind and explained this but very little understanding. The wings and our appetizers came all at... More

Quality of food was to be expected. Excellent steak as always; but the broccoli was a bit undercooked/under-seasoned. The beer cheese pretzels were very good, the cheese was a bit salty but the hot honey mustard made up for it. The wife's strawberry shake was thick and decadent. I got a blackberry and Maker's Mark concoction which was very nice...... More

The menu was standard fare for Applebees. As always the food was great and the service was super. We got at the restaurant rater late and it was not very busy. So, we got to know our waiter real well. This was a second job for him as he was a big 18 wheeler instructor at a local transportation company.... More

We visited here during a recent stay in the area. We are two children and 4 adults. The server took our orders and after a longer than expected wait the server came out with a tray and started asking who had this and who had that? We all shook our heads no, not us! then she had two pasta orders... More
