I have avoided the Applebee's here for some time but my wife called and her client wanted to meet there for lunch so she asked me to join then. I was very surprised at how well we were taken care of, the new menu items were also very good. I had soup and a chicken wrap which was delicious, I... More

We ordered 2 cheeseburgers from the dinner menu. I added mustard to mine"which you can usually taste on anything" and the burger came out dripping in grease. All I could taste WAS the grease! We both ended up being sick a few hours later at home. Yep, the grease! My husband ordered the 12 oz steak and it took forever... More

If you go hungry or in a hurry, you better go somewhere else. It takes a long timeto get your food. . . .

We had decent food and a very nice waitress. The place was clean and the food was delivered promptly. I would go there again.

My crew wanted to order steaks and they said they were out of the 12 Oz. Because they only have so many steaks a day cut. So I asked them to prepare 2 6oz steaks a piece for them but the manager said he couldn't allow that. So hard to get your glass of tea refilled also. Won't be back

We stayed away because on our last 2 visits the service was awful. NO improvement. With such limited options in the area they can get away with making people wait, for their water, to have their order taken and for their food. Food was okay but other than salads no vegetarian options.

After not visiting for a few years I decided to give it a try again. The water still tastes like algae or dirt. I told the waitress no lemon and each time she brought more water she piled more and more lemons on. I am allergic to lemons. We were at our table for 14 minutes before she even came... More
