Took my darling Sister to Sunday lunch and to check out the new menu. The menu is quite expansive but sometimes confusing. There is a lot of "pick this and then pick two sides to go with that". We finally figured it out. She had the grilled salmon and I had the baby back ribs. We both thought the food... More

We stopped for a late lunch/early dinner. The food was tasty but we ordered salad and appetizer combos, from the pages in the menus that clearly showed what we were ordering. The spicy shrimp appetizer was yummy and the wedge lettuce salad was good too. I recommend you check your bill to be sure you got charged correctly.

This is a chain restaurant and I didn't expect too much but the food was very good and the service was excellent.

We frequent this one because of good friendly staff and consistently good food. My wife loves their ribs and I esp like their french onion soup. Sirloins are not the greatest, but Hamburgers are great.

Great place to take your family and for couples. Monday is any hamburger for $6.99, Tuesday is child's meal free with each adult entree, Wednesday is $1.99 Margaritas. Try it you'll like it. The menu has a very good selection of chicken, steaks, great salads and salmon.

I was somewhat disappointed with the wait time, although it was on a Friday evening. The made at the table appetizer was average, the flatbread was tasty, but the moscato was excellent.

I stopped for a quick bite on my way to a meeting. I ordered a cheeseburger at the bar as there was no one seating customers. The menu said pink or not pink. I ordered the hamburger PINK. It came out gray. The service was not spectacular but adequate. I won't stop here again. There must be better places to... More

The food is Applebees, and I can't complain about it. But the wait staff and management are terrible. Been here several times and it is always the same.

Consistent quality and friendly staff make this location a favorable stop. Food met or exceeded my expectations, TV's made me happy to not miss a game while dining.

The food came out on time, it was prepared as requested, and it was hot. The service was decent, as was the price. I'll probably pass if in the area again, there are better local places around.
