Everyone in our party seemed happy with their food too. I also like the chicken oriental salad; I did not get it that particular day; however,... More

What a wonderful restaurant. We were sorted promptly. Our waitress was amazing. She was energetic and engaging. Our drinks and food were provided promptly and accurately. She returned at exactly the right moments to see how our meal was going and to ensure our enjoyment of the repays. We had the ribs and they were delectable. I'll be back Applebys!

I'm not usually an Applebee's fan, but had a good meal at this restaurant. The service was fantastic and food was better than expected from a chain restaurant.

I planned this little dinner party for my mother weeks ahead and decided to call Applebee's to reserve a spot for 15 family members. Staff was wonderful on the phone and very professional. I even called to say we would be arriving later. We arrived and were greeted and seated with a smile. Everyone in my family enjoyed the staff... More
