My daughter took us out to lunch as a celebration for a family achievement and picked AppleBee's. Upon walking in no one greated us for over 5 mins. Standing there so long I noticed the "lunch in 12 mins or it's free advertisement". We did...More

Nice service and really good burgers. Really good value. Problem was the AC wasn't working well and it was very uncomfortable dinning experience. I wish they would have told us prior to being seated.

Ok food, good service, good drinks. Doe this not fir all Applebees? I got a steak on my last trip and WHAT DO THEY TENDERIZE WITH? Not good. Everything else was good but isn't the steak supposed to be the star?

Food was very good and the service was outstanding. The drink prices are a bit high for what you get (liquor) as compared to other places in the same area. It was a slow nite 7/4- everybody must've been celebrating elsewhere. We frequent this location...More
