Its seems more and more people are craving this "expensive fast food " ...its packed with famlys and couples . We make our way to the bar ..to be seated so we don't have to wait a half and hour . The noise level of the music is a little load but keeps me distracted from all of the load... More

We were in the area of this Applebee's and decided to give it a try. Our last experience was with the one on Grant Road and it was bad. What the difference was between the two places, was this one had excellent service, excellent food and never had to ask our server for drink refills. She took care of us... More

The wife and I went there on a Saturday night to find it relaxing and pleasant. I had the chicken salad and she had the lime chicken. Both were good but the lime chicken was a step better. I ordered a margarita, but had it returned for being just too sweet to my taste. Service was very good and the... More

My husband really enjoyed his sirloin steak and big baked potato. I had the Cajun chicken. Good, but a little on the salty side. Our server was wonderful. Our meal came very hot, which we liked. It was happy hour so we had the 1/2 price onion rings which were delicious.

They will always have great varieties of margaritas! And the overall food presentation is still pub-competitive. Burgers/sandwiches/salads--all OK, But this location is due to re-invent itself! Long-time provider of good F&B---but starting to feel like an aging "chain" restaurant.

Not a great experience. Menu has changed and the choice is not as good as it was. When the burgers arrived they were rather undercooked and not tasty. We sent them back and the second try was a bit better but not tasty.

Having been to other Applebee's, we expected a lot better than we got. Food was OK only, but the service was BAD. Was never asked for a iced tea refill until WE asked, dishes not removed until we were about to leave, and waitress was very slow. I am tired of having the charge for iced tea and coffee go... More

We picked this Applebees en route to the mall. It was a Nice choice. The restaurant room is cosy. The food tastes good. We had a choice of chicken fingers, macaroni cheese and beef nachos. The blue moon is great. The waitress was Nice but à little bit slow.

If you like watching the TV and eating - this is your spot. The ribs are okay and the fish and chips - the noise is loud at times, the wait to get seated LONG, the wait for the food LONG. Just not my favorite of franchised places to eat. Do like the higher stools to sit. Sometimes they burn... More
