"The food was hot and delicious. The waiter was exceptional! However, the area of the restaurant where we sat was hot. It had been a hot day in the 80's. The area we sat had broken blinds and seemed in need of a minor renovation. This was once a vibrant place and the 1st Applebee's in the area where everybody wanted to go and meet. Please show our visitors from the hotels and surrounding areas, we are proud as owners and to serve them."
"We were a group of 6 with one toddler...Very poor service... waited more than 30 minutes for our food and the restaurant was no where near crowded, 10-15 people MAYBE. One of our group didn't get her meal until the rest of us were almost finished eating AND when they finally brought her meal it wasn't fixed the way she explicitly asked. We were overcharged for our meals and one of the members of our group had to go get his change... the waitress didn't bring it back to him. I haven't been very impressed with Applebee's in the recent past but now know that I/we will not forget this very bad experience and I'm sure that none of us will visit this restaurant again. "
"Violet was an excellent server! Just the right balance of attentivenrss. The resturaunt was clean and pleasant. Food was excellent! 5 star visit!"
"Went to eat here for lunch today. We got 2 appetizers to start with and the plates they brought us were dirty. They brought us 4 plates and the top one was clean, the other 3 were disgusting with a bunch of hard dried up food on them. It was very disturbing. My husband wanted a salad and they didn't even have French dressing. Definitely will not go back. The only plus about our experience was the waitress was friendly and she constantly kept our drinks full. That was the only positive thing about this place."
"Really great service. We had a large party, separate checks, and many questions. It was a very high quality Applebee's experience."

"Normally sit downs aren't a problem, but did a take out today and the food and service was poor at best. Had planned to order a double appetizer but they were sold out of one that I wanted. The barista did not apologize for the inconvenience. Second choice was not available so opted for a burger and fries. The meat was tasteless, the bun was charcoal and unedible. The fries had too much pepper, not enough salt, and we're too dry to eat. I will not be using this option again."
"Right now 3 stars is being generous to a fault. I guess late Sunday evenings isn't the best time to come this restaurant."
"Waitress was very attentive good taste good...but not consistent with food in cooking or servings."
"Very pleasant. Food was as we ordered and our server was great. Very enjoyable."
"After looking through the menu that seems to change daily it took forever to be served. And this was at 3:00 in the afternoon in an empty restaurant. When the food finally did come everything that had been deep fried was burnt to a crisp. Remember the mid 2000's when Applebee's was good... :-["

"Great people and great service! Always have a great experience when going here and it has quickly become my families favorite spot for sports and food. Crista, Jade, Veronica and Tina are always helpful and take care of us. Always keep your glass full and service with a smile. Keep doing what you are doing!"
"It has been years since I have been in this Applebee's because of bad service and food, but I thought I would give them another shot.
Service was slow, the restaurant was nearly empty (5 tables full, 3 servers on duty and the manager running around) but it took several minutes for anyone to acknowledge us let alone seat us. The server was nice but also slow, and didn't seem to have much knowledge about the menu, although she had been there a while. (she said)
I got mozzarella sticks.. asked for ranch.. the mozzerella sticks were cold before she brought out the ranch, and my drink was more fizz than Dr. Pepper.
I ended up ordering to go since I was on my lunch hour and it was going slow.. a simple Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad and requested they add tomato. I got no plastic ware, burnt chicken, ranch dressing and no tomatoes.
The manager was interactive with the floor and was nice so I will give them that. But I will not be returning. There have been too many issues with this place, last time I had a piece of melted PLASTIC on my steak... New staff and new management have neither helped nor hurt this place. You can't fix crap."
"Sat for 30 minutes looking for our waiter. He saw us looking and came over to tell us he forgot to put our order in. Grand daughter was fussing because she was SO hungry. Talked to manager and she acted like she didn't care. After a year of not going to Applebees we thought we would try it. Sorry excuse for a restaurant. Management and wait staff SUCK"
"Order the riblets all you can eat they were so tough that I could not chew them off the bone told the waiter about this he said what I like to order something else I did and he still charge me for the all you can eat riblets even though I did not eat them. I said what was wrong with the riblets he said sorry they wasn't what I remembered them to be and I said I eat riblets all the time from Applebee's they're supposed to come off the bone easily. I paid the bill did not try to get anything for free even the riblets I did not order I paid for I did not complain to anyone manager anything cuz I figured it would do no good. Waiter act like he had no care what I had to say"
"Love the new Express lunch menu! Was able to get in and out for lunch and even had extra time to enjoy dessert before heading to my job! Food was great and my waitress, Robin, was super sweet and attentive!"
