There might be a trend in sit-down chain restaurant closings. First the Applebee's in Paso Robles announced in April that they were closing. Suddenly the Applebee's on Madonna Road posted a sign in May that they were closed. But the Wild Wings bar next door...More

Applebee's has good food and enthusiastic staff. We were late and not very hungry anymore. So we chose light dishes and this turned out to be a great choice. I love their beers, had a good IPA.

Dinner of the Oriental Chicken salad needs more greens and less noodles. Drinks are what this place revolves around. They do a good job. Service was good as it was late and few patrons.

Ordered a meal at the bar with Trevor and the food was delivered promptly. The Cedar Grilled Salmon was good along with the fresh vegetables. The salmon was prepared on a bed of spinach.

Excellent food and service, venue suitable for kids and you could hire an electronic quiz tablet for them for $2US. Hope this chain of restuarants is in other places we are touring because we will defnitely be back.

We stopped in for dinner while in San Luis Obispo. I feel its better than the one in Paso Robles. I like the two for 25.00 we both get salad. I usually get the bourbon shrimp and chicken with mushrooms and onions. It was very...More

We had dinner here and the food was really good! It was within walking distance from our motel and after driving for four hours it was nice to have a good late dinner and a walk back to motel.
