Excellent service and one of the best time I had in a while. Also would like to thank Nicole Pharro who at the time was my server. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with everything. My wife and I would recommend Nicole as a server. She truly is the best.

This is one of the places you can go to eat and know you will not be sorry that you went to eat there, it's not something that you can run down the street and tell everybody you see to go and eat there but you will not be unhappy that you did eat there

We decided to try our local Applebee's and we weren't disappointed. We sat at the bar and our bartender was very nice and attentive. We had the Mushroom Swiss Burger which was cooked perfectly and we also had the Fiesta Chicken Salad which was quite a nice portion.

Halloween at applebees was fun. our server christen dressed as capt America, she was very good at her job. my 12ounce filet was very tough and did not melt when cut. the sides of green beans and baked potato were fine.

We went to Applebee's for lunch, and enjoyed it. We both chose from the lunch pairings menu. The choices are smaller portioned, and the server was very accommodating.

You are not going to expect a fine dining experience in Applebees. It is a standard product delivered in quickly and efficiently.

There are a lot of Applebees locations, so when we travel, we tend to look for them on the road because we know it's going to fill our needs. No guesswork. There are usually some kind of specials for two to dine, which works out for my wife and I, since we usually travel together. Nice dessert choices.
