I don't know that a review of the food is needed here. If you've been to Applebee's recently then you know what you are getting. If not, I do think it is among the healthier options from among its peer set. I've eaten dinner at the bar of this Applebee's at least a half dozen times while staying at... read more

This place is close to the hotel so we tried it. Have not been in the Applebee's for some time. Asked for a gluten free menu. They gave us a book on allergies that we had to navigate. Suggest they develop a set of dishes and a menu with nice pictures for gluten free. There were very few dishes available... More

I arrived at this restaurant at about 2 o'clock. It was not very busy. After being promptly seated by a pretty and friendly hostess, I sat at my table for some time watching others come in after me and get waited on while I waited for a waitress. I was shocked watching 2 waitresses stand in the back looking out... More
