This Applebee's is no different from any other Applebee's, with some menu items great, others not so great. Much of their food is too salty, but their New England Clam Chowder was delicious (it was the soup of the day). We went on a Friday, and the place was crowded with elderly patrons. And the darn restaurant only has three... More

I admit it; I tend to downgrade casual dining chains. I am not French nor European; for some reason most of the casual dining places taste the same. But this Applebee's was great. This area was dealt some blows by Hurricane Sandy but the place appears resilient and determined. The service was top notch and the food was quite tasty,... More

The three of us went to lunch at Applebee's. We all ordered the new French Onion soup. It was hot and delicious. Perfect for a cold winter afternoon. My better half and I ordered the boneless buffalo classic wings. They were moist and spicy but not too spicy. The blue cheese dressing could have been a little more generous but... More

Great food! Friendly, courteous and attentive staff. Our food was hot and tasty. We go here a lot and have always been satisfied. They also honor Veterans!

I have seen the ads for their 2 for $20 many times and wanted to give this a try and was glad I did. We started off with a choice if appetizers and went with the spinach, artichoke and cheese dip. This was very tasty and a nice portion of fresh hot tortilla chips came with it. Next our choice... More

I am not a fan of Applebee's or Friendly's. Having said that, “any port in a storm”. We hadn't eaten most of the day and stopped there after missing a turn to Olive Garden. We spent over $60 for an appetizer, a grease soaked hamburger, and a Chicken something dinner. The waitress was very good however. You get what you... More

The food is always fresh and reasonably priced. They have the best wait staff in the area. Friendly, efficient without being overbearing. Frequently visit the Rt 72 Manahawkin restaurant.
