Typical chain restaurant

Service was good. Meals were hot. Selection was typical. And it was the only restaurant within walking distance of our hotel

Friday night is our favorite time to visit this restaurant. This Applebee's has the best staff in Ocean Co. Selections are ever changing and always great. Can't say enough about this Applebee's

From the sense of humor in greeting us at the door to the smiling and VERY courteous waitress to the prompt and pleasant people delivering the food - this Allplebee's wins our award for Best in Class.

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.
