It's an Applebee's, what more needs to be said. The staff was all very friendly. The drink I ordered had VERY little liquor in it. The manager stopped by randomly to check on our visit.

I have a Son with Gluten allergies, they provided options for him after the limited fare of an amusement park. Open late for park goers, great service, they ran out of iced tea after 10:00 pm though.

Set at the bar and was greeted promptly, took my drink order and had it for me before I expected it. Ordered boneless wings and they were excellent. Bartender didn't ignore me but didn't hover over me either. Was a great visit to... More

My girlfriend where staying at the Sleep Inn while visiting Cedar Point, about ten minutes from this resaurant. This particular Applebee's had an additional indoor and mostly outdoor bar area called the "hive" which I haven't seen before, as we are from Rhode Island. It was very nicely decorated with an outdoor fire pit! We ordered apps, boneless buffalo wings... More
