My wife doesn't like Applebees, but insisted we go there anyway despite my urging otherwise. My wife proceeded to take FOREVER to order while our 3 and 5 year old grew restless.

Friendly waitstaff. Got a table in a timely fashion, despite a family of 6, and a busy time of evening. Great family friendly pub-grub style of food. Menu has something for everyone.

Late at night, in a snowstorm, we found this Applebee's slower in business than usual for an Applebee's. Good service, fully explained menu items by the waiter. Enjoyed the Pub Grub chicken item with quinoa. Music in the background was more mellow than others. Good food, good service.

I've eaten Applebee's almost everywhere. The service here was okay. I've had better. Other than that, it was like a typical Applebee's.

There were 5 of us and they treated us very well. The food was served hot and pretty quickly. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and we had a fun time.

Met with local relatives at Applebee's and found the service and food to be very good. Atmosphere allowed us to easily have good conversation for an extended period of time in the evening.

The service we received was excellent and all of my picky family's food choices were well met! Our waitress went above and beyond her waitressing and made our meal very enjoyable!
