My friends and I visit Applebees a few times a month. Even though we don't drink, we like to sit in the bar area, we've found there's better service and like the atmosphere better. They have a good variety of food on their menu. We usually go during happy hour (after 9pm) and get our appetizers half price. Our favorites are the pretzels w/beer cheese, potato twisters and wonton tacos. They also have a brownie bite that is only $1! It's a small brownie with a scoop of ice cream, the perfect size to follow a meal. The last time we went there were 8 of us and we sat in the regular dining area. Our waiter was okay, kind of grumpy though. He told us we had to buy a drink to get the 1/2 price appetizers, which we've never been told before AND it didn't say that on the special appetizer card. The food was good and we still had fun, but I will request we wait to sit in the bar area next time, that seems to be where the more fun waiter/waitresses work.
