This is a chain restaurant doing nothing to distinguish itself. And, as another reviewer said the food is "high calorie", everything seems to be soaked in butter or fat.

Drinks are expensive if you go off the menu ($7 for a shot of vodka), food is average and don't recommend ordering wine as they'll just bring you any hoping that you won't notice. My friend got white instead of read which was pretty obvious...

Had a dinner there, felt like a couple of levels above fast food. Good if you are looking for a quick , near the hotel, high calories meal.

Good Food no matter what you order I had the Chinese Chicken Salad all I can say is YUMMY! Great place to also go hang out with friends in the bar, Pina' Colada also YUMMY, and watch your favorite sports game, but the restaurant is a family one also.

First time at this Applebee's location but it was similar to others I have been too, generally good service and food. Price is a little higher at this location but consistent with the area.

The food is always delicious and hot. Service was very good and the wait staff was pleasant. Can get a little noisy at times, especially when there is a local team playing sports.
