It’s been 12 years since I’ve been to this Applebee’s, and I can report that not much has changed except the bartenders. I sat at the bar and had the French Onion soup with the 6 oz sirloin dinner.

After a few trips here, we just drive past now. The food is nothing special, and of course it is always loud. It has probably been a year since we were there, because our out of town friends suggested it.

This is the local Applebees if you live along Saratoga. They have stuff on the wall from Mitty, Prospect, etc. Thus us great for families. You can't go with the selection - and the kids meals are really good. Granted, you don't come here fir healthy food, but their salmon dish is great, the salads are yummy (Oriental grilled chicken...
