It's Applebee's. It's not delicious. It's decent. It's the same all over the country. The beer selection isn't great. The food is pretty good.

It is hard to go wrong with an Applebee's in any town. The food was good, menu varied and catering to most tastes and diets it seems. Service was good, prompt and friendly...what more can you ask for?

We went late for dinner and got great food, great service and great atmosphere. All the servers were fun and helpful. We mixed together some appetizers and had a great late night snack!
