We always sit at bar. Service is almost always great there. For some reason their Blue Moon taste so much better than other places. Food is tasty. Three cheese penne is wonderful.

This Applebee's location is one of the worst I have been to. It lacks quality and it's just not that good. If you want a decent Applebee's go to the Middletown location.

As far as I'm concerned the best thing about Applebee's is their tomato basil soup...although it's $4.99 for a carry out serving that is very small. Some of their food I like very much, like some of the chicken dishes. The Spinach Artichoke Dip is Bland, producing very little flavor. The Bier Cheese with Pretzels is flavorful and good. The...

Love a place where the bar tenders are social able with their customers, as well as serve them with a constant smile! The food is always great, but the service is what makes the place!! Keep up the awesome work!
