I've dined here a number of times throughout the year. Applebee's is conveniently located in the Fashion Outlets Mall, and for that reason, it is busy! If you are planning on going on any weekends, Black Friday, Christmas, this restaurant will be at capacity with a lineup at the entrance with little space for waiting, unless the bar is quieter. The restaurant will not be at its peak efficiency at such times, resulting in slow service, as most restaurants are in like situations. Parking is also challenging to find at these times. The restaurant is a bar and grill, with a "Cheers" style U-shaped full bar concentrated in the centre, flanked by many tables and booths on all sides. The food options are quite varied, and they do offer a lighter healthier menu (i.e. Weight Watchers). I particularly recommend the Buffalo boneless chicken with Buffalo sauce (if you like spicy; although milder sauces are offered) and the Oriental salad is tasty here too with chicken and available in half size. Their menu features a kid's menu. The décor of the restaurant pays homage to the many local soldiers who fought in Afghanistan, sports teams in the Toronto-Buffalo area, as well as local Western New York junior teams, all lending it a homey feel. The dining room/bar is tidy and prices are quite reasonable. *The restroom, however, could be kept more clean and stocked with supplies (soap) as of my last visit. They are handicapped accessible. If you are coming with a handicapped person or someone that cannot negotiate steps easily, I would call ahead for a reservation citing this reason. My server was friendly and reasonably attentive. The restaurant was 3/4 full. Appropriate attire would be casual as you might well expect to see a typical shopper wearing. Opens at 11am daily and closes at 12am, except Saturday at 1am. Take out service is offered on phone-in orders. Credit cards are accepted. I recommend the restaurant for casual dining, but more frequent and stringent checks on restroom cleanliness are required. Note to Canadian visitors: Canadian currency is also accepted, but with a nominal premium charged.
