This is right across from Marist campus. We were there for lunch. It's nothing special, like another reviewer said, just your normal Applebees and what you would expect. The trainer who was teaching the new guy how to be a server was kooky, which made for some fun entertainment. He definitely is in the right business, walking around talking to people. What a ham.

Poughkeepsie? Good. Fishkill location is awful! The Poughkeepsie location is really good! Food is excellent! Wait staff is on the ball and doing their jobs for the most part. However the Fishkill location needs to be completely renovated as in the staff at the top! So we'll just keep this to Poughkeepise and say it's very good! Just don't go to Fishkill Appleby's.

We went with our parents (in their 70s) and three of us in our 50s. It was a typical Applebees -- good food. Nice menu there -- several Weight Watchers specific meals that my mom liked. Waitress was fine, not great. Overall fine experience!

This is another place that can't decide if they want to be a bar or a restaurant. Too much noise. We were seated and then decided it was just too much, and left. People have no sense of noisiness anymore, I guess.

When we first entered this Applebee's, there appeared to be quite a few empty booths, which we requested. The hosts commenced with some sort of apology that they could sit us in a particular section but because the server had just seated 4 other tables, we might have a bit of a wait. It didn't make too much sense, and I suggested that it sounded as if they were understaffed. They heartily disagreed, and we consented to be seated, acknowledging that we might have to wait. Fortunately the wait staff saw to it that our wait was not long at all. One of the hosts took our drink order, and another server took our dinner order soon thereafter. The manager stopped by to see if we were content. All were very apologetic. The Caesar salad with steak was quite good. I was glad to see that option on the menu. Most restaurants offer to add grilled chicken, and sometimes grilled shrimp, but few offer steak which I find to be a great addition to a standard Caesar salad. The reuben sandwich was tender and flavorful. It came with pretty good fries, although they were a bit too salty. All of the prices on the menu seemed quite reasonable, even the more elaborate dishes. We look forward to returning.
