my husband and I dropped in for dinner this past weekend with our 13 year old granddaughter and the three of us did enjoy our meal. okay, you must realize applebees is basically bar food/fast food.and they deliver on that premise..... we had a few appetizers - the mozzarella sticks, fried green beans and both were good. my granddaughter and I both had the chicken cesear salad and both of us finished the entire salad....our waiter was very attentive and pleasant. restaurant was clean.....we were there early so the noise level and crowds were minimal. service was timely.....I would say this is fine if you are looking for a quick, fast meal......or if you are with a group....it is basically not a place for a couple seeking a pleasant meal!
