“Sangria & Spice”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Service was quite good. We both had the bourbon based meals and they were tasty but quite spicy. Still the meals were cooked nicely, were not dry or anything. Enjoyed the berry-based sangria!

“Appetizers good, main dishes not so good”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We go to State College applebees for appetizers usually. Their main dishes are not so good for some reason. Other applebess in the country are good, but not this one. I don't know why. But the deal with half price appetizers after 9 pm is the best thing about this place! It's open till 1 am on fridays.

“Good food and friendly service”
Reviewed July 26, 2012 via mobile

The fact that sometimes you have to wait to be seated because the place is full indicates people like the place. Good variety of food and friendly staff. Full bar service.

“One word...awfull”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

This restaurant in particular, and the chain in general is bad. You're better off almost anywhere else. Look at the new on the web, almost all their food is prepared and they merely microwave it in the back. The only chain that is clearly worse is the waffle house/huddle house. How do these places stay in business?
