Applebee's has rather high standards, and Oak Harbor exceeds them on all counts. The hostess greeted us with a friendly smile and quickly seated us. The server seemed like she really enjoyed her job. She was attentive without being overbearing and very knowledgeable about items on the menu. Drinks were refilled very quickly. The food was fresh, hot, and delicious. The portions were rather generous. Other reviewers have complained about the noise level. Perhaps they visited in the evening when the bar was busier. We visited for lunch, and the TV's were all muted with closed captioning activated. We were able to carry on a conversation with normal voices. If you're on Whidbey Island, do yourself a favour and visit this lovely restaurant.
