I love Applebee’s for their selections. The offer a wide variety of options and a full bar as well. My favorite salad is the Chinese Chicken Salad. It is amazing and a perfect blend of all of the perfect salad options.

We have been to many Applebee's nationwide, and this is still one of our favorites. Their service is outstanding, and the food is never a disappointment no matter what you decide to try.

We arrived for lunch and the place was busy but not crowded. Wait staff was friendly and timely. We ordered our drinks and food and everything arrived correctly. Typical medium priced restaurant but very clean and well organized
