All Applebees are somewhat similar. Although this one lacks in several areas, including service. I had this blonde server, I believe her name was Julia, Julie something like that. (Or I could be completely off) although I'm not too sure. She took 10 minutes to get to our table. We asked for waters with lemon. Another 10 minutes later, water... More

Just down the road from the movies, we stopped for dinner. We have visited Applebee's before, only our second time here. Empty on a Wed evening, fast service, quick drink service (beer and wine), food came quick too. Plain cheeseburger, the wife got it loaded. Great burger, good fries. They checked to make sure we're fine. Great meal, nice place,... More

We wanted a nice meal to culminate our trip to New jersey. Applebee's did it. We were all satisfied with our choices. Loved the soup. Regretted that only my husband had ordered it. Do not even remember the name of the soup, but I know it was some kind of beans. Shared my husband's. The main course was good. But... More

Been to many Applebees across NJ and the country. They all have good food and drinks. This Applebees is right around the corner from my home so I go there whenever my kids or friends want. I always try t get something different each time and they never disappoint. It's always fun at Applebees.

We went there a couple of times last month because we wanted a quick meal close to home. They have added some new dishes to the menu which are healthier low calorie meals. I have tried 2 of them, the sliced steak and the grilled chicken. They are served with a mixture of grains and vegetables. They are both pretty... More

We eat here once in a while because it's close to my place but not my favorite restaurant the reason sometimes they serve good foods sometimes they serve average or below average meaning if not overcooked it's not hot.

I went to lunch here with a few of my friends. They wanted to go here because one of them had a young child and wanted kid friendly options. At noon during a weekday, it wasn't very busy. The lunch combos were a good deal, and average food. You can get a 1/2 salad, soup wrap, lunch entree, etc. and... More
