Applebee's is a favorite with us, and it is always good. We were there this week again, our server was quick and efficient and very pleasant, and the food was delicious. My husband had the fried fish this time, and I had one of their...More

Being located nearby a few hotels (near I-81), this restaurant is very convenient if you don't want to travel far to enjoy a good meal at the end of a day's travel. The food is very good and the staff is very courteous and friendly....More

We enjoy Applebee's, although when the SUNY Cortland students are in town, it's important to get there early or late -- arrival between 5:15 and 6:15 almost guarantees a wait. So we went early. I had the pecan crusted chicken salad, and it's a favorite...More

Stopped here for dinner on our way back from the NY State Fair. We all had the 2 for $25 offer and enjoyed our meal. Very friendly staff.
