Convenient to I-90 when traveling and plentiful parking. Standardized Applebee's menu, but there is something for everyone here, and pricing is reasonable.

Stopped her for lunch on our way through Albany on way to Boston. Food was the usual Applebee's fare which to be expected. Our server was Tabatha which was a real treat. She seems to enjoy her work and made our visit special.

The waitstaff is great. To bad they have to deal with terrible food. GF and I came here, as we USE to do on occasion. Sort of our halfway meeting point. Typically we will pick higher end restaurants but today we decided to go back to where we use to meet. I warned her about the sirloin. I learned, from... More

In general, Applebee's has good food but there always seem to be issues and you aren't necessarily going to get what you expect. My wife and I ordered the same salad, but her's was considered a "side" while mine was considered to be "off the menu" so it was three times the size of hers and was extra (not explained... More

We came here for someplace familiar while here for a work conference. The staff were friendly. The Bourbon Street steaks that we got were small and cut into 2 smaller pieces - not the presentation I remembered from other locations. The side of fries was a small portion. We also got disappointing martinis from the bar -- a martini should... More

Came for lunch and ordered lunch special. Food was okay but service was very slow. Server said there was no manager on duty and that the kitchen was very backed up, Restaurant not very crowded so likely management problems.

We ordered take out, service was great. Food not so. My husbands burger was so over cooked it was like shoe leather, his bun was burnt, one piece of onion. The fries were so rubbery, you could tell they were reheated.

Good selection of foods. Nice décor, only concern is very noisy in there. Always a wait, so come prepared to sit for awhile.

Thankfully, Applebee's stays open late on weekdays. Within our week's vacation, we went to this Applebee's, as well as the one in Latham. Both times, our food was good, as was our service. There's always plenty to choose from on the menu, and it's nice to not have to worry about trial and error when dealing with a chain restaurant.

Only my second time at an Applebee's. The first time, at a different location, was very nice. Blackened shrimp & broccoli cavatappi, berry sangria, cafe Nelson, all just ok. Brownie dessert was good. Service was prompt and friendly. Would suggest making the trip to a Chili's for similar chain restaurant food.

Thank SqueakFro
