Stopped by with another adult. Ordered Chicken-Tenders, Whiskey-Chicken&Shrimp. All the food was very disappointing. Friend thought the chicken tenders were from Popeye's. I tasted one and thought the same. No rolls or bread sticks. No desserts or alcoholic beverages. Total bill over $70!

They were super nice and we only had to wait 5 minutes to get a table. It was our grandsons 1 birthday so we decided to come to Applebee's. The food was great just like the service we got.
