my brother, nephew and myself went on a night out and we decided to go here for a not-so-late dinner/snack. the margarita served was great. i loved the salad i ordered and the serving was generous. will definitely go back and try their other dishes next time i'm in town.

I almost always order their french onion soup! It has been one of my favorites for years. The last 2 times I was there it was not as good, I had to send it back it tasted like chemicals were in it and even last night it had a mild taste of chemicals so disappointed. We ordered a sample appetizer... More

2 hungry, jet lagged diners... Warm welcome and smiles from the staff...sounds so easy but often missing. Help choosing beers, really surprized by the broad menu choice, same for the food. Wonderful shrimp, pretzel and egg roll entrees. Spicey mexican beef sandwich and beautifully juicey, fresh ground burger. 2 smiling, very full men have left the building. Recommended.

First time back after a year and the service and quality of the food was still very good. Promptly greeted and seated with an attentive and friendly waitress. We ordered fried mozzarella sticks and hot wings which were very tasty, before our main entrees of citrus chicken and the chicken mac and cheese. Both main dishes were attractively plated and...

We ate at this Applebee's last year and decided to eat there again . On entering the restaurant we were welcomed by a friendly, smiling member of staff. She chatted to us and asked if we were on holiday and where we had travelled from. When she led us to our table it was where we had eaten our meal... More

Quick stop to have a bite to eat and cold beer after a long day at Comic Con. Server was excellent, very attentive I think his name was Dan or something (sorry). Food is the same quality as every other Applebee's.

My wife and I always like eating at Applebee's because we know what we are getting. We like to try new places but sometimes we just want something we know we're gonna love.
