Excellent service and one of the best time I had in a while. Also would like to thank Nicole Pharro who at the time was my server. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with everything. My wife and I would recommend Nicole as a server. She truly is the best.

We went to Applebee's for lunch, and enjoyed it. We both chose from the lunch pairings menu. The choices are smaller portioned, and the server was very accommodating.

You are not going to expect a fine dining experience in Applebees. It is a standard product delivered in quickly and efficiently.
