Sports atmosphere, and different weekly specials tied to the games. Food is good, the spinach/artichoke dip in appetizers was OUTSTANDING! Had that as part of the sampler, will know to get that in future! Husband has done the broccoli/cheese soup a couple of times and...More

Went to Applebee's because we received gift cards for Christmas. The portion sizes for the sides of fries were tiny. I got the ribs and they were OK. Our waiter was fantastic and on top of things.
