When at a conference at the Hilton this is a great alternative to The restaurants on the lake which can be crowded with Hilton Charlotte guests and others. Applebees has a familiar menu, meals are prepared after you arrive but in a timely manner. You...More

It's Applebee's. It's the epitome of an American chain restaurant, if that makes any sense at all. It had been several years since I had visited an Applebee's, and I didn't have much desire to return. We actually only ate here because of a long-time...More
