    The neighborhood pub is here!  Great bar, great drinks, great appetizers and the people at Applebee's put a great deal into making their menu different than other restaurants.  Plenty of variety from Southwestern, to BBQ, to American steakhouse fare.  Be sure to try the riblets, this is the best Applebees offers, coupled with some fries and garlic bread.  Service is generally fair, although you can be seated with a waiter/waitress that is a little out there and tends to forget.  The atmosphere is comfortable and the restaurant is moderately clean and that varies greatly by location and management.  There are some great Applebee’s locations out there, but with the wrong management, everything can be great or way below standards.  Applebee’s has changed management groups several times and is now aimed for success.  Some older locations are being updated and the advertising and logos have been updated to reflect the times. www.applebees.com
