    I've seen them but never eaten in one

    www.applebees.com

    Looks like casual family dining.

    the one we used to go to was fine in south carolina, i wonder if the quality is different in different places like some other chains.

    It's gotten better lately than it used to be. I like their Oriental chicken salad and the brushetta burger.

    I was in the one on the US27 by the Publix last week and sat at the bar and had a couple of beers and some food, it was nicer than sitting at a table as i was on my own but i do recomend it. Out of choice i would go to Applebees rather than Chilis

    Applebee's is a relatively inexpensive family dining establishment. I went to my first one ever while I was on a business trip to San Antonio Texas a several years ago. Now we have one just down the street from the house that we frequent whenever we want to just go out and have a bite to eat without having to drive too far.

    Applebee's is in the same category as TGI Friday's, Bennigan's, Hoolihan's, TGI Friday's... fast food in a table service setting. I don't care for it, but I don't like any of those places really.

    For the cost I'd rather go to Publix and get a rotisserie chicken, baguette, and brie with a bottle of wine, I have a nice dinner. Personal taste, eh?

    All that said, they sort of think of themselves as a "local" pub or tavern and usually have a good portion of the place plastered with local high school stuff, sport uniforms, yearbooks etc. You get a look at the local story when you visit the national chain, oh yeah, food is ok...nothing to write home about.
