I have went in several times and they were either under or overstaffed. The food is average quality. I had a calzone a few times and the pasta bake and it was good. Just by observing it appears there seems to be a lack of management and direction... I am one of those people watchers lol. The atmosphere is good.... More

stopped there for dinner since it is next door to the Motorcycle museum. The service was slow and it took us about 25 minutes for the food to be ready even though they weren't that busy. We ordered 2 grilled chicken wraps and the hot beef dinner. The wraps were tasty but the beef dinner was 2 small pieces of... More

Service was nice. Dining was average w/very limited wine availability. McOtto's had a television in the bar, which made it nice to watch a Yankee game.

My wife and I have eaten here many times and it seems the restaurant is heading in the wrong direction. The food is still pretty good but there are a lot of discrepancy in the quality and quantity of food and service. This restaurant seems to have a high turn of employees which is why all of the variances. The... More

Was promptly seated in a booth, seating is booths & tables. In the facility's center is a u-shaped bar. Coral, my server, allowed me plenty of time to select the BBQ Burger, which... More

I had read some questionable reviews of this restaurant, but we decided to give it a try and were very happy with our visit! Our waitress was very friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. The food we ordered was well-prepared, flavorful and the portions were large. I spoke with the manager after our meal to compliment her, and in speaking... More

This seemed obvious to me that it was at one time, yes an Applebee's just by the way it is set up. The food was pretty OK, just a notch above average in my book, but not a bad option.
