For a chain resturant one would think there is standarization across the board. However at this location the food is always greasier, and the wait staff is often slow. Im not sure I'll be going back, even for half-priced apps.

The hostess was friendly and my server Lafayette greeted us with a hello. He was a good server and always close by. The food and portions were very good as always.

I don't think I can come up with 100 words to describe my experience at the Piscataway/S.Plainfield Ruby Tuesday! The salad bar did not meet the same standards as other Ruby Tuesday's I've eaten at.

Tied up through lunch with an appointment, sometimes missing the crowd can be great. Appetizers were excellent for a lite bite, and with not many patrons, the service excelled. They offer a trio of appetizers that works for two people, not looking to eat a lot. For someone that has never been to Applebee's, it's filled with pictures of locality,... More

Top 5. It is a great restaurant with a good environment to spend a good time with friends. There is a restaurant and a bar either side of the restaurant you want to be at, it is a great place to be. It is a combination of peace, joy, comfort and entertainment!

We were in the Piscataway area last night and figured we would stop into Applebees since we haven't visited that chain in a while. They seemed semi-busy with a 10 minute wait that turned into 5 minutes. The girls at the door were polite and I was excited to spend a nice "date night" out with my girlfriend. Our waiter... More

I always cringe when someone suggests going to Applebee's. It is very hard to find something worthwhile there if you're a vegetarian. At my recent visit, ordered a Napa Chicken and Portobello entree and figured I could work with that, minus the chicken. Since I would not be getting the chicken, I asked the waitress for extra veggies. Well, I... More
