Nice variety on menu which includes deals like two for $20.00. Specality sandwich was very good. Love their sweet potato fries. Shrimp meals are also very good and worth the value.

Was passing thru on 81 and wanted a quick lunch. It was Sunday and the boneless wings were on special during football games. Do not recommend them...actually cannot say why. Just seemed like I was eating a mystery hunk of something. Otherwise the place is clean, friendly and busy. Just pass on the boneless wings.

We eat at this Applebee's every time we are in Wilkes-Barre and we like to bring our family in when they are visiting from Michigan. We love Jon and try to get him as our server when we can. The food is always wonderful and comes out fresh and hot! We have never had a bad experience!!

We havE eaten here before and found it a very nice! I think that people forget that it is a sports bar, and it gets crowded! We went early and it was fine. Our waitress was attentive and prompt. Our food order was from the "Two for $25" menu. One was the Crispy Shrimp with fries; it came with the... More
