Went to this Applebees in Wilkes-Barre for dinner.We were welcomed and introduced to our server.She was very informative and animated,a pleasure.She recommended a couple of items and the drink of the day,all were very good and plentiful. You are the "Beth" in town to be sure.

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.

I enjoyed the steak and potatoes and my son liked the chicken and potato meal. The food was good but we didn't see Tyra at this restaurant

Whenever I've stopped in Ive always sat at the bar. The bartenders are good. They are funny and knowledgable. Great spot to grab food and drinks after my night job. Love there cotton candy martini not sure what's it's called but they make it right in front of you and pour the liquor over cotton candy. The prices are decent... More

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

This was an attempt at a business-oriented meal. A co-worker and myself didn't stand a chance. Both the server and the manager on duty were constantly interrupting us. The first time he asked about our meal, we hadn't even received it. It exasperated both of us. More than once, we lost a complete train of thought. It was far from... More

I frequent Applebee's approximately 2 to 3 times every week throughout the country. I set at the bar at this Applebee's. The bartender had a personality of a rock. She seem to be more interested in texting and doing nothing behind the bar. This is not typical for an Applebee's. Most of the ones that I go to offer very... More
