Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar Restaurant Review

: Applebee's is a neighborhood favorite. Families come for the easy-to-eat menu items such as the burger topped with a portobello mushroom and Swiss cheese, and the fiesta lime chicken finished with Jack-cheddar sauce and served with tortilla chips and seasoned rice. Others might simply like the homey décor featuring memorabilia honoring the nearby high school's sports teams. Go for the grilled chicken Caesar salad and the shrimp and broccoli cavatappi tossed in a light cream sauce. The Pub Diet menu (items are all under 600 calories) includes pepper-crusted sirloin served with whole grains and sautéed spinach. We like the strawberry cheesecake dessert shooter layered with graham cracker crumbs, classic cheesecake, strawberry sauce and whipped cream. The sizeable pub-style bar offers plenty for the grown-ups, including a line of signature drinks with such names as Blue Moonlight Margarita.
