We ate at Applebee's only for desert, I was unhappy with the level of service and with the atmosphere since there is no real place we found to go late for Desert and Champange we had to settle for Applbees which was one of the few open late. We were there at about 10 pm and it seemed like a nightclub which totally surprised me based on the fact that Applebee's is nothing like that in Harrisburg, PA where we live. The deserts were small and not filling, their selection of drinks were not the best and they did not garnish the drinks which I thought was their policy to do. As we were leaving more people were showing up dressed ready to party at a R & B nightclub- rather disappointing. However the place was clean.
