From journal Month in Milwaukee for Business

Applebee's has a décor that is part sports bar, part family restaurant. You will be greeted once you enter by a wait staff member, and we found the overall service to be friendly and efficient. I imagine the wait can be a few minutes at peak hours, but we were immediately seated during lunchtime on a Sunday afternoon.
The fairly diverse menu features steaks, fish, chicken, burgers, drinks, appetizers, and desserts. I ordered a full order of riblets, which are a bargain at about ten dollars. You get a huge plate of barbeque pork riblets with your choice of sauce (the honey mustard that day was excellent), with tiny cups of beans, coleslaw, and a heap of crisp and well-seasoned fries. You can sit in a cozy booth or at elevated tables that usually face a TV showing a sporting event. This particular Applebee's was also a popular take-out place, as its location in the Mayfair Mall apparently draws that type of crowd.
I have seemingly shocked some of my colleagues who think that I would never ever eat at a chain restaurant. Indeed, I have eaten at another Applebee’s and found the dining experience to be similar, but still inferior to the Mayfair branch. On this particular time and date, Applebee’s was the right call for me.
