I enjoy eating at Applebee's in Portage because the restaurant isn't packed on Friday night. At other nice restaurants, I feel like I am being pushed out of my seat on weekend nights. At Applebee's there is always a steady flow of people, but it never gets over crowded. The food is excellent and they have a wide variety of entrées for everyone to order. The atmosphere is very kid friendly and there are alot of families that eat here. The prices are very good and you always have enough food to take home for a meal the next day.
