We frequent Applebee's, it's local great menu and fantastic staff. Their menu is always changing and they haven't disappointed. Their prices are very reasonable and their food is very fresh. We will be back time and time again.

Hot tea was cold, sodas were flat, ok no prob..just asked to replace them and anticipating appetizers. Waitress... More

Limited beer selections and an OK menu. The burgers with stuff cooked into them were interesting. Typical Applebees.

The prices are very good and the service fast and caring. I had a wonderful salad with lots of chicken and my son had a big jucey burger. It was about flavor and refills on the drinks. All done without asking . We took home some for our dinner later in the day. It was a very happy experience. They... More

Wow- never knew Applebee's had a night life. Great happy hour specials after 9 p.m. and theme nights. Tuesday is super hero night, so the staff is decked out. Fun vibe and no one was leavin'. Dollar jello shots too! Service was great

Having eaten at Tony Roma's next door the night before - this place was magical! Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. Loved it. If your choice is Moorpark Hotel or Tony Roma's one night - come here - you won't regret it! In fact, it's even worth driving to! Thanks guys - I will be back!

We all know this isn't going to be the best food around, but they can be decent. The one item that I think they do well is the chicken wonton tacos and the happy hour price for four of them is cheap! Drinks are run of the mill and not very strong. All that said, this review is based on... More
