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

I ordered Cedar Salmon and a Red Apple Sangria. Food it was not what I saw on Manu, and the veggies were old and not fresh at all. I order a side of rice and I got the rice 20 minutes before he main order. Sangria were flat and full of sugar and the fish and ships of my boyfriend... More

Their food is mediocre. Period. I don't see why this place is so popular. I'd rather eat macaroni and cheese at home.

I experience great service everytime I go to the restaurant. Their menu has options that provide the bang for the buck with the 2 for $20 menu, a 'under 550 cal' menu for those watching their weight. A very friendly atmosphere - quick and courteous service ! Portions are big - so watch out picky eaters! There is plenty of... More

Ate here 3 times whilst staying at the Moorpark hotel. Great menu with loads to choose from. A little 'fast foody' for me but I think that is an English thing!! The team were amazing. I left my Black berry in there the first night (a bit of jet lag kicking in I think!) and when I went to look... More

I often lunch here when in San Jose. Like all Applebee's, the faire is consistent very good (not great, but better than many chains). Service here is always fast and friendly, and you never have to worry about an empty coffee cup or lemonade glass.
