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

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

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