This is definitely Santa Maria's version of TGI Friday's. Great drinks and late night Happy Hour pricing...just don't go if you want great food. Everytime I have been here the food is just so so. However, the drinks are always superb.

They seats are a little worn and a few have splits in them due to the high traffic this sores gets. our waiter... More

The margarita chicken & shrimp salad is outstanding. We also had a classic lunch combo and it was great. They have a good variety on the menu and we have never had a bad meal. Service is good as is the food and drinks.

We were hungry and tired.. we had tried a couple of other restaurants in the area but they just didn't seem to have what we were wanting. We had never been to Applebees before and we don't have it back home in Australia but a friend here in USA had worked at one of the restaurants so we thought we... More

The food always tasted microwaved to us. You never have the same server so no one knows who gets what. Just not a good set up to me.

We just left the Santa Maria Applebees extremely dissaointed. My husband and youngest son ordered the fettuccini shrimp, my older son the fish and chips and onion rings, and I ordered the baby back ribs. My son couldn't et past two bites of his fettuccini shrimp, so his brother traded his fish and chips, while I tried to make the... More

We decided to stop at Applebee's in Santa Maria after dining the previous night at Red Lobster and thought it a bit expensive. An employee at Applebee's opened the door for us and made us feel welcome. We were shown a nice table, service was prompt. The prices are a good value. We ordered a light portion of steak with...

We've been to other Applebees and have had average food, but at least you know what you are getting. I happen to think the one in Santa Maria is better than average. The service has always been really good and the food is great. There is such variety on the menu that anyone can find something they'd want to order.... More

It was what we expected at a Applebee's. Not bad food at all, good drinks, and awesome Sangeria's!
