My husband & I went here on the spur of the moment on a Tuesday after 10pm for the 1/2 off apps. It has been a while since we went. We neglected to ask if the "Best Server" Jerry was there that night! What a disappointment when we spotted him after we had already been seated & our order was... More

The Applebee's at Ellenton did not disappoint. Food was good and hot. Our server was enthusiastic, informatinve, and ready with the refill! Jerry made such an impression on my husband he made sure that he told his manager. His manager said everyone said that about Jerry. The food was just what we ordered.

Nice atmosphere. Service could be a little better. Not enough follow up. Food was always well prepared with good presentation. Upscale fast food restaurant.

We go every Tuesday night for the $6 Burgers. Each time we go, the staff is different. Sometimes we get a great waiter/waitress and other nights, we get 'not so great' service. The food remains consistent. We never had an issue with our food. Just some of the staff...only about 3 of them. The manager has been very nice to... More

My wife and I arrived for dinner and were seated promptly. We looked over the menu and decided what we wanted to eat. No server approached us during that time. We waited a few more minutes and another group came in (after us) and were served within minutes of their arrival. We waited a bit more and saw the electronic... More

Well located just next to the premium outlet mall. Cozy, but looks kind of old. I ordered the salmon and it was actually pretty good, the French potatoes were really good.

Waited on by Wendy who is extremely polite and efficient. All three of our meals were wonderful. Expertly cooked and presented. We will definitely be returning.

Went on Monday night with friends. Went for the burger special they have on Monday's for a reduced price. Only two of us ordered the burgers, and two ordered appetizers and entrees. We did get our ice tea and water, but it stopped there. We waited and waited, no food, no appetizers. Our server who absolutely had no personality, would... More

The food-service-price. The 2 for 20 dishes are great. Quality-Quantity-Value. Good place to eat. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
