I was surprised that it now looks like "Cheers" but has good food. Menus aren't kept up to date. Very "sportsy". The fries were great.

Nice place to go with great bartenders. We like to go and have a couple beers (two for one). We get two for twenty or twenty five to go. We eat the appetizer there and take the entrees to go. Patrice is the best!

Had a lovely lunch at Applebee's, we all had the half and half lunch. The sandwich and salad I had was delicious and wasn't too heavy for lunch. Food is always good, consistent and good value for money. We will be back Applebee's!

Standard American food; new menu helps add some new flavors. Mostly clean; can get crowded but wait goes fast.

We joined another couple for a Saturday dinner. Being the 'off-season' we had no problem getting a booth despite the number of cars in the parking lot. My wife and I decided to share 5 appetizers for under $20. The app portions we just right for sharing, and we especially enjoyed the ribs, quesadilla, and sriracha shrimp. We were a... More

Ate here because the local place we really wanted to eat at was closed. It was busy, which is to be expected in Ellenton on a weekend night. We did not mind waiting- as again, it is to be expected. When we were seated, we got our drinks in a timely manner and ordered food. My dinner was ok- not... More

We tried this place for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food was good and value priced and the service was prompt and friendly without being over the score.

My local Applebee's. Always a pleasure to be there. Very close to the Ellenton Outlet Malls and a great place to meet our neighbors and friends.
