Nice food and good service

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.

Apple bee's has great food and a good choice of different things. I love their salads. We eat there often and have never had a bad meal.

I really liked the sliders at Applebee's, but the last time I was there, they weren't on the menu anymore. 1/2-price apps at the bar are a good deal, but wish they'd bring the sliders back!

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.
