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.

One of the best Applebee's I've ever been in. Food is consistently good and service is great. Nice casual atmosphere. I enjoy their salads and my husband likes the burgers.

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.
