We stopped on our way to our beach vacation. It was pretty good. Staff was very friendly, but new computer system messed op the order.

Great for lunch with nice selection of food at a reasonable price, especially if you take one of their deals. Food was good and service was friendly and reasonably quick.

Why does a restaurant have the A/C on frigid? I know the wait staff is running around and they get warm, but the guests are sitting freezing. Food was typical for Applebee's, daughter's fries were exceptionally good and hot. Management finally came by, but as we were almost done with meal. So couldn't comment on being cold. We could hardly... More

When traveling, questions always arise, "Where to Eat". A safe and clean bet is an Applebee's. Nothing special, but the specials are a good choice at a reasonable price. Our Choices were prepared well and were flavorful. The service was friendly and professional. As others have reviewed that Applebees are not the same. In my travels I have found that... More

My wife and I both had Bourbon chicken with shrimp and it was excellent. We are trying to cut back so we had a baked potatoe, which was done to perfection, and the mixed vegetables were as good as can be...lots of variety and delicious. The chicken was very tender and the sauce gave it some life. Lots of delicious... More

Not all Applebees are the same. I like this one, the inside has been newly updated, and it seems to be managed very well. The servers are kind and pleasant and can be in and out fairly quickly.

Applebee's restaurants are always synonymous with good, innovative food, great deals and good service. The two visits to the location within two weeks in Northwestern Florida just confirmed the perception we had. In the two occasions we were promptly seated, but served "mildly" at the first time, while very friendly and warm in the second. In the first visit we... More
