Just what the doctor ordered

After a long day at Legoland, we came here for dinner. Great deal for a tired mom & dad! That particular night, they had 2 for 1 drinks and $6 burgers. Great deal - we like the food and drink and the kids enjoyed their kids' meals.

We winter in Lakeland and always eat at Applebee's when arriving (and usually our last meal also before venturing north). Have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. The Monday hamburgers specials are delicious. Very glad to see that the shrimp and spinach has returned to the menu. This our go to restaurant.

This Applebee's has a great location at exit 33 off of I-4. It sits right across the street from the awesome Crestwood Suites hotel and on my last visit to Lakeland I walked over and visited both nights during my stay. Amber, Stacey and Angela were all very competent professionals that were also fun and friendly to chat with. The... More

After a long day, it was nice to walk from our hotel next door for a meal. Food was good, reasonably priced, and Bryan D who was our waiter was very attentive. It was nice to relax & enjoy our meal & walk back to our hotel without having to deal with the usual driving afterwards.

This can be a meet and greet place for travelers due to the daily drink specials they have coupled with the late nite appetizer specials. The parking lot stayed full.

Next door to our Hampton Inn, so we walked over for an early dinner on Friday night. A little pricey for my taste, nothing new there. I am cheap! $35 w/ tip is a little more than I like to pay. Server Autumn was attentive. We ordered fried fish w/ fries and a Thai shrimp salad. Both were served promptly... More

This was a great neighborhood bar. Food was good, service right on and the crowd was very friendly. Much like my hometown, Greenacres, FL Applebee's used to be.

The quality and service you would expect. Did carry out, order was correct. Entrance is a bit tricky to find and have to go around the block to exit.
