Great Food

We enjoyed the Shrimp Dinner and the Fish and Chips. The waiter forgot to bring me a refill on the lemonade until we were ready to leave. We have to hunt down a server to bring us another set of silverware. It was very busy on Father's Day so I can overlook some of the minor problems. We will... read more

Excellent customer service by Kory and Keith. Our company's employees have been there 3 times in our job trip to this city and have reported complete satisfaction with these two particular servers.

Very friendly staff and quick service. The food is always good. I recommend, Sriracha shrimp and the Fiesta lime chicken is another great choice. They have an outside eating area. The place was recently remodeled and outside makeover.

In spite all the TV screens showing American Football the atmosphere for me was conducive to a pleasant night out. A good value menu and two for one beers added to an all round great meal. I ate here twice this week and had the same, pleasant waitress. Recommended.

The previous day, I'd traveled 908 miles to be with my 94YO Mom on Mothers' Day and she wanted to eat at a small family owned restaurant, only to find it closed on Mothers' Day. We ended up at Applebee's and it exceeded expectations in every respect, although I usually avoid chain restaurants, except for a time saver stop at... More

For many years we never even considered Applebee's, now their new menu is incredible. Beer cheese pretzels, sweet potato fries, roast beer pub sandwich with fried onions, four cheese twisted macaroni. You can't go wrong.

Food wasn't as good as other Applebees I've been too - but I was also the first customer there that day... maybe it was just too early. Service was good though and location is great.

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.
