There are good Applebee's, and then there is this one. Worst service ever. Worst food ever. No manager to complain to and update. Unreal. Without boring you with the irritating madness of this place, let just say that if you are dumb enough to go, you deserve to be disappointed.

Hubby & I had a not so good experience @ another Applebee's & unfortunately were soured on them for a while. BUT, we decided to give them one more try (& @ a different location) today, and, we're SO GLAD that we did! What a difference!! From the time we arrived until we left, we were helped by smiling &...

Stopped in for lunch with friends. Waitress took drink & food orders promptly, but drink refills came infrequently. Food took almost 30 minutes to arrive, even though they werent very busy. Food was tasty. Ordered chicken fingers & ceasar salad on the take 2 lunch menu.

My husband and I visit for lunch.The food was great! We didn't have a wait. The best part of our visit was the waitress. Very friendly and advise us of other attractions in the area such as Lido Park and beach in which we went and end up enjoying the area and beach better than the Siesta Key Beach.

We went in because we had some time to kill before we had to meet up with more friends... I really wish we had gone somewhere else. Although we were quickly greeted at the door, there the positivity ends. The server (when we could find her) constantly seemed as though she was being inconvenienced when we asked for anything.

Great food, great prices, had something the whole family could enjoy. The meal deal, the 2 for $25 specials were fantastic when traveling with teenage boys who can eat a lot!

After a lengthy weather delayed flight from NY to FL and a fiasco with a car rental, we finally arrived after 1030pm at our destination. Thankfully, this Applebee's was still open for dinner. The staff and Adam J, the manager were wonderful. We were greeted by a smiling face, seated, drinks and food order taken within minutes. Each of us... More

I ate at this restaurant twice on my recent stay in Siesta Key. I had the Sirlion Steak and, having recently eaten at a local Steakhouse, was not expecting great quality. What a pleasant surprise the steak was delicious, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. The fries were also very tasty. My companions had chicken salad and a burger and... More

We were driving on the Interstate and needed a lunch that was convenient, quick, filling - but a cut above the usual fast food joints. Applebees fitted the bill. 2 of our party did the 2 for $20 deal, while I opted for a signature combo for $8.99 (French Onion Soup & Honey Chicken Tenders on Mac & Cheese). The... More

This place is your typical USA chain bar/restaurant. barstaff good, food ok, beer ok, atmosphere not as good as Gecko's ( 50 yds behind this building ). No intimacy, you are just a number !
