“Food very good but happy hour drinks confusing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Food very good, good choice on menu and reasonably priced. Our night ended on a sour note when the bill was brought to us. Our waitress told us beer was 2 for 1. We ordered 2 rounds of drinks thinkin gone would be free but it wasnt. When we questioned why, the waitress could not explain and got her manager to explain. She couldnt either!!!! All she would say was that the drinks were cheaper than other local restaurants (which they werent)!!! We think she meant the offer applied to regular drinks only and you would get 2 regular drinks for the price of one, in effect one large drink, however if you added the 2 regular drinks together it was the same price as a large drink elsewhere anyway so no saving - dont be fooled. Shame because the food was good.

“Great food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

When we arrived at Applebees we were promptly shown to our booth where we met our server Patsy. She could not have been any more helpful or friendly and really helped to make our dining experience a very pleasant one. The food was very good and we were offered drinks refills without any hesitation. On the whole a really enjoyable experience and somewhere that we would certainly go back to again,

“Watch out for your bill!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Visited Applebee's in Orlando a couple of times while the food was great and the service was good was very disappointed later when checking our bills against our dollar card that they had added a $10 dollar tip after we had paid the hill and left..... We had already left a tip! Beware!!

“Consistent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This Applebbes is like most. The Happy Hour is nice and the food is good...not excellent. Service at the bar was friendly. Location is nice in front of the Embassy Suites..an easy walk over.

“Great steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Nipped over the road from the Hampton for dinner. My husband reported his steak as 10/10 so it must have been good. I enjoyed the lemon shrimp and rice which was equally as good. Our server was plesant and chatty without being over imposing. We had a great night.
