“Poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I have tryed this Applebees 3 times now and said would not go back each time. My waiter did the best he could but had tables in other section and was not able to keep track of mine. Did not have ingrediants to make my simple drink ( that I get at all Applebees ).

“Excellent Value and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

It's open later than other places so we had a chance to get a good meal instead of fast food drive-through! Plus our hotel, the Red Roof Inn, has some agreement with Applebee's so we got 10% off. We chose the appetizer and dinner for two and upsized the size of the steaks. Very very good meal and great server, don't remember his name but he was very efficient and friendly despite being pretty busy. Would eat there again for sure.

“Awesome new look and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

We haven't been to this or any other Applebee's in years. To me, it seemed more like a loud bar in the past. However, today we decided to visit our local Applebee's and was more than suprised. We were met at the door by the manager Lonnie who was very polite and helpful. We looked around and noticed the new decor had photos of our local school sport teams and other school activiteis. One wall had Gators another had Bulldogs, etc. Photos of locals who are well known in the community. All very tastefully done. Our waitress was Ms Debby who took care of our requests and was polite and friendly. Our appetizer was spinach dip which was hot and excellent. The lime chicken and rice was very good. All in all, a very good late afternoon lunch. We will be back..

“Very Good Soup and Sandwich for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

On March 6, 2014 we stopped in for lunch at Applebee's. We both ordered the soup and sandwich for lunch which we both enjoyed. Service was very good and pleasant. There are many items on the menu that I would like to go back and try. I would recommend this restaurant to my family and friends. They make you feel very welcome at this restaurant.

“Stop on the Way to Ocala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Service and food were great. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch. The food was hot and service was fast. Our server was so attentive. Glasses never got down to empty and she checked on us constantly. Easy access from the highway at a very busy exit.
