“Hoooters or Applebee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I just had dinner at Applebee at 1204 Townsgate Ct
Plant City, and noticed something different this time: attractive waitresses , whose revealing outfits and sex appeal where everywhere Are they trying to imitate Hooters?? Applebee is a really nice family restaurant, they don't need those pretty girl in short shorts serving dinners to us...

“Shame no breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We stopped here en route from St Pete to Orlando at around 11am. We really wanted breakfast, but the restaurant only offered more brunch type dishes such as club sandwiches or salad. Went for the club sandwich. The bread was fried and the fries were salty. The coffee was fresh but not that tasty. Would not go again as nothing special.

“It's What You'd Expect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Likes:

Consistency with menus regardless of the region. Discount appetizers after 10 pm. Healthy menu options. The male bartender is a wonderful and will occasionally give patrons 2-for-1 specials on specialty drinks: Irish Coffees, etc.

Dislikes:

Food is what you'd expect from a big-chained restaurant. And while I do not fault the cooks for their cuisine, I do have a problem with the consistency of the food prep on my visits. There have been several times where I have had to send meals back due to them being cold or incorrect. The taste is average. You can tell some food is pre-packaged and brought in via distributors: US Foods, Sysco, etc. This is expected.

Additionally, the turn-around of the staff is noticeable, even on casual visits. The quality lacks in that regard. If you're planning to visit on a Saturday night with more than 3 in your party, be prepared to wait. The place becomes packed with locals.

Also, Wednesdays are karaoke night. Do not visit unless that's your kind of thing. Copious amounts of high school students and loud music.

“Applebees waitresses will announce your card balance at your table with no discretion.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

At applebees after they get the balance off your card reciept the waitress will announce ihow much is left on your bill to the table. This happened to me in front of my clients when the waitress returned with the check. Not very nice. I do not think they have the right to know what your balance is let alone announce it to the world. Good way of getting robbed or killed. If you dont believe me use your debit card at applebees and the waitress tells you in front of everyone.
