Our waitress was amazing. Sadly that was the only thing good about our experience tonight. My meal was inedible due to burnt crust and an excessive amount of sauce. The onion rings we alright. I'll just stick with my Asian chicken salad next time.

This is a typical sports bar restaurant - the meals were good, well presented and were delivered to the table quite quickly. When taking the orders the server was very professional and every suggestion was an upsell. The wine list was just a couple of lines - no real choice. Three people joined our party several minutes after us but... More

Although the food was good the experience was ruined by us being over charged and having to argue to get it put right. Applebee's have always been my favourite chain of restaurants when visiting the USA . We ordered two sodas and an appetiser and two meals from the $25 deal expecting the check to come to around $33 we... More

Had a great time here last night. The waitress was so nice to us and our kids. She was on top of making sure our drinks were filled and the kids had what ever they needed. She also put up with every crazy request of my mother in law. Will be happy to return again.

For a sports bar, Applebee's is quite good, and easy on the pocketbook. Their waitstaff is friendly and competent, and their bar staff is knowledgeable. The atmosphere is interesting, keeping the local high schools and college teams prominent in the decor.

Something has certainly changed with the training at this chain. We got a good welcome and were speedily seated - and that was the end of the good stuff. Service was slow and when the food came we had to point out that we had no silverware to eat with. . . So the food gently cools while we wait... More

Service as usual was slow but the food is worth it. Love the 2 for $20 or $25 deals. This works extremely well for my husband and I.

Never disappoints. Often crowded. Often noisy (sports bar in the center). Service is always good and so is the food. AlthoughI'm not a big champion of chains, our local exemplar is quite good and better than some others I've been too. My kids like this place and they are picky!

This is definitely Santa Maria's version of TGI Friday's. Great drinks and late night Happy Hour pricing...just don't go if you want great food. Everytime I have been here the food is just so so. However, the drinks are always superb.
