Typical Applebee's - quality food at a reasonable price and this one is no exception. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Joined friends here for Saturday lunch. Had the Thai Shrimp Salad --spicy, crisp and full of shrimp with an exciting salad dressing. Prompt and cheerful service. Will probably return for the $7.99 burgers on a Monday.

My had his graduation dinner there. As we were waiting for our food a roach 2 inches long runs behind my sons head. Gross.... Told waitress and she apologized.. If roaches are in the dining area what is going on in the kitchen. Also steak was tasteless and raw. Will not go back.

Stayed at a nearby hotel for two weeks and ate here constantly. Food was always consistent....lots of great choices. Service was very cordial. Prices good. Wine was buy one, get one which was a great deal every day. I think we can quote the menu by heart we ate here so much. 😍

Well if you want average service and an average meal then pick this Applebee's. It is like all the other Applebee's in the country. You can't be mad at Applebee's on what they deliver if you have over 700 other choices in the city of Sarasota and expect that Applebee's is the one that is going to make you excited.... More

The restaurant itself is very nice, and while they don't have a gluten free menu per se, they do give you an allergen list. They also have a tablet on the table, but BEWARE, if you use it, a charge appears on your bill, unlike some other establishments where you use it to attract your server, or even order your... More

Went with friends for the Two for Twenty. Nothing to write home about except for the artichoke dip with chips, that was outstanding. The rest of the meal, not so much

We really enjoyed our meal at Applebees last night. Lovely barbecue ribs and a nice tender sirloin steak. We shared the brownie and ice cream dessert...fabulous! Service was a bit up and down, but the meal was good value and we will definately be eating at another branch on our travels.
