LOVE their food, drinks and atmosphere. Always a good place to have girls night, date night or time alone. Some nights there is a DJ . Half priced appetizers after 10. Great customer service. Never had a issue here or any other Apple Bees and I've lived in three different Cities.

went there to just have quiet time with husband and it was quite slow in there and the hostess was very pleasant and happy to see us, but when we got seated, the server, was not smiling or anything. I thought maybe she was having a bad day. I ordered my meal, and my husband ordered his, and we waited,... More

Four entree's, two appetizers; for a Four cheese Macaroni it was overly sweet, another also highly sweet tasting ( could be to use of the cranberries used) but not too mention it on the cool/cold side. Waitress' spilling things and customers next to us had problems with theirs also.

First time in a weeks vacation, that we had super service and decent food. This may be an older Applebees, but they know how to take care of their customers. Appetizers and meals were served hot and tasted good! Great place to eat after Busch Gardens.

We love the Oriental chicken salad here. The other food was also good. We had ribs and chicken fingers that were good.We sat on the deck outside. The restaurant was clean but don't visit the bathroom. Our server was attentive and pleasent.

The food was fresh and the service was fabulas. I had the same meal at another site and this site was the best.

This was by far the worst restaurant experience I've ever had. The waiter was new, bless his heart. Where do I even start? The place was pretty empty for happy hour that should've been our first clue. We waited forever to get our drinks. We ordered "half off" appetizers except they do not explain which ones were actually half off.... More
