My wife and I like the menu options Applebee's has, a nice variety. We both thoroughly enjoyed our choices from the menu and were able to relax after a long stay at Moffitt. The food was delicious and the service was great. As always, good piricing.

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.

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.
