“The one on Mooney is so much better”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

We have frequented the Applebee's on Mooney in Visalia many times and were very pleased. So on our way into Visalia stopped at this one on Avenida De Los Robles, and were very disappointed. The drinks were tasteless, including the draft beer. Service was slow, and food was not nearly as good as the Mooney restaurant. We ordered the same drinks and meals at both locations. We ate in the bar at about 5pm and it was quite busy and had numerous rude children. Some were loud, others were climbing all over the tall chairs next to our table, (being loud, too) as the adults stood and talked not telling them to stop, while they waited to be seated which took a long time. Very irritating.

“Reheated food, but good atmosphere”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

I asked the waiter about the food i ordered and basically they have food pre-made and they just throw it in the fryer to warm it, and the pasta they make in the morning and they just keep it warm all day. The atmosphere is nice though. I would recommend waiting for happy hour so you can get a better deal if you need a quick fix.

“watered drinks”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

Don't order a martini. The gin is watered. I ordered a Tanqueray martini, up & dry. My wife doesn't like gin & cannot stand the taste of it. She said that it was very weak. My opinion concurs. Extremely watered down. Another was offered. I accepted. It was exactly the same. So I assumed the bartender had no knowledge of this. The food is good, & the service is good a well.
