“They fired Mark.......”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I come back from season and was told mark our favorite server was fired...he was one of the best staff members they had.....he used to decorate the place too...I'm very disappointed...they have fired the older servers and have young teenagers running this place...they are terrible....the server was too busy giggling with the boys at the door instead of waiting on us.......I will go to outback from now on......

“Went absolutely down hill in 5 years”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

This used to be a good place for a reasonable dinner or lunch in venice. This place is now the bottom of the barrel. The staff lacks a professional look and attitude, service skills and lack of enthusiasm. The bartenders are poor to say the least. They flirt & cater to the less than desirables at the bar and fall bery short in service to drinks at the tables. Wait time for food is very long and the food comes out luke warm. The decor is old and outdated, lacks appeal to the eue. Nothing about applebees excites. Food presentation is poor, service from less than helpful staff and all around a poor experience. Been to this location many many times. Seems to get worse with each visit.

“Sorry not going back”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Too many menu changes have made this place not on our visit list anymore. favorite items are gone and the menu has shrunk way too much with clever ways of selling 1 item multiple times.

“Typical Applebee's”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Good value for decent food. We like outdoor eating. Went twice. Couldn't tolerate the bees.
