The menu is typical Applebees, regardless of the location. However, the preparation varies over time. We have eaten at the restaurant often as a couple or with extended family. Depending upon the wait staff that day, the service can be excellent or mediocre. The variability of the food prep mirrors that of the service. Sometimes good, sometime not so good.... More

We visited on a Friday night around 6:30. The restaurant was not that busy, and had plenty of available seating. Upon arrival at our table we noted it was very sticky. We politely asked the server to send someone to clean the table. He obliged; however, the person he told went to the wrong table, so ours never got cleaned.... More

Burgers... More

We've been to many Applebee's in Florida, but we were disappointed in this one. Service took a very long time, as did our food and drinks. The appetizer combo was slightly cold, and the spinach artichoke dip was watery. What we thought was going to be an average dinner with the kids took over 2 hours! I would not go... More

I wanted riblets! Waiter sort of made fun of us. We waited 45 minutes to get our food,... More
