As a general rule I would not usually rate a steak at a mid-range chain but this is the exception. We recently tried the wood-fired 12 oz sirloin and were pleasantly surprised. So we tried it again today and were again very pleased. Cooked perfectly to our order, Well presented. Servers are attentive, wait time appropriate to the meal. All... More

We try to visit as many independent restaurants as possible while were are in Florida. We had a gift certificate for Applebee's and decided to use it. I had been there before (in a different city) and found it difficult to find healthier foods. That has not changed. They have a good variety of very tempting comfort foods but we... More

Since we had a gift card, we decided to try this tonight. They seated us in a corner Even though the place was half empty. Service was slow, food wasn't hot, and my husband's French onion soup tasted like the cheese was rotten. They couldn't find a manager. This is one place we won't be going back to.

I was helped with my order by Melodie, who did great. I took advantage of the 2 for $25.00 special, where you not only get 2 full dinners, but also an appetizer to boot. So even with a tip, I get away with a bit over $30.-and this is for at least 2 good meals. I do enjoy their BONELESS... More

Went here early for dinner and had a delightful two for $25 dinner with my wife. She had the 6 oz sirloin and I had the BBQ half slab of ribs. Both well prepared along with sides. We shared two generous house salads. Service was prompt and courteous. Good value overall. Seems like more and more our "go to place".

I just got picked up from Airport & wanted a bite to eat before we were to go & surprise my mom for her 70th Birthday. So we stopped just to get a snack. Very good. Great service. Got to be with Family & we had a good time.

Nice restaurant, charming staff, decent food at acceptable prices but why, oh why did they think that serving a desert mainly of ice-cream and cream on a plate that felt as if it had come straight out of the dishwasher. I spoke to a server who asked if I was enjoying my desert and I gather that cold desert on... More

Great menu options, affordable prices. Ate out on the patio since weather was lovely, didn't realize that smoking was allowed in restaurants and we had a chain smoker come sit next to our table, waitress was accommodating and allowed us to move to opposite end of patio which worked out fine. You may want to keep this in mind if... More

I love Applebee's because I have a few favorites and they are always the same and just the way I like them.
