This is your typical Applebee's. It was our granddaughter's request and we were all satisfied. I would probably stay away from ordering steak. My steak salad steak was under cooked and her top sirloin was overdone. Overall it's decent food at fair prices.

We go to this Applebees quite a few times each year. Staff is always friendly, efficient and service is great. The menu is varied, great chicken & ribs etc., however, my reason for going the last two times was strictly for their hamburgers. Fantastic!!! 5 stars..... huge burgers that are not overshadowed by an enormous bun. Many choices of burgers,... More

Applebee's compares very favorably to its competition like TGIF and Chili's. Their lunch specials are half off on some of our favorite menu items. And their dinner specials offer substantial savings too. The beverage list has anything we might be interested in trying. Applebee's servers are without exception some of the most efficient and personable that we have met. They... More

Took my son and his friend for a bite to eat. Service was slow. The boys ordered from the kids menu and we laughed when the food arrived. Our family friend ordered chicken fingers with mozzarella sticks. The chicken tenders were the size of appetizers. My son basically received a piece of chicken cut into tenders. I ordered the chicken... More

I was traveling around the Tampa area working and decided to stop for lunch. Although I have been to different Applebees for dinner, this was my first lunch experience. The food was prepared very well, it was tasty, and just the right amount for lunch. I had the lunch special of ceasar salad with delicious dressing, honey flavored chicken tenders... More
