This isn't a knock on this Applebee's, but the few I've been to all seem to be about the same - same decor, same pretty good service, average to above average food. I came here with my daughter for dinner. This was my first time at this Applebee's off Providence Rd in Brandon. She got their three cheese cavatappi with... More

Our service and ordering (there were 9 of us) was a bit hit and miss, we did wait a while, the appetizers plus main dishes ALL came at once filling our table. Not really classy or appropriate. Think they had a new bartender. Took ages to get certain cocktails mixed. guess they had to look in a recipe book. one... More

We arrived in the middle of Super Bowl and were quickly seated. We both ordered burgers and fries and I had the featured blackberry sangria. The burgers were very tasty and the icy, fruity wine was perfect!

We usually don't go here much anymore because it's went downhill a lot. The food and service is not the greatest.

I visited this location while in Tampa for a wedding on 9/23. We had a party of 25 waiting to dine. The patio seating, which was sufficient to accommodate our party was available, however, our party waited for over an hour for space to free up inside of the restaurant. We were told we could not sit outside. When we... More

Recently went here for lunch and was extremely disappointed by the terrible service. When we were seated at our table the seats and the table were wet and we stood for over 2 mins before anyone came to dry it. Then we waited again for our waitress. She obviously was not very well trained. We had to ask more than... More

We had not been to Applebee's in many years, so we decided to try it. Our server couldn't get our order right, she forgot things (even though she wrote it down) and had to keep asking us. My husband and I both ordered French onion soup but they only brought one. When we asked about his, they said it was... More

Nice place for a quick dinner. Nothing fancy but the food is good, service is quick. A large variety of food to suit everyone appetite. Try it - you'll like it.

I am sure corporate goes to great effort to have a good positive brand image. Yet, all of that work can be undermined with substandard service. We came in for lunch and were told it would be a ten minute wait for a table while several tables sat empty with dishes on them from prior customers. The host was clearing... More

Food quality has deteriorated. Had to replace all silverware due to it not being clean. Server was good but helper was rude.
