A decent spot for lunch. Not an exceptional supper place but all right. A very American restaurant, kids will enjoy.

Visited this location with a group and the food came out hot, fast, tasty. Conpliments to the chef. The server was amazing. The manager was fantastic. He greeted the tables and helped the staff. Wow. Talk about leadership. You could tell that the staff was happy. I would visit this location again especially for groups.

Same menu as always. Easy to get a seat, reasonable prices, decent service. We did not go away overly impressed but then, we had no complaints.

It's Thursday night, we ordered 2 kids meals and a steak. It's been over an hour and the place is almost empty. I now see why it's empty!

We came here at about 2:30 pm. The restaurant has very few customers. It is now 3:34pm and the only thing we have been served is our drinks. This is ridiculous! I'm writing this review as we wait for our food. The locals and regular visitors must know about the service. We do not recommend this restaurant at all. Finally... More

Restaurant is not near the beach or any other restaurants but it is right next to a courtyard Marriott hotel and really close to a Residence Inn hotel and an outdoor mall area. This is a typical Applebee's but really convenient with the hotels.

Everything was tasty besides the steaks. Ask for well done they were medium rare. Took steak back and returned it burnt a and crispy. Manager took the meal off bill.

We waited for about 10 minutes after being seated in the bar area. A manager finally walked by and asked if we had been waited on when we said no he said he would get someone. About 10 minutes later we still didn't get service. The restaurant was no more than 25% full so there was absolutely no excuse.
