Good service and loved the 2 for 1 on appetizers and drinks. Waitress was very nice and came to our table every so often to see if all was good.

I say surprisingly because we've passed dozens of these restaurants over the years but we'd never been in one, until last night. On the i4 on our way back to Orlando from StPetes and we wanted some dinner. We exited at Lakeland and found this Applebee's and we decided to try them out. The place was buzzing, lots of diners,...

The chef's steaks are really recommandable. Two beers for the the price of one was a nice action. And the kids menu was in combo with an adult meal also surprisingly cheap. Friendly service, but the mensroom was horrible.

A typical chain place. Foods good and comes quick. Can be very noisy. The menu and placards make one confused. Too many deals with some type of restrictions. The waitress had a nose ring..That's gross when trying to eat.

Visited with 2 other couples for dinner with no expectations. Everyone raved about the quality of the food. One of the best burgers I've had in a while; my wife loved the salmon. Drinks we good, service was fine even though we had a trainee. A real surprise.

My husband and I only go out to eat once a week and therefore we expect service.We are not snobs, nor demanding, but We do not expect to go into a restaurant, be seated and then be ignored. Completely. Funny when we were walked to our booth I said to hubby "look at the dirty tables." The restaurant was empty... More

We were seated immediately and served quickly by an attentive waitress. Our food was hot and delicious. We chose not to use the electronic ordering device at our booth. We really appreciated that the printed menu gave us calorie information for each item listed, so we could make a more informed food choice.

Great food and very good service. This place is open until 2 am so is perfect if you arrive in town late or need a late night spot.
