We keep going back as there is very few choices in the Ellenton/Parrish area. The biggest complaint is the terrible wait staff. Hostess's do not smile, act as if they are doing you a favor by seating you. Once seated, waiter/waitress take your drink order...More

Great choices-2 entrees and 2 salads for $20. The salad was huge and had fresh ingredients. The chicken entree however, was rubbery and watery. It tasted like it had been frozen. You get what you pay for!

Just had a very good burger for lunch, the onion rings had a fishy taste(change the oil!), We also had a artichoke/spinach/chicken pasta dish that was good, but not much artichoke. Each glass of wine was about 1/2 bottle! Service was great.

After a hectic morning shopping, we decided to make a quick stop at the Applebee’s for lunch....since they advertise ‘12 minutes or kess’. We were seated quickly, and ordered right away. Our drinks arrived, and we waited....and waited. After 35 minutes, we asked our waiter,...More

This review is going to sound a bit mixed up, because I am going to say something negative initially. The sound system or cooling system makes a buffeting sound that is hard on the ears. The food, service and cost are great, so I am...More
