Dirty, flies, a basic burger unidentifiable ,unshaped and burnt. Lack of basic food handing hygiene at the front - Gagging to watch server handle plates with prepared food on hands covered with remains from finished plates. PUBLIC HEALTH needs to step in !

The ribs and penne pasta for the 2 entrees for $20 was a great value for the money. Portions and taste of food was what I expected from Applebee's. There are two promotions on the table which I was too tired to ask about. If...More

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!
