We came here after having visited the outlet mall across the street. The kids were hungry so we asked to get their food asap but after quite a long wait for ours appr 5-10mins before theirs, which I disliked. Otherwise the food was tasty and the price for the kids meal was 0.99$. Family friendly atmosphere.

Been here a couple of times, being conveniently located across the outlet mall. Selection changes from time to time. Staff was friendly and the quality of the food is good.

I think they mistakenly spilled sugar in it because it was way too sweet. I wasn't expecting this to be a sweet dish because Mac & cheese isn't supposed to be sweet. My boyfriend... More

Stopped by here after a hard days shopping in Ellenton outlets which are just across the street. Its like any other Applebees or Chili's restaurant. Well laid out and well decorated.The food and service was second to none. We all had soup starters which was delicious. Our mains were all deliciously presented by our lovely waitress. Highly recommended.

Monday's at Applebee's are great! $7 burgers (any one of them on the menu). Also, drinks are buy one, get one free. The atmosphere is quiet, for a chain restaurant. We usually eat at the bar because we can summon the bartender anytime we need him/her. Quiet enough to carry on a conversation. Food is consistently good. There is one... More

I stayed at the Sleep Inn in Ellenton, and this Applebee's was within walking distance. Good service and your typical Applebee's selections.
