My elderly mother and I dine here frequently when I come to visit her in Sarasota. The food and service here has always been consistently good, and we both enjoy our visit. The menu has a surprising variety of appetizers, meals, sides, and desserts. I'm a fan of the BBQ ribs; Mom usually enjoys one of the sirloin preparations, where... More

We were on the road in Sarasota and stopped here on the way out of town. We like Applebees and the food was no disappointment. It took some time to get it though. I think one of the servers called in sick because our server was overloaded. After a great dinner I asked for the check and she told me... More

Stopped here with friends on 1/13/17 and ordered the Signature Combo.(Tai shrimp salad and honey chipotle chicken). It was very good. Our waitress Tina J. was awesome as well!

I like this location for dinner out or time with my wife. The staff here is very friendly. The food is always good, and we get seated quickly any time of day. The store is clean and parking is not usually a problem. My whole family likes the variety available here, even the picky eaters. The fried pickle are awesome.

Very much a sports type restaurant with lots of screens displaying various sports, there was also a news channel too. We wanted something simple to eat that came on a manageable size plate which allowed you to finish all that they put in front of you. We ate here twice on our holiday, once as a couple and again with... More

A typical sports bar/restaurant with friendly, sassy service in pleasant dining areas. An extensive menu to suit mists tastes: fish , chicken , beef and salads. Not over fancy, but comfortable and clean. Main courses about $10 to$20 with lesser priced "hand healds" and snacks. A wide choice of wine and beer at good prices.

Good menu at very reasonable prices good choice of beer and wines. Careful with the the small computers on each table ,start answering the quiz questions and you end up with a charge on your cheque.

A lunch time visit to catch up Amy's Eldest Son and his New Wife, the service is fine and our meals and drinks were delivered in good time, while there was nothing remarkable to comment on I have nothing negative to say, Amy and I only had an appetizer, however Devin and Laura had a meal and it looked delicious,...

Lime chicken was ok. Too much sauce, and rice tasted like it had been sitting for a while. Onion Rings came with BBQ sauce??
