This is a wonderful place to have a delicious meal! The casual beachy atmosphere just adds to your enjoyment! If you like music, they have some very good local bands playing in the warmer months outside. There are great big beautiful spanish moss covered cypress trees shading the outdoor dining area! Rockers and a hammock are out back by the water if you care to relax too! Inside there are marine themed decorations as one would expect! They even have an area off the dining/bar area with pool tables and video games for the kids to enjoy after dinner, so mom and dad can relax and enjoy each others company without distraction! Lol! Oh! The food is excellent! They have a varied menu with something for everyone! Large portions, and great prices! The wait staff and bartenders are friendly, fast, and know what they're doing! Don't let the exterior fool you when you pull in! This is a J'ville icon that deserves a visit! Trust me, that's ALL it will take for you to become a regular patron! Enjoy!
I have lived in Jax, for 30 years, eaten at this AppleBees many, many times. I have always been greeted upon arrival within a couple of minutes at the most, treated with respect, seated at clean tables and the food is awesome! Our waiters were always attentive to our needs so what these other reviews are saying is untrue, or maybe the restaurant was packed as it usually is and they were being taken care of asap!!! Also I have worked at restaurants as a waitress when I was much younger in a resort town and people are just human, and not there just to make sure that everything goes to your upmost expectations!!!They are there to make it a nice experience and if you want the best then go to Lynn's Steakhouse and pay 70.00 dollars for a meal.
