Good breakfast

We escaped the cold on the street to enjoy a warm brunch here. Good menu with calories shown. some of which we wish they didn't. :) Low prices and tasty food.

Visited this restaurant twice once for breakfast and once for dinner both times a real treat. The breakfast menu has a great choice and the omelette was really lovely. The dinner menu was just as good and the steak was to die for. I recommend the cocktails they are wonderful. Yes the prices are on the high side, but in... More

Went here for dinner, while I enjoyed mine my partner was disappointed , the jacket potato was poorly cooked , hard in places and the steak was nothing special. It was our most expensive meal in NYC and yet the least enjoyable !!!

We found this place on the first night of our holiday after a recommendation by the hotel and it certainly didn't disappoint!

Food was... More

My wife and myself found Applebee's on about the third day of our holiday but then went there for breakfast for the next three days. The food is great but what kept us going back were the welcoming friendly staff. We were made to feel at home and nothing was too much trouble. We had a very informative chat with... More

Came 8 of us after theater time and wanted a meal. No problem. Table was arranged. The 8 of us (incl small children) was taken good care of and we didn't have to wait long for the food. I had steak which was sensational, so no food complaints. All in all a very pleasant experience. We're going back tonight....

I had the shrimp with fries. Very average and they charge a fortune. It was literally a $5 dish and they charge like $25. Plenty of space but who cares when the food is average? Avoid!!!

Had breakfast here. Seemed to be more staff than customers and staff seemed disinterested. Server was friendly enough though. Food was average and filled a hole. Wouldn't bother returning though.

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
