Keep in mind that after 5 days in NYC, my standards for servers was very very low. Not everyone was terrible but our hostess was abrupt and the server was the worst I have ever seen! I did not tip her and when I spoke to the assistant manager, she postured behind him and stared me down as if to... More

Having heard of Applebees but never visited, I wanted to check it out. I wasn't thrilled by their menu, it looked a little confusing and it was a bit overpriced. The food was good, but I did feel as though I was being rushed out the door by the waiting staff (and it wasn't even overly busy)

The pancakes are good, maybe not... More

We wasn't planning on visited a chain restaurant during our visit to New York, but having spent ages trying to find a suitable place for my vegetarian friend, we settled for Applebee's. I can't remember our waiters name, young blonde man from Australia or New Zealand, but he was great, very charming and efficient. There was a slight mix up... More

We enjoyed our meal and did not have to wait in line. That is always a plus. The food was excellent and the waiters were friendly. We were so tired and needed a quick meal. This place made us all happy.

Love this place, used to go when i was little when my Nan lived in San Francisco, so i couldn't wait to take my boyfriend and he loved it! Great food, great service and very clean and tidy in there! We was in New York for 5 days and went twice, didn't get nicer food anywhere else!
