On our last morning we wanted to go somewhere for a classic American breakfast. The breakfast food was entirely average, not a lot of choice and not very nice. Having had several omelettes with toast and home fries I can say it didn't taste good. Everyone seemed to agree it was a very poor... read more

Thank you for a great New Years Eve. My husband & I travelled from Australia & we were looking for somewhere to celebrate New Years as well as being able to see the ball drop and Applebee's definitely was the place to be!

I was walking along Broadway and saw the sign "The World's biggest Applebee's". Intrigued, I walked in and was seated on the second floor. The usual Applebees menu was available with a healthier options in the form of salads. I had the Lemon Chicken Salad which was quite tasty (560 calories) and the service was good. Overall, a pleasant experience.

On arriving at Applebee's we were seated almost immediately. There seemed to be some confusion as to who was to serve us, but a gentleman came over and said he was going to take care of us so we didn't have to wait. He was fast and friendly and we appreciated his observation that we were not being taken care... More

We frequently eat at chain restaurants and when we were visiting New York we decided to go to Applebee's in Times Square. The restaurant is spacious and there are a lot of seats there. The best part of the restaurant was its view of the street. You could gaze out the window the entire meal. The service was pretty good... More

You get what you went in for, grand service all together ,staff nice , food lovely and place tidy and clean .. could have the staff concentrate on the customers in side not just concentrating on seating people to help a bit more Mind.

This place is a great low key type of restaurant! It's similar to a lonestar or a blackstump. We have eaten here twice in the last week cause it has been convenient. It's a busy place but the staff are always friendly and the food always comes out without any faults! Would recommend

Had a great steak here. The staff were friendly and attentive. The steak we had, was cooked how we asked and lovely desserts! This is not cheap but worth it.

Well....I'll keep it short. It was extremely busy & noisy and the food quality was dreadful! Sticky tables, poor service (took a LONG time, just to order the drinks) The food was definitely not hot and the taste was really flavorless.... So if you are looking for poor food at a high price, this is the place for you!
