Came here in 2010 and had the worst breakfast in my life..... But thought I'd give it another chance, and I can not say a bad word about it!! We both had a great meal and left feeling pleased we'd given it another try!! Maybe dinner is the way forward at Applebee's 😜

For a place like this, it's really nice food. I didn't expect much of it. We had lunch here, I had a sandwich with salad and my boyfriend a soup and a sandwich. Great!

We arrived and were seated by the window after requesting to do so in the near empty restaurant it was around 10am. The place smelled like a homeless person and I... More

A group of six went to eat, we all had great food and the service was great. I recommend the Maple Bacon Chicken Piadini and the mozzarella sticks!

We visited this restaurant and had a good meal. I ordered a Long Island Ice Tea with raspberry flavor, a three cheese penne meal. My Fiancé had a coke, Maple Cheese Padini and the overall the meal was good. They brag that it's the largest Applebee's restaurant and with extra floors it may well be large for Manhattan? If you...

Visited Applebee's twice during my 6 night stay in New York, excellent steaks and burgers, friendly and helpful staff. The dinning area on the third floor provides nice views.

Staying in Midtown

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.
