Always seems to be busy and very popular. You are greeted by a smiling helpful girl and shown to a table. Plenty of choice. Portions always seem (to me anyway) to be "huge".

We had limited time before a show and grabbed a bite to eat here. The staff were friendly, efficient and service reasonable.

We visited the branch on 42nd Street, close to Times Square. Nothing out of the ordinary, but you will get a reasonably priced, substantial breakfast, with pleasant service.

Went here for breakfast twice as it was right beside our hotel. Average food, average price. First server seemed rushed and was just trying to get everything done as fast as possible. Second server took her a while to first come to the table and take our order even though it wasn't that busy.

We found this restaurant simply by walking around the streets near our hotel on our first evening and it seemed to provide the sort of breakfast we were looking for to go to the following morning. The staff were always friendly and pleasant and work hard. The atmosphere was cheerful with TV screens which gave the current news which was... More

It's right at the entrance of Hilton Time Square, we ate there once for breakfast before we figured out that we could do better elsewhere, like Carnegie's Deli, Its like night and day

Was it an off night? I don't think so... Convenient location to the Hilton, that's it! Had dinner there after a long day in the city. Pasta dish was cold and flavorless. Steak "special" was un-eatable. Dirty floors, staff that seems like on their fourth shift, expensive for the experience. Walk a few blocks and find someplace else.

I went and had a chicken dish which was delicious, it took awhile to come out but the staff were impeccable and were super friendly and kept me up to date with where my meal was at which was great. From the moment I walked in the staff member greeted me warmly and took me to a seat straight away.... More

Quiet place in Times Square ( what a relief) good menu range, BUT watch for 17.5% gratuity automatically added to the bill. At least the server pointed this out when I tried to tip her. Expensive meal $53 for dinner !!!

I really like Appelbee's and I have eaten at this location in the past for dinner. On this business trip I just ate there for breakfast and it was very average. If I was staying at the Hilton again, (above Appelbee's) I would probably eat there again.
