Be prepared to spend more then you think on dinner at Applebee's. Two basic meals with one app, 2 drinks each (beer on tap) that would have been no more then $40 with tip back home was $98 with tip. I know it's NYC, but it's also only Applebee's!

Service was horrible. Gratuity is automatically added on to the bill. That's probably why the service is so bad, because they know they will get a tip no matter what. Do not order a salad unless you want to pay $20 for a small bowl of lettuce.

We have just come back from New York and popped in to this resturant for a 6pm meal for three. The World Cup was on and it seamed that all the staff was more interested in watching the screens than serving. We had to ask twice for our drinks, meal came and was poor. I had a chicken salad with... More

We had breakfast here. We ordered omelets and asked for extra spinach. The spinach wasn't added to the omelets but served in a small bowl - moreover they charged nearly 9 dollars for this "add-on" + a 15% forced gratuity without informing about that. You can have much better breakfast for less without those extra ripoffs

5 story applebees, largest in the world. Great food as always, service a little slow, and pricey (but you play for where you are at). In times square area

This is a really tasty restaurant, but more on the fast food kind of food. We tried to find meals under the 1000 calories and it was not easy, so if you're on a diet....forget your diet. The food was tasty and the restaurant has a good feeling to it.

Usual story, show at Time square, made the mistake of eating in the Times Square area. Very expensive for average food. Service was quick though.

I saw the restaurant called as Applebee's in many cities in US, and finally, I decided to try food there. After Having food at Applebee's, I talked to myself ...why don't you come to have food here before?... There are many menus and prices are reasonable too. Surely, food is delicious and quite well decorated as its picture on menus.... More

Im a little late in sharing this review, but I know what it was like when we were searching for ways to spend NYE in New York, and Applebees didn't seem to have too much written about it, compared to Bubba Gump etc. So after failing to get tickets to Bubba Gump (along with the rest of the world), we...

Service was good but the prices were nuts. Same meal, from the same restaurant, anywhere else in the USA would have cost a 1/3 of the price. 2 cheeseburgers and one chicken tender basket, plus 2 drinks cost $92. We ate at several other places in NYC and this place for what it is is priced wayyyyy to high
