This became our go to for breakfast each morning and depending on who served you would depend on what you received!! Our juices each morning varied from large glass with ice to small wine glasses (same price charged). Everything is smothered in whipped cream and a little greasy. Large serves.

We had a holiday gift card and decided to use it during a visit to NYC. The high point was the service-the low point was everything else. I had not been to an Applebee's for a year or so and the last visit in NJ was better than I expected, but this visit was how I remembered Applebee's from occasional... More

Ate here for breakfast one morning and it was very nice. Place was busy but staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Variety on the menu for food and drinks! Prices are reasonable

Traveled to "the City" to enjoy the day and stopped in Applebees to have dinner. The server was polite and efficient and the food was ok. The disappointment was the manager, Mr. Keith Hancock, who decided that he wanted to engage in an argument at tableside. Briefly, the issue was that my adult son had taken the manager on the...

We ordered from the 2 for $20 menu and the food was great. Good selection. The kids meals were a bargain too.

My cousin and I visit the Applebee's after a night bus tour. It was very cold outside and we were very hungry. The place was full of people and I enjoyed the atmosphere. We had a pot of green tea and my cousin ordered the ribs with fries on the basket and I order the 3 cheese chicken pasta. Everything... More

I was really disappointed with the menu choices, price and quality of the food here. Compared to the other eating options around Times Square this place could be in real danger! Skip this and go to Bubba Gumps or Hard Rock, or get away from Times Square and find a nice deli and get some proper freshly prepared food!

Looked quite busy from outside so we decided to try it. We were seated straight away but the tables were really close together and you felt a bit squashed. Our server was friendly but seemed to rush us a little bit. I ordered steak, and was told I could choose the accompaniments for it, but when I asked what I... More
