We eat at Applebee's all the time back home, but the sampler was almost $30.00. We wanted to order drinks, however, didn't want to have sticker shock so we stuck to water. Service was great but just too expensive.

The food was tasty as always but took a little bit longer that normal to be delivered to us. The atmosphere was nice and pricing was standard so overall, quite a nice dinner.

Didn't go to New York City to eat at an Applebee's but after wasting money consecutive days at the Hilton needed a change! Good cheap food and no wait for breakfast! The Hilton next door was 3 times higher and food was about the same!

Breakfast in Times Square; fresh omelet and nice pancakes. Surprisingly they were served with french fries. Not the best Bloody Mary, where was the celery?

A pit stop for lunch on our first day exploring the city found us in Applebee's - I've seen it in movies so decided it would be a good one to try. It was good..food was your typical chain restaurant type but it was tasty and we'd return again.

My son and I went here for a late dinner and what a SCAM, food was microwavable, EXPENSIVE and to make things worts, service was even WORST!.At the end, we both ended with a meal that we could not eat ( it was chewable) we paid $60 ( for an 11 yr and an adult) and we left hungry.

Although Times Square is very busy... We were able to get a seat. The menu was limited and challenging to find items that matched our attempts to eat somewhat healthy. The food was average but service was good. There are better options around but is you are in a hurry, it'll do.

2 level restaurant. Festive and clean. However...the prices are ridiculous!! Don't even bother. Service was fine.

For the price you pay, the food and staff is fairly average. You will have much nicer meals elsewhere if I'm honest.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
