Reviewed yesterday NEW

As always with Applebee's the service and the food were great. Interesting building, unlike the Midwest where the buildings are all single level, this one had a second floor. Convenient to Times Square, was quick and easy on my way to the theater

Came from the airport and checked in to a nearby hotel, and was hungry. This restaurant had ample space and no line outside, so we went in. Service was friendly to us and our toddler with a stroller. Steak was average. Serving for kid's menu item was well-portioned.

Our waiter ( was it Nate or Dane?? I forgot...) insisted that the $22.99 was a "special" per person each! WHATTTTT!!!Participating locations ONLY?? PLEASE!! why... More

Came here for dinner after the place we had planned was queued outside the door - it was raining so we ran in here. The ambience and service was great, and the food very tasty! Our one slightly negative thought was that it was quite expensive, however, this could have been due to the location (near Times Square). Overall, it... More

I've holidayed in Orlando many times & we always head for Applebee's as we love the food, atmosphere & value offered. We visited the other Applebee's on 42nd St and although not quite as good as any in Orlando, it was perfectly fine and the food was as good as always. 2 days later we decided to visit this restaurant...

We visited an Applebees a couple of weeks ago on Texas and it was amazing and so our expectations where quite high when we visited Applebees in New York and we were extremely disappointed, service was slow and unfriendly, and we spent $50 on a main and had to go find something else to eat afterwards, it was not very...

My wife went to her conference and I was left to fend for myself. Staying in Mid-town walk out the door and ended up infront of Applebee's. As soon as I entered I was felt welcomed. The hostess for lunch that day made me feel so welcomed.. I order a cheeseburger and coke..It was very good and came out fast... More

Visited a different applebee's five years ago and thought it was good and reasonably priced....fast forward 5 years and we go here...food was overpriced and inconsistent with a couple of the family getting the same meals however they were completely different! Waiting staff weren't very attentive - only thing making this place good was our family's company! To be honest... More

That is what is written on the window and it is huge, but service remains of quality and the food is great. I would go for a burger, which, I know has a lot of calories but is totally worth it. You can either sit on the right side at the bar and have your food and drinks served there... More

We had both a breakfast and a dinner in Applebees of which there are two a couple of blocks from each other in Times Square area. Both meals were very good and very reasonable in price, they also serve tea and have wifi to catch up on your posts from the UK

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
