Not the best hamguerguer I've eater, but it was good. The service was good but the price was really high and we were eating more from this place.

Mediocre food and service. My husband and I had tworked entrees and shared with each other. The lime chicken with rice was okay and so was the chicken pasta. Service was so so.

I came to this restaurant today as part of a group trip that included my coworkers and teenagers (to whom we serve as mentors). The restaurant was a quick stop to have some food before going to Madame Tussaud's for the group trip. After we were all seated, an Applebee's employee came over addressed us. He said something along the... More

My cousin and I came here and were surprised they were packed on Thanksgiving Day. However, the service was not that great. We had to wait long times before the waitress checked on us and refreshed our drinks. The prices here are ridiculous and their menu don't have a 2 for 20 like other Applebees I been to have. I...

Went in for lunch today and received the worst customer service from the staff. They were all talking in the corner and didn't seem to want much to do with us. The food/drink was horrible as well. I had the American burger which was over cooked and had no sauce or onions on it. My partner had the Mac n... More

I went here for breakfast, reasonable prices and is a safe bet for people that haven't been to New York before that do not want to wander around looking for the hidden gems when they just arrive in the city. There are tablets on the table for kids to play games (which are at additional cost). Servicing staff are in... More

I popped in here for so for some lunch. Wasn't that busy at the time for the location we were in. The service was very good and so was the food. I had the fiesta lime chicken and my wife had a lunch deal 1/2 sandwich and 1/2 pasta. Both were faultless.

We visited Applebee's prior to going to a show at the Lyric Theatre, directly opposite. It was very busy and we were given a seat close to the entrance. This is not a problem when customers use the revolving doors but when the side door is opened a gale blows in!! Our waiter was friendly and helpful The food was... More

This was good food, great service and reasonably priced. Set us up until the evening. It was also great to get out of the rain!

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.
