Our party of 4 visited twice - once for breakfast and once after a show. Both times the place was busy but the staff were excellent and patient with us (yes, patience in New York!). As for the food, well, it's Applebee's, so you know what to expect. We've been to the States a few times now and Applebee's have never let us down and this one maintained that proud record. Good, simple food, excellent service and reasonably priced. What's not to like?

We chose this restaurant because it had a good breakfast choice and would cater for one of daughters gluten/lactose intolerance. She could have eggs and bacon. We chose ham and cheese omelette and egg and cheese bowl with sausage. Free refill on coffee. The restaurant was dated and the tables a bit sticky but the service was good and friendly. Reasonably priced and good location.

After seeing a broadway show at Madison Square Garden, my family and I dined at this Applebees for a late dinner. We were glad to be able to get inside and get seated quickly on this cold December night. It was about ¾ filled as we thawed out by the window overlooking the street scenes on 50th below. We ordered sodas and lemonades. For entrees we ordered a veggie burger with fries, chicken picata with rice, and the kids ordered cheeseburgers with fries and cheese chicken nuggets with applesauce. The applesauce was mistakenly substituted with apple slices, which was easily corrected when the server came back around. The rice was good until a produce price tag was discovered, causing a loss of appetite. Once we got the servers attention, they apologized and brought out a new entrée. It was a busy environment, with servers rushing all around trying to accommodate everyone. Other than those meal errors, we had a pretty good meal. In typical Manhattan fashion, everything was priced higher than expected. The experience was okay and we enjoyed our time at this Applebee’s in a no rush environment.

Terrible, terrible, and beyond terrible experience. Staff rude and incompetent. We were looking forward to our lunch there as we are familiar with other locations across the US, but, goes without saying, given how the hostess treated us, we skipped and went to the Olive Garden instead. BEST. DECISION. EVER.

The restaurant was located across from our hotel so we went a couple of times on our recent trip. I had choc chip pancakes and blueberry ones another day. Both times they were top notch big fluffy pancakes with a nice dollop of cream. Yum!

My wife had the two eggs on both visits and loved them. You get unlimited tea and coffee for $1 with food. Coffee was ok!

We had the $30 option for dinner one night. Food was a bit slow coming out but again was fantastic.

Happy hour on pints etc. was great with dinner also. Place was very busy any time we were in which was a good sign.
