We have been coming to Applewood for years. We have tried other local options like Amici's and Patxi's, but we always return to Applewood because it is our favorite. We have eaten at the restaurant, very low key, casual (a bit outdated decor) and we have taken it to go as well (from Applewood 2-go across the street). We have... More

I used to go to Applewood exclusively for pizza for several years, then I discovered Paxti's and Amici's and the romance was over. I hadn't been back to Applewood in almost 2 years. I stopped in one night for dinner with my family and realized again why I used to be a regular. The pizza is delicious. The Milano and... More

Great pizza, delicious toppings. I usually prefer thin crust, however, Applewood turns out a great pizza! What a nice surprise. Bonus, it travels well (unlike some local, pricey competitors) for home consumption.

For upscale seating and wine, we go to Amici's, for better pizza we go to Round Table. I especially like their Vegetarian Gourmet. On Tuesday's they offer 30% off. There was a large family gathering of at least 14 there who obviously make it a regular thing. They weren't eating the VegGourmet.

Always a treat to go there with my kids. Try the langos -- a Hungarian specialty - fried dough with garlic and salt.. The pizza is great -- possibly because the dough mixture used might have something in common with the langos. Also a great selection of beers. Decor needs some modernization - old style dark wood, plastic plants but... More

The pizza ranges from very good to excellent but service is sloppy, impersonal and often downright rude. We only use it for take-out.

It's got an authenticity to the place. Sadly the pitchers of beer went up to a "normal" price - before they were small and incredibly cheap. Good selection of beer too. Now they are small and just reasonably priced. Pizzas are good and filling. Like to go with a group and push tables together etc.

Applewood makes a decent straight-ahead pizza. The crust is not "thick crust" but it's not "thin crust". The atmosphere is red-table-cloth italian from 30 years ago. The owners are Hungarian, which is why there's Goulash on the menu. Regrettably, the pizza world has moved on, with Howie's in PA, and Amici's around the corner, and Vesta in RWC, Strada in... More
