Went here for dinner tonight. Had the Open Turkey sandwich, which came with Mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, salad, and warm bread. Everything was hot and tasted excellent and portions too large to finish. Service was also excellent. Will definitely be going back!

Took my grand daughter for breakfast, very busy place, but didn't have to wait long. Does get confusing with checkout in the same area you come in -hard to tell who had to pay and who was waiting for a table.

The customer service is great and always has been. Of course due to economic standards they have had to increase prices, mildly. The portions could be a tad bit bigger. It's worth to visit again and it would be even better if they returned to their 24hr format.

Applewood could be classified as your typical diner except for the specials on the menu. You never know when you'll go in and they are offering exceptional cooked lamb or another great meat. Their soups are generally very good and taste homemade. The owner is extremely friendly and interested in how your meal was.

Applewood has a menu like a typical diner, very adventuresome and extensive. Good coffee and they keep it coming. All the breakfast fare is just great as one would expect. It is a great place after church and for the most part, one can get a table more easily here than at other breakfast restaurants.

Great food at a better-than-affordable price. Best part of this experience was my waitress, Kathy. She is a fabulous professional who cared for me like a great waitress should. Ask for her!

Applewood has been around for decades, It is comfort food home style. The lunch specials are very well priced with ample portions. The food ranges from good to very good, with an occasional yummy surprise. For about $8 you can get an entrée with soup ( upcharge for salad) and dessert. They have a large menu an frankly I have...
