A lot of food

While I did enjoy my meal at Red Apple, I will definitely have to order less food next time. The portions are huge and for me, the food is heavy. My mother in law and I ordered the same thing - - - scrambled eggs, potato pancakes, and sausage. She somehow almost ate everything. I made a dent... read more

Breakfasts are the best. From pancakes to bacon and eggs. All done great along with the service. Can be very crowded around lunch.

If a great breakfast is on your to do list, this is the place to go. The Red Apple not only has the best pancakes and French toast, but offers wonderful Eggs Benedicts, giant omelets, Blintz's, and double yoke eggs! We dine here almost every Friday morning! For the best bang for your buck and a delicious meal, head to... More

I visited here a few times while I was in town with family and it was always busy. The servers know how to handle the crowds and the service and food is always wonderful!

Whenever we are in the area we stop at this restaurant. It is hard to pick a favorite dish. All of their eggs are double yolk! If you order egg benedict you will have two big slices of ham with 4 egg yolks. If you order plain eggs-be prepared-4 double yolks. I recently had crepes with caramel sauce and pecans.... More

Went for lunch with my niece. First time here for both of us. We were both quite hungry and left completely full and happy with the meals and service. I wound up taking half of my burger home. It's nice to find a place that still includes a cup of soup with lunch. This place only does breakfast and lunch... More

Big Sunday crowd but the service was as if we were the only ones in the place. Thanks, Cassie! It was obvious all the staff is "on their game. " Lots of yummy choices on the menu, potato pancakes to crepes to eggs to skillets, and the coffee cup was never less than half full. Did I say thanks Cassie?
