One of my favorite places but Applewood is closing its doors on December 31. I plan to go there once more before it closes the doors for good....or until a new buyer is found.

Decent buffet but not really worth the drive it took for us to find the place. The fresh cut fruit was on the verge of spoiling. The fruit salad was very good. The only choices for hot vegetables were corn and mashed potatoes. There was a pasta dish which I think was Broccoli Alfredo, but the sauce was all on... More

My family and I met here for brunch. We'd never been before and were not disappointed. The buffet was old-fashioned, American cuisine, which included ribs, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and a variety of salad options. Everything was very reasonably priced and was a great location for a family get-together. There is also a bar, though we didn't try it on... More

Any time you go any where else with him and get the tab, he will bring up the time he bought you the meal at his parents restaurant! I've bought him over 100 free meals because... More

It is located in the country side just outside of town - beautiful surroundings and the food is outstanding. The buffet is well worth the visit - and if you want something more, check out their great menu, everything at a very reasonable price.

We had reservations for Easter Sunday at 1:00, for 11 people. They got us all in shortly after 1:00. Amazing that it went that smooth, on such a busy day and with a large group. We sat next to the Buffet line and got to see how organized they were on Sunday. There was two lines going through the Buffet,... More

We were in Mankato for Easter, and decided to go to Applewood based on a few reviews. The place was packed. Not sure what the draw was here. If this is one of the better buffets in the area, there is a problem. For Easter, one would expect some Easter decor. The tables were all pushed together to form a... More
