New look but they made some culinary changes too.

New updated look and nice tables outside for the cooler weather. The chicken salad has a new style and taste. Chunky chicken with apples and herbs but not as flavorful as before. A little dry. The potato salad was my biggest favorite before and when a friend said they changed it, i was please... read more

We visited this place on 7/24/15. My son has a diary allergy and I asked if their bread had any milk ingredients in it. 3-4 employees didn't know the answer, including one who I thought was the manager. One employee told me that "Wheat is probably the closest we have." But they didn't know. That raised an eyebrow on my... More

See previous review for previous visit. Tried again; same result. There is just no meat on a sandwich that the cost should cover more than two{2} shaved pieces of ham. Service is friendly, but just a bit slow at lunch. Airy seating area and outside is comfortable, though view is of parking area. Keep trying, new owners; I am sure... More

My wife and I have been going to Apple Creek for years. We loved the food and friendly atmosphere. Since the management has changed, I was curious if the new place would be as good. Well, no worries on that account. The food is still excellent and the service is even better. I was impressed with the new décor and... More

I visited Apple Creek Cafe for lunch yesterday after several friends have mentioned for months how good the food was. I am a creature of habit so I usually go to the same places week after week. I arrived to find the restaurant much different than one might expect. The atmosphere was bright, the staff very friendly and I learned... More

I must say that the chicken salad is probably our most popular item on the menu. We worked very hard to get every ingredient just right. Please come see us again. We really appreciate the nice things you had to say. Thank you Morgan More

I went there over a year ago and was disgusted by not only the service, but the food as well! Back then, there were two huge disgusting cooks in the kitchen (i almost expected a cigarette to be dangling from his mouth) and an extremely rude cashier at the front counter. So rude, in fact, that i left without ordering... More

Two of us shared the Kentucky Brown which was made with slow roasted turkey cooked in house, served over sour dough and toppings! Wow!!! Something new daily.

My husband and I each had the half/half tuna with salad. The amount of tuna served on roll was the equivalent if a tbl of tuna. The irony is that both of us are small eaters but we went away hungry.

Wow! We don't get that complaint a lot. We use a large scoop for the salads so no one should ever have only a tablespoon full of food. Sorry you didn't enjoy it. Morgan More

I had lunch at the Apple Creek Cafe on June 5th. My friend and I both had a taco salad. The portions were huge and the food tasted wonderful. The staff is very friendly. Loved the new colors and the outdoor patio furniture looks awesome. It's a great place to go and have lunch at a reasonable price, but also... More
