Well, we haven't been to Appleby's in years due to several bad experiences in Western Mass and Florida.
That said, I had lunch with an old friend in the Sturbridge, Ma. location. I was quite dubious about this, but my friend knows I will not accept poorly prepared food. In fairness, I should have known my friend, who had lived in Sturbridge for many years would not have steered me wrong. I was pleasantly surprised at their lunch combo's. I had a shrimp and spinach salad and a lemon shrimp pasta. You get to choose from a list of soups, salads and pasta entrées. The food was fine! A nice salad and the pasta wasn't overcooked as it can be. I will give the chain another try.
