We walked in for lunch and five employees shouted hello. We sure felt welcome. That day we had lunch. The chicken salad sandwich was stuffed with lots of chicken. A side of fries was huge and tasty. My husband had a Ruben which he said was very good. After that greeting, we went for dinner. They have many early bird... More

I ordered a prime rib here about 15 years ago that was incredibly good and I believe it was priced at just $9.99 which I thought was a very good price. The entire meal was better than what I have had at much more expensive restaurants. It is not very fancy but, the food is great and so are the... More

I also ordered rye toast, which was buttered as soon as it came out of the toaster. I had also ordered grape-nut custard this was very delicious and the custard... More

A restaurant with diner food where you can go after church or to met friends and talk. Generally and older crowd or families with kids. Good honest food ... no frills. We love the breakfast fare and meet friends, as you can relax and talk and do not feel rushed. Great sandwiches, panini and good daily specials (soup and vegetable... More

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.
