We have been patronizing Apps for more that 20 years. Weekly specials, out with friends, couples. My husband and I decided to go for the prime rib they offer on Monday nights. Well I personally thought it was going to be a small portion of meat for $21.95. The prime rib was a very good size and it came with... More

App's turned out to be the perfect place for a nice, quiet Mother's day meal for my favorite mom in the world. Everything from cocktails, the wine, appetizers to dessert was just great. Our booth was in the perfect cozy location. Quiet and elegant. Just what we were looking for. Our entrees were the stuffed shrimp ( huge portion )... More

The menu and food here are very good. Portions are big. The last time I was here, I got the prix fixe dinner (3 courses) and was stuffed. I highly recommend their broccoli rabe with sausage! Service is hit or miss. It just depends on the server.
