Super yummy stop while in Macon. Our waitress Brenda was great! Best homemade onion rings around. This was my first time here but I’ll definitely be back!

We had an amazing experience. The menu had lots of options, all/if not most homemade. The best homemade potatoe chips I've had. Our waitress Brenda was fantastic. She's suggested the onion rings and she didnt steer us wrong. I will be eating there again.

We were very happy with our meal at the Apple Basket. Our server, Brenda, met all our needs. Tables were spaced apart and masks were being worn which was important to us. The tenderloins were wonderful - the jumbo sized were huge. Of course, the...pie is always good. We had chocolate and coconut which couldn't be beat.More

This place has great food and service. Brenda was our server and she gave us excellent service. We have been there 2 times now during this Covid 19 deal and both times the food and service was excellent. They are doing a great job of...keeping the social distancing. They were fast with the food as well. We came with a group of 6 the first time and then just of the two of us. It's a lovely drive up there. We will be back!!!More
