“Great Chicken Fried Steak”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Apple Annie's is a family style restaurant which has a good following of locals and gets a lot of travelers from Hwy. 99. The food is good, the prices are reasonable and the service was just a notch below outstanding. My only complaints were that, on a Friday evening at 7:00 pm. they were out of the soup of the day, split pea, and the vegetable which accompanied the chicken fried steak was canned green beans, a definite detraction from the rest of the meal.
The chicken fried steak was delicious, as were the mashed potatoes, gravy and the biscuit. The prices were reasonable and the service was very good. I'll definitely go back if I'm in the area at meal time..

“Nice Diner”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

From the greeter to server, all personnel were very nice. Good menu selection at reasonable prices. Most important, the food was very good and my wife would recommend the apple turnover for desert.

Home cooking, nice atmosphere. Just right after a long day's drive. Also had a delicious omelet in the morning.

“Good honest food”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Staying at the Best Western just a short walk from Apple Annie's so this seemed like a good option for dinner, especially as they offer 10% off for guests staying at BW. The service was friendly and the food was pretty good with generous portions. The steaks were nicely cooked and over all a very good meal for the money. Nothing fancy, just good honest food.

“Decent dinner - priced right”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This was chosen for being handy for our hotel - easy walking distance.
Reception is a bit dull and the big barn of a dining area has the charm of a factory cafeteria.
The lighting needs a complete make over.
On a positive note the serving staff were warm and friendly.

The food was excellent - don't miss the bread/ muffins - the omelette with chicken is five star
