“The "Pub" is back!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Happy at last that the venue at Apple Valley Lake is being run by a professional. This local watering hole is the anchor of the lake's summer resort season and a place to warm hearts and hands during the winter. With better-than-average food (including tasty ribs that fall off the bone), a friendly staff, family atmosphere and three dining areas (café, bar & outdoor patio), the "Pub" is back!

“Worth a try”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

Good solid menu, clean and comfortable family place with friendly staff. Food is ok. Fish was frozen not fresh. Fries are fresh and a feature not to miss. Meatloaf had a little kick.

“New Years Eve comedy show”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Attended the show last year at the Parkside and now at the Bad Apple Pub. We had a blast again. A decent prime rib meal and very funny comedy show for $70 for 2, can't beat it

“Finally a decent place to eat near Apple Valley”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We've been here several times recently and enjoyed everything we've tried. Portions are generous. Good selection. Very tasty burgers. Our friend loved the Tortilla Soup and the Pretzel buns. Friendly staff. Suggestion - the bar section tends to be noisy. If you're looking for a quieter experience, eat in the dining room.

“Bad Apple not so good”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

We have a summer home in Apple Valley and used to frequent the "Pub" back when it was called that. The food was always great, and the staff and bartenders top notch. I can't count how many owners it has been through since then, but they still just cant get it right. The bar is beautiful, but the bartenders are slow and rude. (except for Tuesday night Stacy is awsome). The food isn't that great. I'll stick with the "Howard Hilton" where the food is incredible and the staff is always smiling & FAST!
