A go to diner with wide range of items to choose from. You find favorites and stick with them. Full service bar but it may be best to stick with wine/beer as waiters or waitresses make the mixed drinks and well... Staff is always pleasant, plenty of parking and seating. Chicken soup is yummy served with warm bread, blueberry pie... More

My husband and I ate there at least 6 times already. The service is good and the food is fresh. This place is also great for the whole family. They can handle large groups by putting tables together banquet style. They also take reservations. Prices are reasonable. Great selection for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Great early bird menu, Friendly atmosphere and good international selection . I especially enjoy the Potato Pancakes or some Greek dinners. Waiters at times need more friendly attitude Call ahead for new late hours.

We were looking for a local (non-chain) restaurant in which to have dinner with our son-in-laws folks so we checked Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We were very pleased and will definitely go back in the future. The menu selections are extensive, and the prices are very reasonable. We had excellent service and chatted a few... More

The food was great. Wait staff was great, asking if everything was ok, removing empty plates promptly. Owner came around saying hello and asking if everything was ok.

My wife and I choose to try Applewood based on a friends recommendation. When we pulled into the lot, we thought they were closed because there was only 1 or 2 cars in the lot. This was a Saturday afternoon (4:00PM) in October. We were going to the Witches Dungeon Museum, right at the Bristol Historical Society. When we entered,... More

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.

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
