We met friends and family here and they easily accommodated 6-8 people - there were groups larger than ours that were also accommodated. It was very busy but they still managed good service with a smile. *Great menu. *Fast service. *Good food. *Large portions. *Friendly staff. *Accommodating. ~Would definitely eat here again and recommend to others!

We eat at Red Apple about twice monthly. It's a popular breakfast restaurant and lines are super long on weekends. All the meals are good but I particularly like the crepes.

I had not been to this restaurant in ten years. Its exactly the same. The food is fine, the prices good, the service good. If you order two eggs, they bring you 4! This is a casual, family experience that has been the same for MANY years.

We have never had an issue here. They are always busy but there are able to seat you quick and don't rush you. Large portions but very good!

Out-of-towners just visiting for the day looking for a sit down breakfast. First off, it was very very busy when we walked in. The Parking lot was full and we were scared there'd be a wait. As soon as we walked in we were immediately sat (group of 5) in a giant booth, which was very comfortable. The service was... More
