If you're looking for authentic Southern dining in a natural country setting, this is a great choice! We loved our table overlooking the apple orchard with mountains in the background, as well as the rustic menu with specialties like chicken and dumplings and country fried steak. We ordered fried chicken, along with homemade mashed potatoes, slaw and fried apples from the orchard. All of it was mouthwatering! The service was friendly and efficient as well. Don't forget to visit the barn on your way out for an array of fruits, jams and other products.
Visited after 3 p.m. on a Thursday in October. We were surprised at just how busy they were. We decided to get our shopping over with before sitting down to eat. They have an amazing selection of apples and, even though they were short-staffed and busy, several employees offered assistance and to answer any questions we might have. We explained that we were looking for a good snacking apple and what we typically liked and she recommended the carousel and cosmic crisp apples. We purchased both, along with some tomatoes and a purple bell pepper to try. The restaurant was clean, well maintained and beautifully nestled within the orchard and surrounding mountains. We were seated promptly next to one of the windows (beautiful views), orders taken and food served in a timely manner with a friendly smile and service. I enjoyed the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and fried apples - hands down the best fried chicken I've had in a really long time. The sides were okay. My mother had the chicken and dumplins with green beans and fried apples. She said her chicken and dumplins were delicious and, since I helped myself to a bite, I concur! 😋 Yum! Unfortunately, they didn't have any apple fritters available for us to try so we decided to get a couple of fried apple pies to take home instead, along with our large amount of leftovers from the generous portions that were served. The fried pies weren't bad, but neither of us really cared for them. The crust was fairly thick and the filling reminded me more of a chunky applesauce than the type of filling I'm used to in a homemade fried pie. The carousel apples and tomatoes we purchased were delicious. We didn't enjoy the taste of the cosmic crisp apples quite as much. I wish I could tell you about the purple bell pepper. Unfortunately, my malamute must have thought I bought it for him and snatched it off the table for himself. HE gives it 5 out of 5 stars!!! Bless his heart! Overall, both of us are definitely looking forward to returning. The fresh produce was wonderful and reasonably priced as were our meals. Hope to eventually get to try the apple fritters as well as the purple bell pepper my fur baby enjoyed so much!
Food was awesome and definitely home cooked. You get your money's worth, especially on the Fried Chicken. I was a little disappointed that I only had 2 dumplings in my Chicken and Dumplings but they were delicious and just the luck of end of the day and pot!
Cute little side trip for some excellent country fixins! Get the chicken and dumplings. Love the market there and the fresh apple turnovers and fresh veggies. We also took home some delicious apple butter!
We always find a great variety of apples and produce. The people on the floor are exceptionally knowledgeable about which variety is best for what you want. The restaurant is so popular! You can fill up on homemade cooking.
