    Our food was delicious. Highly recommend stopping here to eat, then walk around a bit before continuing your trip. The views are beautiful and refreshing. There is a large store selling all kinds of fresh fruit, veggies, nuts, and lots of other delicious things. There is a very nice candy store with lots of your candy favorites and many you couldn't even imagine. I highly recommend stopping by even if you have to go a little out of the way.

    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.

    Wonderful experience for the whole family! This takes me back to my childhood of going to pick apples in the orchard, eating all the fresh food, and visiting the shop after for all the local goods. There is also a candy shop, which unfortunately was not open at this time. I guess that gives us an easy reason to come back soon!

    *Update* Returned with family on 12/21/22. Restaurant wasn't too busy. I had the chicken and dumplings and the rest of my family had the fried catfish. The dumplings were great and everyone else said the catfish was delicious and not to bother using the tartar sauce - not needed. Also purchased another apple to try from next door. For us at least, the ever crisp apple turned out to be a very tasty choice! Picked up a pack of fried peanuts to try as well - good - taste like roasted peanuts. Original review: 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 dumplings with green beans and fried apples. She said her chicken and dumplings 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!

    Wow what a meal ! Awesome food and people. A must try if your in this neck of the woods. They are open daily 11am to 5 pm. We had lunch, and have had the breakfast the last time we visited. Plus they have a market you can buy fresh produce, and anything to do with apples.
