I have been eating at the Apple Barrel for many years, both dinner and lunch. The food is consistently very good to excellent. Since Rick Vincent began cooking there, the food is even better and the variety has increased. This is a nice country restaurant with outside dining during warmer weather. It is usually crowded at peak meal times, so... More

Apple Barrel is an amazing little country store and cafe. They have everything you can imagine and the food is to die for. We have been going for a long time and even had a private party there. The staff is always happy and friendly. We always take visiting family and friends and recommend it to everyone we can.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at this unique cafe at the back of an adorable gift shop. The food was tasty, clever ingredients put together in unique ways. They even have wine and beer. Perfect stop for us just off of our Route 20 tour.

picked this place for lunch on a chance. I liked the setting it had a country store with indoor and outdoor dining. I ordered a specialty chicken sandwich with veggies and avocado. Delicious! Wait staff were helpful. Nice place!

Alert readers should notice that I've reviewed This restaurant before. So, I've been back and I thought I'd review it again because it's just that good and I'd think some people might benefit from my mentioning the consistent quality of the experience. We were there again for dinner and the menu has changed (as it should) to add seasonal/cultural items.... More
