What others are saying!

All the side salads are always so good. Having the cheese bread and baked potatoes, where you can add toppings from the salad bar. Had the chicken soup which was very good. I love going to your store to see if there new and exciting products. I love your pumpkin spice pancake syrup, which, I picked up another bottle. Its nice to get out into open spaces after a long winter.

SALLY from Chicago, IL

Absolutely wonderful food. Brought my grandchildren to your weekend breakfast buffet and both picky eaters raved about your food. Great dining experience. Keep doing what you're doing because it's fabulous!

NANCY from Waterford, WI

Your breakfast buffet is wonderful, our favorites include cheesy potatoes, mexican egg cassarole and really everything on the buffet.

WILLIAM from Antioch, IL

The breakfast buffet was great. Also I really liked how the place was decorated, especially the snow & icicles on the ceiling.

DANIEL from Kenosha, WI

I love the consistency - the servers are so responsive, food tasty, the environment is a joy. The place wraps its arms around you and welcomes you home. 

KATHE from Milwaukee, WI

We always have a wonderful time. The food is good and every one is so nice. After we eat there is so many things to see and do. We have been coming to Apple Holler since it first opened. Our daughter was just a little girl, now she is 34yrs. old. Apple Holler is a tradition in our family. It has brought us much joy and wonderful memories. I hope you will be around for many generations to come. Thank you all. 

JANICE from Milwaukee, WI

We visited for the salad bar and it was fabulous. We really enjoyed it and will be back soon to try it again. 

JOE from Mt. Pleasant, WI

Our server was great. She was attentive, but not smothering. I had the avocado bacon omelet and it was outstanding. Big chunks of bacon, chunks of avocado and topped off with cheesy goodness of Swiss! It was WOW!

BARBARA from Sturtevant

EVERYONE is very friendly and treat you like old friends. Husband was buying small jar of applebutter and a young man just commented that for a $1 more you could get twice as much. Neadless to say husband bought the big jar. This young man was also baking pies and talking with us as if we were visiting his home. We don't call this service, just people liking what they do. 

SHARON from Lake Villa, IL

The food was so good. It was the first time there for my son, he had fish/crab cakes/shrimp. So delicious! He loved it!

MICHELLE from Addison, WI

We were treated like family. We feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful restaurant in our area. The food is always wonderful & plenty of it. the plays are so good. The travel group so much fun. The store with fresh items & canned goods. It is a fun place to bring children as well as your adult friends.

KAREN from Racine, WI

Coming in for Friday fish fry with my elderly mother and her blind friend was a wonderful experience this last Friday. The service could not have been any better, and I have to say that everyone who stopped by our table,not just our own waitress was warm and friendly. No one hurried us . We just had a really great time. Thank you so much. I felt bad that I hadn't found out who our waitress was.

FRED from Milwaukee, WI

Our server was excellent and there when we needed her. The food was very tasty and served at the correct temperature. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to Apple Holler and will be back soon! Keep doing what your doing! 

LINDA from New Berlin, WI

How the servers personally greet you by name when you walk in the door -- they go through the extra effort to remember you by name. This makes the customer feel SPECIAL. I also like the many different specials in the buffets that you offer.

PATRICIA from Mt.Pleasant, WI

The buffet food was nice and hot! I got some delicious fruit and vegetables for 99 cents too for being a club member. You can't beat that!

SUSAN from Kenosha, WI

My Daughter and I and a friend thought the show was very entertaining. Elvis brought back many memories. He was so good. Lori was fantastic and had us laughing. I liked the audience participation. And last but not leaste the food was terrific and the servers were outstanding & friendly. Looking forward to coming again.

PATRICIA from Mt. Pleasant, WI

The entire staff was very friendly. Visiting Apple Holler is like visiting a cherished friend.

DANIEL from Brookfield, WI

Early morning breakfast with our grand kids on a cold, snowy day. The kids enjoyed the Henny Penny and Johnny Appleseed breakfasts, including the stories told by the waitress. We also enjoyed the omelettes and my personal favorite, the Apple Walnut French Toast. Great way to conclude a memorable holiday gathering.

KATHY from Kenosha, WI

We always enjoy the service and food at your restaurant. I especially enjoyed the food sampling that you had at your store before the Holidays. I purchased your Captain Rodney's Glaze and made it for guests at Christmas, and everyone loved it. I would have never thought to buy it without sampling it first. I and many of my friends will be buying it in the future we liked it that much.

KATHLEEN from Mt Pleasant, WI

The service is not only excellent; it is exceptional! I felt truly cared for. We had a guest with us who had never been to AH before, and he was very impressed.

CINDY from Darien, IL

My wife and I have always enjoyed our visits to Apple Holler. The food, service, seasonal decorations and the overall atmosphere together can't be beat almost anywhere else. Another plus is the menu selection and related prices. Keep doing what you are doing and may 2014 be as successful or better than 2013.

VINCE from Park Ridge, IL

I love the atmosphere, the smell of baked goods, the people that work there are so nice.

CAROL from Racine, WI

My most recent visit to Apple Holler was for the presentation of the many trips that are planned for the next year. The games we played were quite exciting to take part in and the info that was presented was remarkable!Of course, the planned trips were enticing and the meal was absolutely marvelous! Thanks for all of Apple Holler's involvement in presenting such a fun span of events to us retired visitors!

KAREN from Mt. Pleasant

Our Christmas Shopping Tradition at Pleasant Prairie is that after shopping Phase I of the mall we head over to "Apple Holler" for a relaxing lunch. At Apple Holler we continue our "Christmas Spirit" while we re-energize with appetizers and a great lunch fare. Our server, Tammy made us feel comfortable and made our luncheon experience enjoyable. Christmas shopping and "Apple Holler" go hand-in-hand for our family tradition.

FRANCYNE from Chicago, IL

Hot Caramel Apple Cider was the best I have ever tasted.

JANET from Wallace, MI

 I enjoy your breakfasts and think your regular hashbrowns are the BEST.

PATRICIA from Mt. Pleasant, WI

The best breakfast in the area!

TED from Muskego, WI

The decor is always amazing. The baked pies are the best. I like the apple but my favorite is the dutch cherry or blueberry. A whiff from the bakery really gets those taste buds working. There is so much to shop for in the gift shop, too.

KAREN from Kenosha, Wi

We all (4 of us) had a great time.  Had people from Michigan over the Labor Day weekend and decided to introduce them to "Apple Holler."  Everyone loved the food.   Even bought some of the Strawberry Applesauce.   Soooo Good!!!  That is truly the best ever.  Just wish we had come slightly earlier.  Everything outside was already closed down for the day.   So we went inside the shop where we ate and bought some unusual items.  It was a great day! 

JUDI from Mundelein, IL

Great visit. Had my visitors from Beijing with me...Their children were delighted. The train ride, the puppet show...the food..everything was outstanding! It was their favorite day!

MARYBETH from Racine, WI

My brother and his wife was here from Virginia & since we had taken them to eat there the last time they were here, that is the place they requested to go back to again. They liked the unusal food items. so fresh & different & such a cute place

KAREN from Racine, WI

The weekend breakfast buffet is always amazing and I like how they come around with samples of additional food and drink items to try. The waitstaff is always pleasant and accommodating...they are always clearing the dirty plates and refilling the coffee.

JENNY from Racine, WI

You have the best staff. The food is terrific but the staff is what really makes the place. One of our absolute favorites!

JUDY from East Troy, WI

Everything was on target just like always. We tell everyone about Apple Holler. I hope they do try it.

STEVE from Franklin, WI

Our visit was wonderful in every way. Your staff is friendly and helpful. My family enjoys every visit to your Orchard and restaurant.

KRISTA from Wheeling, IL

I came to have the fish fry, at first I was upset to find out that you no longer offer the all you can eat fish, but once I ordered the 8 pieces and got it all at once and then what I couldnt eat I got to bring home, I think its a way better way to do it and I was no longer upset , I like it better this way....I dont have to wait for 2-3 pieces to come to me and get upset because it was taking to long, I loved it and will be coming back A.S.A.P. , my husband loved having my leftovers and everyone was happy....and my daughter ordered the chicken parm. sandwich on that yummy crunchy bread that was brushed with the garlic butter, her words exacly "MOM!!!!!!! This is the BEST sandwich I EVER ate in my life!" They better not ever take it off the menu! I also tasted a bite and I couldnt believe how wonderful it was! Good job you all keep up the great cooking skills we will be back as often as we can! Love you guys!

TAMMY from Kenosha, WI

My 3 year old grandson loves to visit the animals and play in the play area. It is nice to have someplace so close to take him that isn't just a play park.

BONNIE from Kenosha, Wi

I wanted to pass along a great big THANK YOU for making my daughter’s 6th Birthday Party very special.  Your attention to details and your flexibility with the planning of the party made the day extra special.  The grounds and food were terrific and I know I speak for the 80 plus people we had at the party that it was a wonderful day.  Thank you again for everything and know that I would recommend Apple Holler to any family looking for a fun day out.

TOM from Antioch, IL

Just LOVE this place for its friendliness, charm, and great food. Apple Holler brings back memories of childhood and warm feelings of family gatherings. Peggy and I always enjoy coming to Apple Holler, and we have mentioned it to many of our friends. Have also used Apple Holler as a great place for meetings as well! Thanks Dave and Staff! 

RICK and PEGGY from Kenosha, Wi

We attended a matinee performance of the play "Wally's Cafe" The play was excellent. Well written, the actor and actresses did a great job....comedy is hard because your timing has to be perfect...and theirs was. Our waitress was attentive to all our needs....the Bloody Mary was among the best we've had recently and the food was great.....please add that Pork Chop meal to your permanent menu..... We dine at Apple Holler about twice a month, however this is the first time in several years that we've attended one of the plays....and after this visit...I can guarantee you we'll be back for more plays.....and have already told others to go and see "Wally's Cafe" 

JUDY from Kenosha, WI

We went to the Saturday brunch and the food was outstanding. Very fresh and really good. Your French toast tasted like dessert- it was excellent.

We were driving home from Chicago. Stopped in for caramel apples and an apple pie. As usual we enjoyed them at home. We will head down in another month for lunch or dinner.

SUSAN from Milwaukee, WI


The food was great! I had the turkey dinner, (my favorite), the wife had the salmon, and our friends had prime rib pot pie, which they said was excellent.

We took some friends with us who hadn't been there in a while, and they reminded themselves to make another visit in the near future!

Great service and down home cookin'! Next time we'll save room for apple pie!

DAVE from Franklin, WI

We actually visited for the Hoppy Easter celebration, which our kids really enjoyed, but have been in the restaurant in the past and have never been disappointed. The brunch is excellent!

We had to come to try the corned beef reuben sandwich, my favorite, and I was not disappointed. The best I have ever had. My husband had your fish fry, always the best. We have never been disappointed when we come to visit. Our favorite restaurant.

GARY from Franklin, WI

Food was excellent as always! I brought a friend and tried a couple new thing. She will be back for the chicken and dumplings. It reminded her of Grandma's! The service was great and refills of our coffee and cider kept us warm and content on a bitter cold day. Thanks again!

CHRISTINE from Milwaukee, WI

When you're in the mood for a weekend breakfast buffet, Apple Holler is worth the trip. Try the fresh fruit, assorted fruit toppings (the cranberry/apple is my favorite) for pancakes and French toast, cornbread, fritters, cheesy hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, delicious quiche, ham, bacon, sausage and more! The service is friendly and our coffee cups were kept full.

SHARON from Milwaukee

The steak was tender and perfectly spiced. It didn't need a drop of sauce or speck of salt. The hot apple cider hit the spot on a cold night. The staff was friendly and attentive without hovering. We enjoyed visiting your establishment and will do so again. 

JANE from Milwaukee, WI

Your breakfast buffet was outstanding. You have such gourmet type of foods.

DARCY from Kenosha, WI

Ruth from Lake Villa, Il
I just wanted to let you know how wonderful our sleigh ride on December 23 was. The weather could not have been better. Your employees were personable, informative, and helped make our sleigh ride a memorable experience. And, the mother-daughter team of horses worked very had to pull us around the orchard. We loved having a bon-fire for the group that had to wait for the second sleigh ride. The children roasted marshmallows and drank the hot chocolate that was provided. Because of the nice weather, we didn't have to stay inside the barn too much. But, it was nice knowing we has someplace to warm up if needed. Thank you for providing the perfect start to our holiday celebration. A good time was had by all -- so good that we've talked about making it a new family tradition. I tell everyone they need to add a sleigh ride to their winter agenda. It is a memory my extended family will cherish.
Jodi Kuhl, Kenosha
It does not have to be the holiday season to take a sleigh ride and we have found the perfect location. Visit Apple Holler in Sturtevant, WI for an old fashion fun ride through their breathtaking landscapes. Bundle up and sit close as you enjoy the gifts of nature whizzing by. So relaxing. Hot cider or hot chocolate are included.
