What others are saying!
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!
Your breakfast buffet is wonderful, our favorites include cheesy potatoes, mexican egg cassarole and really everything on the buffet.
The breakfast buffet was great. Also I really liked how the place was decorated, especially the snow & icicles on the ceiling.
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.
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.
We visited for the salad bar and it was fabulous. We really enjoyed it and will be back soon to try it again.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
I've always enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, good service, food, and you always get a healthy portion of food.
The entire staff was very friendly. Visiting Apple Holler is like visiting a cherished friend.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I love the atmosphere, the smell of baked goods, the people that work there are so nice.
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!
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.
Hot Caramel Apple Cider was the best I have ever tasted.
I enjoy your breakfasts and think your regular hashbrowns are the BEST.
The best breakfast in the area!
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.
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!
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!
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
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.
You have the best staff. The food is terrific but the staff is what really makes the place. One of our absolute favorites!
Everything was on target just like always. We tell everyone about Apple Holler. I hope they do try it.
Our visit was wonderful in every way. Your staff is friendly and helpful. My family enjoys every visit to your Orchard and restaurant.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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"
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.
I brought a friend that had never been there before. She loved her food and her whole experience. She loved the gift shop and bought a few gifts for other friends. I sold her on one of my favorite restaurants too.
Please keep up the excellent food and the very friendly service.
I loved the pulled pork sandwich with the apples on top...what a delight to the taste buds! Lunch was great.
Best food around.
All the staff are very friendly, and say hello, even if they're not waiting on us. The restaurant and gift shop area are so charming.
We eat at Apple Holler about twice a month because we like the good food, friendly staff, ambiance and great prices.
We were so happy to qualify for the discount on the buffet. Everything about our visit was wonderful. The food was great, our waitress was exceptional, (I should have asked her name), the atmosphere is just so cozy. Hope there will be a special on the Fri. fish fry sometime. We always enjoyed that so much.
The apple-walnut-chicken salad was fabulous!!
We always have such cheerful waiters and that makes the food even tastier!!!!
The food was delicious and my favorite part is the Apple cider donuts. The staff was all so kind and welcoming. I have nothing negative to say. I absolutely love Apple Holler. It's one of my favorite restaurants.
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.
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!
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!
Love the country feeling and the relaxed family feeling when at the restuarant and gift shop. A peaceful place to stop at.
We always enjoy the friendly cozy atmosphere at Apple Holler, and we like the festive feel of both shop and restaurant. *I really like being able to find regional-specialty gifts for our friends and family who live outside the Midwest area. THANK YOU!
We both tried the full dinner this visit- Turkey and stuffing / corned beef and cabbage. They were outstanding!
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.
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!
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.
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.
Your breakfast buffet was outstanding. You have such gourmet type of foods.
Dining room service and staff were great! We were offered a 2nd helping of the complimentary blueberry corn bread (which we absolutely loved!!). The food was excellent and the restaurant was BEAUTIFULLY decorated for Christmas, creating such a warm and cozy atmosphere. We'll be back!
We always enjoy our visits to Apple Holler. The food is excellent and we always take home a pie. They are the best! This time we purchased several for our friends, family and neighbors. Everyone was pleased! YUMMY!
Apple Holler is such a warm welcoming place, it's like being at home with friends & family around enjoying wonderful food.
Everything is great. Love the fact that you are at the Farmers Market in Mundelein, since I work across the street and can pick it up there. My husband loves your chicken pot pie!
The food was fabulous, best pork chop I have EVER eaten!! The decorations were amazing!! Wanted to go home and duplicate the decorations you had in the ladies room.
The food, the atmosphere, everything, including the friendly servers was GREAT!
Our visit went well as expected. The service was excellent. I believe our server's name was Connor. He did an excellent job with the entire order including refills with our coffee and water. The food we ordered was excellent. The blueberry cornbread was very good. We also purchased a few items up front including a small apple pie for our dessert with our Christmas dinner.
The decor in the dining room and throughout Apple Holler was beautiful. The atmosphere is always so homey and friendly. Debbie was our server and what a great server she makes. She was very attentive but not annoying.
We love EVERYTHING about our Apple Holler visits -- the friendly staff and excellent food and the country atmosphere! Change NOTHING!
