Put on your eating pants! The food is good and portions large. If you’re hungry, this is the place to go.

Our server was very attentive. The hostess was prompt and friendly.

Unfortunately, none of us were impressed with the food. Between the four of us, we order the corn chowder, the shrimp/calamari appetizer, the street tacos, the prime rib, the reuben, the bbq bacon burger and the pot roast noodles (I think that's what it was called). My corn chowder was too thick and not very flavorful, and the same could be said about the prime rib. (The mashed potatoes and gravy were tasty.) The apple slaw on the reuben didn't work very well, and was the dominant flavor in the sandwich.

Lovely place, very nice setting, awful food. What can I say, terrible burger-probably the worst I have ever eaten. Nine was so sodden with grease it was inedible and the fries were repulsive

We went for Easter brunch. Although initially service was bad, we were seated for 15 mins and I had to go find someone to take care of us, once our server became aware she had our table everything was good.

We stayed at the Apple Farm hotel, and were happy to find that the restaurant had delicious entrees for dinner (and breakfast the next day). The servers were very good and welcoming. I'd recommend not sitting at the two-person booths in the round room, as at least one of them was drafty. But we asked to be moved and they were very accommodating. It's a pleasant place - relaxing and happy.

Went in for breakfast at 8 am with reservations with expectations of a quiet relaxed breakfast. Was seated right away by a smiling hostess. As we sat down we noticed we were put next to a loud table of young women. Our server took awhile to come get our drink orders but after that she was attentive. The biscuits were warm and delicious. Our food on the other hand was awful and arrived cold. Potatoes cold. Eggs cold. Glad I had orange juice to wash it down with. The food was pricey considering we did not enjoy it. Will not be back and would not recommend.

I had not been since the early 90's but, this was my goto restaurant when I worked up here for a job assignment. I would go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was on my way home with a friend from wine tasting in Paso Robles and I could not pass up The Apple Farm for breakfast! I ordered an omelet and she ordered the hollandaise hash something and with the home fries. The food was not hot and really had no flavor or taste. The biscuit and scone were awesome! I am hoping this was a one-time incident with this meal.

We were visiting the area and looking for a laid back restaurant with good food and great service. We loved the restaurant and our server. We ordered mostly comfort food .. the pot roast was extremely tender and served with grilled veggies and smashed potatoes.... really tasty and a large serving. Others ordered the lamb meatballs and turkey pot pie. Everyone raved about their food. Highly recommend for the ambience, great food and relaxing setting.

The Eggs Benedict was awful. The eggs were hard & the sauce had no taste. The blueberry pancakes had ALL the blueberries in the center of the pancake. The best part of the entire breakfast was the warm scone, the service & that they had Almond Milk for the coffee. The shop was awesome!

Food was prepared like it was for mass distribution. Omelet was flat, no taste and fruit was cut up in small pieces, and hard. No flavor. Not worth the price.

I remember the menu and food being better a few years ago.

We live in the Bay Area, but love San Luis Obispo. We try to visit once every year or two and when we do, we always make it a point to eat at the Apple Farm. All the meals are wonderful and are like homecooked food. The salads are especially fresh and tasty.

Great staff and excellent food! Might be nice to update the paint on the walls with grey tones, but leave all the wall hangings and pictures the same-would give it an updated feel without eleiminating what makes it Apple Farm;)

My pork chop, highly recommended by the waiter, was absolutely tasteless and extremely overcooked. Also, the presentation of my meal was like eating in a cafeteria. The Last time we traveled down to Apple Farm was 7 years ago and I remember the meals were delicious. Last night was a complete disappointment.

This was a cross between Denny’s and Mimi’s Cafe. There weren’t any healthier lunch options, so luckily they were still serving breakfast. The meals were ehh...however, the BISCUIT AND THE BOYSENBERRY JAM was the best biscuit I’ve ever had. So go for the baked goods and you won’t be disappointed.

Stopped in for breakfast to kick off our two day trip to the coast. The ambience and the service were good but the food just wasn’t anything special. Two callouts on the food were the biscuits which were delicious and my wife and daughter shared the corned beef hash and thought it was really really good but the serving size was very small. The food overall needed seasoning. The potatoes and eggs were pretty bland. The ambiance and the store were inviting but the food you could pretty much get anywhere with bigger portions for the amount paid.

My fiancé and I decided to go to the Apple Farm for Christmas dinner. They served a traditional turkey dinner that included bread, drink and pie. We set in the gazebo room or “the Z”. Beautiful ambiance, our waiter James was really attentive but not intrusive. It was an ideal place to go for Christmas dinner. I thought it was a bit expensive for a regular meal but as a Christmas dinner. I guess I can concede the extra cost was worth it. No shopping, cooking and doing dishes for hours. We had a wonderful Christmas dinner. Thank you!

We went for Christmas dinner. Several staff were rude and impatient. I felt hurried to finish and leave. The food was full of sodium and we all felt like we were ballooning up in the evening. It was crowded and several people were talking too loud. There was little to no flexibility in the menu for the day. I have a son with autism and he is not very flexible with the things he will eat. The overall cost was certainly NOT worth the value of the food or poor experience. We will choose somewhere else in the future.

Service was stellar. This the second Christmas dinner here and we will definitely be back next year.
