This was our first time eating at Apple Farm. It was a great experience and would recommend the restaurant. The gift shop is fun as well.

Amazing food, great service. We went on Valentine's day and they even had a singing quartet to entertain guests at their tables

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!

Good place for a nice breakfast. A little pricey but service was good.

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;)

Love their breakfasts! Excellent and super friendly service with large portions of deliciousness. Especially love their scores, muffins, and boysenberry preserves.

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.

Ordered the banana pecan pancakes - they were amazing! I’ll definitely be going back when I’m in town.

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!

Two of us had great meals; the third person was not happy with his prime rib - said it was tough, but refused to send it back.

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.

The Christmas dinner we had on the 25th was fantastic. Everything was cooked to perfection.
Service was stellar. This the second Christmas dinner here and we will definitely be back next year.

It’s a wonderful place to come for dinner. Every time we are in Sa Luis Obispo, we have a meal here. Also, I love all of the beautiful thimgs that they have for sell.
