I took my kids here last night. When we got there, we were the only table, and while the place filled up quickly, I understand the management actually had our waitress doing most of the seating, which is frankly ridiculous. Our waitress was literally missing for half the meal (I asked another waitress to find her at one point, and she shrugged and said she couldn't) and when we had a minor emergency and had to go home ASAP, I had to walk all over the restaurant to find the manager, who STILL didn't give me my tab, so it was another ten minutes before I got that. Oh, I was steaming.

Our food wasn't much- the chicken pot pie my daughter ordered was delicious, but my 'filet mignon' was a half-charred, too-thick hunk of meat that wasn't tender at all, and the hot dog my son wanted was so bad, he wouldn't eat more than one bite. That is, once I could talk him into touching anything on his plate, as our meals were delivered on plates hot enough that he burned his finger touching it accidentally. So I had to track down a busboy to get a new plate for him. How does a kitchen send out a kid's meal with a plate hot enough to burn fingers?

Someone said in on the reviews that this place needs Kitchen Nightmares. I don't know about that, but if there's such a thing as Service Floor Nightmares, I hope someone signs them up

Went there to celebrate Mother's Day. They made it memorable, but not in a good way. Buffet was ice cold, apparently all the sternos went out or were never lit. The items that were promised for buffet were not there and what was there was not good. Service was lacking, had to ask for silverware, when we got it, it was dirty. After complaining was unable to find anyone there to take responsibilty. The list goes on and on. Couldn't pay me to go there again.

We went there in mid January for dinner and had a great experience. All three of our dinners (scallops, steaks and pasta) were delicious and we had an attentive waitress. We will be going back soon.

Don't go there, food wasn't good. Small portions too. Terrible service and patrons. Would not recommend at all. A word to the wise is that you are better off just making your own food. .

We had possibly the 2nd worst waitress in the world here at Johnny Apples. She only missed coming in first because the first one also came with a rat at an outdoor restaurant in DC. My husband's drink came first. They didn't have what I ordered first, so I made a second selection. That drink came after my dinner. Our salads arrived uneventful however my dinner came first along with the appetizer. My husband dinner came after I was completely done my dinner. I didn't have the patience for dessert or coffee. We asked for the check, and were delivered with the check but no pen. I had to look for the pen.
Entrees? We both got a seafood combo which was just o.k.The crab legs were extremely overcooked along with the scallops. The fact that we had to eat dinner separately made it less than enjoyable.

One note of caution - if you don't like smoke, don't go here. The smell of cigarettes pervaides even the non-smoking area. I won't be returning.

Yours,
Neveragain

We hadn't been to Johnny Apples since it changed hands and underwent a major remodel. What a difference! It's beautiful and the atmosphere is so relaxing. The service was first class as was the food. I would highly recommend it.
