On Tuesday July 18, 2007 my family of two brothers, two parents, my nephew and I stopped to have lunch at this restaraunt. It was ten minutes before our waitress came and brought us menus. She then took our order and returned promtly with drinks. It was at this point that the experience went down hill. We sat and waited for over an hour and still no food. I asked another waitress if she could tell me when we could I expect to recieve our order, at which point she said she didn't know and walked away. Another customer had told us that the cooks and half the wait staff were outside smoking in back. At this point it had been an hour and twenty minutes-we left. To our dismay the wait staff was outside with the cooks talking and smoking. I made an attempt to talk to a manager, but was told there wasn't one on duty. I would not recommend this place to anyone!
We came in when it was not busy and the people who came in AFTER us already got their food before we even got coffee or the same shared waitress. Once she actually GOT to our table I got out half of my order before the manager called her away and then she forgot to come back. We wasted forty five minutes to an hour before leaving.
This is a 24 hour resturant and they should probably not be. We rolled in at 10:30 pm and it took too long to be seated in an empty Diner the service was minimal to non existant and no refills unless you found the drink yourself. The food is diner quality and above diner prices. I would say that it is a low end Denny's. Good luck if you want to eat here. you may or may not get good service and quality?
We went to the Apple Peddler for breakfast when we were in Newport on vacation. We had to stand and wait for a table so long, we almost walked out the door. I wish we had left. The place was practically empty, but we had a hard time just getting the waitress to take our order. It took an eternity for her to get us a cup of coffee. Forget about refills. We had to get up and find the pot of coffee ourselves. Eventually we did get our food. It was average breakfast diner food and not very good prices. Definitely not worth the wait!
