I live so close to this place and I keep hearing people raving about it. Well, I finally made it there today for dinner. It's not a bad place, but not anything to rave about in my opinion.

The crowd was young, but not rambunctious, which was a relief. Nothing worse than a bunch of drunk college-age kids being annoying.

Anyways...food was decent. Mainly a burger joint, but you can get sandwiches. Burgers were nothing special. No substitutions or alterations of the menu items apparently. If you're allergic to something, order something else because apparently "no exceptions". Yikes, ok...

Beer list was decent. I had the Hades Ale and North Coast Pranqster. Not a bad selection.

Service was fine. I sat outside and was checked on regularly. My waitress suggested the Hades and I'm glad I listened and went with it. It was a decent brew.

Would I go again? Maybe... But with Fountainhead pretty much outside my building there's really no reason to go Bad Apple. Check it out if you are in the area...but I think there are better beer joints in the area like Fountainhead or Fork.
