It was opened as a restaurant by the Westesdorf family in 1972, and they continue the tradition of great food in a nostalgic atmosphere to this day.

The Happy Apple Inn offers a mouthwatering array of entrées & a house specialty of prime rib, with an Emperor's Club cut of 40 juicy ounces. Your choice of drink from the full bar to complement the meal will leave you fully satisfied.
