The Big Apple Cafe is a bar. If that's all you're expecting then you won't be disappointed. If you want to go somewhere and hang out, play trivia, see a band then this is the place. However, if you're looking for a good meal go elsewhere. They microwave their nachos for goodness' sake. The food is bar food, don't expect... More

We love love their Bean Rolls. They have recently changed their menu so still not too sure about some of them. Liked the old menu but we will see.

Nice place to go with someone during the week, to chill and drink a beer. On Fridays it gets pretty crowded, what is pretty nice if you are looking for a party atmosphere. You can play dart inside or get a table outside if the weather is warm. The bad thing is that sometimes it takes too long to get... More

Back in the day, we had to travel across the state line to get a bean roll from Big Apple. Today it is located in Murray. We took our kids here several years ago and it was still as good as we remembered it in college. Today while doing a college visit with our son, we tried it again. I... More

When in Murray we wanted to try some of the places locals frequent. This was a place recommended by someone we know. We went in the early afternoon for a late lunch and the food was excellent and the portions were generous. We couldn't even finish it all. Our server was super friendly.

I enjoy the Apple for a drink on occasion. It is very smokey throughout the entire place, if you are bothered by cigarette smoke- do not hang out here. I have not eaten here, but the drinks are always delicious and the bar staff is friendly & fast.

Several people recommended we try Big Apple Cafe. Our experience: the food was "meh" and the service was really slow. I'm guessing there are better dining options in town.
