stopped by the family restaurant on a Monday when one of our favorites were closed. It looks like a typical diner from the outside. We were surprised by the quality of the food. I had a boneless chicken breast with avocado and swiss. It was awesome. The avocado was particularly creamy; my husband had the beef philly; also very good.... More

Live in Ripon and enjoy breakfast here about once a month. Breakfast menu has lots of choices for everyone. Great service and lots of coffee that keeps on coming.

Yummy breakfast items available all day. I had crepes with blueberries, absolutely delicious! Large selection of pies for dessert too...if only I hadn't filled up on those crepes!

Outstanding service and delicious food at a great value. You can get a real meal for what you would pay (or less) for some run of the mill substandard fast food. Highly recommend Ripon Family

First time eating here. The food was much better then we expected; large portions, home made sauces, seasoned & cooked well and home made pies. The service on the other hand wasnt the best; we were seated right away with menus but then maybe 15min later the waitress finally came to take our order. She was nice but not sure... More

This restaurant was great when it was the Red Apple. Ever since it came under new ownership, we have watched the quality slowly go down the tubes. We keep coming back every now and again in the hopes that things have changed, only to completely regret the decision afterwards. We have not had a decent meal here the past 4... More

I eat here nearly every week for breakfast with a group of friends. The food is always tasty and good. One can count on that. I have come for lunch and dinner also and have never been disappointed. Good desserts!

My family stayed at the campground and we came here to eat because we missed McDonald's breakfast cutoff. We were all happy with our meals. Helpings are healthy and prices were reasonable. And we probably only spent just a couple more dollars than we would at fast food place. Staff was very friendly and quick.

The Ripon Family Restaurant, like most of the Family Restaurants I've been to, have excellent food. They serve generous portions for the prices you pay. I recently had the Pepper Steak and it was real seasoned steak. When my family comes to town to visit, the Ripon Family Restaurant is where we eat. With a wide and varied menu, most... More
