The Bad Apple Pub
There is nothing more inviting or reassuring of repeat business than an establishment that serves killer food and treats its customers like family. Our March Local Catch, The Bad Apple Pub does exactly that and it does so consistently.
Steve and Niki McCurdy saw the Apple Valley area as an opportunity. They saw potential and a place where their years of experience could flourish. After jumping on the opportunity to come to this area, They took over the current location at 22001 Coshocton Rd in April of 2013, remodeled it and opened on July 9th, 2013.
The McCurdys have done just about every job imaginable in the restaurant industry; it’s basically all they’ve ever done-- and it shows because they do it well. But at the end of the day, getting to know all the different people they meet everyday is their favorite thing about their job. “The one thing we love more than any other is the relationships we develop with our crew and guests. We have made lifelong friendships with the people who have worked with us and people we have served over the years. There’s nothing like watching some of our favorite people’s families grow.”
Apart from their “you’re like family” service, the McCurdy’s have what they call their “calling cards”-- items that sets their business apart from other bars/restaurants in the area. One of those calling cards is their half pound specialty burgers which is crafted using locally purchased beef from Lanning’s Food and is one of nine of their burgers that all have unique, impressive flavor profiles. Yum! Their second “calling card” is their wide variety of entertainment. Whether it’s a band playing in the summer outside on their patio, a wine and painting night, pool leagues, dart leagues, The 4th of July Cruise-in or one of their hosted fundraisers, there is something that most will enjoy. And finally, their amazing crew would be their third “calling card.” “Our crew is an awesome group of people who ARE our family. They are what we’re best known for.”
From the food to the service, the Bad Apple Pub is part of what makes Apple Valley so special and centered around bringing people together. Even their logo was designed by local artists, Mo and Kelly Dallas who approached the McCurdys with the idea after they heard they were looking to open at their current location. So if you haven’t already, stop in and grab a drink a craft beer and one of their burgers and become part of the family!
