A must stop if you're in the area during apple season. We stop during Apple Fest in Gays Mills. Tip: Get there in the morning because they sell out. Bring a cooler - they sell frozen pies and they keep very well - perfect for the holidays! Fritters, Carmel apple pizza with cinnamon ice cream are our favorites!
This little house really turns out the pies during the annual Gays Mills Applefest! Inside I found a countertop loaded with boxed pies... But be careful- they just came out of the oven and they're hot! Behind the counter you could see the ladies in action making pies, one laying out the crusts, another working the giant mixer, a third loading 'em up with apples, etc. My pie was 7 bucks, and was really good- you should definitely make this place part of an apple weekend! I give 'em 5 stars for working their tails off making nice pies. But be warned that during apple fest they're selling pies as fast as they're making them- so if you're particular about a certain pie style (crumbly top, traditional, etc) you may have to settle for whatever they have on hand when you get there. Lighten up- it's PIE, and no matter what it's gonna be good!

Town Tap

This is a pretty awesome, authentic, town tap. Full of locals having a drink or two or 12. Cute girls tending bar. Add in a few random visitors like me drinking after a day of Turkey hunting or Trout fishing or whatever. You won't get a second look sitting at the bar in full camouflage- a real country place. On a Saturday night EVERYBODY for miles around ends up here. So I have many reasons for really liking this place myself: 1st- at the Gays Mills apple fest this bar had a "float" in the parade. The coolest thing ever- an early 70s Olds 442 with a "Halvers Tap" sign taped to the door (see pics), doing massive burnouts, then slamming on the brakes. Repeat this all around the block. Really awesome. I discussed how impressed I was with Mr. Halver the other night and he told me they'd gotten an 82 year old friend to drive and do the burnouts last year- how do you beat that? You can't- period. Also, this place is pretty hard drinking and rock-n-roll! The juke box is loaded with interesting, pretty hard music and the staff is into it. I heard one dude defend his recent Poison selection as "kind of old school." haha- great! But really, Poison's about the worst crap in there. And they have a regular dude who hangs out back hustling pool games. I swear to God this dude is Satan- skinny with long dark hair, dark shifty eyes, fair skin, sleeveless t-shirt, prison tattoos, missing teeth, the works. I looked at him for quite a while because he looked so familiar, but I've never met him I'm sure. Satan has that effect on a person I hear. So yeah, Halver's Tap is cool- you'll meet lots of interesting locals, get ripped on cheap beer, and have an all around good time.

Slooooooowwww. Which would be ok with a splendid result, but that was not the case. Arrived well past the lunch hour on a Saturday during apple season, and the exasperated waitress noted how busy it was ( 8 patrons among three tables) and that should have been our clue. 45 minutes to crank out an overdone steak sandwich served inside a hoagie with no utensils, yet too gristly to consume in that configuration. For eight bucks, with no sides. No, I won't be back.
