Great Father’s Day brunch. Loud inside, but at least covered the noise of our crying baby! Will go back.

The only thing is we had early Father's Day brunch reservations so only a few tables occupied and ordering food and delivery took a little long

The food was very fresh, good quality ingredients. The portobello mushroom fries and cauliflower hummous was delicious as was the salmon and veggie burger. All were good. The blood orange margarita was not that great. Overall very enjoyable food and quick service.

We had a friendly business dinner for a group. I wuold suggest that if possible a group be seated at a stand-alone table as opposed to a table where one side is the banquet seating. Those that sat on that long seat were trapped in - difficult to independently get up to use the restroom without 2 people sliding out. Food was tasty, drinks were great. Sometimes it was difficult to flag a server.

The food was excellent but the service was sooooooooooo slow. Either they were short handed or they just cant handle the volume of people. Thank heaven we had an appetitser because by the time the food came we were very hungry. Because of that we ate to fast and did not fully enjoy the moment. Also we sat at a table that was used as a door stop. A little embarrasing to eat at a nice place that is not cheap and have to have one of your guest be a door stop.

I don't like all the dogs that are allowed and I think its against the health laws. I need fleas and ticks like a hole in the head.

Love Great Maple! Our only concern was that there was a table a few away from us where they allowed the diners to have their dogs (one sitting in her lap at the table). Outside on the patio is fine, but inside isn't ok.

We’ve always enjoyed the food here on quieter weeknights. But last Saturday the interior noise level was rock-concert loud. We sat in the patio surrounded by 7 dogs! 7 dogs within about 10 feet! It was like eating in a pet store. Seriously people. Leave your dogs at home!!!

Our server, Thomas, was great; very kind, attentive and patient. The food was good, the atmosphere was nice. It was Mother’s Day, so a bit crowded and the patio was small (but maybe because of all the people). They allowed dogs, just FYI incase you don’t like that idea.

Overall a good experience. Four of us each had different dishes. One one of us had something that they thought was ok but not great. The test of us liked our dish. The noise level was very high but we had a table outside near the mall walkway which made it better. I would have not liked to sit inside. The service was somewhat slow but it was Mothers Day and crowded so I gave them a pass. The table was ready when we arrived which I appreciated very much. The greeters were pleasant and efficient. The servers likewise but as I said a little slow. However they never rushed us which was nice. Overall a good dining experience. I would recommend it to others.

Yummy brunch although wildly delicious high carbs! Our reservation was almost ready but it was a busy Sunday. Our waiter was helpful and efficient. The menu was varied. Everyone enjoyed their selections. It was noisy and busy but the service was fast and attentive. We'd definitely go back but probably not on a Sunday at noon.

We have visited this establishment for Easter brunch the last two years and have had an amazing experience there. One of our favorite places to go while in Newport! In our opinion, the must-trys are the chicken & doughnuts as well as their beignets.
