Great Maple was a lovely experience for our friends and us. On a chilly, drizzly evening, we dined on the patio. The overhead heaters and the eisenglass shades kept us warm. The noise level (or lack thereof) was just perfect. The cocktails, food and wine were delicious and beautifully presented. But the absolute highlight of our experience was the superb service that we received! From the manager, who greeted us first, to the bartender and our lovely server, everyone was thoughtful, cheerful, engaging and efficient. It is the outstanding welcome and service that will cause us to return!

Unfortunately we have been to this restaurant multiple times and the service is ALWAYS super slow. The food and ambiance aren’t worth the frustration with the wait staff.

Nice outdoor patio that was perfect for our large party. The service was great, and all our food was served quickly and at the same time. The French toast and donuts were the highlights.

Food was very good except all of our burgers were way over cooked and lacking the cheese. The manager was very responsive and offered to remake but given the amount of time we had and the length of time that took everyone else had eaten by the time it was brought out. The manager did however adjust the bill and the service was very good. We will return and try the devil eggs which every other table seemed to order.

Food was delicious! Eric, our waiter, was attentive and made great suggestions for appetizers - creamy and unctuous hummus and entrees - tender juicy flat iron steak and maple glazed salmon. The food arrived in a timely manner. Eric was on top of coffee and lemonade refills. The outside seating was lovely. Several patrons brought their dogs and they were well behaved. The only bummer, which obviously wasn’t the restaurant’s fault, was the table behind us was unbelievably rude. The woman yelled the entire time, so when another table was sat next to them, they had to talk loudly to hear each other over the yeller. It was like a domino effect...every other table had to speak louder in order to be heard above the yeller. Really ruined the chill vibe we had going on - even with large parties with kids!

Birthday lunch for dear friends. We sat outside. Most of us ordered the Traditional poached eggs with popovers, Hollandaise sauce, ham and potatoes! Delicious!!! My mom ordered a spectacular looking Cobb salad. The color and taste were terrific! Dessert was glorious powdered sugar beignets served in a hot bag that our waiter then shook to ensure full powdered sugar coverage and then poured into a waiting dish. Awesome! The only drawback was the noise level. Too many people enjoying the restaurant. But our serve was attentive and the food was scrumptious!

Let me start by saying the food was outstanding. Our group had the French Toast logs, Chocolate chip pancakes, Maple and Bacon doughnuts and a BLT. Everything was delicious.
The service was a little slow. Our server told us they were short staffed. I don't like it when servers use that as an excuse as I am not getting the "short staffed" discount.
The accustics inside aren't great as it's really loud and difficult to have a regular conversation. However the decor is lovely.
They do have pet friendly outdoor patio seating which is why we were really disgusted when they allowed a couple to bring their two dogs in a stroller INSIDE the restraunt. They were NOT service animals. This is a health code violation and I found it to be both inconsiderate and just gross.
We did complain and as far as we could tell nothing was done.
I would not go back to a place to eat that allows non-service animals inside the restraunt.

We went here for my 40th birthday family dinner. Some of the orders were wrong, we had to ask for the right amount of waters and kids menus, and the food wasn’t something we would come back for. The chicken bowl was good, as was the cream of mushroom soup. The burgers were dry and bland, as was the turkey bolognese. My son enjoyed the fried chicken and doughnut platter. Interior was designed tastefully which is what drew us in the first place.

I made a reservation on open table which is always a good idea because the Great Maple is always busy.

When I arrived we were greeted with a welcome and a smile. Staff is always friendly and polite!

Our server was very outgoing, friendly and attentive!

I chose Great Maple for my Birthday and really enjoyed it!

Birthday celebration dinner. Oddly enough we all ordered the turkey burger and we all agreed it was one of the best as the Brie and onion jam added so much depth and flavor. Our server was especially attentive and brought us a complimentary desert!

Our meal was amazing! We went here for my moms birthday lunch and she got the fried chicken sandwich with the Parmesan truffle fries, my dad got the chicken and avocado toast and I got the French toast logs. We sat outside and the weather was beautiful! Our waitress was very helpful, kind and gave her honest opinion when we asked about certain foods. I can’t wait to bring my husband to try this place.

The food was lousy, the service was just as bad. I have no idea how this place stays in business. We eat out a lot and thought we would try it. No one in our party of 4 liked our meal and we will never return.

Our experience was a little frustrating. We had a reservation but still had to wait for our table. I don’t think the hosts communicated well. They said it’ll just take 5 min but ended up longer. Every time we checked back, they said the table was ready “right now” but obviously it was not. Food was just ok. We also ordered pineapple juice for my 3 yr old but it tasted funny and seemed to have some carbonation. Requested to have it changed but it tasted the same. I’ve never had pineapple juice like that even if it was straight from a can so not sure what was wrong with it and I’m definitely not giving it to my child. Server never really followed up on us either. Overall, it was a disappointing experience.

3 of us went to celebrate a birthday dinner, and the food was excellent. Between us, we had the nightly special (Sea Bass), the Prime Rib Dip, the Turkey Burger, and an appetizer of hummus. Everything was great. The only drawback would have been the slow service. Took awhile to return with our drink order, and a longer time to return and take our order. The food was served in a timely manner, but refilling our drinks took quite a long time. Overall, I’d return, because the food was great, and I’ll hedge my bets that the service will be better next time.
