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.

Great food. Presentation and taste are all there. Service was ok. Our server was not fully aware of what was available on the menu. That is subpar for a restaurant of this caliber.

We had the BLT and the Doughnut and Fried chicken for lunch. The latter was very sweet but yummy. The BLT was loaded with bacon and very tasty. Lots of people here. Love open table was we were able to walk in past the line up with our reservation.

The service by Grant was impeccable. He’s attentive in every way without being overbearing. The food selection and presentation of each dish is outstanding. We had delicious food from the extensive menu. We had difficulty choosing from so many mouthwatering temptations. We watched many different types of food being served thinking maybe that would help us choose, not so much, we wanted it all. I finally settled on the fish taco lunch, my husband chose the beef dip type sandwich. We both enjoyed our meals very much, I was presented with three tacos and could only finish one. But I sure managed to eat every chip and all the verde salsa. The amount of fish was amazing in each taco. We highly recommend this restaurant.
