Chicken and donuts were disappointing. The Chicken pieces were thin, dry, and under seasoned. The maple syrup and donuts were tasty.

The GM Chopped salad was average. The chicken pieces were small and the portion was small. The pesto dressing wasn’t very flavorful. The lettuce and ingredients were fresh.

The best item was my sons Chicken sandwich. The chicken was plump, juice, and flavorful. The slaw was delicious.

Currently, with so few tables the only way to get a reservation is thru OpenTable. I highly recommend you do this as they get very busy.
This review process should be shorter if you want everyone to respond.

In from out of town and needed a place to meet friends for lunch that was outside. All four of us loved our food and the service was great! Sitting on the patio by the fountain was very nice. Highly recommend!!

We usually enjoy eating here however this past visit was a bit of a disappointment. First, it seemed like the waiter was new so when asked about a cocktail his response was immediately a no instead of checking first with the bartender. We ordered the cajun shrimp Benedict but the food was a salty and the presentation was not the greatest. We also ordered a burger, and instead of the meat we asked to substitute with chicken which it was also a bit salt. We did enjoy the truffle fries and the sautéed green beans. Unfortunately, we will most likely not be coming back.

We felt the wait staff was very stingy. We ordered a mimosa “kit” which is a bottle of champagne and small decanter of juice. We asked for a splash more of juice and they said they’d have to charge us. We said fine, and they then said oh it’s ok after all. Then my 10 year old brought her very raw burger to my attention and we asked them to remove it from our bill and they spent 5-10 minutes discussing “how did she order it?” She wasn’t sitting with me when she ordered but she definitely didn’t say raw! They finally took it off the bill. After I said idc just take it away. Our bill was over $500. There were 4 adults and 6 kids. I’ve worked as a server for years and never “return” food etc but this was a bizarre experience. We’ve eaten here several times and it’s been fine.

Food was delicious and the service was exceptional. We ordered Fried chicken with donuts, mushroom fries and Cajun Shrimp Benedict and a beef patty for our dog. We enjoyed every bite and cleaned our plates, ha ha!
Nice place to relax and enjoy a meal after shopping!
It's best to make a reservation. I booked my reservation via Opentable, it was a breeze!

GREAT and welcoming service. So nice.

Discovered a NEW delicious appetizer - Roasted Cauliflower and Vegetable Hummus . I am NOT a veggie lover, AT ALL, but this was worthy of a main course for me!

Incredible taste, fascinating blend of spices, interesting texture and a beautiful fresh presentation with rainbow radish, garden fresh carrots, bright crisp green beans and warm pita for dipping . Trust me!! Order this.

Of course, all the Great Maple bacon favorites in various sweet and savory dishes to try.

I brought some girlfriends for brunch on Sunday and what a terrific choice this was! We had beignets, eggs benedict, french toast logs and chilequilas and everything was OUTSTANDING. The service was fantastic as well. I highly recommend them!

Chicken bowl was mushy Brussels topped with very overcooked chicken. Tapenade overwhelmed the steak frites. Beignets were undercooked balls of dough. Eaten here for brunch and loved it, but dinner was a major let down.

We came expecting a signature experience. We both ordered salads, and the modern Caesar was not worth the $25(shrimp added). Their signature salad, the GM Chopped salad was okay. The best part was the appetizer, which was a deep fried Portobella mushroom.
I would suggest that you consider the fried chicken and donuts, which seems to be what they are known for.

I arrived early and was seated promptly. They have expanded the patio to allow for socially distanced tables, and the staff was attentive and helpful. Dining out has been a little nerve-wracking this year, but we felt very comfortable at the Great Maple. I had a great dining experience and would definitely recommend.

We were a little late but after a short wait, we were given a table. The mushroom fries were awesome, the eggs benedict was super salty with the prosciutto and the eggs were overcooked. The waitress was very accommodating and brought 2 more eggs that were nicely cooked and runny. The maple bacon donuts are dry. Very expensive for the mediocre food.

I have gone to great Maple many times but I was disappointed this time not in the quality of the food which was excellent not in the ambiance which was also very good but in the fact that I set up a birthday dinner for a friend and they didn’t even have a birthday cake or scoop of ice cream for the person at the end of the meal. Disappointing!!

I was in town and took My Goddaughter to Great Maple as it’s always a great place to eat. Unfortunately it was taking kind of long and then unfortunately there was a hair on my avocado. I did get a new chicken bowl but I was expecting a little bit more from Great Maple... been here multiple times to have this happen. It was a disappointment.
