Once again, great meal, service and price. They have adapted to outdoor dining. The food was delicious- we had the seafood stew special and crispy chicken. Both were tasty. They are consistent.

The service was great, but my food was just warm and they forgot to bring my bacon w/my order. When they did bring it, it was obvious that it had been pre-cooked and not warmed again, yuck! I frequent this restaurant and most of the time it is super!

I’ve been going to this restaurant for some time and have never had such poor service, our server was rude and condescending almost felt like she purposely forgot items that we had asked for had to repeat myself multiple times and tried to rush us through our breakfast.

As always, we enjoyed our breakfast at The Great Maple. We ate outdoors and they really made the parking lot dining area cute, unlike other restaurants who just plop a canopy, plastic tables and folding chairs in the middle of a parking lot. The staff was friendly and the food was great.

Great Maple is always... Great!!! More than great actually. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. The food is amazing and the service is so friendly. Very cool people work there. Marcos always makes the best drinks for us, spicy margaritas. Annie is so friendly and attentive. They have done their absolute best during the pandemic and I am so happy they are still going strong, thanks to the incredible staff and great management. We always take our friends and family there, and I would recommend Great Maple to everyone.

As always, the food was plentiful and delicious. Our two servers were amazing they made us feel extra special made sure we were comfortable under the umbrellas and checked on us without being obtrusive. It was pretty busy for a Thursday morning Which just goes to show what a popular place this is. My husband got the pigs in a blanket and I got the brisket hash. We both had enough for another breakfast the next morning with the leftovers.

Food was soggy and we even had to send one of our sides back because we were so unhappy with it after just one bite. I had made a reservation specifically for indoors and we were seated outside which would be nice to have known ahead of time. If outdoor seating is not an option it should not be listed as one. Because we were outdoors and near the street it was very loud and hard to speak to each other from just across the table. But I think the worst part of our experience was our server who cursed like a sailor when he spoke to us. I’m not sure if this is always allowed but it definitely made us uncomfortable. Needless to say we will not be returning to this location.

The outdoor ambiance is amazing. They took outdoor dining to the next level. We want to come back for the mimosa bar. Food was great. Staff was excellent.

I went for Easter Sunday brunch and the food and service was outstanding. They decorated for Easter, had an Easter bunny photo booth and a special Easter menu. The maple donuts are so good! Can’t wait to return.

The place was packed. And I understand everyone is trying their best especially on Easter. But pet peeve of mine is when one plate comes and not the other persons. Hate it! The food let’s just say I knew this. But I confirmed it. It’s mediocre. Powdered eggs, yuck! I ordered the waffles on a stick and they came with a side of powder eggs and bacon.

My husband ordered the Easter plate which consisted of lamb, meat was tough and the plate didn’t make sense. It was a lamb hash. Just meat and asparagus thrown in with a couple of potatoes and a poached egg. Nothing spectacular. Flavor was not there either. Overall it’s not that good. Just a popular spot.

Always a great spot for brunch! Sat on the back patio, which was nice. Food is delicious with large plates - must be why it's a bit expensive. Worth it!

It was a beautiful ambience however, if you like your food well seasoned you might have to request salt and pepper on the side. Waitresses switched in between our meal but the service was good.

Many dishes (breakfast) you can share, big proportions. A bit expensive but sharing keeps the cost down. Will go again. Love making a reservation! Staff is great!

First time trying this place & honestly loved the food! The donuts are absolutely incredible and the chilaquiles amazing too. Service was great. Only thing was we sat at a two top right next to the loud road - ambience wasn’t very nice considering the price we paid for drinks and food. Nonetheless I understand it’s difficult to make outdoor seating work during this time. We just can’t wait to come back to sit inside - it looked beautiful.
