Delicious and well presented food priced way below restaurants of that caliber.
The menu is small but that being said, the attention to detail of their food is outstanding. I went there for dinner tonight and ordered their British-Style Fish and Chips. I asked if I could have the chips prepared the style of their Truffle Fries and they immediately accommodated my request.
My guests ordered Fish and Chips along with a French Dip and an entree sized Chicken Salad.
The presentation of all meals were excellent and tasted delicious (my guests told me)-
We all shared an Apple Pie Ala Mode and it was an individual serving of Apple Pie with Salted Carmel and that was amazing. Definitely will be coming back for their Friday Prime Rib. 😋

Great Maple which is renown for its great breakfasts and brunches has recently opened for dinner Wednesday to Saturday. Not surprisingly, dinner was super. We had the maple glazed spare ribs that came with mashed potatoes and a wonderful apple slaw. Very fresh, tasty and satisfying. Desserts also get an A+ in terms of very generous portions (my slice of key lime pie was easily 3 times as large as pieces usually served at restaurants) and deliciousness. The fresh baked individual apple carmel pie was simply exceptional. The presentation on the plate was also lovely. Service was excellent and very friendly. Unlike the long wait for breakfast and brunch at the Great Maple, the fact that they are now serving dinner seems to be the best kept secret in San Diego as there was ample parking and empty tables. No doubt this will not last once the word gets out how good dinner is here.

Amazing service and food. The hostess even went out of her way to fix the wobbly table for me right when she sat me down. Will definitely be coming back!

We went for brunch. The French toast was incredible, as was the chorizo scramble. They have a bunch of different kinds of mimosas and bloody Mary’s that were fantastic as well!

Will definitely be returning soon!

We had two orders of prime rib which needed to be warmer. I had the pork ribs which are always spectacular. Our daughter (The Birthday Girl) had the pasta which was fine but after I gave her some of my ribs, I think she’d died and gone to Heaven!

Thanks, will see you again…..

I enjoyed a plate of French toast logs and my husband enjoyed the fried turkey dish for our Thanksgiving celebration at Great Maple. We have eaten there before and were thrilled that they had reservations available for Thanksgiving. We were seated about 15 minutes before our reservation time and were waited on quickly and efficiently. Great experience! :-)

I went to Great Maple for my first time on Thanksgiving morning. I made a reservation as it’s always busy when I drive or walk by. I was seated right away when I arrived. I was a little nervous as I came by myself but felt comfortable right away! The staff were so lovely and kind. It felt like home! The coffee, chorizo scramble melt, and beer that I had were all delicious. It was so relaxing too! I will definitely be coming back. Thank-you for the wonderful experience!!!

Food was great. Waitress and service were great once sat. Only small complaint was the wait even after having a reservation. Our party was there about 10 minutes before reservation and we got sat about 20 minutes after our scheduled reservation (30 minute total wait).

One of the few breakfast/brunch places that actual serves hefty portions! And the food was clean, healthy, and delicious. The maple donuts are to die for. We experienced some slow service and our food took a while to get to us, but it was worth it. They were just really slammed that day. Absolutely going back.

We are visiting from Las Vegas. Drove by the restaurant earlier in the day so when it was time to pick a place for dinner we were like why not. The food was amazing, the service was great and the atmosphere was very nice. This is now on our list for our next visit as well.

Last night I dreamt about the freshly made maple donuts with bacon on top which were served to us yesterday!! Unbelievable! Our server, Crystal, was sweet and friendly. Our breakfasts were sublime - just outstanding!! Can't say enough good things about this restaurant - except make sure you make a reservation!!

Great Maple consistently delivers on great food and service. Our waiter, Justin, was attentive and helpful with a good balance of being available and giving us space. We caught happy hour with great brisket sliders and portobello fries. The chef’s ciopinno was a nice mix of seafood and fish with a delightful tomato- fennel sauce. The crisp skin chicken was not as good as usual. A rare miss but easy to overlook given the great service at Great Maple.

Our Server was fantastic! She made the whole experience worth it. Parking is atrocious!! They have turned the parking lot into “Outdoor Dining” - and there is limited parking in the surrounding neighborhood, so good luck finding a place to park. Thank goodness I made reservations ahead of time on Open Table, because the wait was very long without reservations. While the food was good, it’s a limited menu and overpriced. $18.50 for a hamburger and fries - really?

Breakfast is far better here but dinner was ok however our server took along time to do anything ( we waited long peroides of time to get any type of service, we had to ask someone else to fill our drinks twice, had to seek her out to ask for the check and) it was not a busy evening. Not the service I expected fit the price!
