Great Maple has figured out how to make a hit during Covid. Our whole experience was awesome starting with the bartender making my favorite cocktail. The food was yummy, service professional and prompt. We had a great time!

We made a reservation and were seated right away even though there was an extremely long line! Food came out fast and it was delicious. I would definitely recommend, but make a reservation! This place was very packed and we had to park pretty far (: but it was worth it!

My second visit in the last 2 weeks; once for lunch and for brunch. For the latter, we had reservations, which is great for a weekend. Was able to "walk up" for outside seating for a Wed. lunch. Menu selections are more limited now, but still well prepared and with good service. For lunch both my companion and I had the daily quiche, and for brunch I had the French toast "logs". Serving sizes are large; I took half the French toast and side of bacon home and had it the next day. It warmed up well. Probably the only downside is the heavy traffic noise from the road right by the outdoor dining area.

Very chill place for a great dinner. Everyone goes for brunch, but you should try out the dinner. And they have Old Speckled Hen on nitro. The best beer in the world.

My partner and I have been big fans of Great Maple for brunch--we had no idea it had dinner until we found the table on OpenTable. GM did NOT disappoint. The food was delicious, the drinks were perfect, and the service was so lovely. The ambiance was perfect for a date night. Highly recommend!

The first Great Maple we ever went to was the Pasadena location a couple of years back. Became a follower immediately. Since then, we've visited the UTC and Hillcrest restaurants and one thing I can say - it's consistent.

Excellent brunch and comfort food. This visit was no exception. If I had to nitpick, we did have to wave down our server a couple (no more than two) of times, but with the outdoor seating and very crowded weekend morning - it's understandable, and I know the very nature of the beast. But overall - outstanding experience, and I'll keep coming back.

...oh, and the two Irish coffees were excellent.

We had Sunday brunch at Great Maple and it was a great experience! Our server, Kaylin was a delight; really enjoyed talking to her. On her suggestion, we split the French Toast logs, because the portion is huge! And we still ended up taking half of it home. Had to try the Maple Bacon donuts too! All the food and drink we had was wonderful. The only negative was the amount of flies we had to keep shooing away from our food and drinks; wish the restaurant could do something about that when dining outside. Otherwise, we loved our experience, will definitely be back and will highly recommend the restaurant to our friends and family!

Exceptional menu for both food and beverages. Don't find many places in SD to get an Old Speckled Hen English beer! Portions are gigantic, with my wife carrying home about 3/4 of a beautiful Prime rib. Our friend had the lamb burger done medium which was perfect. Again she took home 1/2. I settled for the fantastic Yellow tail appetizer which was more than enough and so fresh it must have been caught that morning. Finished off with classic warm bacon - maple donuts, again which we took home. Traffic along Washington is a little noisy so sit towards the building if outside. Enjoyed

Loved all their cute design on cups and cutlery. The food was amazing and will definitely come back. Chilaquiles were phenomenal and the philly was amazing! We brought out my 9 year old for a birthday brunch. We were given the choice to sit inside or outside so we sat outside and it was very chill ambiance. Our server was also very delightful and made it a point to remember that we had a birthday girl. Will come back for sure to try out other items on the menu!

My wife and I ate breakfast at GM on August 30th. I had the regular 2 egg ranch breakfast and it was excellent. My wife had the quiche of the day and she said that it was delicious, We topped it off with the maple donuts--always delicious. Service was very good but GM needs to refresh their decor. A solid 4+ star restaurant; we will return.

The service and food was AMAZING! All of the staff were so sweet. We had our son with us and they made him feel extra special. We had the calamari and it was perfect. So crunchy, a little spice and the olives and sauce were the perfect compliment. My husband had the yellowfin with yummy seeded crackers. My chicken with truffle risotto was delicious. My husband enjoyed his salmon with polenta. My son loved the mac and cheese. The pecan pie with ice cream was so good. We also bought maple bacon donuts to go. We had a great experience.

Had a wonderful brunch with some friends over the weekend and had the best time! The service was great and the food and drinks were such a treat! My only gripe is that parking is difficult around that area, but it’s worth the walk to come to this restaurant. Such a great experience and will be back soon!
