Delicious food. Good service. Cute place inside, but a little cramped (tables were close together). Challenging to find parking if lot is full. Enjoyed our meals.

Our experience at Great Maple was a great Mother’s Day moment! Our server, Jenna, knows her stuff and is attentive and helpful. Making a reservation is the way to go - seated immediately, service quick, recommendations spot on, and food fantastic!

Service was not great but it was a busy Saturday Morning. I had a reservation but still had to wait.
Food took a long time to arrive but a fun place to have breakfast. The pickle bloodie mary was great!

Great menu, portions very large, so be aware that you can share some plates. Flavours fantastic. We have been before and the service has always been fantastic. Unfortunately our server this tine couldn’t handle the crowds and made mistakes in our order and accused us of not ordering correctly, then called one of our party ‘girlfriend’ .... pretty unprofessional.

I was looking forward to coming to Great Maple after hearing such great reviews. Unfortunately the day we went, it was packed and the noise level inside was completely ridiculous. Thankfully we were able to get a table outside, but the service we had out there was not good. It took forever for our waitress to come take even our drink orders. We finally were able to order food and when it, half of the plates for the table were cold. I will say the flavors were good (and the donuts outstanding), but our waitress never even came back to check and see how we were, until we were finished and had been sitting there with empty plates in front of us for at least 10 minutes. Maybe it was just an off day, but it was overall not a good enough experience to make me want to go back.

We had a reservation but they seated us early, in a good booth. Smart, cheerful, helpful waiter and other staff. We started with martinis followed by a nice Merlot. The food was very good (oddly though, the “crispy skin chicken” wasn’t, in fact, crispy - but it was fine anyway). A new favorite place.

Had 6:30 PM reservations for four and were seated promptly. The restaurant wasn't very busy so we were able to visit and take our time ordering. Two of us ordered an Ancho Chili Mango Margarita...not good at all. For dinner...Crispy Skin Chicken Risotto, Rock Shrimp Risotto, Bbq Brisket Sandwich, and Quiche. Everyone was very satisfied with their choice.

Food was phenomenal, our server Josh S., was super nice and helpful, and it was a really cute diner style place. It’s was super packed on a Saturday around lunch, so make sure you have a reservation. Also because of all the people, it was pretty loud. Other than that, wonderful place to eat.

Had a wonderful evening celebrating our anniversary at the same place we met for snacks 29 yrs ago. It was Topsy’s then, and now Great Maple. We sat in the same booth and reflected on how much had changed and yet stayed the same. Thanks to our waiter and staff at Great Maple we had a perfect celebration.

Unique menu with fantastic array of breakfast options. Nothing there is bad. All four people within our party we're very pleased with the food, the coffee and the service. Don't let the outside fool you either - the inside is very nice, comfortable and service was great too.

The food was fabulous. There were six in our party, and I think most of us ordered different entree’s and the portions were generous. I typically bring part of my dinner home from restaurants, and this was no exception. It was just as yummy as leftovers! I had the Moroccan lamb ragu & the taste was sensational without being overly spiced or salty. We had 3 starters: deviled eggs, gnocchi & calamari—everyone loved the calamari best, but we also added an order of pop-overs, which also were popular. We were very full by the time we ordered dessert, but the blueberry custard pie was amazing & the maple bacon donuts made for a tasty breakfast treat the next day. Great Maple is known for their breakfast, but dinner was exceptional, and I don’t think the secret is out yet. We had wonderful service as well. I just hope I can get a table next time we go! We’ll definitely be back!

Have been very impressed with the great maple on a previous visit. Was sadly disappointed this time. Food was okay but nothing I would come back for if I had not previously had an amazing meal her. I will for sure try them out one more time
