Excellent service. Mediocre food. I had chicken and fries - French fries not crispy, chicken ok.

Love the popovers, I do. But the rest of it isn't all that special. That zucchini pancake is tired and wasn't particularly tasty when I tried it a few meals ago. The eggs were OK, hard to ruin poached. My partner's pancakes were adequate, she said, but probably reheated. I think there's need for some work in the kitchen. Not such a great value proposition. The service was very good.

Very creative limited menu, everything we tried was spectacular. Portobello Mushroom Fries with Aioli dipping sauce was great. Tried salmon with horseradish crust, pork ribs... both were delicious and the presentation was clean and upscale. Lemon Crush pie for dessert was very lemon-custardy with traces of lemon pulp. Would have preferred a shortbread crust instead of the apple pie crust for that dessert, though.

Tried the butternut/apple soup...spectacular!
Had the shrimp risotto, good.
Son had the carmel salted short ribs....he is the hamburgler and only eats hamburgers. He LOVES this dish. Cudos Great Maple!
We should stop eating dessert...but cannot resist the apple pie.
Too much good food with fun, friendly service.
One critique: Turn the a/c down....it's winter.

As always, the staff was great. The waits are long, but with a reservation seating usually only takes 10-15 minutes. Bottom line, it's a popular place. Prepare to wait. Also, there are only 2 restrooms; 1 for men and 1 for women. I waited almost 20 minutes to go to the bathroom. So empty your bladder in advance. This visit I was very disappointed to see the menu had changed. The 2 dishes I get were both off the menu, including the Shrimp Polenta. When I found this out I almost left. But I stayed and had the delicious beignets! But with the menu changes it will definitely no longer be my go to for brunch. I hope to see some of the favorites return to the menu.

Brunch and Energy
Selecxted Great maple for a noonish Sunday Birth day brunch. Little did we know that the neighborhood flea market and farmers market were happening so parking was hard to come by. Good thing we had a reservation. our wait was apx 10 minutes. Oh yes, it was very noisy so turn down those hearing aids. Now: Bloody Mary's have choices that range from traditional to octopus. (yes octopus). French Toast logs big enuf to share. (and that maple bacon syrup!) The popover with goat cheese squash blossom is like a deconstructed eggs benedict. for vegans try the "stack". Did I mention the energy and noise? youngish crowd this sunday. Service was great considering the place was packed. By 1:30 the noise started to taper. enjoy!
