Italian
A spin off of the original Maplewood Inn located in Hammonton, Maplewood III of Vineland is a family owned and operated restaurant serving the Vineland area for over 30 years. Maplewood III is the culmination of the dreams and work of Howard Esposito and his son Ken that began in the early 80's. We pride ourselves on making everything from scratch; tomato sauce, meatballs, soups and eggplant are prepared daily. All entrees are cooked to order using the finest, freshest ingredients. We are proud to have been chosen Vineland 's favorite Italian & most romantic restaurant by locals year after year! Although our basis is authentic Italian we have expanded our menu over the years and now offer rack of lamb, roast half of duck, broiled seafood combination, filet mignon plus a large assortment of seafood and fresh fish. Based on customer requests many of our menu items are offered in a smaller portion for those who are looking to have a lighter meal.
Enjoy! -Kenneth Esposito, Owner

Both my husband and I had the rib eye steak. Both were done to perfection. Service and food were outstanding. I frequent the Maplewood often and never have been disappointed. Highly recommend the restaurant.

We had a very nice time and the food was great. We were celebrating a birthday and the waiter we had had a very nice singing voice. He was an awesome waiter. I will definitely be returning for dinner again.

We had the most perfect birthday celebration for my mom! Everything was absolutely perfect! My meal was delicious and the chef went out of their way to make it so! My mom absolutely loved her meal and so did all of our guests! Our server, Paige, was so friendly, warm, courteous, welcoming, detail oriented, she always greeted us with a warm smile and her presence was always welcome, she took all of our family photos and she made us smile extra! Everything she took care of was absolutely perfect! The owner, Kenny, came to check on us and we let him know that everything was absolutely PERFECT! Outstanding job, Maplewood III!! Thank you!
We also recently celebrated my dad‘s big birthday, there, in November, and it was also fabulous!! Very grateful! We have all of our family celebrations there, but these last two, were absolutely PERFECTION!! 🏆🥇🏅🎖
Thanks, Paige, and Maplewood III!! 🏆🙏😇🙌✨🎉👏

Although both our meals were good, in general, the entrees main items were really sparse with overwhelmingly large sides. Differently not worth the price. We would not go back.

Felt rushed the entire time. Appetizers came out a different times so some people watched while others ate. Entrees were good, but I couldn’t get over the earlier issues we had.

Our meal was very good, as always. My wine, Berenger's White Zinfandel, very expensive
and tasted stale. It usually tastes that way so sometimes I forgo wine. I had the same wine
just recently at Olive Garden and it was excellent. We have visited Berenger Winery many
times in Napa Valley, they would be appalled. Also, love the veggies but do not like them
altogether in one bowl." My leftovers were just thrown together.
Love the decor and ambiance, also the service is very good.

My first visit back since moving away from the area. Arranged for a post-Christmas Sunday afternoon visit. Cannot say we're were impressed with the food, and we tried many dishes. Items arrived cold or overcooked or without enough flavor or with too much salt. Bread and aioli, salad, and desserts were highlights for our generally easy-to-please party of 10. Service was pleasant but slow. Can't say I'd go out of my way to dine there again, but since it is a South Jersey staple, I'm sure one negative review won't hurt business.

Everything was very good. The only complaint was from my husband who had veal parm with side of homemade pasta. The pasta was not drained enough so it left water on serving plate which then made the underside a little soggy.

Had a gift card from our birthday. Meal was excellent. David’s service was attentive, free of mistakes, and not too intrusive. Lobster bisque, Filet, seafood combo, drinks, and the fried cheesecake dessert with the funny name! We’ll be back!

I've been here several times and have never been disappointed with any thing. Just when i thought I have tried the best of their menu, i try something else and i find i was wrong. Every thing is awesome. The seafood chowder is to die for.

We had our book club Christmas party. The hostess was very accommodating. She moved our table to allow more room as we had a gift exchange. The waiter was the best. Even brought us extra mints! Will definitely be back.

We love the Maplewood 3! Dinner, special occasions....we are never disappointed. Our favorite is the spaghetti with lump crabmeat. (We always ask for extra sauce on the side....I could make meal out of just dipping my bread in the sauce!)
