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

I believe the breaded veal cutlet with pasta is the BEST and my wife believes the Dungeness Crab with a side of pasta and clam sauce is the BEST. We enjoy these particular selections each and every time we have visited in the past many years. THANKS for being consistent.

Dinner was fantastic. Had reservation for 4 and everything went smoothly. The place looked great and the food was good as usual. Jennifer was the best server ever, she was helpful and answered all my wifes and daughters questions. She was busy , but checked in on us often. Very pleasant and always kept smiling . Had to tip her extra ..

I had the prime rib which was done to perfection. Tender juicy and flavorful. My husband had the lamb chops and he was very pleased . Tender and seasoned perfectly. We both had the seafood chowder which is a must when we go there. Its so tasty i brought home quart. The wait staff are all very attentive. I've probably had all of them at one time or another. In my opinion its a must try restaurant. There are two other restaurants with the same name and i made the mistake of thinking they are all the same. They are not

We have been going there for years and have always enjoyed it. We dined there the night before Easter, it was not crowded and the service was very slow. I ordered the prime rib med rare it came out med well. The server took it back and brought another one that was still over cooked. The temperature of the food on both my husbands and my dinner was barely warm. Overall, this is the worst dinner we ever had there.

Every time we dine here, it is a very pleasant experience. The food is always delicious and the staff has always been courteous and polite. This visit was for my mom and brother's birthday. When the two men sang happy birthday to them, we were highly impressed.....they truly enjoyed singing...and they were good! Fantastic all around.

Seemed to be less seafood than in the past in the Joe’s Special.
Had never ordered the stuffed mushrooms before more cheddar cheese than anything. Disappointing. I generally eat here twice a year for a special meal when visiting relatives. Not sure I’ll return or recommend

Dave was our server and he did a terrific job.

The food and service were excellent! The only advice I would give is even with an Open Table reservation, you might have a wait. When we arrived and I checked us in 5 to 10 minutes prior to our reservation time, I was told that the wait time for “their open table reservations” would still be about 15 to 20 minutes and it was about that amount of time before we were seated.

The restaurant was very busy for the Valentine’s Day holiday and the food was delicious and consistent with past dining experiences. A wonderfully positive vibe flowed throughout the crowded dining room—where the tables remain too close to one another. This is a minor setback for an otherwise above average restaurant. Try “Joe’s Special” and the filet mignon as both are consistently enjoyable and a great value for the price. Service is always pleasant and professional.

We were seated quickly. That’s the only plus. Server bordered on rude. It became busy and his service reflected being very rushed. My meal came out missing ingredients sent it back. Server was rushing us. When our gift cards didn’t give amount on card he was plain ignorant. Will not go back.
