Maple Tree Inn
We are still committed to the art of Cajun/Creole cooking & maintaining our status as the first and longest-running Cajun/Creole restaurant in Chicagoland. We are featuring a menu of our signature dishes including our Hickory Buttered BBQ Shrimp, Country Gumbo, Jambalaya, Crawfish Étouffée, and many more! We have 4 boutique wines on draft, signature cocktails on draft, and an impressive canned beer list. Our hand crafted, premium cocktail menu highlights the very best of our repertoire. We look forward to hosting you & providing you with all the comforts of New Orleans, just a little closer to home!
Reduced menu, but they are trying and still open after the fire.
Great meal and drinks!
Awesome as always! Ryan was great! Chef went above board for our anniversary! 3rd year in a row celebrating here! Thanks again!
Fried catfish was cooked very well & had a good flavor. Chicory coffee was a “tasty” dark roast but could’ve been hotter. Beignets were delicious! Service was excellent. Ambiance was nice. My friend & I went early (3:30pm reservation), so it was quiet and food was served rather quickly. I would like to return once their new original location reopens.
The food was good our server was a bit slow but overall a great experience
Great food,excellent service and fabulous music!
The brisket was cooked to perfection! I loved every morsel!
Ready for the original location to re open with the full menu. Only bummer was the seafood boil doesn’t include crawfish. Food is fantastic though and the place is always friendly.
What an amazing dinner. The Sunday Seafood Boil was just fabulous. And I have never had frog legs as good as the ones in the boil. Can't wait for the old building to get finished with the rebuild since the temporary place is a bit small and loud. But anyone who wants an authentic creole meal needs to come to Msple Tree Inn. Thank you Erich and Katie.
The location is temporary, but the food and service are a constant! The drink special was wonderful. The bartender came to our table to survey our level of satisfaction. We truly enjoyed our entree’s. We had the oysters as an appetizer. The taste was amazing, but the oysters were quite small. Overall, excellent option for a date or dinner!
One of our very favorite restaurants! Drinks and food are unique and delicious!
Good service . Would prefer standard black pants white tops or something like that . Everyone was super nice but uniformity is a little classier .
My wife and daughter took me out for Father’s Day. The food was amazing. I had the burnt ends which were magnificent. My wife had the catfish and said it was awesome. My daughter had the spare ribs and said that it was the best. I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner this evening!!!!!
HOLY S&$T!!!! This Fathers Day dinner was the best ever! The seafood boil was outstanding, the Hickory Swimps fantastic, desserts even better. The service and manager were very attentive.
Maple Tree Inn is always a good choice. 2nd time at this new location, parking was easy, food was good, and table was available upon arrival.
This was my first visit, I will be back. The catfish and jambalaya was great.
My last visit was last August so I was happy to get back.
The new location is very nice but I do miss the old place.
The wait staff was very professional and friendly.
I had the brisket and it was amazing.
The key lime pie was a perfect sweet slightly tart combination.
Topped off with a delicious cup of Chicory coffee.
I can’t wait for my next visit.
every thing was wonderful..... drinks good.... food great....
Just love your new place but do miss the old place too. Would love to see you get back your muffins , oysters 2x2x2 and your crab cakes from the old Maple Tree.
Went to celebrate my daughters graduation from high school. Great place, good food/drinks!
Food was amazing. Dare I say better then original location
Brisket, jambalaya and catfish were all great. The staff is always friendly and competent. We recommend it highly.
We loved the food! It was the same quality as we have grown to expect from Maple Tree.
Everything was good, except were out of 2 dishes on the menu. We were there for a 7:30 reservation, so was surprised that they were sold out. Otherwise, food and cocktails were outstanding
Great food as always. And the service is top notch-best on the side side. It’s a small restaurant, so the noise is high. I would definitely go back and often. And the cocktails are excellent too!
Obviously not the same since the fire. Tiny little temporary spot. No air conditioning. Food was just ok, definitely not worth the $$. Beer was warm, definitely not worth the $$. Service is always good. Doubtful that we'll be back.
My first visit at this temporary location and it was excellent. I will be returning 😁
Never dissatisfied! Fantastic food, drinks and service! Ozzie is the best!
Always good. We love coming and are happy to see that a fire can’t keep this place down! We look forward to the future of Maple Tree and love Emily’s drinks.
Loved this restaurant. Service was excellent. We never had to ask for anything. Water glasses were always filled and menu was priced reasonably for what you orderd. Barbecued buttered shrimp had a little kick to it.
Great as always. Happy that there is still access to some of the wonderful offerings from Maple Tree Inn at the Bistro, but can't wait for the rebuild of the original spot.
I have already recommended Maple Tree to several friends. The food was delicious and service superb. The atmosphere was grand!!! I definitely plan to go back with family and friends!!!👍🏽
MTI was impressive. My wife and I brought a longtime friend who was delighted, as were we. We were curious about the post-fire product and were delighted by the intimate new format. The menu was sufficient. The bowl of gumbo was small but delicious. The catfish, blackened redfish etoufee, and the crab cake were really good. The beer selection was good. We’ll be back soon.
The food was excellent the music was excellent , I really had a great time the next time, I will come visit you guys again when I fly in from Washington State👍😎.
I have been going to Maple Tree Inn for YEARS and have never had a bad meal or bad service; this time was no different. We’ve started a new Mothers Day tradition with dinner at Maple Tree.
We brought our friends who throughly enjoyed our dinner.
The food is really good and I love the bistro-type quaint atmosphere. I especially love the zydeco music.
