We had a great experience. One down side is while we are outside it was sunny and warm. Umbrellas for the table would have made the experience perfect.

Enjoyed dining at the new location. I liked even more than the old location, although you don't get the diamond in a rough feel.

First time at the Homewood location. The outdoor is area is very nice and it supplied with heaters so it can be used for some time yet. The food is great as always, but missed the corn muffins.

Food was great. Service was good. Only question I would have is why I had to use a credit card to secure the reservation? I tried to process the reservation and I was told there were not any available times. When I looked at the other link it said I could get a reservation with a credit card.

If you want excellent Lousiana cuisine, great service and a safe dining experience, the Maple Tree is the perfect spot for you. Only our second time out for dining. We were informed by a friend the measures Maple Tree had taken for comfort and safety so we tried it! We loved it! We will return soon!

Drinks were good but the food lacked flavor and was a bit oily. We ordered the crab cakes which was only one, bbq shrimp, and catfish with garlic fries. Overall I would pass if given the option to return.

Save your money! I was expecting get New Orleans cuisine from this restaurant! Started with drinks and appetizers. The drinks were very good. I ordered Oyster Rockefeller and they taste like cornbread dressing on half shell oysters. Not good and not your traditional oyster Rockefeller. My entree was Trout Pontchartrain and my girlfriend ordered Jambalaya. So the Trout was fried and topped with mushrooms and shedded crab meat. There was no traditional Pontchartrain Sauce over the fish. The trout was so thin that it was tasteless. Also the portion size of the Trout was shameful for the cost! My girlfriend said the Jambalaya tasted like it came out of a box! She ate the shrimp only out of her entree!! We had huge expectations of this restaurant because we’re thinking New Orleans cuisine like Pappadeauxs!! No....so disappointed and shocked how bad the food was!! So if you’re looking for good New Orleans cuisine then go to Pappadeaux!! Save your money!!!

Great location, ample parking. The service was very good. I enjoyed the seafood gumbo. The entree was ok, either over cooked or reheated perhaps; I’m not a food critic; however I would go back again and by the way the cocktails are lovely 👍🏽

Great food! Portions on the slightly smaller side, so no need for a doggy bag. I miss the ambience of the old location, with the courtyard and trees but that can't be helped. The great food does make up for it. Our waiter was very good with describing the spice level of the dishes. Would recommend for both date night and groups.
