Hickory Buttered BBQ Shrimp
I have visited this location two times and I must admit the food is absolutely delicious.
The food was soooo tasty!!!Steak frites was superb!!!
Nice heated outdoor patio. Phenomenal drinks. Delicious food, although server wasn’t aware a few items weren’t available until after we ordered.
Fabulous! Brought back wonderful memories of New Orleans dining.
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.
Spectacular food, service, and atmosphere. They take COVID-19 precautions seriously, too. We highly recommend Maple Tree Inn and will be back.
Great food, great ambiance. Would definitely recommend.
Great food and good drinks. Seated right away and server was great
The heaters on the patio are fabulous! Great way to extend the use of the patio!
Always a pleasure coming here!
Amazing Experience!!! The food and beignets were EXCELLENT!!!
Beautiful new space, great ambiance, food and service.
We ate outside and staff was very responsible as far as mask wearing (over mouth AND nose). It will be a while though before I eat inside anywhere.
Very welcoming with fantastic food and cocktails!!
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.
Great food and our waiter (a very handsome and engaging young man) was an absolute joy!
We dined on 9/16 at 6:45
Great drinks and good food. The restaurant is beautiful
Dinner was not only great, but I have to comment on their service. Absolutely excellent!! Ran into my bribers who were there for date night and o awash there with a girlfriend and it was such a great setting for both.
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.
Good food and service ! The ambiance is very inviting.
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!
Great food. Beautiful place. Felt safety practices in place
Seating was great outside. The bees were a bit annoying
The service is perfect. Friendly as well as Clean, spaced, sanitized safe for staff and guests. And the food was delicious!!
Great food. Patio was nice. They took great COViD precautions which was appreciated.
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.
Love the food and ambiance and Emily is the best bar tender!
Customer service was good. Food and cocktails were on point 😊! Presentation was everything.
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!!!
Our server Adam was very nice, funny, and helpful. The food was great and our outdoor seating made for a very nice evening.
I always enjoy the food and cocktails at Maple Tree. The service was excellent. The staff made sure to follow the safety guidelines.
It is always guaranteed that I will receive great food when I visit, just wish they could extent the sitting to 2 hours
The ambience and staff are great! My mom loved the gumbo.
Had the Chef's selection which I believe is different every weekend. Everything was great. I love this place and I love their new location.
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 👍🏽
The food was absolutely amazing. From the appetizers to the beignets we enjoyed every bite
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.
Maybe try it agian.
Food was mediocer. Expecting some real New Orleans fair.
Kind of a negative vibe from received.
Great food! I will visit again!
My server Ozzie was amazing!!! My Birthday was absolutely phenomenal.
