We hadn't been here for about 3 years. The menu had changed from our first visit but the food was really good. Service was good and, when I mentioned it was a birthday celebration, they even brought out a special dessert with a candle. Very nice!

We had a reservation thankfully as the place is very busy and lots of people waiting to get in to be seated. Booth was the way to go and the food was delicious. More comfort food (you get a lot) than healthy but very enjoyable. Lots of people had the "Maple Doughnuts".

Great taste of the food, Good size overall, but sometimes the service goes down a little because it's always super packed and there could be, if you don't have a reservation, an Hour waiting line to get a table for multiple people, and I do believe it's a little overprice, brunch for 2 is going to be 55 dlls with tip, But the food is excellent, still recommend it

I made a reservation for Sunday brunch and brought two friends who had never been to Great Maple . When we are arrived we were seated outside on the patio. We were never asked if we wanted to sit inside or out. We ordered the donuts right off the bat and they came out pretty quickly. We had asked for plates 3x so by the time we were given plates the donuts were cold and the maple cream had hardened. Not as tasty and they could have been. It was quite chilly outside and one of the heaters by us was not working so we were a bit uncomfortable during our time there. Kinda took away from the deliciousness of our meal and one of my friends said they would never go back. I was disappointed as I have always had a nice, warm, delicious experience at Great Maple.

This place never disappoints! Love the food and the Bloody Mary's are AMAZING!! I always make reservations but if I didn't .. worth the wait!! I do not live locally but when I'm in town I make sure I hit the Great Maple for breakfast. Yum!

We enjoyed our Valentines Dinner here. Reservations are recommended especially for weekends. The host, waiter, and servers were welcoming and attentive the customers. We head a three course meal and the food was delicious, I had sirloin with potatoes and my husband had sea bass on risotto. I definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone out on a date.

The food was good, but overpriced for what was basically upscale diner fare. Parking was extremely difficult to find (20+ minutes circling around) on a Sunday morning, and the noise level inside the restaurant was almost deafening. The one outstanding part of our friends' brunch was the stellar service. Our server even happily split the check four ways, which I know is a major annoyance.

The maple bacon donuts for dessert are a must! You cannot come here without trying them! I had the fresh turkey bolognese, which was very tasty! My husband had the salted caramel pork ribs and the meat slid off the bone! Be sure to make reservations through Open Table, it's a small restaurant with limited seating. It was a very busy night and loud for a Saturday night. Our server, Gina, was very attentive and extremely nice! I plan to go back to try the burgers and have more donuts! 😃😃😃

Love this place and their food. Have liked everything I've tried every time from the hash to the portabello mushroom fries to the popovers. Delicious! Maple bacon doughnuts are so good! The only thing I'd say I wish they'd work on is less fatty/more rendered bacon. The doughnuts and entrees have a lot of undercooked bacon. I know everyone likes their bacon a little different, but all 6 of us in my party agreed we wished the bacon was more rendered.

All was great except for the extreme proximity to other tables and the horrible acoustics in the dining room. It was as though all the guests, staff and music were all yelling the entire hour and a half we were there. They need some god damn curtains or sounds boards to stop the noise from bouncing all over the place. Food drinks and service were great other than that.

We had a great time. The food was excellent. The server really made it. I took her recommendations and was very pleased. The noise level was low that allowed my friend and I to catch up. The appetizers was wonderful but not to filling leaving room for the main course. Greta wine also.

Made a reservation for 6, got in right away. Waitress was not friendly, never came and checked back. Menu was wonderful and all items were delicious! Huge quantities, lots to take home. Noise level was high, $185. for 6 people

Very yummy! If you go you must try the French dip sandwich it brings us back every time. One thing that is annoying about this restaurant is that the acoustics are Horrible. If you are catching up with friends it can be pretty bad.

We had a fantastic experience at Great Maple for dinner. They gave us free champagne for their Friday night toast, and the food was excellent. Our server got caught up having to make drinks/to-go orders so the service was a little slow at times, but we weren't in a hurry and they were very apologetic about it. Overall great time.

Having viewed the menu on line the night before, I was disappointed that they offered only a limited menu on Sunday evening. Everything was tasty, though, and I will continue my visits to Great Maple. Note: Sunday at 5 pm was a lot quieter than other times.

I was expecting better food. The french toast looked great but it was very dry and boring. The portions have shrunk to about half of what they started with but the prices remain the same. The quiche was ok but my favorite was the smoked bacon scramble. The only thing I would ever go back for would be the maple bacon doughnuts. Everything else can be found at almost any breakfast place. NOthing was horrible, but nothing was exceptional either. Very disappointed.

First time here and will be back. Want to start first by saying service was exceptional. Attentive, friendly, fast and just a wonderful job. All three of us were very satisfied with our meals. Nicely done. Thanks

I took my grandmother for her birthday, almost a year after we first experienced Great Maple. This time, we knew we were going to be there for the toast to the weekend, but we didn't realize we'd get the restaurant week menu, and that was a real treat. Josh was a great server, and we loved everything we got.
WE came for Restaurant Week, Sunday even ...
WE came for Restaurant Week, Sunday evening at 6:45. Despite the fact that it was practically deserted, the arrival of the order was very slow. On the positive side the goat cheese appetizer and the soup were delicious. The salmon was moist and flavorsome. My husband raved about the Short Ribs Pot Pie. I was disappointed in the citrus tart, but my husband loved the chocolate dessert. The server did an excellent job.
