I ordered the chilaquiles and my husband had the smoked brisket hash. Both were perfect. Pricey but I will pay that for quality food. I was told to save room for the maple bacon donuts. Ran out of room because our portions were hefty so will have to come back, darn.

Our meals were excellent and we will be returning to Great Maple. The only thing that I would like to see improved is the atmosphere which can be loud. I understand the restaurant is in an older building and it is difficult to sound proof. So I would suggest going early for dinner and getting a table in a corner... More

Service was great. Must try one of their English Pop Overs. Food tasted so good. The place has unique ambience, nicely maintained and clean. Porch seating was closed for some reason.

Many breakfast and lunch casserole type dishes that are excellent. Only reason it is not 5 Star is it can be a little pricey. It is also on the edge of Hillcrest and... More

It was a rainy evening on New Year's Eve, several of the tables had to be closed down because of leaking droplets coming down! I was sort of like being in a funny sitcom! There were several large tables with families and children celebrating the holidays! We were ushered to a table with dripping then to another dryer table. The... More

We visited Great Maple at happy hour-great deals on drinks and appetizers. Fun atmosphere as an updated diner, but was is not to miss are the pies. We had a chocolate bourbon pecan pie-it reminded me of a gooey walnut (pecan) brownie, about the most delicious pie I've tasted.
