Breakfast and a cocktail

Traditional style breakfast. They serve all types of food but I look here for breakfast. friendly, clean and priced right. You can also have a cocktail any time of the day if you so desire.

I've been going to Maples for as long as I can remember. It's one of my grandparent's favorite restaurants, and the waitress that's been there forever has always been so sweet, I just can't remember her name. We always request her or Jessica, who is equally as awesome. The food here is fresh and cooked homestyle and the portions are... More

Was a little leery at first about stopping here, but we were hungry so we decided to give it a try. I ordered the Turkey Club, but before doing so asked if it was deli meat or real roasted turkey. She assured me it was real roasted turkey. Well it was real roasted turkey and it was very good! Priced... More

If there were a negative rating I would give it. Tonight 10 volunteers, including myself, met at Maples Restaurant to have a working dinner for a nonprofit group. We intentionally sat in the adjoining room separate from the main dining area so that our talking would not bother anyone. It would not have mattered, however, as the restaurant was pretty... More

When you hear 5* you might think of crystal and white linens. Maples is not that. But, it is a solid restaurant that delivers a 5 on what it is -- a very nice local restaurant, plenty of booth seating, nice atmosphere, nicely decorated. The menu is extensive -- 6 to 8 pages of nice Italian platters (I recently had... More

on our way back home from a Maine vacation - it's a cut above diner food in that it is a larger restaurant but it's comfort food all the way. Italian is especially good (have had a few other things - not so good) and service has always been pleasant. What Maples is not - a 5* restaurant. It's just... More

Due to heavy traffic on I-84 got off and found this place. Well worth it! Friendly staff and diversified menu. Clean and comfy.

It's a typical type of diner food. Some sections of the restaurant are not as light as others. The staff always seem to be busy but it doesn't seem to be that many people in the restaurant to make them look so busy.

The Maples is our favorite local restaurant: Friendly fast service, fresh food, generous portions, meals soon served piping hot from the kitchen, and modest prices. Family recipe specials augment the extensive reliable menu. Healthy or comfort, plenty to choice from. The atmosphere is clean and casual: mostly booths, a small bar area and plenty of parking onsite. The Maples is... More

Mouthwatering roasted chicken, served worth a potato and veggie. My husband enjoyed a club sandwich on to occasions. Our last visit I enjoyed the chicken parmesan it was equally delicious. Prices were comparable to other local eateries. We all enjoyed our meals. Service was decent. Wakes could be a bit more attentive but she was pleasant.
