Great place

Good food, priced right. The staff are incredibly friendly, efficient, and customer service conscious. Kielbasa is the best thing I had.

We visited this restaurant several times during our stay in Waterbury. Food is great, place is clean and the staff ever so nice. Go there you will not be sorry.

Good little diner. It has been around for decades. They must be doing something right. I have been here for breakfast and lunch. The food is always good.

Maples is a reasonably priced restaurant that has quite a large menu. Their daily specials are very good. Our server, Debbie, was very nice and very helpful to all our requests.

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
