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.

We have visited more times than we can remember. Easy to find, easy parking. Great food in a lovely date-night restaurant. Always something delicious to eat.

We visit The Maples for good food and drink. When power is off they have generator and keep the restaurant and the patrons happy.

RUN FROM THIS DUMP ! The people who run this restaurant are uncaring, moronic imbeciles. Let me explain: I came here for a meal, sat down with my wife and while looking over the menu asked for two glasses of water. So far, no problem. The waitress brings the waters on a platter with an iced tea for another table.... More
