Hubby & BFF described Fish as...greasy & rubbery, hubby advises had he been there 2 weeks earlier it might .. Might have tasted fresh. Mac n Cheese had... More

Breakfast was delicious and prices couldn't be lower. Everything was delicious, except I tried the banana bread french toast - it just didn't turn out to be that great of a combination. I wish I would have just gotten the regular french toast which looked better. Sausage gravy and biscuits was excellent, and the omelette breakfast was more food than... More

We were there for a fish fry on our first visit-to say that we were disappointed is an understatement-the fish had been in a warming pan from the obvious dryness and the cool temperature. The coleslaw was a disaster. The roll was ice cold and disintegrated when we tried to apply the butter pat that accompanied it. Everywhere I looked-there... More

Made my way down last week, forgot how charming it is there. Had some delicious homemade soup and their homemade special of the day. Both were exceptional... can't wait to get in there for their breakfast (had to check out their menu before I left.)

We originally were going to have breakfast at The Classic cafe but they didn't want to open 2 minutes early so we decided to go to Maple Lawn for breakfast and I am glad we did. The corned beef hash was homemade and not out of a can and was very good. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the service... More

After a previous visit was not to my liking. I decided to try again. It was a pleasant experience. The food was very good (Fish Fry) as was the service. The restaurant was nice and clean also. Try this spot,I'm sure that you would enjoy it.

It's always nice to have a restaurant nearby that consistently serves good food. I have been eating fish frys from Maple Lawn Dairy for many years now and have never been disappointed. I used to always order the fried fish, but have recently started ordering the broiled fish and it is equally good. I also recommend ordering the macaroni and... More

Stop in at least once a week, very rarely have a bad meal or service. Always enjoy thier wide selection of options, from breakfast to dinner to dessert. Never left feeling unsatisfied, and trying to get past their homemade ice cream on the way out is never easy. Glad to have this lovely, locally owned Gem in my hometown.
