Mapleside Farms has had a 'colorful' history. When opened it was a destination for several reasons, not the least of which was food. Now the Orchard House has taken an excellent ambiance opportunity and turned it onto a mediocre dining experience. Of three meals only one was passable. The other two were uninspired to say the least. Service was ok... More

This isn't the old restaurant at Mapleside that we all experienced. With the new restaurant owner and management, the food is excellent, the service is attentive and the menu choices are great. Couple that with the fantastic view, this restaurant is an excellent choice.

This restauarant used to be excellent and I was pleased to be taking a friend from out of town to brunch yesterday. The restaurant is under new management. The first sign that there was a problem was the empty parking lot. The next sign was the dirty carpet. We were seated at a "clean" table with crumbs on it. I... More

This spot has had a number of restaurants, but none successful. The present one is limited by a lack of restaurant common sense and apparently by funding. After being ignored by the blonde haired hostess more concerned with her conversation at the bar, we walked into a uncomfortably warm dining room. The buffet line was almost void of ribs and... More

Made reservations for 8 people on a busy Friday during lent, we were sat down within 5 minutes of arriving. Servers were excellent, friendly patient and very helpful. The meals we all ordered were great. fish dinners were very good, some ate at the buffet the rest ordered off of the menu. Prices are reasonable and the experience was positive... More

I had not been to this restaurant since it was the old "Mapleside" . I must admit I was looking for a few of the old favorites that we always looked forward to. There is no more waldorf salad. We had a group of 8 on a Sunday afternoon, which was not an issue at all. I had made a... More

I had stopped in to book a party, talked to Megan. E-mailed her the next day (as she said that is the best way to get a hold of her) to confirm that I wanted to go ahead with the booking. Didn't hear back from her, called a few days later to try to talk to her. She wasn't in,... More

Needs a VERY thorough cleanup (carpet & floor are filthy)and would be greatly improved with some remodeling. It has been thru a number of owners or managers in recent years with little change in anything. Servers try to do a good job, but they are spread to thin and have to run around all over the place. The food has... More

I went to The Orchard House and was very pleasently suprised at how amazing every aspect of our experience was! We watched the sunset from our seats while enjoying the vegetable bruschetta, exquisite meatloaf (yeah I said meatloaf!), homemade mashed potatoes, and scrumptious bread pudding! You can tell everything is made from scratch and with an experienced chefs's hands! Not... More

The service was good....but ...the food was just okay. My husband and I got the Chicken Marsala and for 14.99 per plate I thought it was over priced. One chicken breast on the small size. The breast was not cleaned to remove fat and vein so you had to cut around that. The breast was on top a mound of... More
