Disappointing meal

We have been coming to this restaurant (Mapleside Farms) for years. It has changed hands and the quality is just not there. The only outstanding part of our evening was the excellent waitress! I ordered their signature chicken potpie ($13.99) and received a bowl of gravy with a few... read more

According to recent articles, Mapleside is leaning more toward the catering business, apparently giving up on the restaurant trade, which they seemed to do months ago with poor food and service. They are building a venue overlooking the valley for weddings and wedding receptions. Apparently, the Orchard House will be used for large groups -- showers, parties, etc. Hope their... More

Food is overpriced and very marginal at best - save your money and just buy the bakery from Corbos which has an outlet at Mapleside

Have been visiting this restaurant since the 90's, it had great food, reasonable prices and was very clean and family oriented. It has been obviously taken over by people who are trying to make a quick buck and have no idea on how to run a food service. We had a large table 11 people, I think one person really... More

I visited with a group of 8 other adults for lunch. We came in just after it opened. The buffet did not look very appetizing. It looked like leftovers from Sunday. My friend and I both ordered the Prime Rib au jus sandwich on a hoagy bun for $9.99. It was supposed to have grilled onions and mushrooms and cheese.... More

We visited with 8 kids and about 12 adults. The wait staff totally under trained took orders out of sequence. Thus causing good to be delivered at sporadic times, apps coming after main entrees, under cooked wings, etc. The IPA on draft is good but that's about it.

Since my previous visit, I again visited the Orchard House for lunch, since they were advertising a lunch buffet. This is a joke. It consisted of about 4 cups each of different greens, a couple of salad toppings, two or three sandwiches kept warm, and a little soup. This was hardly what I'd call a lunch buffet. Fortunately, others in... More

They had fresh fruit and danish , was good. They better turn things around or they won't have any customers. We were all disappointed. Date... More

I had to cut my own roast beef at the carving table. Nobody was there for about 15 minutes. Everything had been "out" for a long time. There were few selections I could identify without help from my friend. The breaded fish was rock hard and cold...etc...etc...etc. The lady serving drinks was nice and tried to be very helpful.

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
