“Christmas 2012”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

have visited this historical house a few times and am in awe over the retention of all of the artifacts and construction being kept up. This was a Christmas visit o the whole house was open for the function.

“Country Cooking at it's Finest!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This is one of the Island's secrets ... and deserves to be better known!
The chef focuses on rather limited but varied menu items ... with all specialties featuring local veggies and meats professionally prepared in a cozy, country setting. Their three course menu is inexpensive, delicious and and exceptional value ... it's always country cooking at it's finest!
Call ahead for opening hours and reservations suggested.

“Superior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

Well worth the stop for Lunch, but call ahead, as they are often full (it's 2 small rooms). Most of everything is made in the kitchen, and the desserts are fantastic. Great place for couples. Lunch is an exceptional value for the price. Dinner (only a few nights a week) is a bit more expensive, but still worth it. My wife and I have put this on a "must return" for next years vacation.

“Like at visit to your grandma's kitchen, only much much better... Sorry grandma!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Entering Maplethorpe will take you back... It may feel like visiting an Island farm kitchen of the 1950s. At least that is the image I had. If you get a table in the dining room you should be able to see into the kitchen around the corner.
But you want to know about the food that comes out of that kitchen. Absolutely outstanding! They emphasize fresh and local products -- really great!
I grew up on PEI and my wife and I went one Friday night with local friends and family... Their recommendation (thanks very much).
I had PEI-grown BBQ pork ribs, others had various main courses. Then great desserts. We were all mighty pleased.
Service was friendly and very casual... Very "downhome".
Note: if you need something, do ask! Your hosts would be mortified if you left disappointed and there was something they could have done about it.
As I said, you can imagine it's a visit to grandma's and she really, REALLY wants to spoil you... No matter what your Mom says. That's what Maplethorpe is like.

Note they are not open every day; so check their hours before your visit.
