We had a really nice lunch on our way to Sturbridge Village this 4th of July weekend. Staff is so friendly and the food was way better than the average diner. We all loved it. So much so, that my kids requested that we go for lunch on our way back to NY. Great place to stop. We will be... More

The staff was friendly but getting them to notice you or help is like pulling teeth. My order wasn't the way I asked but I ate it anyways. Waitress took 15 minutes to take our order and another 25 to deliver it to us but it was hot. Food was ok but bland. Probably wont be going back. Better options... More

We went to Maples for lunch and as usual the service and food was great. The wait staff and hostess were very friendly and the food came out hot and delicious. The prices at Maples are very reasonable and you get a lot of food.

Maples isn't all that different from most diners in terms of offerings, but the service is great. Very friendly and attentive staff. Price are more than reasonable and your food will arrive quickly. New menu items pop up from time to time. Great omelettes and there is an egg club sandwich to die for.

Hadn't been here in several years, but was driving through and decided to stop for breakfast. Although the ownership has changed, you still get really good food with a home-cooked feel to it. Even though it was busy, the chef was able to tweak our omelette a bit to give us something not on the menu. Previous dinners were very... More

I had not been to Maples in many years. Recently I took my daughter to dinner there. The Reuben was fabulous; hot and tasty. Sweet potato fries yummy and hot. I split a rice pudding with my daughter; it was rich, creamy, with just the right amount of sweetness. Wait staff was quick and courteous and anticipated my every need.... More

Been here on and off through the years It is consistant, but consistantly average. Nothing stands out. The staff is ok, but they do favor their regulars. The food is ok but the servings are a bit sparce. The value is ok. They need to change things up, it is a boring place to eat.

I usually hit Maples for breakfast only. Never crowded, but breakfast items are always satisfying. Clean unlike other area dinners. Nice folks serving tables. Lots of attention.

We were seated very quickly on a Saturday morning. Then the wait began. 10 minutes to see our server. 15 more for coffee and our order to be taken. Twenty more minutes for our food to arrive. Decent food, nothing special, except for the bacon. It was amazing! Smokey sweet and cooked perfectly! I will give it another chance soon... More
