Was an honest customer at "Maple Lawn" for year's with good food and outstanding service. This morning had breakfast and was the only customer in the restaurant. They kept pushing the mask and the restaurant was like having breakfast in a prison camp. The old...day's are over with at this restaurant. My best advice, keep away and hope, we discover some for sale on the windows soon.More

Stopped on our way thru traveling- friendly cozy place. Good coffee, sweet coleslaw, warm dinner rolls and generously portioned dinners of farm fresh liver, never frozen BIG beef burgers and homemade mashed potatoes! Waitstaff was pleasant and attentive. Homemade ice cream and pies in many...flavors all we tried were very tasty. SADLY, the no sugar added is only a summer available item:(More

Been here for dinner before, but never for lunch. Predictably lunch was great. Great service, nice lunch options, reasonable prices, and great service.

We like to try local restaurants when we travel. The waitress was very friendly and asked if we had been there before. This was our first visit but we will stop again! She brought us a complimentary dish or warm chips and salsa. Delicious! My...husband had the liver and onions and said it was in the top 5 of all time liver and onion dishes. The burger was fresh, never frozen. We enjoyed our dinner but no room for dessert- next time!More

We went in excited for dessert. I met the hostess at the sign and told her that there were 5 of us and that we were just getting dessert. She asked if we would like to be served at the counter or if we would...like to be seated. I stated that we would like to be seated and waited on and not stand at the counter, especially since there were already 2 people being waited on and we were planning on ordering sundaes – the pizookie, a piece of Reese’s cake, and a brownie sundae, along with two other desserts. She said that we could be waited on at the counter and then sit to eat. I again explained that I would prefer to be seated and waited on. She then said that it would be a wait to clean up tables. There were many small tables empty but supposedly the large tables were filled/dirty. I said that was fine and she was not happy with my answer. She then left to bus the tables. A woman, a man, and their son came blazing into the restaurant, pushed past all 5 of us and up to the hostess station. The hostess quickly stopped bussing our table and seated them. I looked at the waitress Gabby and said, "We were waiting to be seated prior to them coming in." She just looked at me with large eyes. Then the manager came up and snipped that the hostess was bussing the table but because someone else came in she stopped. When the hostess returned she started saying that she thought that we had told them to go around us, which we did not. She then was justifying that we should have eaten at the counter. I explained that the young man working the counter was still making the ice creams for those that were there before us. She then stated that she would have made our ice creams. These are my questions: Why did she stop bussing our table to seat customers that came in after us? How would a table be cleaned up and ready for us to sit at if she was the one bussing the table and was also making the ice cream desserts that we wanted? I was extremely disappointed to be treated so poorly by your staff. I also want to commend Gabby for doing an excellent job serving us with a smile although I know that she was nervous to. I am disappointed by the rudeness of both your hostess and manager and do not feel that they demonstrated wanting returning customers. I did not receive my loyalty points or coupon, but honestly that is a moot point following the extreme rudeness by your hostess.More

Excellent service, good comfort food, terrific desert menu. The place is clean, in good shape, and nicely decorated. If you like a restaurant that is packed to the gills with people then I guess you could say that it has nice ambiance. It was a...little hectic and noisy for us, however. Although its a "dairy" we were pleasantly surprised to find that they serve beer and wine. Terrible selection of beer (only American lagers and lite beers, no imports or craft beer), but any port in a storm.More

Went there for dinner last night with a friend. It's definitely off the beaten path (for city folk), but what a pleasant surprise. Parking right in front and it's handicapped accessible with electronic sliding doors for the inner entryway. It's brightly lit with an ice...cream counter as you walk in. Booths and tables are in the back to the right and left. We were seated quickly and spent quite a bit of time perusing the menu. It's fairly expansive ranging from wraps to salads, steak to shrimp, pasta and a great selection of appetizers. Wait staff was extremely pleasant and efficient. We were there for about an hour, but only because we were relaxing and chatting. Food was served in about 10 minutes - they were a bit busy but not crowded at all. We got ice cream (fresh home made hard-packed) to go that was deliciousness! I will definitely be back for more!More

If you are looking for good old fashioned home cooking you will enjoy this restraunt. They make their own ice cream. Nice place to take the whole family.

There was 9 of us in our group of ladies and we had a great time. The food was very good. All 9 of us were pleased with our meals and the mini senior sundaes were a great treat. This group gets together once a...month and we will definitely be going back.More
