I've eaten at the Maple Tree several times. Its always a good place to start off with for a first date. The atmosphere is conducive to romance, and the wait staff are superb. There are a large selection of unique drinks so dont be afraid to try something different. It has a mardis gras theme and if you are daring, try the purple beer! If you get there early enough, ususally when the doors first open, there are two tables tucked in a dimly lit corner that are the best for a date. The prices are moderate. So if you're in the south suburbs, make this your first option!
