Maple Tree Inn
Smoked brisket was excellent. A little fatty but overall sauce and taste was superb! Jalapeno cornbread is a favorite
It's small and intimate place. My server was truly a sweetheart (kind and very attentive.) I had Good food !!! And good drinks!!! . A nice go to spot!!!!
Loved the food and the service. Not so much your draft Hurricanes, tasted like plain orange juice. The cheese cake special was awesome. We were at the old location almost to the day before the fire and wanted to give the temporary location a try. Parking around the corner at the lot was convenient. I would definitely go back.
The staff were very helpful when we requested a certain dish.
The food was everything we had remembered. We will return. Thanks for keeping your good menu.
The menu is small but the food was amazing. Morgan our waiter was very attentive and made sure we were taken care of . I was charged for an entree I didnt order he apologized and gave me a ten dollar gift card for next time. I will definitely be going there again. I had an amazing margarita also.
The food and service were fantastic. We sampled big - Gumbo, oysters, crab cakes, bbq shrimp and fried catfish. Jumbo was Ok, quality of ingredients was good but needed more spice. The oysters were very tasty but a little small. The crab, shrimp and Catfish were A++. How you can fry catfish, get a nice thin but tasty crust on it and then have the inside perfect and NOT greasy at all. A work of art!
There new temporary location (fire in the old location) restricts the size of their food and beer menus. I’m looking forward to their expanded menus in the future. Until then, it is well worth a trip to Blue Island - I came from Andersonville on the northside of the city. I’d have no issue making the trip again!
I rarely post comments to OpenTable but want to call Maple Tree out as a terrific place. The new location opened after a fire at the larger old location in Blue Island and they’ve done a wonderful job on both the food and the facility. The bartenders and waitstaff are very outgoing and helpful. The food is authentic and the portions are large. Highly recommended
Great food and great service! Crab cake, catfish, brisket and gumbo we delicious!
As usual Maple Tree Inn never disappoints. The temporary location is charming and intimate. Service was impeccable as Ozzie our waiter was friendly and accommodating. The oysters were still sizzling when served and had a wonderful flavor. I had the burnt ends which were extremely tender and had a Smokey sauce. Drinks are amazing and quite a variety to choose from. Love Maple Tree Inn and will continue to return as they rotate their menu. Great evening
Fantastic food and great service! Can't wait to go back
The food was really good. The service was top notch. And the overall appearance and quality of the restaurant was great.
Shared some appetizers and drinks. Husband got input from Ozzie our server/bartender on stouts-he enjoyed. Ozzie is always a delight! Chardonnay on tap was good. Fried green napoleon app is different-served with squash instead of green tomatoes due to not being in season. Bland in comparison. Oysters were pretty good though. Found out that the location on Western will be there longer than anticipated which is disappointing. Missing the larger food menu and craft cocktails and beer selection, but hanging in there in the hopes that 'when they build it, we will come!'
Tho I truly miss their original location it was nice to be able to taste their food again in this temporary location. Service was great as always and food was delicious as well!
Reduced menu, but they are trying and still open after the fire.
Great meal and drinks!
Awesome as always! Ryan was great! Chef went above board for our anniversary! 3rd year in a row celebrating here! Thanks again!
Fried catfish was cooked very well & had a good flavor. Chicory coffee was a “tasty” dark roast but could’ve been hotter. Beignets were delicious! Service was excellent. Ambiance was nice. My friend & I went early (3:30pm reservation), so it was quiet and food was served rather quickly. I would like to return once their new original location reopens.
The food was good our server was a bit slow but overall a great experience
Great food,excellent service and fabulous music!
The brisket was cooked to perfection! I loved every morsel!
Ready for the original location to re open with the full menu. Only bummer was the seafood boil doesn’t include crawfish. Food is fantastic though and the place is always friendly.
What an amazing dinner. The Sunday Seafood Boil was just fabulous. And I have never had frog legs as good as the ones in the boil. Can't wait for the old building to get finished with the rebuild since the temporary place is a bit small and loud. But anyone who wants an authentic creole meal needs to come to Msple Tree Inn. Thank you Erich and Katie.
The location is temporary, but the food and service are a constant! The drink special was wonderful. The bartender came to our table to survey our level of satisfaction. We truly enjoyed our entree’s. We had the oysters as an appetizer. The taste was amazing, but the oysters were quite small. Overall, excellent option for a date or dinner!
One of our very favorite restaurants! Drinks and food are unique and delicious!
Good service . Would prefer standard black pants white tops or something like that . Everyone was super nice but uniformity is a little classier .
My wife and daughter took me out for Father’s Day. The food was amazing. I had the burnt ends which were magnificent. My wife had the catfish and said it was awesome. My daughter had the spare ribs and said that it was the best. I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner this evening!!!!!
HOLY S&$T!!!! This Fathers Day dinner was the best ever! The seafood boil was outstanding, the Hickory Swimps fantastic, desserts even better. The service and manager were very attentive.
Maple Tree Inn is always a good choice. 2nd time at this new location, parking was easy, food was good, and table was available upon arrival.
This was my first visit, I will be back. The catfish and jambalaya was great.
My last visit was last August so I was happy to get back.
The new location is very nice but I do miss the old place.
The wait staff was very professional and friendly.
I had the brisket and it was amazing.
The key lime pie was a perfect sweet slightly tart combination.
Topped off with a delicious cup of Chicory coffee.
I can’t wait for my next visit.
every thing was wonderful..... drinks good.... food great....
Just love your new place but do miss the old place too. Would love to see you get back your muffins , oysters 2x2x2 and your crab cakes from the old Maple Tree.
Went to celebrate my daughters graduation from high school. Great place, good food/drinks!
Food was amazing. Dare I say better then original location
Brisket, jambalaya and catfish were all great. The staff is always friendly and competent. We recommend it highly.
We loved the food! It was the same quality as we have grown to expect from Maple Tree.
Everything was good, except were out of 2 dishes on the menu. We were there for a 7:30 reservation, so was surprised that they were sold out. Otherwise, food and cocktails were outstanding
Great food as always. And the service is top notch-best on the side side. It’s a small restaurant, so the noise is high. I would definitely go back and often. And the cocktails are excellent too!
