I was stuck in traffic on 84, and getting hungry, so I took a shot at "the next exit" and found myself at Maples. Glad I stopped - very friendly staff, great food, and an excellent value. I had one of the specials that day - Lasagna! - and it was excellent. I'm a fan of the diner / family... More

I had been here before, last year, and enjoyed my time then and did now. I liked the service and the staff. The food was outstanding! When I go, I always ask if there are any specials. And.....they are a great value and the quality is fantastic!!!

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
