I love the food, mood and my date as well. I love seafood gumbo, catfish entree' with red bean and rice. That is one the key to my heart.

Service is impeccable at the Maple Tree Inn. Keep an eye out for the Chef Specials and don't be surprised when he stops by to ask how you liked it. This is such a friendly place with fantastic selections. They have great bar selections too.

The Maple Tree Inn at 13301 Olde Western Avenue in Blue Island is proof that there are some very good restaurants in the south suburbs. This is a spinoff of a Louisiana Brasserie that specializes in Cajun/Creole cuisine. You have to get used to it, of course, because crawfish and catfish and gumbo and red beans and cornbread and red-eye... More

Beautiful place but lately owners are trying too hard to be unusual with their food and drink specials. We've had a few and they weren't very good. The shrimp, ettoufee, beer (if its cold enough), jambalaya are good. The fancy specials just aren't very good for the $. Need some food for kids on the menu.

My wife and I were born and raised in Blue Island, Chicago's closest south suburb. In the 1950s and 1960s, one of the most popular restaurants was Helen's Old Lantern, owned and operated by a Damon Runyon-type character named Helen Sadunas for nearly 50 years. The restaurant began as a roadhouse in the 1800s, then became a neighborhood tavern. There... More
