Stopped in at about 10-ish on a Sat night. Full but not crazy crowded. Very cool place with amazing artwork and cool bench seating, neat bar, good music, and of course an amazing craft beer selection on tap. Very surprised to see the negative reviews...More

Sugar Maple is an interesting bar in the Bay View neighborhood. American craft beer is their claim to fame (right on their sign), and they had 62 on tap the night we visited. Judging by the bottles behind the bar, they can also make mixed...More

A beautiful bar, where the walls are covered in ever-changing paintings by the owner. The beer selection is great, and they always have some good pear and apple ciders and very good wines by the glass. We go for the jazz shows, which are always...More

I love this place. Being from Chicago, I don't get there all that often, but sometimes make a special trip, just so I can hang at the SM. The jazz festival they host there, and at their sister bar, the Palm, is incredible! How do...More

I seldom give a 1-star review. I feel that doing so requires some explanation, which I will attempt to give here. In a way it pains me to do so. I was going to The Palm (Sugar Maple's sister bar) before Sugar Maple existed. Back...More

Lighten up Francis. But seriously, we had the same experience as others and won't go back. It's too bad, they have a great selection of beer and the bartenders are great.

I believe I speak of the same man that everyone else commented on because my group of 10 was approached by him when trying to re-arrange tables. He called our group names before we even ordered our beer. The bar tenders were nice but it...More

Seems like a lot of people with bad service reviews, but we didn't experience any problems at all. Stopped in on a Saturday evening as it was just getting dark. We enjoyed a delicious craft beer recommended to us by the bartender, then went merrily...More
