Visited with family after having a good meal and experience first time. Tried different dishes and a cocktail. Creole Voodoo cocktail fruity and tasty. Crab moray ok. Oysters very good. Blackened scallops very good. Soft shell crab and BBQ shrimp good. Service is a little slow. It helps to review menu and know what you want. Check in on meals... More

This place is a wonderful hidden secret that ha been around for sometime now for what I am hearing, the place has a New Orleans flair and vibe to it, the food is outstanding and service was very nice. I would make a reservation if you plan on visiting because it keeps a nice crowd

Judging that without a reso last night "everybody" knows:. The wait would have been two hours plus. We opted for craft beers and apps at the bar. The beans and rice were straight up the river from NOLA, as was the crabcake appetizer. Hubs ordered a crab Mornay thing which first was presented as stuff buried under bread crumbs. He... More

Had a great time there - i Love the ambiance of the restaurant, people are really nice and attentive staff. The food is really tasty but careful for the sensitive ones, it is spicy !! Loved also the key lime pie :)

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.
