The Maples Restaurant in Charleroi, PA has been part of the Mon Valley for over 70 years, and has served valley residents good food for a long time. But it wasn’t until Richard Umbel and Mary Jane Sullivan took it over in 2008 that the quality and taste of the food were taken to the highest level.
The Maples was recently listed in the 10th position for The 25 Most Upscale Pittsburgh-Area Restaurants in the February 10-16, 2017 issue of the Pittsburgh Business Times. What’s more, the same listing cites The Maples as one of only two restaurants on that list with an average 5-star rating on Yelp.
Richard and Mary Jane’s stated goal in operating The Maples is to give their customers a better meal that they will remember for a long time to come. They want everyone who walks out their door to say that the two hours they were in The Maples was some of the best time they ever spent eating a meal. They prepare each dish the same way every time – the way they would prepare it if you were guests in their house, because you are, really, their valued guests.
When they took over the Maples, they trimmed the menu down considerably, so they can make each item on the menu as appealing and as delicious as possible. Each item is prepared from the best ingredients they can find. They don’t settle for anything less.
Richard and Mary Jane want to give you the best possible value for your time and your money. They are truly looking out for their customers. You don’t find much of that anymore.
If you’ve never been to The Maples Restaurant, please stop in. You (and your palate) will be pleasantly surprised, even excited. See you soon.
