Second time here. Since we're from Canada, we don't get here often. Today, we made a conscious decision to stay overnight in Ironwood so we could stay at the Budget Host here (which we have reviewed before) AND that was so we could come to this restaurant for supper. We literally have put off meals all day driving so we would have a good appetite for the great meals here!

The host seated us in a booth (great as they are large) after a short wait. Being Saturday supper time, and given the popularity of this restaurant, we were pleased the wait was less than 10 minutes stated when we walked in.

Our server, Kristine, was smiley, friendly and social. She took our drink orders and got them so we had some time to check out the menu. As my husband had come specifically for steak, he ordered the 16 oz. Black Angus rib eye, along with a baked potato and brown beans as the sides. I ordered the 12 oz. Black Angys rib eye, with mashed potatoes and a Ceasar salad as the two sides. Mashed are made in house from potatoes, not a mix. Salad dressing was creamy but not too much so and the taste was good. Steaks were excellent, done medium - rare as requested and they WERE actually that! No sending these back!

The mushrooms and onions side we had asked for seemed a tad small to us and we mentioned that to our server. She explained that that was 1 order which we had asked to split, and I agreed that this was the case. We were asking not criticizing. Kristine took it upon herself to talk to the chef and then informed us very politely that the chef was making us more of the side since we had expressed that we felt the size was not very large. Now THAT is working for the customer! Thank you Kristine, chef and management.

Our opinion still stands that the Maplewood Steakhouse is well worth aiming for if you are traveling across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan along hwy 2 east of Wisconsin. Awesome!

We ate at this restaurant during our stay at Indianhead Ski Resort. Pleased to find they had a gluten free menu. Food was good, service was friendly, all in all a pleasurable dining experience.

I had the "Garlic Shrimp Scampi", with grilled veggies. They were picture perfect! The taste was outstanding! Portions were huge! Prices very reasonable. The service was great! My waitress was very attentive, nice, and fast. I will be back! I would highly recommend "Maplewood Steakhouse"!!

We ski up here 3-4 times every winter and have always been disappointed about the restaurants. We stopped for wings after skiing and they were excellent! So good, in fact, that we went back for dinner. Service was good, food was above average and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely be back!

This was our second time at Maplewood Steakhouse (in five weeks) and we will definitely be back! We had the 6oz Fillet that was dry-rubbed for 24 hours with their secret rub, seared to lock-in the flavor and then grilled to perfection (medium rare). I'm very picky about my steak and this was excellent.

They were extremely busy both times we were there, which is a testament to their great food and service; but well worth the wait. Our server Emily was very attentive and professional even though she was slammed.

The bar/grill area has a much richer ambiance, so if you are on a date or a special night; definitely asked to be seated there.

btw...The ice cream brownie desert was a great way to finish off a fantastic meal.

Thanks Maplewood for another GREAT meal and fantastic evening :)
