1. Frogstone Grill (Personally recommended by ValleyFair Dental staff member: Shannon)
Frogstone Grill is just down the street from ValleyFair Mall. This grill is a landmark restaurant in Maple Ridge, it’s been a part of our community for almost 14 years!
Did you know that Frogstone Grill has an interesting history? Owners Todd and Shari Pratt used to raft along the river and got to know many areas, including one called “the frog”. This massive rock looks like a giant frog on a stream with the water flowing around it. “The frog” has stood the test of time as it was originally named by the natives hundreds of years ago. This rock inspired Todd and Shari Pratt to open Frogstone Grill and it’s been a part of our community for so long ─ it really has stood the test of time.
With a unique blend of casual and exotic flavours, like Cranberry Tea Chicken, you’re sure to find something delicious for each member of your family. From pastas, to burgers to steaks, Frogstone Grill provides dishes that are perfect for the whole family in a casual and comfortable dining environment. Visit this landmark in Maple Ridge when you book your appointment at ValleyFair Dental! You can book appointments for the whole family and then enjoy a great afternoon or evening out.

2. Paliotti’s Italian Restaurant (Personally recommended by ValleyFair Dental office manager: Julie)
If you’re in the mood for excellent Italian cuisine, check out Paliotti ─ recommended by our friendly office manager, Julie!
Located close to ValleyFair Dental, Paliotti’s Italian Restaurant has a roof shape similar to a circus tent so it’s hard to miss. When Joe Paliotti first found this building, it was an old drive-in burger joint. He then converted the building to a sit down restaurant but left the original and unique roofing. Over the last 34 years, three generations of Paliotti’s have been serving large portions of great Italian food with complimentary bread and dip. It’s a wonderful family-run restaurant in the heart of Maple Ridge, with another location in Abbotsford as well.
