Visited here during a stay in Belfast and was enamoured by this lovely place. The milkshakes are to DIE for and are colossal. The place itself feels a little cramped, but overall there's a brilliant range of food on offer, all of generous sizes and served by friendly staff.

We were advised to go here when we arrived in Belfast by staff in our hotel. It was early morning and they serve excellent Ulster breakfasts. We returned a couple days later in late afternoon, just before leaving for the airport and again the food was great. Some of us had soup and sandwiches and others had bowls of chilli... More

I have been going to Maggie Mays regularly, and is a very reliable place if you are looking for a filling meal with no frills. Their Ulster fry is a very good breakfast, and I enjoy their burgers. They also do a very good beef stew, and champs. It is the kind of place that gets crowded at key times... More

Tasty, stodgy food. Relaxed student feel to Maggie Mays, however it can feel a bit cramped sometimes when busy. Very good selection of veggie options and I've had the veggie fry in past which is excellent and very filling. Veggie lasagna and wraps etc are tasty too. Not a place if your on a healthy eating kick - but good,... More

This is the third chance I've given this place, purely because of the hype it has generated among some student friend circles. It's packed tightly, tables have that unclean feeling and they don't take card! Food was always just ok, but my most recent (and last ever) visit was poor. Mine and my girlfriend's French toast and pancakes "with maple... More

I discovered Maggie's by total happenstance, with no idea of how popular it was until I opened the unassuming door to discover a completely crowded small interior. I enjoyed it so much though, that I had lunch here two days our of three during my stay in Belfast. The seats are not comfortable, its very crowded, the food did take... More
