I was visiting my nephew in Ocean Beach, Fire Island last weekend. We went out to dinner at Maguire's because of a recommendation from a friend. There were 3 of us, plus a 3 year old. I understand this is a seasonal business and the staff were mostly high school & college students. Lets start with the service: forgot my... More

We treated a party of 6 to dinner... 7:45pm reservation. We were on time and were seated at 8:05. Then we encountered 2 problems. 1st was zero liquor in the drinks. Not only can't you taste any liquor but 3 $12.50 cocktails everywhere else puts a hurt on my wife and my guest's wife. And they were perfectly sober. And... More

My husband and I had lunch here. This is our second time at Macguire's. The deck provides you with a great view of the bay. Our waitress was very nice and frequently checked on us. The food was delicious. We ordered wings, my husband had a cheeseburger, and I had the Caesar salad with shrimp. The Buddy's rum punch was... More

My husband and I recently took his 93 year old mother and her friend to lunch during the week. The deck was half full of patrons and the inside of the restaurant was empty. Despite this, the service was horrendously slow. It took 45 minutes for my husband to get a beer while we three women just were drinking water.... More

Dear Friends, Maguire's is the most tasteful meals that you will get on Fire Island. The food is always amazing and the prices are very fair. That being said, I don't know how often they have people of color at this establishment. I started coming to Fire Island a few years ago with my family. Summers are important to us... More

You are on Fire Island. Eat outside on the deck. The food here is good, with many options for diverse palates. I was not as overwhelmed by the food as I was with the view. Our waiter was friendly and attentive and knew the menu well. They also had some prix fixe options that made ordering easier. Also, the prices... More

Stopped in for lunch and drinks after spending some time at the beach and strolling through the village. The Bloody Mary's from the bar were great. They can make them extra spicy if you like it hot. Lunch was great and island priced ($$$). The fish and trips were as good as I have had in London and made with... More

I thought the view of the bay was the best part of our meal. The service was a bit lacking as it took a bit too much time get our drinks; about 30 minutes, We spent over 3 hours from the start of our arrival to when we actually finished our dinner. The food quality and taste wasn't that much... More

If you are a sandwich lover, order the BAT. It is bacon, avocado and tomato with fresh mozzarella. Served with garlic mayo. Even the bread is tasty. Best sandwich I ever had!
