Good Lunch two days in a row

We ate lunch here two days in a row. Let me start by saying I would not want to be the hostess-while trying to seat people, she had to deal with people changing tables and others demanding change. She handled it well. The food was very good. The hot lobster roll was excellent. The fish cake... read more

My husband and I went to Maguire's for lunch one day and we had a wonderful time. We sat out on the covered deck; listened to great music; ate delicious food; drank tasty drinks; were served by very nice servers, and left feeling very satisfied. We liked it so much that we returned with friends a few days later and... More

Ate here for lunch over Labor Day weekend. Food was good, not great and based on other reviews I was expecting great. Prices were high for lunch but it is fire island so it was to be expected.

Food was good , but took over an hour to be served. Told owner this, but he didn't seem to care. Not even an apology or explanation!

Ate here for lunch today and had a great meal. I had an awesome watermelon salad with arugula, almonds, feta cheese, grilled salmon and balsamic vinaigrette. My wife and daughter both had the special, a lobster and crab roll. LK dishes were excellent.

The last two times we've been there, the food was consistently poor ... dont think it is the kitchen's problem but poor restaurant management ... too many customers coming in at once ... it's a shame ... such lovely outdoor space

After showing the manager that my son found a vitamin in the fries, and completely losing our appetite, the manager thought it would be compensatory to take off the fries and a round of drinks. Ridiculous. If this was my restaurant I would have comp'd the entire bill and offered a gift certificate to ensure we come back. So instead,... More

The best thing about Maguires is the terrific view of the Bay. On a nice day, the view on the terrace is so pleasant that the food is irrelevant. As for the food, we had an average lunch. A reasonable good piece of grilled swordfish with a fairly pedestrian sauce on top and a good burger. Service was helpful and... More

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
