We've been coming to Magwyer's for years and it's always been our favourite pub in town. Since they renovated it accommodates even more guests and has a wonderful atmosphere. We visit once a week at least for wing night with friends or for family dinners. Their wings are also fantastic! If you go on wing night (tuesdays) make sure to... More

We were a large party of friends. We were coming out for dinner and drinks. The food is not the greatest like people have stated in previous comments. The food all came out cold. The service was really slow. Food Orders were missed. They cater more to elderly and small families. Not impress on my first visit. 😟

Very good service, a decent menu with quite a bit of variety and a good selection of beers make this a great choice for a "pub night". A recently updated menu and extensive remodelling have turned around a pub that was starting to get a little run down. A good spot for supper and a couple of drinks with friends.

Have eaten at this decent pub many times. The food is much better than your usual pub fare and the menu extensive. My wife and I have tried several dishes; fish, pasta, steak, liver, roast beef and it has all been excellent as are the salads. Try the daily specials, always worth the money. Nice pint of Guinness and Kilkenny... More

Found this place on Yelp and decided to give it a go. Good food and friendly enough. The special was an 8oz pub steak veg and starch with a pint for $12. I was all in and it was pretty good. Good hockey and sports talk at the bar and they were not shy about including a stranger to the... More

Decided almost at the last minute to dine out for this special day. Booked the day before and chose our entrée. Since my wife and I both like sea food the lobster was the obvious choice. Our salads were tasty and just sufficient to get our appetites tuned up for the two large lobsters that followed. Juicy and cooked to... More

Went back to Magwyers after a lengthy absence. The last few times we went, the food was horrible and the atmosphere claustrophobic. Now, the pub has expanded and is quite a pleasant place! The service was terrific, and the food was okay - not superb, but not horrible either. It's a nice place...great selection of beer on tap, and you... More

Been a regular since it opened 15 or so yrs ago. Owners Tommy & Crystal are the best. Their staff is always on their toes & look after you. Lots of choices on tap, and food is always great. They need to start offering local craft beers though, and some Ontario wine! Looking forward to their new expansion.

The best wings I have ever had, but the service is horrible. I have had something wrong with my order every time I have visited. If you are particular about service that may pose a problem, but the wings and most of the items are amazing. Picture on profile is not taken at Magwyers, small place bit dingy looking.
