Consistently good food!

We come here on a weekly basis for a family get-together. Although we've tried other bars/restaurants in the surrounding areas, we keep ending up back here due to the consistently higher quality of the food. They have rotating specials (half-price burgers on Mondays!) and great menu selections as... read more

We have been going to Magerk's for years. Food was always decent & it's pretty kid friendly. The menu changed sometime in the last year or so - to my children's dismay. No more tater tots, no more grilled cheese... Really not a huge deal for adults. My kids got over it and we went back anyway. Our last visit... More

I was taken out to lunch here for my 2nd day at a new job. Great atmosphere, really nice bar. The food and service were great as well. Probably not a place to go to daily for lunch, due to costs, but definitely a great choice for an occasional nice meal or date.

My husband and I were at the end of a 3 day stay in Fort Washington and just wanted a light Sunday evening meal. Magerk's was not far from our hotel, was not crowded, had a nice atmosphere. We explained that we were looking for something light and the waitress, Bree, made a couple of recommendations. Because I can not... More

Went here with a group of eight for dinner on a Friday night. First off, it is a bar/pub so conversation was difficult at best due to the noise. We had some good appetizers in the pretzel with crab dip and chicken wings. The bulk of the menu consists of sandwiches , salads and burgers. The hook on the menu... More

I had an early lunch here, so this was before mingling with the "madding crowds" that often come here. Magerk's is an impressive place. The stone and deep wood and mirror motif in the main bar area gives the place a comfortable, clubby feel. The music is designed to attack a younger crowd, but is not too loud. There are... More

Magerk's is a huge typical irish pub. Pretty large menu with a little bit of everything and by everything I mean items like sushi which you wouldnt expect for pub food. My co-worker and I recently dined here for lunch- we sat at the bar so we could get in and out pretty fast. I ordered a seafood salad- It... More

I haven't been here since it was the Bent Elbow, just a bar! We came in for an early dinner on a Saturday night. Wow it was really good. Everything was fresh and the service was spot on. I was really surprised that the "local pub" had turned into a really great restaurant. I will definitely be back!!!

So I chose this restaurant for lunch partly based on location, but also based on some of the good reviews I read here. It sounded like their prices were reasonable and food was decent pub fare. I also checked out their website and saw that the "Daily Special" for Wednesday is $5 sushi rolls, and that sounded appealing. But when... More
