Visited Maggies for their Friday night all-you-can-eat fish fry and got a good dinner at a reasonable price. My wife, on the other hand ordered Chicken Marsala which was only average and over-priced. While our server was very friendly, the service was slow. I had to waited quite some time (5... read more

Stopped last evening for the special: buy 2 appetizers, get a bottle (full size) of wine. Love the crab cakes...they're the best! Nachos were OK....and the wine was very nice. After the appetizers, we split a main course of stroganoff...nicely prepared with a perfect salad wiith a great balsamic vinegar reduction. I have to say, between the chef and great... More

Very Good Menu to select from, and the food was great. The service, extremely helpful and well versed. Nice little bar, gracious bartender and the drinks were exceptional. The bartender was a blonde lady, she knew how to serve the drinks and especially the wines. Nice assortment of wines, top shelf. If traveling through Onalaska, it is worth the stop.

My wife and I tried this restaurant on a random chosing one evening. We were not disappointed. The man behind the bar (perhaps the owner) was very strange and created an unnecessary awkward moment; that is the only negative thing we endured. The food was good, moderately priced. They do make a Brandy Old Fashioned properly (something that is rare... More

My husband and I thought we'd take a chance on this place for and were very disappointed. I had the three-cheese grilled cheese and cup of chili. The chili was horrible, straight out of the can. The grilled cheese was fine, but there was nothing special about it. Ended up spending $12 on a grilled cheese and inedible chili. My... More

Went to Maggie's twice this week because of the great service and food we had here! I enjoyed the three cheese grilled cheese sandwich with a cup of homemade chicken noodle soup and homemade potato chips and bistro sauce. Karen was serving us Wednesday and was very attentive and pleasant. Went again Thursday and the blue cheese burger was absolutely... More

We heard that this place had good food and I was craving cheese curds so we gave this a try as it was in good proximity to the hotel we were staying. We sat down quickly and ordered within 5 minutes. We ordered the cheese curds, then waited 30 minutes to get them. They cost $10 so we thought they'd... More
