You have to try their burgers, they're really great! The fries are good too. The staff is really nice and the prices are very reasonable!

This was one of our favorite stops on the trip. It's an interesting little bar with awesome southern cooked food and great cocktails. You have to stop here if you're in the area. I highly recommend the Mac N Cheese with Bacon.

Great meal. Fun interior. Good cocktail. Attentive service. I read a few negative reviews but decided to ignore them.

The first time I went to Maggie Brown's I didn't know what to expect. The manager of the restaurant came into my business and invited me to check it out. I was glad I did. I loved it, the decor is very intimate, and makes you feel like you're in a turn of the century speakeasy. There are board games... More

A group of us went for lunch. Single server tried hard to get to everyone in the place. Luckily we went at the end of the lunch rush so we had her to ourselves and were served quickly. All the meals were good. Flakey fried chicken. Corned beef hash an eggs with some good adds to the hash like onions,... More

Maggie Brown used to be great, but since they switched chefs recently the food has been absolutely terrible. I nearly gagged at my most recent brunch there, and am sad to say I won't be going back, even though the atmosphere is still lovely. The new chef has no concept of flavor.

Went for breakfast. Sat before the couple next to us but they ordered and were served first. Table was sticky. The Tabasco sauce bottle was so caked with crusty gunk that it was gross. My mug of coffee which took 10 minutes to get had coffee grinds all over the outside of it. This place was just not at all... More

Traditional comfort food, but done perfectly, and in a cool space with a small bar. Maggie Brown (located in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn) gets crowded during dinner hours and was defintiely worth the wait; Thoughfully prepared almost as if you were on the journey with the chef to find that right combination for the perfect(For example.. you must...

Brunch standard, probably go there way too often. The only con is that sometimes the service is either super slow and unattentive or there's a gi-normous wait, but usually the food makes up for it.
