“Best View on Fire Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Okay...so this is a restaurant that I have been dining/drinking at for over 20 years...one of my favorite places. This restaurant has the best deck on Fire Island for sunsets, watching people frolick in the bay and late night fun!

The menu has something for everyone...from the landlover who wants a juicy steak to the person who wants to dive into a big bowl of steamers and a lobster. Make sure to have the lobster bisque...yummy! Great wine list!!!

This is a great establishment to come to for lunch, appetizers/happy hour (good specials M-F from 4-6), dinner and/or late night. Not only does Maguire's have the biggest deck in Ocean Beach, it also has the biggest dance floor!

This is my go to restaurant on Fire Island...a place I have spent MANY summers!!

“Hands Down The Best Restaurant In Ocean Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012 via mobile

Everything was perfect! Try the prime rib, or the super fresh tuna pokie. The coconut bread pudding served with ice cream is great too! DELICIOUS! Definitely coming back. A popular place for the islanders, great bar and awesome nightlife! Karaoke on Thursdays and a DJ and dancing Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Top it with the best sunset on Fire Island, what could be better?

“Sunset, bay view and lobster, you can't go wrong!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011 via mobile

Dining on the deck at Maguires during sunset is the perfect end to a day at the beach. The lobster is always excellent and I have always loved their home baked bread. A romantic spot or bring the kids and let them play in the playground just next door. We highly recommend Maguires!

“Hostess was not very accomodating and extremely rude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

The food at this restaurant was excellent, however the hostess treated the customers like it was a privilege to eat on plastic chairs at this restaurant. I wouldn't return even with great food due to the fact that the manager and hostess were so nasty and rude! There are plenty of other places to eat besides this dump!
