“Fantastic food in a fun, funky atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner at Maggies on the Monday after the Applefest weekend. We were surprised at how crowded the restaurant was on a weeknight off season. It must speak to the quality of the food. I ordered a bleu cheese/cajun chicken salad. It was full of delicious bleu cheese crumbles and had seasoned, moist, slices of chicken on top. At many other restaurants these salads come with a few pieces of chicken and just a tad of cheese...not at Maggies!!! My husband ordered the Southern Sandwich which had Portugese sausage, cole slaw, and grilled veggies. He added sweet potato fries on the side. His meal was delicious as well. I have to say, the service was slow. Our waitress was friendly but not very attentive. Maybe they didn't anticipate the crowd they had that night. We will definitely keep Maggies on our "must visit" list for Bayfield. We will keep in mind that our time there will be at a relaxed pace and will arrive early if we want to be seated right away.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Good food at a decent price. Loved the decor. Staff was excellent! The drink specials were fun too! Were in Bayfield over Apple Fest and didn't have to wait too long for a table - very happy with our visit!

“Spice of Bayfield life”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Cute environment. Excellent service and food in a place which seems like it would be busy all the time. Had been recommended by our innkeeper.

“Great menu and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

The first thing you notice is that Maggie's has very unique flamingo decor, but its very welcoming. Second thing we noticed was the extensive menu. The type of menu that makes you want to order more items than your stomach can handle. The trout salsa appetizer was unique and delicious. The server we had was quick and attentive. I then had the whitefish sandwich and it didn't disappoint. Next time we go to Bayfield we will be sure to stop back here again and try something different.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I think the hype for this place is because it is "kitchy". The food was just ok, nothing I'm craving to go back for. The service too, was just ok. The place can be kind of noisy. If I do ever find myself there again, I would order the Flamingo Tenders...those were pretty good.
