We visited Maggie's Blue Rose during our Taste of Catalina tour. The food was awesome as were the drinks! The chips are handmade and served warm with the best salsa ever! Would definitely return to eat again!

We really enjoyed our Tacos, Chips, Salsa and Margaritas here. Service was friendly and prompt. It's loud on a cruise ship day -but they do have both indoor and outdoor seating. Right across from the beach - not terribly expensive. Would recommend!

Six of us stopped for lunch at this awesome Mexican restaurant on the Avalon walkway and we were not disappointed. Recommend the queso fundido, spicy calamari, shrimp enchiladas, lobster enchiladas, and steak enchiladas with red sauce. The Maggie Margarita was perfect. Great service, family friendly. Our only suggestion would to have hotter plates. Our food wasn't terribly hot.

Had both lunch and dinner here and the food was excellent both times. There is a good range of menu offerings, and I think there would be something for everyone. I particularly liked the presentation on triangular, brightly colored stoneware plates. It really added to the attractiveness and appeal of the food.

As a vegan I was able to order a bunch of sides to make my own vegan taco's and they were quite good BUT really should have been able to substitute for regular menu items and not have to pay more for so many sides.

Great Mexican spot right on the main drag of Avalon's boardwalk, right across from Green Pier. Came here after a dive day for the 36th Annual Avalon Underwater Clean up with a group of divers, and everyone wanted a drink and some grub! We all left stuffed and just liquored up enough to enjoy the rest of our afternoon. Had... More

We ate here for lunch after asking several locals for suggestions and we were not let down. I have food allergies and asked a few questions to the hostess which she was happy to help me. We were sat at a table for two with the kindest waiter. He was all smiles and chatted with us, we loved that. My... More

Large portions, excellent service and probably the best salsa in the Southwest. We were a party of four and could have ordered two meals and would still have had food to take home.
