I ordered the roast turkey dinner 2x within days of each other, from this location, and got different portions: Turkey: 1 slice on order 1, and 3 slices on order 2 Cranberry sauce: none on order 1, 1 T with order 2 Potatoes: 1 creamy...scoop with order 1, and 1 humongous scoop on order 2 ( but these were dry) Stuffing: got cut up carrots mixed with craisins for stuffing on order 1, and tasty stuffing with order 2 Gravy came with both orders My dh ordered pasta dishes both times, which were ok Bottom line is I hope the kitchen is able to give consistent portions of great-tasting food. Remember to tip, and tip very well during these stressful times!More

Pros - Covid protocols in place. Taste of food was very good. Cons - Waiting 30 minutes for starters, cold and lukewarm food, waiting another 30 minutes for mains, cold coffee, very little attention paid to by wait staff. We saw MANY to-go orders leave...the kitchen. We couldn't help but wonder if they prioritized the to-go orders at the expense of the in-restaurant diners.More

We like Maggie McFly's and this was our first visit to this location. Lunch specials named Executive Lunch were delicious and good prices.We sat in a booth near the window but noticed the unique bar menu signs. The bar drinks are categorized by whiskey, beer,...wine and others along with bar bites. Luckily, we had time for a leisure lunch but would have been worried about time if it was a workday lunch. Staff was friendly but very busy as it's a large restaurant.More

Decent place for shopping mall fare. It's convenient after a day at the adjacent mall. They have a modest drink and food selection. There's a covered outside dining area with a few tables, but we opted to dine inside, since it was rather chilly, and...the place was mostly empty. Staff wore masks, the place had a small sanitizer dispenser by the door, and the menus were accessible on your phone after scanning a QR code conspicuously displayed on the table.More

Maggie McFly's is a restaurant attached to the mall (The Shoppes at Buckland Hills). Despite COVID-19, seating is in side or outside. We choose outside as the weather was pleasant. We were seated quickly by the hostess. Our waitress, Nikki was excellent! Attentive, informative and...smiling! Menu is via a QR Code, so bring your phone. Recommend the BBQ ribs - the meat literally fell off the bone and melted in your mouth, while the salmon was delectable as well! We're from out of town and have traveled/eaten extensively and can honestly give our eating experience a 5 star. I was very surprised at the other reviews that were less than stellar...More

Was at Buckland Hills and wanted to find a good place to eat lunch that had outdoor seating and this came up. What started out as promising turned into a consensus that we likely will not give it a second chance. Server started out ok...but disappeared for very long periods of time. Got appetizer and then waited 45 minutes for 3 salads. No comment, no apology, nothing. Salads were mediocre at best...mine was the French Country salad that was supposed to have beets in it...granted the description didn't state whether they were sliced or quartered and how many so I suppose finding approximately a dozen diced pieces gives me nothing to complain about in the beet category but... The salad was served in a very deep bowl without any thought to presentation and where the other ingredients sunk to the bottom under the mountain of greens and was basically tasteless! Sorry, but a little more effort was needed. As we were waiting for the check, a party of 2 young women was seated 6 feet away and had the same server. They got their drinks immediately and their food was in front of them within 10 minutes! Could it have been because they were young and very attractive blondes and not a grandmother? Last... the server was not wearing a mask and was clearly closer than 6 feet to any of us!More

Ordered to-go, they apparently didn't have the ingredients. I just paid $20 for a salad which contained mixed greens with a few pieces of mango - if they didn't have ingredients I suppose they should say so. Lettuce and mango not a great salad never...mind paying $20.More

Went here last night with family. Not at all busy & were seated promptly. Having eaten here many times, we were familiar with the extensive menu, which is almost overwhelming! Waitress was pleasant & efficient. Two of us ordered the Fish & Chips which sounded...interesting. Our son requested the fries be well done as he doesn't like them soggy. When the meals were brought to the table, we noticed there was no coleslaw on the plate as was described on the menu. The waitress seemed surprised & asked if we still wanted it. Upon starting to eat, we both realized the fries were extremely undercooked, soggy & rubbery. Wherever I have ordered fish & chips, it has always been served as a fish fillet. There were more like a fish stick which was way overcooked, in what must have been old oil as they were mostly fried batter with dried fish inside. Also only warm at best as were the fries. I think the best part of the meal was the coleslaw!! Not at all happy with the overall experience! Don't know if we'll be back.More

Met with family from around New England for a retirement celebration. It took a while for our waiter to take our orders, but once we ordered, food arrived quickly and was delicious. Interesting and tasty appetizers and generous and tasty main dishes.
