We were there for a wedding which was sloppily organized. Start at 7 and buffet dinner wasn't served until 9:30 after a cocktail hour which started to run out of food. The food was fair for a catered event and not hot. The bar service was good although the liquor selection was not great and the wine was terrible.

Unmatched bay views and the best sun sets on Fire Island. Delicious food and great service. Prices are not out of control expensive which is nice plus....The best lobsterpalooza around

The food is okay. The service is usually good. The view is always great. It may and usually does get crowded but everyone is friendly and happy, probably because of the water

Not much to say. Didn't expect much but I was surprised at how slow the service and fast food feel this place has become. They're not even trying... fresh or no fresh fish.

Ok so every Thursday maguires has a lobster special. It's really quite a lot of food for the money especially in ocean beach. So off we went as in years past. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation. I make our reservation for this maybe two weeks in advance and call two days prior to check it. Emma was... More

At 5:55 PM I went to Maguires to make a reservation. The man with the glasses, 50ish, I think his name is Kevin, wrote down my name. I asked for a table of four for the outside. He informed me the wait was 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes. He took down my phone number. We proceeded to... More

The staff was friendly, the oysters were super fresh, and the sunset view. You can't beat it. For a big establishment it wasn't loud.

Ate there Friday night and were seated on the deck in between two families both with obnoxious spoiled children. In spite of the ambience they ruined our night . Perhaps if the food was better we would have overlooked this. My husband ordered mussels in a red curry sauce which turned out to be no sauce at all other than... More
