Summer dining on Fire Island means seafood and sunsets. Both are done perfectly at Maguires. We spent our last weekend dinner on Fire Island at Maguires with friends. The 2 lobster special was a great last lobster of the summer!

I ordered the fish taco entree, which included two tacos with slaw and aioli. There was maybe 1 oz of fish for each of the two tacos, which totaled $18.50 not including a $4 Togo fee. Completely underwhelmed with the lack of food for the...cost. If you want great fish tacos for a great price visit Albatross down the street instead. I received 3 loaded tacos with tons of meat in each taco. I visited these two different restaurants within 24 hours of each other. I understand fire island/ocean beach is generally going to be more expensive, but that being said $24 for 2 baby fish tacos is nearly a very expensive side dish at that point. The left photo is the two taco “entree” I received from Maguire’s and the right is the three taco grouper entree from albatrossMore

We ate here based on popularity and location. We had a party of 3 adults and 5 kids and ate outside. The service was very good. Not much on the menu appealed to me, I ended up getting the Pineapple bowl which was shrimp and...scallops in a pineapple with way too much pineapple juice. Was just ok, but everything on the menu was very expensive. The best part was the view, watching the sunset. All in all, just ok, next time we’ll try a different place.More

This restaurant has probably the best view of Fire Island: on the beach, with beautiful sunset. But the menu is disappointing, as I see it, and prices are high. By the way, appetizers were good and abundants (clam chowder, long island steamers and hot wings).

I used to frequent Ocean beach establishments as my grandfather lived there. I had not gone back in years and it was time to go back to my old stomping grounds. Lunch here was fantastic! Everyone was so friendly. The atmosphere was so relaxed. I...really wanted to stay all day. The food was so good. French dip was a sure winner! I really wish I could eat there everyday! I can't wait to go back next season! :)More

My wife and I stopped here for Happy Hour with 2 for 1 drinks and 25% off appetizers. We ordered frozen margaritas, spinach dip and fried calamari. The appetizers were very good but the drinks were weak, we each had two and and my wife...commented that she didn't feel any sort of buzz. The view from the dock makes up for some but not all of the shortcomings. I would stick with one of the other restaurants on the water.More

Beautiful water view. Amazing rocket fuel drinks -best on the island. Clams casino and little necks were A+. Calamari was thick and chewy unfortunately. Prices are typical for the island. Awesome service. Great atmosphere and definitely will be back.

All tastes great here...but the view on the deck wins the day....and the sunset is the BEST! Terrific place to spend a nice night out eating, drinking, kicking back, and relaxing!

We 4 adults and 2 kids had a wonderful dinner here tonight. Even the corn on the cob was terrific. Lobsters and shrimp and scallop curry in pineapples were wonderful. We expected to pay for the view, but I have to say that $9.50 for...a kid’s hot dog is ridiculous. So, all told, it was a wonderful last night’s dinner here on Fire Island, and I’d go back, but it’s only a place for a special occasion for our family.zMore

We had a great dinner, the food was excellent, our server was very attentive and quickly moved us under the awning when it started to rain. Even with the rain showers it was a beautiful sunset.

Nothing compares to the sunsets at Maguires; added benefit, the food is delicious and fresh. The steamers are a great appetizer with a large portion. The Crispy Calamari is also a favorite. For the main meal the halibut is amazing. While known for Thursday night...1/2 price Lobster special, they also offer a list of specials each night in addition to a full menu. It’s a must if you visit the island.More
