I asked the Manager/owner Jim Betts for Viognier 2 seasons ago and it appeared on menu and I have been sampling Jim's choices every since with well prepared seafood. There is nothing like a three pound lobster and a crisp white wine. Some of the other dishes included a knock out Paella, super sweet potato fries and well season chops.... More

Only had lunch there but went on a recommendation and it did not disappoint. Service and atmosphere were very good. Large choice of hamburgers and the two different one's were thoroughly enjoyed. If I had more time I definitely would try dinner here.

Can't beat the location. Outdoor tables on the Great South Bay. Food was good and a wide selection is offered for those who don't like seafood. I had the Tuna and is was great. The place offers happy hours and indoor outdoor seating. It's been around for decades and I've been going since the 80's. Cool spot.

VERY EXPENSIVE! Outside of this if you don't mind the pretty penny you'll spend eating here, the view of the sunset at dinner is amazing, right over the bay. Seafood is all really good but I was a bit disappointed in the little necks (they were a bit smaller than I would have expected at this nice of a restaurant).... More

I came to Maguire's twice on both Friday and Saturday night. The service at the bar was a little slow at first, but in the end the bartenders are very nice and hard working. the place doesnt get very packed until after midnight around 1AM. But the music is great, they play lots of oldies and fun songs to sing... More

My husband and I came here for a quick bite to eat, and were thoroughly disappointed. We shared the calamari appetizer, and it seriously had no taste to it. I had to douse the plate in lemon juice & sauce just to get some sort of flavor out of the food. We were not thrilled and will not be back... More

7 people had a nice meal on the balcony. Service was friendly and quick, food was good (had salads, burgers, and the special). Prices are no higher than other Fire Island restaurants. Atmosphere is easy going.

Nothing special, but nothing in Ocean Beach is. You have to gird yourself throughout the town for spotty service, lukewarm food, and lousy pours. Their best dish tasted like something out of Ruby Tuesday's.
