Wait staff is poorly trained. Food is worse. Used to be quite good, but has gone really down hill in the past year. Disappointing.

They've changed names over the years, but the current owner's/management have found a formula that works. TREMENDOUS FOOD, a great bar, amazing view of the black river, and unlike many restaurants in Watertown, they have the ability to accept groups. Popular night spot for the 20-somethings and our Fort Drum patrons.

I love to hate this place. It's hit or miss. I don't know if they have a big turn around in cooks and wait staff but it just ok. They have great beer if you can get one and the food is just ok. It like if you have had a few beers it's good but if you habit sucks.... More

We took family from out of town for appetizers and drinks. We put our orders in and it was well over an hr before we got our drinks. Our waitress was apologetic and looked like she was the only one providing service. We ordered nachos and wings. Disappointed that the nachos were not as big as compared to other places... More

With so many rivers in the NorthCountry you would think restaurants would take more advantage of the great views. Maggie's does it with a deck overlooking the rapids. The food is good and reasonably priced.

In town visiting my sister, we ordered take out. The food wasn't bad. We ordered a few of the burgers. All prepared as ordered. The Big Magg is a serious burger. Imagine a homemade Big Mac....enough said. Nachos and wing dip good as well.

Staying in Watertown for one night. We like to try non chain restaurants. This one was not the best experience. Food was just okay. My order was not correct and it took them until we were finished eating to bring me my correct vegetable. The waitress did check back with us, but said sorry the cook put cucumber on the... More

We take a ride here every year. It has never failed us. The food here is always good. Great selection of both food and beverages. The view of the river is always refreshing. Today was no different. Food was great, service was good, and I'm sure we will be back next year.

I am not one to complain normally but I felt like I just spent $40+ on a horrible dining experience. I've been to this establishment before, as I like to support local businesses. When we got there no one offered a booster seat for my toddler. After I found one myself it was horribly dirty and I had to wash... More
