We visited Maggie's several times on our stay - the first time at the suggestion of Caveman (a local snorkeling tour guide). We went for dinner and breakfast twice and were not disappointed either time by a long stretch.
The breakfast is a healthy portion - we always had scrambled eggs with jalapeños and tomatoes served with beans and fry jack (deep fried flour tortilla) with plenty of Maggie Sharp's. This comes with a free coffee or tea but we switched for bottled water one day and they were happy to oblige.
Dinner menu isn't too big and has some amazing dishes on it. We had curry lobster and coconut lobster one night which comes with a choice of 2 sides. The second night we had the combo seafood special which is a mix of crab, lobster, shrimp and seafood in a curry or coconut sauce. Indulgent and expensive at BZ$65 but worth it. Conch fritters are some of the best we've had.
They are a small place and get busy early so either book a table or get there around 6 to ensure a place. You might have to wait a bit longer for the food but it's all made fresh so you can't complain.
All the staff are lovely and if you have time, sit and chat a while they have some great stories about the island.
View of the lagoon side of the island is lovely too.

Maggie is the best place if you want to eat the best grilled lobster of your life and in a very good price! You have to wait a bit so be patient but believe it's worth it!!!!! Also, we tried the grilled barracuda and it was nice too. Between the coconut lobster and the grilled, I recommend the grilled with the garlic sauce and of course don't forget to order your cocktail - rum punch!!!

We had the curried lobster and the coconut lobster. Both were very tasty, the curry sauce was a bit like that in coronation chicken. It's in quite a secluded spot, and has plenty of shade from the midday sun. Service was good and prices reasonable.

First time to Maggie's We walked up late on a Sunday morning and it was empty which made me skeptical but we decided to stay and glad we did. Food was fresh cooked and good. FYI They don't take credit cards.
