“Nice Place to eat”
Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by on a chance, just out walking and ran across this Irish Pub. We were very happy with the service and the food. When we are back in Normal we we stop by again.

“Not worth the trip”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Our whole family ate here and all of us agreed that it was not worth the trip. The leek and potato soup was very good but it ended there. Two of us ordered the fish and chips. The fish and chips were incredibly greasy. So much so that after letting it sit for a minute the batter on the bottom of the fish had turned to goo. The fries were limp too. The same thing can be said for the onion rings. Just one big greasy mess. You would think that they would have figured out that a low oil temp equals a greasy meal. This is one meal all of us wished we would have avoided.

“Great Irish Pub/restaurant in the heart of downtown Normal”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Great selections of beers! Food is stick to your ribs stews and soups. Very tasted! Live the brown bread that comes with the potato soup too! Service is friendly and knowledgable. Atmosphere is fun without feeling like you're sitting at a college bar.

“Date Night St. Paddy's”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Tried Maggie Miley's in downtown Normal. Ordered the Fish N Chips along with a small Shepherds Pie.The cod was dipped in Guinness beer batter and of the course the fries. I topped the cod with a hint of lemon. Would order this again. The Shepherds Pie was full of rich flavors and the the vegetables were cooked to perfection. This was hands down one of the best 5 Shepherds Pie's I have had.
