“Ok comfort food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

A group of us went for lunch. Single server tried hard to get to everyone in the place. Luckily we went at the end of the lunch rush so we had her to ourselves and were served quickly. All the meals were good. Flakey fried chicken. Corned beef hash an eggs with some good adds to the hash like onions, potatoes and spices. The fish po boys could be better with a fish other than Talapia. Overall just a shade above average. Would definitely go back.

“Gone downhill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Maggie Brown used to be great, but since they switched chefs recently the food has been absolutely terrible. I nearly gagged at my most recent brunch there, and am sad to say I won't be going back, even though the atmosphere is still lovely. The new chef has no concept of flavor.

“Place was dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

Went for breakfast. Sat before the couple next to us but they ordered and were served first.

Table was sticky. The Tabasco sauce bottle was so caked with crusty gunk that it was gross. My mug of coffee which took 10 minutes to get had coffee grinds all over the outside of it. This place was just not at all clean.

“Comfort Food in New York”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2008

Traditional comfort food, but done perfectly, and in a cool space with a small bar. Maggie Brown (located in the Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn) gets crowded during dinner hours and was defintiely worth the wait; Thoughfully prepared almost as if you were on the journey with the chef to find that right combination for the perfect(For example.. you must try their deviled eggs); Honestly, from outside this place looks like a hole in the wall but once you enter.. it's really dressed up with old tin tile traditionally used for ceilings from the 1930s and interesting wallpaper (something from the 70's but very cool);
The wait staff was good but not friendly; (all it takes is one bad apple to almost ruin a good time and such a nice restaurant); The kitchen was pretty quick in getting our orders turned around;
We had a good time and look forward to returning in the near future;
