    We were celebrating 3 birthdays and an anniversary. The service was excellent; drinks and food were served quickly and our server responded graciously and effectively to every request. I would've liked a different spot in the room as I was nearest the busy doorway, but all else was great. So good to have in the neighborhood.

    We visit once or twice a year and sample many items. Most we would order again; however, the ribs are a no go. We asked to have them removed from our check. The sauce is awful. Crab cake was ok and the burger top notch. Service was excellent. It's worth a return trip.

    Had a very nice lunch on the outside patio at Maggie's. Service was a little clumsy, but seemed to be the inexperience of the very nice young lady who was our server. Menu had many options, and was heavy on the Maryland Seafood side (big plus). To top it off, they stock Powers in their bar, so we enjoyed a very authentic Irish Coffee while continuing our private converstation.

    A little noisy but at least not boring. Main dining had no TV- good, shouldn't ever have one. Plenty of TV's in the bar. Everything ordered was very good. Correct temperature. Good portions. Attentive wait staff. Parking is tight on a busy night. Would go again. Enough said.

    We've often found that when a restaurant serves large portions, the food is lackluster in flavor. Not so with Maggie's. The food was delicious and our server was pleasant and attentive. A definite must-try establishment for anyone heading to Westminster.

    My husband and I tried Maggie's on a Friday night for the first time last week. We made reservations for the restaurant side but decided to dine in the bar. The crowd was energetic and happy! Clearly most were locals...it had sort of a kind of a "Cheers" vibe. The service was fast-paced but the server politely took the time to answer questions on several of the dishes. The food arrived hot and nicely plated. We will definitely return!!!

    Not a review per second but some general comments: 1. Parking is attrocious, not enough parking for the customer base, had to drive around building 2x before someone left and opened a space. 2.We were sat at a table by the kitchen, and also rught next to a large door that they allowed patrons to use as an alternate exit and also to go in and out to smoke. So, we were constantly subjected to cold air blowing right on us. My son didn't take off his coat until halfway thru dinner.3.The dining room we were sat in was packed and the noise level was loud to the point that it was hard to hear each other have a normal conversation at dinner.4.Our waitress was very good and very friendly, but she was being run ragged by the number of tables she had.

    It had been a while since my last visit - since I moved from the area. I decided to give it a try for a double birthday celebration. The food was OK - service was friendly, but slow. The glasses came and looked like they didn't get washed well - old lipstick and fingerprints still on the rims. I called ahead to tell them we were celebrating the birthday - and not that it is mandatory - but they didn't even comp one of the desserts for the birthday people. Very disappointing.

    Jess
    Dined on 2/15/2014
    The service was terrible. The waitress took her time addressing our table and we often had to ask more than once for things. My husband's meal was not as described in the menu. The 2 salads came out 20 minutes after the altogether bland cream of crab soups. The chicken Chesapeake was also terribly bland. The highlight of the meal was the vegetable medley. When we ordered dessert, it was delivered without its shell, in the hopes, I suppose, that we would not notice. It was promptly returned. For what they charge, one would expect a much better dining experience.

    The Cream of Crab soup was excellent - thick and meaty, just the way that I like it. The crag cake was impressive - rivals any in the area. The side bird's nest mix was puzzling to look at but delicious to eat. The service was excellent as well - although we were there early in the evening. It was starting to fill up when we left, so I'm not sure how things went after that.

    Went to Maggies as a group to celebrate a coworkers promotion. The reservation online went through without an issue. When calling to request to increase the number of people attending I was hung up on 2x. Called from cell phone and hung up on again. Not a great start. The spot is convenient to Westminster but parking and access to the front door can be a little tricky. Our server didn't know the specials and then could not remember them if asked again. No special sheets were availalbe. The food was okay. We did get recommendations from our server but bland is the word. Their drink specials were decent however and the signature drinks were tasty. Our guest of honor was given a check 3x . Desserts were hit or miss. Mine was delicious.

    The food was excellent and priced reasonably. We did not order wine or alcohol. Service was friendly and prompt.. I did comment to the staff that one of their two handicap parking spots was being hogged by a non-handicap vehicle. Not sure if anything was done about this. Being severely disabled, I had a big problem walking from our parking spot in the very rear to the front door. We exiting through the back, so it was not as bad. The only downside for the non-handicapped that we noticed was the lack of atmosphere, with bare water pipes along the ceiling, and lack of attention to décor. It was also rather noisy for being less than half full, so we would have to say this would prevent us from recommending to anyone other than foodies.

    Being a long time resident of Westminster, it had become easy to overlook Maggie's, with all of the growth to the area and many choices. I was looking for something different for V-Day and starting scanning Open Table and was surprised to see this well established business listed. I remembered some great meals from year's back and decided to make an on-line reservation and was very glad I did. I was our first experience dining in the larger dining area, as it had been years since or last meal there, long before the expanded seating areas. The meal was excellent and service was outstanding. My steak was cooked to perfection with a special glaze for the evening. I know we will be back soon and remember all of our special evenings together.

    Saturday night was packed, but our waiter was great, kept us apprised of what was happening with our meal. Good pacing of the courses considering how busy it was. Very good service, friendly and efficient (as always). A couple of our entrees were a little dry; the food is generally just perfect on past visits for lunch & dinner. But still great experience, kid friendly & nice wine selection for the food offered, enough space between tables even when all rooms are filled, accomodating of special requests. And our waiter got us out to see in time to see our play. Separate sports bar area option is very lively.
