Came back w fam (4 adults) because of good experience a month ago on a biz trip. Food was good. Service was very slow and our waitress never smiled once. It was busy, but still open tables so didn’t appear overly busy. We had 5:45 pm Sat reservation , had drinks and then ordered our food at 6:05/10 (had to flag the waitress to order). Had to ask at 700 when our food would come as we had 8 pm show to get to. Food arrived at 7:15. We agreed the food was not able to be enjoyed due to pace we had to eat it. (Fish and chips we awesome)

When you are in the area, it's a great place for a beer and a great place for a meal. They always have consistently great burgers, salads, chicken and bar fare.

This is a really good reliable place for a quick lunch. Salads are excellent, burgers are as well. It's always crowded around lunch which tells you something. Service is efficient and the atmosphere is bustling but not crazy loud. I go here for casual work lunches on a regular basis.

Maggie's is my favorite lunch spot in midtown. The food is always very fresh and very good. The waitresses are very friendly and the service is very good. You can get in and out in an hour or stay longer if you want to take your time. Great restaurant.

Incredabely noisy! The windows were opened directly over a construction site and the ambient air was musty, dusty and unpleasant.
Excellent mash potatoes and gravy, too bad the sausage seemed warmed over with no character.

This was second time we dined for lunch, this time with family. The food has been consistently great both times with good service and authentic Irish ambience. Menu has variety , daily specials , as well as pub comfort food. Salads are especially fresh and with variety. Would recommend highly for a midtown lunch, either quick or leisurely. Definitely we will return to dine here when we're back in NYC!

We were ushered upstairs which provided a completely different (and quiet) experience than the pub on the first floor. Menu was typical fare, but good value and it met our simple expectations for a quick snack before theater.

Disappointing lunch. Wasted calories. It did not help that three diners three tables away set their speaking volume to 110 dB. Upon exiting I was tempted to tell them that although we had never met, I felt like I had known them forever.

Maggie's Place is a great reasonably priced restaurant in midtown. The burgers are fantastic. The salads are really fresh. Service is attentive and friendly. This is a very popular place for lunch. Make a reservation for 12:00 - it gets very crowded as the afternoon goes on.

We have been looking for a venue that was close to the office and not too expensive and a great selection of food. I know, too much to ask but Maggie's certainly delivered. We had a reservation, they sat us immediately. We had a wonderful salad for lunch - and they got us out before our hour was up. Great spot. This is our go to place from now on.

This is my favorite restaurant in all of NYC. I try to go at least 2x/month. The food selection is wonderful - there daily specials divine. The staff is super friendly and helpful. I have not had one meal here that I did not like. I am trying to eat my way through their menu. This is truly one of the best pubs/restaurants I have been to. Everyone should come here at least once!!

Shepherd's Pie and the burger with blue cheese, hot sauce and crispy onions (angry burger I think) were DELICIOUS! Decently priced...it's the city so expect it to be a bit pricy. 48 including tax but not tip for the two meals plus two sodas. Great service, ambience and bread! Definitely glad we came and will come again someday!

Had Lunch on a Tuesday at 1pm, 3 people. Great place, service was spot on. Food was great, just keep in mind it's a bar menu, but with nice up scale options.
I'm Irish and for a Irish Pub in NYC it great.

The Lady wore Kilts which was nice.

4.5 out of 5 for a meal.

Maggies is conveniently located near Grand Central Station; the bangers & mash were a good size and taste-y. The Shepherd's pie was delicious but was super-heated which may explain why the bangers & mash were room temperature...(someone overcooked the shepherd's pie while cooking bangers too early).

Good experience. The food was fine and the ambiance was good. It has a very pub/bar feel, which was great. We ate a little earlier than I suspect most patrons arrive ~6:30pm, so the service was a little uneven. The staff was very nice, but I think we caught them between shifts or something because we had to wait a bit for drink refills, etc. Overall, I recommend. This would be a great place for groups of friends, etc.

One of the best restaurants in New York City! This place is a gem. I plan to eat everything on the menu here. Every meal that I have had here is beyond delicious ! The wait staff is friendly and their recommendations are spot on! The desserts are divine. My only suggestion to them would be to clean out their taps; the soda is always flat - so I just have the water. Otherwise, this is the place to go!

The first time I ate here it was during the week and I loved it. This time we went on a Friday night (7pm reservation) and I wasn't as impressed. They were out of the first two things my husband ordered. He finally chose calimari, but they were dry and over cooked. I had a chicken dish which was fine. A little noisier than during the week, but still fine for talking.
