    Table changed to new location while Holborn street closed for refurbishment. Food was delicious as always, staff were very friendly and well informed about menu and drinks. I think I personally prefer the smaller cosy holburn atmosphere but still has beautiful meal

    There was a mix up with our tables at the start which kind of put a wee dampener on the start of the evening

    Fantastic food, massive portions and very good value for money! Side salad is a good idea as not much veg on the plate otherwise.

    Took some colleagues who were visiting from overseas and they loved it. Was a Thursday night and the restaurant was buzzing, food absolutely amazing. Only problem every time I go to Maggies is not having enough stomach capacity to have everything on the menu.

    Food was good, the pulled brisket was sublime, the ribs were very tasty but over-charred on the outside. But I'd definitely recommend Maggie's

    What a great place to eat. Food plentiful and delicious. Service outstanding. Made to feel very welcome. Thanks Sarah in particular! Only criticism was size of the plates (small) for such great servings (large). Spoke to owner about this and he seems to agree. In summation, if you want something to eat in Aberdeen then this is a place you should try. Cheers Duncan

    Took a chance on this restaurant after reading reviews stating it was 2nd in Aberdeen. Not disappointed. Quirky looking place but served by tow seriously hard working waiting staff. The two ladies helped with our choice of food and it was all superb. Would recommend to anyone!

    Lovely welcome. Staff were amazing. Had Southern Fried Chicken with bourbon bbq sauce and it was the nicest, crispiest coating on the chicken. The on.y issue was an extremely loud table of 6 men who seemed to be having a shouting competition so couldn’t speak and couldn’t hear above them. Left restaurant earlier than planned because of it. Will definitely be back for more chicken.

    The team at Maggie's Grill are just brilliant! Lovely and friendly without being over-attentive. The food was just superb and because it's quite a small, intimate place the atmosphere was perfect. We'll definitely be going again.
