How long will this place stay open - we tried to eat there and after finally getting someone to take our order, it was wrong when it came out (took forever) and rather than make waves, we just ate what was there and told the server we weren't paying for what they never brought us (an entire meal for one of us) - had trouble with that also, but got out of there in one piece thankfully. I'd recommend staying away unless you just like being mistreated, treated rudely, and food that really isn't that good....
A group of 14 of us went to Mad Maggie's this past Saturday to see a band that we all know. The music was good, but we knew that going in.
We bought a round of drinks first. After writing down our entire order (1 coke, the rest beer) the server proceeded to tell us that they did not stock half of what we asked for; including pitchers for that night only.
We opted to have dinner there and really should not have. Our server could not keep our order straight. Two orders were switched and two were not brought out at all. The two that were switched were very similar and one of our guests took a bite out of the sandwich. The server thought it might be OK to just switch the plates around, after the bite.
After dinner the attention from the server definitely improved. We attributed that to the fact that the beer was $3.75 per bottle.
IF we go again it will be to listen to music, but definitely not to eat. We'll eat at Al's Cafe next door.
Mad Maggies is an awful place, lacking quality food, good customer attention and or an entertaining atmosphere. Everything from the pool tables to the staff is off kilter. Since opening day, they've had the most inexperienced bartenders, limited brands of beer, and a dull atmosphere. The bouncers are loud mouths and the staff is terrible. While we were there they picked up some guys next to us off the ground for the most trivial thing and literally threw them out physically. The whole thing could have been resolved in a quieter and more professional manner. It made us very uncomfortable and uneasy and my wife and I will never be back. It's obvious that they don't really care to promote a safe and family friendly fun bar eatery.
Ok. Maybe it was an off night. But I was pretty disappointed. Lets start with the positive. The atmosphere is kinda cool. Cool chairs, upstairs seems cool and they have bars on every floor. It was a light crowd for a Saturday night. Music was good, but FOOD WAS HORRIBLE. Please do not eat here. Its a bar, go get your groove on and some drinks and play pool. But if your looking for a nice dinner and some drinks try someplace else. Service was very poor too. The fries they gave us looked like shoestring fries from the high school cafe. Sorry Maggies! I have to tell the truth.
I frequent Mad Maggies every week or so. The food is fine. My boyfriend finds the Buffalo Chicken pizza to be wonderful. I am not overly impressed but it is decent. They seem to be working on the menu and food preparation. The wait staff needs a bit more training. The often forget to bring silverware or inform you of any specials. The bar staff does not always know what they have. They can be very good at refilling drinks though. The atmosphere is great. There is always something to do whether it be casual conversation, watching a multitude of shows on the huge TVs all around the restaurant, playing pool or listening to the live music. I would hope they start to diversify their music a bit or maybe even bring in a comedy act or two to attract a larger clientele.
My friends and I stopped in Mad Maggies hoping to find a nice place to celebrate a birthday. Instead we were confronted by a VERY rude bartender by the name of Joe. I ordered a wine and Joe promptly informed me that they normally only take credit cards on the weekends... what? We decided on one drink and then take our party elsewhere. Joe then accused us of trying to walk out on our tab (my one and only glass of wine which he wouldn't allow me to charge, which we DID pay cash for) Sad to say, it looks like a nice place but we definitely won't be back. Go to the Public House instead!
