    Food was very good. Big portions should have went for 1 main instead of the deal for 2

    The service and food were excellent. A negative point is the fact that, shortly after we were seated, someone whom I imagine to be one of the owners/managers turned up to the area we were in and announced that a very polite and slightly embarrassed person who was with him was going to screw some seats down on the tables right beside us and that it would be noisy for a bit. All the usual politeness conventions were ignored and everyone at my table found the manager curt and bullish in his approach. He could very easily have handled it in a much more courteous manner. The work was noisy but didn’t last too long and the person doing the work very politely told us it was finished and apologised for the inconvenience. The manager did nothing of the sort and continued to act as if we were there to put up and shut up. Otherwise the ladies serving us and the food itself were excellent.

    Absolutely definitely with my gluten free macaroni cheese, it is the first time (in 23 years), I have been given a replacement for an included side dish to the meal that wasn't gluten free. Without asking I received chips instead of garlic bread. Tilly our waitress was a delight. Highly recommend and will definitely be back

    Had Mother’s Day dinner on Sunday. We had a lovely time. First time trying this restaurant and would definitely return. Was busy when we arrived. We did go to try the lasagne which unfortunately was sold out however the owner more than made up for it. The food was delicious and the drinks reasonably priced.

    Good food staff very friendly but the length of time you have to wait to have your order taken and then the time to get your food even though it’s not that busy is disappointing

    This was our first visit to Maggie's Bar. I do not know why as it is very close to where we live - easily walkable. I had the chicken fajitas which were served in a 3 tiered stand. They were delicious. My husband had Penne Carbonara which is one of his favourite dishes and he has enjoyed it in many countries. His comment was that this was one of the best he has tasted. We will certainly be back.

    Went to Maggies with friends for a birthday,great food, great price, did struggle to get a light dessert as the citrus tart was off the menu and the cheesecake wasn’t ready, settled for the apple and berry pie which was nice.

    My husband and I had a beautiful breakfast each. The roasted tomatoes were divine.. I could have ate a whole plate of them. Service was great also. Value for money also. We have been here quite a few times for breakfast and will keep going back. The only thing annoying was a couple who were at the next table did nothing but moan about the food and drinks they had and were a bit rude about maggies in general. Love this place

    Had a great night quietly celebrating my wife's birthday. The food (both starters & mains) were very enjoyable, not to mention topping the night off with delightful cocktails. Thank you to both servers who were very friendly & attentive.

    Excellent service from each member of staff. Before our food arrived we were offered to move to a more secluded booth. Which we appreciated. In first view of the menu we were a little surprised at the cost of the starters however we were blown away by the starter portion size it was worth every penny. The pate that my partner had was excellent and the sticky chicken I had was delicious. The chicken had a nice crunch and the sauce wasn’t too spicy but just enough heat to add a nice nip. For the mains the Thai chicken was delicious the sauce was lovely and the chicken was succulent. The Cajun crepes are the closest I have had in Kilmarnock since the “treehouse” crepe days. Chicken was delicious and the sauce was outstanding. All in all a great meal and the White Russians we had were great too. A little creamy and I would serve them in a whisky style glass but that’s just a personal preference.
