God and service was great as always. Lovelty staff that are very helpful and attentive. Food was just perfection as always. Massive portions and unlike anything you get anywhere else in the city.

Was one large noisy table which were a little irritating, but not the fault of the venue. Great meal and will of course be back time and again.

Unfortunately didn’t enjoy our meal, and I think this was made obvious by our almost full plates. Not once asked by staff upon lifting plates/paying for the bill was everything ok. They clearly wanted to avoid the confrontation- Won’t be back

Booking process was very simple and quick. Food was absolutely wonderful. Having lived in the south in the USA, I have pretty high expectations, and Maggies didn’t disappoint. Delicious food. Get the ribs for sure. Brisket was very good. Reminded me of my Texan neighbours recipe. Great job guys.

Fantastic meal and service. It would be nice if restaurant wasn’t so cool in temperature but probably due to need for airflow with Covid-19 still a problem.

Went for dinner last night. My buffaloes burger was juicy and delicious, and Southern fried chicken, which my wife had, had taste beyond Aberdeen - very tasty upto the last bite. Overall, the servers were superb and the food excellent. Worth a visit. Experience for yourself - if you like the southern cajun dishes, you won't be disappointed.

Food was delicious and portions very generous. Only complaint we had was that the venue was freezing. Endured the cold throughout the meal but was glad to be leaving and putting on my coat.

We are regulars at Maggies and no matter how many times I've been, I still look forward to it daily from the moment I've booked the table. I can't do this place enough justice using only words, suffice to say that every mouthful is a delight with a plate that is consistently perfect. Maggies is the hidden gem of Aberdeen and if you haven't been yet, you're doing yourself a disservice. The chefs are outstanding and the table staff are so lovely that other restaurants should really take notes of how it's done.

Thanks so much for another amazing meal - we love you. Merry Christmas. x

The food was delicious, and the service excellent. Started late in the evening (18:30) didn't realise the restaurant closed at 19:00, was able to stay over closing time and thoroughly enjoy our meal without being rushed.

Tasty food, friendly staff and brilliant service overall. I’ll definitely be back and would highly recommend. Although all of the food was delicious, the appetiser: chicken and sausage gumbo, stood out as the best part of the meal we had on that night.

Lovely place, the food was excellent and the service very good. However it was a very wintery day and the restaurant was a bit cold, which took the edge of an otherwise excellent meal out.

Food is fantastic the service it great and the staff are friendly . Although it might appear pricey the portions are large and well worth the money. Only criticism I can think of it the seats could do with a little more padding
