My husband and I enjoyed great burgers and a super atmosphere. One of the owners came around to all the tables and talked with us---a really friendly touch! Good service, good location, a very good evening. We'll go back.

Small restaurant/bar with good burgers, entrée salads, Irish favorites like Shepherd's Pie and nice selection of beers. Intimate and fun atmosphere. Great for a family, couple or group of friends. Never disappoints.

Looking for a downtown Irish Style Pub? Magoos serves comfort food wth an Irish flair. Great food and stellar service at reasonable rates. My favorites are: chicken pot pie, chili, and the fish and chips. Breakfast lunch & dinner!

I suppose this could be a fun place to go for a quick beer, but the food is just awful. The fish and chips were obviously all frozen--fish sticks and Ore Ida fries right out of a bag--and burnt! The appetizer we had with avocado...More
