Great food and great service! A clean and real representation of an Irish pub with tons of beer on tap :)

We went on a Saturday night to hear a two man band. The pub was packed. The band was great and it seemed that everyone was having a great time. Service was very good. The waitresses were very quick and efficient, considering the number of customers. The bus boy, however, was busy on his phone most of the evening and... More

Magoo's is a great little place to go for a relaxing evening. Plenty of great beer choices on tap and some of the best burgers in Frederick. Jennifer is almost always there to welcome us, and her staff are professional and friendly. I feel like this is about as close to a Cheers type atmosphere as you'll get in downtown... More

I visited Magoo's for lunch. I asked for a lunch sandwich suggestion and order the cheese, apple, bacon sandwich. The combination sounds great. The apple overwhelmed the cheese and bacon.

I love going to Magoo's during Frederick's First Saturday celebrations especially if two out of 4 is playing! It's a relaxed casual atmosphere, the music is great, the services is awesome and the food was delicious. I ordered the grilled salmon and was not disappointed. My son loves the loaded crab fries - I think he licked the bowl! Always... More

We ate lunch here- very disappointed. My fish sandwich was 95% breading, and not real tasty. My wife's burger was just plain awful. Waiter and bar staff looked preoccupied- much better choices elsewhere in Frederick!

On our way home from the OBX we stayed overnight in Frederick to visit! The town is very pretty and quaint! We walked around for a bit looking at dinner options and chose Magoos! I have to say we had a wonderful dinner, we ordered the fish and chips and lamb stew with cold beer and a good Pinot Grigio!... More

If you want authentic Irish Pub food and a cold Guinness or Smithwicks, this the place to go! Great fish and Chips, nothing fancy, and more like a real Irish Pub than a typical American restaurant - not to mention that it is owned and operated by a past Frederick mayor - but good cold beer and great food. Been... More

Stopped in after attending an event at Carrol Creek for dinner last week, when we arrived there were only a few tables of people in there but quickly got busy. The server was at tentative and knowledgeable, I thought the menu had a little better selection than some of the other downtown area pubs we have eaten in. The crab... More
