Restaurant Review

Maggie's, located on the property of the Lakewood Country Club, stands out of character with what you might expect as a venue that frequents the country club set. Maggie's is a popular spot spot for golfers and sports lovers during the day, and millenials during the later evening hours, who come to enjoy a sports bar, night club, a Tiki Bar, and arcade games to meet up with friends and family as a fun place to enjoy drinks and dinner.

There are several different options offering patrons a restaurant, sports bar, dance club, and arcade entertainment.

  • The inside bar sharing space with The Grand Venetian, banquet hall
  • Maggie's Underground located downstairs is a Sports Bar & Arcade where from any seat in the restaurant, you have a perfect view of the big games on their Two 100 inch BIG Screens and over 50 additional large screen TV's
  • During the warmer months patrons get to enjoy The Tiki Bar and Patio. The outdoor Tiki style bar and dining area features umbrella covered tables with live music during selected ights.

Maggie's Underground offers a variety of entertainment options. including Pong Night Thursdays, Country Line Dancing Fridays, Latin Themed Saturdays, and Karaoke Sundays! .

The quality of the food, considering their main attraction is having fun & drinks is barely a notch above banquet level food.. Their menu includes a limited variety of steaks, pastas, burgers sushi, and pizza items.

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
