Great Irish pub in uptown Normal. Truly Irish menu. Bangers n mash, boxty, Irish breakfast, Irish Rueben, Irish beef stew and my favorite shepards pie. On the campus of illinois state university so.has college fell to it. Always a soccer or hockey game on the many TV's. Great place to meet friends and has a great Irish meal.

Maggie's is my favorite place in Uptown Normal. I come here often when visiting my son who is attending ISU. Staff is very friendly, bartenders are attentive and food is good. Portions are very generous. Fun place for darts and drinks too!

Took our family visiting for the holidays the day after Christmas. The food was great as usual but one of favorite appetizers wasn't available nor was the side for one of the entrees ordered. I'm guessing the holiday messed with the deliveries.

We enjoyed great Irish food and a pub atmosphere. The food came out quick and hot. We were a little concerned when we were told upon seating we had a time limit, but the food came out fast and we took our time to enjoy it. We weren't rushed. Glad we made the trip back the next day for seating... More

Maggie's is my favorite bar and hangout in the heart of Normal. It's an Irish American bar. They always have good music playing. I went and watched the cubs play last night. Great bartenders too. Lots of room with two rooms, tables and a bar in each room. They have food too, which is a plus!

A locally owned American Irish bar and grill with history in the area. Just down the street from Illinois State University, Maggie Miley's provides great ambiance and service. Lots of old brick and dark wood seems to encourage a body to drink full-bodied beer. The menu has a combination of American fare and some old Irish favorites like Shepherds Pie,... More

It is a very relaxed bar and restaurant. We had the special which was Cajun chicken sandwich which was very good. And I had a turkey club with cranberry mayo awesome. It is a little loud, but the atmosphere is unique. The cost is average.

Stopped in for a Guinness and tried the Boxty Cheese Dip. Outstanding! Potato pancakes cut into wedges and served with a spicy cheddar cheese dip. I was a little skeptical but they are addictive!

Wasn't sure where to go with my college student grandchildren and this was a perfect choice. Choices for everyone and the prices were very affordable
