Occoquan >Madigan's Waterfront
We used Madigan's for our rehearsal dinner venue. Our guests complimented us on the restaurant and food. My in-laws couldn't have enough nice things to say about Cathy as they worked with her in organizing the dinner. Everything ran smoothly on the night of the rehearsal dinner and you could tell that Cathy and the staff have a lot of experience and they knew how to handle everything!
A bunch of us went for a boat outing. We docked at the small pier in old town Occoquan and opted to have lunch at Madigan s which is right off of the water. We were seated in the outdoor patio, even though the place was crowded. I ordered the goat cheese Quessadilla. It was very good. Several of my compadres ordered the crab crake sandwich and said that it was fresh and tasty. Very convenient if you re going there by boat.
Our oldtimes reunion was a great success. Everyone loved the food & the setting. The food was delicious & the service was excellent. Thanks so much for all your help & your patience with us. Madigan’s earned an A+ in our opinion.
Enjoyed both breakfast and happy hour
at this location! I am surprised to read the lackluster reviews of this place because in the last three weeks I have enjoyed both happy hour and breakfast here.
First, the happy hour. The location is fabulous and when some co-workers and I heard of the wine special on Wednesday's we took advantage! For $10 off a bottle is a nice treat. Once we ordered our wine, we decided to go for for some food as well. I enjoyed the fish sandwich (HUGE!) and fries, another had the french dip, and another had the soup of the day with a salad. Everything was hot and fresh, no complaints! Service was also just fine.
Now for my breakfast visit. Went with my husband while we were perusing the town of Occoquan on a Sunday morning. I enjoyed the western omelet, with the potatoes and biscuit being some of the best I've had in awhile. He enjoyed the eggs Benedict. The one weak point of our meal was the OJ. It just didn't taste quite right. For the money, we feel the food, service, and setting were well worth it and would come back again before stopping at an IHOP.
Bottom line: Madigan's Waterfront has a variety of seating and meals to please almost every diner. Give it a try!
We had our company holiday party at
Madigans waterfront and it was top notch! Excellent food, service and enviorment. Our menu included the dirty chicken, vegatarian platter ( portabello mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese and pine nuts), grilled salmon and the prime rib. Dessert included a great pcs of cheese cake and excellent choc mousse.
Everyone had a great time and loved the food. The price was excellent for the event (better than any other price I found in the area). We had our event on a Friday night so the band was playing after 9:00 but we could hardly hear the music unless the door to the bar was open. The one down side is the bathroom is located in the bar area so you had to leave the restaurant area and walk through the smokey area to use the restroom. I didnt really consider that an inconvenience as the other part of the event was so good, no one seemed to care. I highly recommend Madigans for a nice dinner or for a company event. Its also a great place to do for a night of live music and dancing. All in one. I will say that its a much nicer and classier enviorment than Tims or Oasis if your looking for a nicer enviorment. If your looking to drink and eat crabs and throw down, you might want to go to Tims.
Madigan's Waterfront is a very pleasant
riverside restaurant in the quaint village of Occoquan, VA. Madigan's is an excellent stop during a visit to Occoquan and is definitely a dining destination itself
Seafood entrees are the mainstay and include Crabcakes, Sea Scallops au Gratin, Stuffed Shrimp, Stuffed Flounder and a featured fresh catch of the day. Steak, chicken, and pasta dishes are available, too. Snadwiches, burgers, and salads are also on the menu. (If you are not up for a full crabcake dinner, the crabcake sandwich is a fine alternative.)
Madigan's does crab very well and I can recommend both the crab cakes (nicely seasoned and full of crab meat rather than filler) and crab chowder.
The main dining room is decorated in a gazebo or atrium style with trellises, hanging plants and wood floring. Dining on the waterfront deck is most enjoyable in spring and summer, but is popular the year round. Sunday Brunch is served from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Live music featuring local and regional bands is scheduled in the bar and lounge area on Friday and Saturday nights.
It was a beautiful day but only March so I wasn't sure if their deck would be open yet, but they opened it for that day! We sat on the deck and had drinks. Then we ordered the shrimp & crab nachos. I had never tried that combination on nachos before but they were fabulous! and definitely enough to share, almost too big for 2 but we finished them! I had the crabcake sandwich, wonderful. You could see the lumps of crab & perfect seasoning! My friend had the Reuben and he loved it. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. The server told us that they have entertainment at the tiki bar on the weekends and are offering fun events for the summer...we will definitely be back to hang out with our friends and the food & prices were great too!
Food is very good, with a great appetizer menu. The atmosphere is very upscale..(and the prices reflect it)...Good place for a date or doing something nice, just plan to spend some money. Overall a nice resteraunt.
We stopped by Madigan's Saturday evening and sat outside at the Tiki Bar. My wife and I found a table and a waitress appeared right away. We told her that we had a couple more people coming to meet us. We ordered some beers and shrimp. She was very polite and friendly. Little did we know that she was to become "The Beer Fairy" aka "Niki". And don't let anyone tell you that fairy don't come around in the rain, because our The Beer Fairy never made us wait for our next round and it was pouring on her. We were there for four hours and all enjoyed the live music, shrimp, beer and atmosphere. Niki, you made our night. I'm not sure if you're a "The Beer Fairy" or a "Beer Angel", but your great in our book J Thanks
LOVE the chilled glasses and the ice cold beer.
