We recently tried Madigan's after I
returned from a week long business trip. It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy dinner with my wife and our little boy. We sat out on the deck overlooking a quiet spot on the occoquan. They had live music and great food. We really enjoyed the crab cake appetizer, the stuffed flounder (extremely good) and the chicken alfredo. We will definitely be going back for another relaxing evening on the deck.
One of the more popular dining
destinations in historic Occoquan is the locally owned Madigan's Waterfront. As its name suggests, the restaurant is located right on the Occoquan River and specializes in seafood dishes, as well as steaks, pasta and poultry. Madigan's also has plenty of live oysters year round, with the local Chesapeake variety being a big draw in the fall. The restaurant's Sunday brunch is very popular as is their outdoor deck, which provides a fun spot for a large bar with TVs, daily happy hours, live music, entertainment and karaoke. It you're boating down the Occoquan, public boat docking and slip rentals are available.
Madigan's is a great place from which
to boat. We love the restaurant and it's outdoor deck facing the river. Our boating club (Carefree Boat Club) is getting ready for the boating season. Ten of the twelve boats that we keep at Madigan's are already at the dock. Can't wait for the boating season to begin.
I have been to Madigans many times over
my 10years in the area and always enjoyed it. I came online to get the address because we were taking 4 friends who had never been. I read all the horrible reviews and was afraid I had made a mistake and was taking them someplace bad.. I made resivations and then showed up early so we sat in the bar & waited for our table. We were in no hurry and the hostess was very nice about things. Our service was about 85% good but not because she wasnt nice and willing. we grabbed the hostess once to get something for us and she was great and checked back on us a few times. The bread was good. The oysters rockafeller was good. Soup was great. Presitation of the entrees was lacking some but my swordfish was very good, very meaty and flaky & we all loved the garlic mashed! We had a very picky 15yr old in the party and she loved the chicken toritla soup and the alfrado (Ihave seen this girl take one bite of food and shove it away) she ate everything. We all took Choc Cake home to eat while playing cards and we all LOVED it! Very rich and moist. My friends cant wait to come back when the weather breaks and sit outside.. They loved it...
