Federal Hill: MaGerk’s

The bar scene in Federal Hill is a little crazy. There are so many different bars within a four block radius, how do you pick which one to watch the game at? If you’re an Ohio State fan or an Eagles fan, you’ll probably feel right at home at MaGerk’s. But if you’re just looking for some bar food and a beer, MaGerk’s is worth a visit.



One of my friends loves Onion Rings and orders them almost every chance she gets. This particular evening at MaGerk’s was no exception. The onion rings came with a side of chipotle sauce which was delicious.

My friends and I also shared an order of the Tater Tots. They came with a side of cheese and hot sauce. These were good, but nothing particular special.

The next thing we ordered were the Eagle Wings. Compared to other wings I’ve had in Federal Hill, these were possibly the worst. They came out dry and could use some more sauce. Next time I’m in MaGerk’s I will skip ordering the wings.

I heard that MaGerk’s was known for their cheesesteaks so my friends and I took advantage of two items on their menu. The first item we tried was the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak Eggrolls. These were awesome, we ordered them with medium heat and they were delicious. They weren’t too fried and stuffed with plenty of buffalo chicken, onions and cheese inside.

We also ordered the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak. This was very similar to the eggroll unsurprisingly. But it was also delicious, and massive. When you order the buffalo chicken cheesesteak, you are given the option to choose mild, medium or hot for spiciness which will ensure that your cheesteak is as spicy as you’d like it.

Next time I’m at MaGerk’s for an OSU game or just some great bar food, I will without a doubt be ordering a cheesesteak.
