Maguire’s Family & Friends Restaurant and Irish Pub opened its doors in Senoia, GA on St. Patrick’s Day, 2008. Owned by Frank & Wendy Maguire, our restaurant and Irish Pub is the realization of a dream to continue the family legacy passed down from our parents & grandparents.
In the 1960’s & 70’s Frank’s grandmother, Grace Fives, managed a restaurant on Long Island, New York, called the Jolly Fisherman. She then came to own and operate the North Shore Steak House in Greatneck, NY. After Grace’s passing, Frank’s father, Mike Fives, and his brother assumed ownership from their mother and managed the restaurant to carry on the family tradition.
Frank started working for his father at the steak house at a very young age, and worked his way up from washing dishes. Under the mentoring of his father, he learned every aspect of the restaurant industry. Frank went on to work in and manage four other restaurants in both Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.
Wendy Maguire, Frank’s wife, has worked in restaurants, on and off, since she was 14 years old. She began as a dish washer and ice cream scooper, and when she and Frank were dating, she was working the front of the house, while Frank was in the kitchen.
Our restaurant in Senoia is an opportunity to be a part of the Historic Senoia Project. This initiative is aimed at re-developing thriving, historic downtown business districts with the vision of restoring the lifestyle where neighbors are friends, shopkeepers provide a higher level of quality and service, and family values are important to everyone. As you walk down the brick lined steps into Maguire’s Senoia you will realize you are in one of the most unique family-oriented restaurants south of Atlanta.
When visiting Maguire’s, you’ll see Frank, Wendy and their 3 children working along side each other, in what is truly a family business. It is our mission to honor our heritage by always providing the great food, great fun and great service upon which our grandmother prided herself.
