We had seen Maggie's Galley before on our trips to Waynesville. This time we stopped in and it was great. I had scallops and my wife had grouper. It was very fresh and the service was excellent. Hush puppies were great and the iceberg wedge salad was so good. Highly recommend.

My friends invited my husband and I for lunch to celebrate my 71st birthday. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The seafood is reasonable priced and sufficient size for a lunch meal. I tried the ribeye for something different. The flavor and taste was very good, however, I thought the very small cut of meat (thin) was disappointing. "When... More

I will tell you that the food is beyond amazing. The food is 5 stars. But, I have to give it a 3 because I believe their customer service could be a whole lot more. They don't take reservations, so when you have a party of 8-10 for dinner, it is difficult for everyone to be there at the exact... More

Stopped for lunch. We had been to their old location and remembered the seafood was great. This visit we had a mixture of sandwiches, salads and everything was great.

As I travel around the world, I often pick restaurants based on how many cars are in the parking lot or whether there are people waiting to get in...well, Maggie's is such the place. The lot was full, we had to wait for 20 minutes to be seated...but oh...the food was delicious!

I had not been to Maggie's in years and was just as happy as my previous visits. The new building is filled with awesome things to look at while you wait for your food. However, that is not long. The service was super fast and the staff are TERRIFIC! Large variety of seafood, GREAT soup, even better appetizers, wonderful. Will... More

Loved this place! Raw gulf oysters were plump and flavorful. They were also good steamed, as were the Stump Sound clams. My fresh sheepshead, grilled, with lump crabmeat on top, was excellent. My wife's fried clams and oysters were light and not greasy. My daughter raved about her steak, done medium rare. Sides and salads were equally good.The restaurant was... More

"What great seafood!" We hear that all of the time and we are thankful to our diners. Great seafood in the Great Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina just a few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Come join us at our new location just off of the Great Smoky Mountain Expressway (US Hwy 23) and see what everyone is talking about. From our full bar including beer and wine to appetizers, delicious entrees, and our house-made desserts, we are proud to serve you with our courteous wait staff in comfortable dining. We serve weekday lunch specials, and our full menu every evening and weekends with a special Sunday brunch.
