"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.

Really Great for the Mountains

When one travels to the mountains of western North Carolina, you don't expect to eat at a seafood restaurant and be impressed. Well, I was wrong, the food was very good. The service was prompt, and we didn't wait long for the food once our order was placed. The only complaint I would have is the... read more

We get to Maggie's maybe six times a year and are never disappointed. Last night was no exception. We usually try to sit at the bar which for some strange reason seems to have less noise. If you are up for it try the bar seating. All the seafood on the menu is excellent, which includes the soups. The chowder... More

We've been going to Maggie's Galley for years and have always enjoyed the food. They have recently relocated to Sulpher Springs Road. They old building tended to get unbearably hot and the new building has much improved air conditioning. The oysters on the half shell were fabulous. They're clam strips are the real thing, clams without the bellies, not chopped... More

We had the fried gator as an appetizer and it was so tender and delicious. Between the 4 of us, we had NC mountain trout, Mississippi catfish, oysters and Gulf... More

Today was our 2nd visit to Maggie's and we love it!!! Highly recommend it to anyone who likes seafood. The seafood chowder is fantastic! Today we tried the onion straws - OMG! To die for! Shrimp & grits, stuffed flounder, shrimp pasta Alfredo, fried tiger shrimp - all fantastic! Can't wait for our next visit.

Loved it! Food, atmosphere, and service was great. Sarah was a nice and attentive server. I shared a fried combo and crab legs with husband and we both had leftovers.

As a Florida resident, I wasn't expecting North Carolina to have such good seafood, but the food was delicious. The prices were reasonable and the staff was delightful.
