Good choice of menu items and fish. Well prepared. Loved that there was cocktail sauce on the table. Wonderful hush puppies. Offered half portions with one side instead of two. Reasonable prices. Service not wonderful but friendly and pretty fast. Good for seafood restaurant in the mountains.

My wife and I decided to dine out on the spur of the moment. With the parking lot full we and a very busy night in the restaurant we did not have any wait time and we were seated right away. To our pleasant surprise they had a 50% off on a great Cab. I selected the chef special, Halibut... More

DO NOT MISS the seafood chowder! Also, if you like collards, these are the best ever. Can get very busy, and service is not always the fastest. However, I've never regretted a meal here.

We arrived on Friday night and there was a big crowd so we opted to eat at the bar. I had roasted pepper soup which was very good and grilled trout which was also good. Service was excellent.

I have eaten here many times, and keep finding new things to love. Sunday brunch specials are usually amazing. The slaw is good. Sauces and soups are good. Portions are generous. The only disappointment was the Caesar salad dressing. Solid vinegar. I still pucker thinking about it. The lobster bisque is just thick enough, just rich enough. Yum!!!!

Having owned and operated a very large seafood restaurant in the past, I can truthfully say Maggie's Galley has very good food and service. The menu is expansive and everything we have eaten at this restaurant is delicious. Price is reasonable considering the cost of food in today's marketplace

Made a couple trips to this fine establishment. There's a reason for that. Chow is awesome. Seafood and salads highly recommended. We moved here from Maryland and I grew up in the Tidewater of Virginia...I know seafood. An unexpected treat. Fresh and well prepared. Another bonus is the wait staff. Each and every trip has been with a new server.... More
