"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.

Good seafood

The crab cake sandwich was homemade with lots of crab though a little spicy; my husband had the flounder Reuben which he enjoyed. The best part was the seafood chowder which was delicious! Lots of locals here so you know it's good.

Honestly this place was relocated across town due to a new traffic pattern in Waynesville. There was a day when it was the only place to go for seafood. They built a nice,bigger place over on the Balsam side of town. Coming from Florida,and living on the water, I must say I know what good --fresh --cooked properly seafood of... More

Excellent choices on the menu. Great management by Soni! Tremendously improved from old location. Would say it is the best seafood option!

We live pretty close to Waynesville, and while I've often heard friends talk about Maggies, I've never actually been. I'm not a huge seafood fan, but I had the opportunity to eat there for a family members birthday, and I'll admit the food was good. I stuck with shrimp and crab legs, although my uncle did convince me to try... More

We were delightfully surprised to find a restaurant in the mountains that we can say is a GOOD seafood restaurant. It is not one the restaurants where your plate is piled high with fried seafood. It is a seafood restaurant chef that skillfully prepares seafood in distinguishable dishes that are delicious. The grits and seafood is the best!! The seafood... More

This casual restaurant has been a much-loved member of the community for years, first in the historic log cabin location, and now in a new location on Sulphur Springs. While the new location is not picturesque, the restaurant interior is nicely done, providing a casual atmosphere. Maggie's Galley has excellent seafood. For those not wanting a big meal, try the...

The mountains are not known for great seafood, but Maggie's Galley surpasses most seafood restaurants you would find on the coast. I like the fact I can get seafood grilled and it is not all fried. I had the grilled scallops and they were fantastic. I had a plateful (10-12) of large sea scallops that were grilled correctly. Scallops cooked... More

Depending on the level of restaurant you are seeking this is a restaurant where you get what you pay for. They are not 4 star or so delectable you will be dying to go back. But, every time we have been it was good food for the price. Cooked as ordered, decent enough service for what you pay for. Never... More

Went here on Saturday night. Very good service. Unfortunately, one order was not how we ordered it (stuffed shrimp with the sauce on the side...it came covered with sauce). We sent it back and when it came the second time the shrimp were frozen on the inside and scorched on the outside. It was inedible. The waitress was very apologetic... More
