"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.

Had the High Country Shrimp on Grit Cake....was delicious. had several pieces of lobster in it too. Not the usual overly butter rich sauce but a nice lite cream instead. Would drive back just for that. Husband had fried catfish. Catfish wasn't fried crisp enough, red beans not soft enough, but... read more

This New Maggies Galley is excellant. If you ever went to the old Maggie's Galley in the Log House, forget it. The new location and service is great. The seafood was excellent, being from Florida have eaten clam strips all my life, that were always a frozen fried strip. Maggies Galley have fresh battered clam strips, the best I have... 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. Have an 11 year old that we can never decide whether to get her a kids meal or an adult portion, in a new place we typically go with adult.... More

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.

Was not impressed by our first visit to Maggie's a few months ago but we decided to give it another try. The guy waiting the tables was a million miles away and our service was terrible. We gave it another try last week, and let me say that the crab legs were as good as anywhere we have tried, and... More

If you are ever in the Waynesville, NC area and are looking for seafood, then Maggie's is the place to go. We went there while attending a conference @ Lake Junaluska. Located in an "out of the way" location, Maggie's popularity can be measured by the number of local cars around it. This is where the locals go for seafood... More

This little place, in the valley near Waynesville proper, has the most friendly, gracious, and helpful staff. The food is also very good! We had fried trout, catfish, and Hawaiian Shrimp. All were well prepared and presented with generous portions and sides. Definitely a spot to stop for good quality food at very reasonable prices. Plenty of choices for all... More
