We went to dinner with another couple and only had to wait approximately 30 minutes on a Saturday night. The food was fresh and cooked perfectly, it was also delicious. Our server was very knowledgable and friendly. We enjoyed our dinner and will be back

We just moved here from Atlanta. We took a wrong turn and just happened to discover Maggie's Galley in its new location. I had the high country shrimp. It is the best version of shrimp and grits I have ever had, lots of shrimp and lobster meat on top of a grit cake with a creamy leek sauce. My husband... More

Amazing dinner. I had almond shrimp with Jezebel sauce, fresh vegetables, and fish chowder. Everything I ordered was outstanding. My husband's shrimp scampi was good but he thought the garlic was a little undercooked. The portions were very generous, I had to take half my order home. We had an appetizer of calamari which was okay (no tentacles) but not... More

It was a nice dinner experience, we got what we expected and were pleasantly surprised. First of all, we are from Florida where seafood is abundant. One our rules of the road is: "Don't get Sushi in Oklahoma." It's a land-locked state. You get BBQ in Oklahoma. So I was a bit tense about what to expect being up in... More

Today was my first visit. I ordered clam chowder and a grilled grouper sandwich....both were very good.. The restaurant is easy to reach and there is plenty of parking. This is a super restaurant because it is clean, spacious and has a bar allowing customers to order a mixed drinks or to eat at the bar if necessary. I think... More
