Unfortunately, we found this place about 2 weeks before we moved to another area. Outstanding food and service. The good was cooked to perfection - hushpuppies were exactly as they should be. Go!!!

We accidently found Maggie's and will go there again with purpose. We were there on a Sunday night and it was very busy but we were quickly seated and efficiently served. We both had the rainbow trout but prepared differently. Oh, so yummy. Everything was great and was very generous portions. I really wanted desert but just could not eat... More

My husband and I have lived around here for 12 years and this is the first time we tried Maggie's. First of all, it's clean. Love that. Our server, Gina, could not have been nicer or more efficient. The grilled scallops are outstanding. Cooked to perfection. The fried clams were fabulous, and the pecan praline cheesecake was the best ever.... More

Maggie's Galley has been a Waynesville restaurant icon for many years, and when it closed last year to upgrade and relocate elsewhere it was like missing an old friend. It has a new location , but all the features that made it so popular remain unchanged: fresh seafood well-prepared, attentive and efficient service,attractive decor, and reasonable prices. On the outside... More

This popular spot often has a wait, but it usually goes fairly quickly. The seafood chowder is delicious. The waitress suggested we try some Crazy Jerry's Oyster, Clam, and Everything Sauce in the chowder. Yum! Spicy, but we love spicy. We bought a bottle to take home. The blackened scallops were cooked to perfection and the serving was very generous.... More

This restaurant is deceiving from outside. It is actually cute inside , and much larger than we thought. There is also a large inviting bar . The servers were very friendly and attentive. We each had black bean pumpkin soup - it was different , but delicious. We each had broiled flounder - which is pretty basic , I realize.... More

Family and friends just had the wife's 50th birthday celebration at Maggies. The cooperation and service from the staff was exceptional. I can say the food was above normal standards as all enjoy their choosing. Myself I praise the clam chowder, it was excellent. I had the opportunity to sample several different seafood entrees from many plates and all were... More

I had the almond shrimp. I was served 10 large shrimp that covered my plate. As skeptical ask was, I was pleasantly surprised by the great flavor. I also had Key Lime pie which was homemade and one of the best key lime pies I've had anywhere.

The service was good as always, however, the food is not what it use to be. We had the calamari & I could've gotten the same thing from a box in the freezer section @ the grocery store. Breaded shrimp, not the same. Not sure it was freshly breaded there?? No taste. Their signature chowder has changed, not for the... More

They tell me that the seafood is trucked in from the SC coast. This is a local hangout even if you're not local! Nice winelist & friendly service.
