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.

The food was very good, The local rainbow trout was really good and the crab legs, our server Parker was great, he really takes pride in his job. Good selection of beers and wine.

Although no longer in their quaint Log Cabin, Maggie's Galley retains the same great seafood. Been visiting them for over a dozen years and keep returning when in town

We've eaten at the old location several times but must say that we have mixed feelings about Maggie's Galley Oyster Bar. We both like their clam chowder and my husband thinks their oysters are great. I tried a different entrée each time and have always been disappointed.

We (two couples) shared an big platter of fresh oysters for an appetizer and then moved on to shrimp. fried oysters, baked fish, hushpuppies. Great service, fresh seafood and very reasonable prices.

This is the best seafood restaurant in Waynesville. We just don't have many such choices here. The service is always good. Sometimes they are extremely busy. Much more room in this new location and they have improved and expanded their menu. More choices of side dishes. The blackened preparation of the fish is tasty. My husband likes their trout. I'd...

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
