First time visit and enjoyed it. Not a large location but the 6 of us were seated fairly quick. They were a little busy and service was a little slow getting started but once she did, no problems. Drink orders were taken at the same time as the food. Drinks came out. Then those that had a salad or soup... More

We went here for seafood. My wife had the fried oysters and I had the High Country Shrimp. Both were very good. Maggie's is a local favorite and off the beaten path. Prices were great and service was excellent.

A restaurant that has NO redeeming values is horrible, But, one that had a couple very good things which were then followed by very bland is nothing short of disappointing. You feel like you were a victim of bait and switch. We had eaten here in the past at the old location and had a fairly decent meal, but the... More

Great Seafood in the mountains at affordable prices. The Seafood Chowder is hands down the best around.

This place has become a favorite. Try to get Scott as your server. Clam chowder is always thick and good. Add a little of their special hot sauce for a pleasant kick. Great menu. Huge crowds and long waits so arrive early. Skip the booths with back to back seating, they are horrible especially when some sits behind you. They... More

Wife had chicken as she is not a seafood fan and she said it was very good, they prepare most offerings either fried, broiled, or blackened, hush puppies very good as... More

I've eaten in many seafood restaurants all around the northeast where they are known for seafood, this is by far one of the best ever. I highly recommend there Oyster & Shrimp Combo and best of all their Seafood Chowder, Yum!
