It's not just about fish. This is the main family restaurant in Hazelwood. The snowbird and the native sit down to dine on the same tasty fare. Despite that name, which is a somewhat goofy play on words, despite the location, which is so deep into the Smokies that it offers a nice view of the Plott Balsam Range, this... More

We have frequented Maggie's Galley again and again, and it never disappoints, Our favorite lunch place for Fish & Chips. It is prepared perfectly, and comes with fries, hush puppies, and delicious coleslaw. Great seafood for reasonable prices, The homemade seafood chowder is d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

We came into Waynesville planning to eat at BBB&A, but after awaiting 30 mins for the 5:00 opening hour, we realized the restaurant was closed today due to a sous chef's funeral. At about this same time, the skies opened up for a downpour, and the two other choices on our "list" were both packed, as we were really in... More

Atmosphere and cleanliness was great. Food was good. Mussels were fairly dry but could be from out of season. Blackened tiger shrimp was very good! Service was decent. Seemed a little overwhelmed with tables but was friendly. Would recommend for good seafood in that area.

My family loves to eat here when we stay in Waynesville. I have probably eaten at Maggie's Galley at least 5 times, and I've enjoyed each thing I've ordered. The twice baked potatoes are my favorite!

We've been several times. My wife wanted the Oyster Stew. Our server was excellent and so was the food. I had the blackened catfish with the chowder as my side item. I gave my wife a taste and she's going to have the chowder the next time we go. We shared the side oysters. They were delicious and we'll try... More

We eat at Maggie's Galley every year in July. We wouldn't miss it. We followed them from their old restaurant to the new one on Sulphur Springs Rd. We take 10-12 people there each year and everyone enjoys their meal. The catfish, trout, oysters, and crab legs are great. The chowder is as good as any I've found in the... More

Really nice place for seafood. The blackened trout was very good, and we didn't have a single bad dish at the table. Service was excellent, very friendly.

"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. We serve weekday lunch specials, and our full menu every evening and weekends with a special Sunday brunch.
