A friend told us about this place oin Waynesville while we were staying in Maggie Valley, about a 15 minute drive away. Glad he did! Great food - great selection! Great service. Large selection! Fresh! Reasonable! Not fancy - just a good, clean great food place, especially for seafood in the mountains! Off the beaten path but definitely worth finding.... More

I would give four stars as the crab cake sandwich and grouper sandwich were both good. However, the crab cake sandwich was a little over cooked. The downgrade was because if the price. $14 for the grouper sandwich and $11 for the crab cake sandwich, plus $3 up charge to substitute a side salad for a side. $15-$16 for lunch... More

This venue delivers seafood to your table so fresh and tasty you would swear you were eating at a seaside restaurant. Scallops and shrimp were first class and very well priced. Service was above expectations ( thanks Sydney ) and the bar had ample selection. You may have to line up a little while for a table, but worth the... More

Great, casual restaurant in Waynesville, NC. Loved the catfish and collards. Servers were friendly and decor attractive and clean. We live on Gulf Coast, but come to this seafood restaurant every time we are in the area.

This restraint was recommended by the Bed and Breakfast. The prices were reasonable and the food was great. We both ordered the small plate portions and there was plenty of food. There was a good selection and the food and service were far above average.

Maggie's Galley is a good choice for seafood in the Waynesville area. This is NOT your typical inland overly fried seafood restaurant where everything tastes... well... fried. We go on the weekends when the brunch menu is available and there are more unique food offerings like Mahi Rockefeller, alligator, or eggs Benedict with fried green tomatoes and oysters. Whether you... More

My husband and I enjoyed a comfortable, casual lunch and the food was very good. I chose a platter with fried catfish & large shrimp. My husband chose fried flounder and fried clams. Everything was very good and fresh. The only complaint for us was the waitress smelled like cigarettes when she came to the table.

This restaurant isn't in the usual list for the Waynesville area. It's not near the downtown more widely know restaurants. As a matter of fact, it's off a little traveled backstreet and I suspect that the locals guard it's location as a well kept secret. The dinner menu at Maggie's offers a wide variety of seafood and steaks. The choice... More

Came in from out of town, asked a local about steak, they said another place, their wife suggested Maggie's, we took the fish option. Pleasant, knowledgeable wait staff. Very creamy seafood chowder, tasty mashed butternut squash. Good value. Would come back.

"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.
