Description: "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.

My wife and I went with another couple after they gave us a recommendation. This is a new location for Maggie's Galley since the old location was lost due to road widening. They have gutted an existing building and the location while somewhat hidden is easy to get to.

My wife and I had the shrimp and grits offering as it was highly recommended by our friends. It consisted of two mounds of shrimp and lobster chunks each on a round bed of seasoned grits shaped like hockey pucks and fried or baked to retain the shape. There was a wonderful sauce over and under the offering. It was delicious.

They have daily specials and last night it included an offering of appetizers, entrees and wine at reduced prices (what do you know - a special with special prices). The wine price was very reasonable for a bottle.

Our friends had alligator (it was good) and a stuffed shrimp offering (also good). We have no complaints. The placed was reasonably busy and a mixed clientele.

Dinner was hot, served promptly and all food was very good. We will go back.

I really would like to have indicated 3.5 stars because the restaurant is better than average, but I'd hesitate to say "Very Good". We were happy with our choices and did not regret going. The service was swift and accurate. The Mountain Trout was "pretty good", along with the salad and sides. All in all an enjoyable meal but not one that I'd call memorable.

We're so happy that Maggie's Galley has reopened in a great new location...more space, a great bar area and still wonderful food! The chowder is still wonderful, and all the fish options we've tried are excellent. We have eaten with friends, just the two of us, and with a group of 26...great service on all occasions. We will visit Maggie's regularly and highly recommend it to visitors.
