I just came back from my second trip to Waynesville this year. Our first visit, we went driving around looking for a local place to eat. After driving by a steak place, a BBQ place, another seafood place and some mexican restaurants, we saw Maggie's Galley sitting off of the road. It looked like an OLD log cabin shack (looks that way... because that was what it is!) But, the parking lot, and the lot for the pharmacy next store was completely full. I told my wife that, with a building that looks like that, and it being as crowded as it was, it HAD to be good. We were not disappointed. Started off with a fried gator appetizer. This was the only thing (in 2 visits) I was disappointed in. It was tough and chewy, with several pieces absolutely inedible. After that, we had some seafood chowder. This was VERY good. My entree was a blackened NC trout. It was VERY good. My wife went for the fried trout, which I found ok. She liked my blackened trout better as well. We finished off the meal with a Godiva chocolate cheesecake, which was great.
Our second trip, last week, our orders were similar. I tried their bisque soup this time, which I liked very much (maybe a bit more than the chowder). I stuck with the blackened trout again, and my wife ordered a fried shrimp and catfish platter. Again, everything was very good.
This will continue to be a must stop dining location any time I'm in the Waynesville area.
