A wide selection of seafood and a full bar are available at Maggie's. We stopped there for dinner after receiving recommendations from local residents. We were not disappointed. I appreciated their selection of local micro brews as well. Give Maggie's a try.

The friendly manner of the wait and bar staff in this restaurant is very welcoming. They make you feel like family. The seafood is wonderful and the non-seafood choices are many. All the food is delicious. They are open seven days a week and do not take reservations so you may have to wait. The daily specials are great.

After you eat at this place you would think that the restaurant was on the coast. The seafood is amazing, very fresh. The staff is very friendly and attentive. We went on a Thursday, they have a special that day. The special was a low country boil with clams, mussels, shrimp, crab legs and Alaskan Crab legs with potato's and... More

When you are in the mood for fried seafood or oysters on the half shell, they are definitely worth seeking out. We went at around 5pm, long after the Sunday Buffet and it was pretty quiet. The food was fresh and the fried portions of fish were not greasy. There was a huge amount of food for very good prices.... More

I love the Sunday brunch. Arrive early or late, or prepare to wait. The shrimp and lobster over grits cake is amazing. The lobster bisque is really good. Fried food here is popular. Good slaw, and twice baked potatoes. I don't recommend the Greek salad though (way too sour).

We had seen Maggie's Galley before on our trips to Waynesville. This time we stopped in and it was great. I had scallops and my wife had grouper. It was very fresh and the service was excellent. Hush puppies were great and the iceberg wedge salad was so good. Highly recommend.

Since the relocation, the food has gone thru the roof in being great! think a new location helped. Always friendly service, tasty dishes and good prices.

My friends invited my husband and I for lunch to celebrate my 71st birthday. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. The seafood is reasonable priced and sufficient size for a lunch meal. I tried the ribeye for something different. The flavor and taste was very good, however, I thought the very small cut of meat (thin) was disappointing. "When... More

"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.
