Because when you see it, you'll eat it. All of it. Let me explain. The first thing you have to know about Maggie's Galley is they are serious about their Seafood. Something you also need to know is they use very rich ingredients. What does this mean? If you order a meal that comes with a side and you decide... More

This restaurant is very relaxed atmosphere, so if you looking for ambiance, you may be dissapointed, but if you are looking for quality seafood, tasty sides, and good service, then you should be quite content to dine here.

60s couple. We have only been here for lunch, but we usually turn it into a big lunch, with a dozen oysters each and perhaps the fish & chips, fish special or special sandwich like roast beef au jus. We always eat at the bar -- the bartender pours a nice drink, there's usually an interesting beer on tap, and... More

We love to eat here, when we're in the mountains. We live near the Coast in South Carolina and the seafood is better at Maggie's than at home. I love the fried jumbo shrimp and fried oysters. The seafood chowder is awesome. I can't wait for summer to get here, so we can go eat some good seafood in the... More

We have been to Maggie's several times recently and the food and service is consistently been good. This restaurant is generally crowded even though it is a fairly large seating area. But, it turns over quickly so the wait is not generally too long. We have started skipping the wait and sitting at the bar. They have a full bar... More

Have been here many times before but in the past few times, the twice baked potato has not been good. They are now hard as a rock on top, just can't eat them. These potatoes were one of the reasons I kept going back? But rest of food was good.

It's pretty simple. The service is great. I've never had anything I didn't like. The seafood chowder is a must. It is not just a seafood place although the seafood is good but there salads and sandwiches are great. This is where the locals eat.

Had dinner here and it was excellent. We eat here often being locals. Our waiter Casey was super nice and attentive to our table the whole meal. I had the peel and eat shrimp app as my meal and it was very good and fresh. Some of the best I've eaten. My boyfriend eats the crab cakes here and loves... 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.
