This place used to be wonderful at its old location. Not sure when they moved (been a few years). We stopped in when in the area one early evening (4/5pm) ordered clam chowder, salads, steaks and kids meals. Wasn't impressed AT ALL with the steak. (Ribeye) clam chowder tasted from a can and was luke warm. Our salads were good.... More

My family was in town for the weekend for a family event. This restaurant was recommended by a local family friend. It was absolutely delicious! The service was excellent, too! I had the grilled tiger shrimp with steamed veggies and seafood chowder. It was all excellent! I especially loved the Seafood Chowder, I could make a meal out of that... More

I was not sure of this place as seafood in the mountains could not be as good as seafood near the coast. I was wrong. We had the oysters on the half shell and oysters rockefeller as an app. The raw oysters were cold fresh and very good. The Rockefeller was a bit of a disappointment. The cheese was just... More

Chairs lining the entrance offer a hint that it is common to wait for a table. Once seated however the food helps you forget that annoyance. Thumbs up for a seafood dip appetizer the chef was testing that night - we were given a complimentary serving. My partner ordered steak and described it as "very good." I had a cup... More

Unless you receive a recommendation to dine at Maggie's Galley, chances are you might ride by and decide to not stop and try the food. Big mistake!! Inside, one gets the feel they are at the beach and the food is just as good as any you find on the coast. It is all good and the service is also... More

My family visits Maggie's Galley often on Sunday after church. Upon being seated, the service begins promptly and is steady during the entire meal. The food is very tasty, and there is a wide selection of seafood and southern menu options, in a variety of sizes to meet your appetite. There are both a Dinner and Brunch menu, and we... 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.
