    I have been to Magnolia Cheese company multiple times because I love the food. The service however leaves me with a cringe everyone I leave. One time I went for lunch and they said the turkey was not ready yet, so I asked how long it would be, the waiter said 4 hours. It was already 1PM, who eats a turkey sandwich at 5. (Also no apologies) Last time I went my food service was great, but then I went the counter after to get cheese. I waited 20 min. People kept saying they would be help me in a second and then walked away. I ended up walking out. I just wish grey could get their service under control.

    This is one of those places that I would not have found but for the internet and a certain app that HELPs you find great places to eat. Between the reviews on that app and on Open Table I was worried my expectations might be too high. They were not, just way off base. See, this is a cheese shop. They sell wholesale and retail. I expected a wood laden wine bar with some meats and cheeses there to increase the appetite for wine. No, this is all about the cheese. Everyone here loves cheese and knows a lot about cheese and they have chosen a few delicious wine pairings. We had the soup, the salads, the tri-tip, the cuban, the cheesecake --- every item delicious and well crafted. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.

    It is apparent the owners take the time to train the staff on the menu. It's also great see the entire restaurant share a vision on food and customers service. Thank you

    The food is excellent. Brunch on Sundays is amazing, lunch or dinner with whole menu to chose from...AMAAAAAZZZING!! The have the quinoa salad I've ever had and those kale chips...keep em coming! Each unique and delicious meat & cheese planks or sandwiches are all so delicious. It's so hard for me to go there without having a hard time to choose what I'll order because there is nor one thing on their menu that isn't by far...outa this world! I can't tell you how awesome their cheesecake is. Each person that works there is very knowledgeable about each thing on the menu. If you are a little intimidated by the planks - no worries. They are more than happy to help you make a selection. Your palate will thank you!

    We had lunch at Magnolia Cheese Company recently. First visit. Very small and they weren't quite used to handling Open Table reservations, but we were seated after a shuffle of tables. The selection was great - both vegetarians and meat-lovers were able to find delicious choices. I had the Cuban sandwich, which was gooey, messy and great! We shared hummus as a starter, which was mild, but tasty. Desserts were excellent. I had the grilled angel food cake and another diner had the sampler. The bread pudding, which changes daily, was superb. Nice wine list and tasty iced tea. Great selection of cheeses to take home.

    My mother-in-law was in town & so excited to visit the Magnolia Cheese Company. So, I made sure to make a reservation to allow a short wait time, but upon arrival we were meet with quite the delay. We received curious looks from one of the wait staff & apparently a manager, at our question just before being ushered to our awaiting table. We asked for a high chair for my 10 month old son. The server said, 'Oh, we don't have any high chairs." I'm sure he saw the shocked look on my & my MIL's face, because he then asked another gentleman working by the door. "You don't have any high chairs do you?" and he said "No" So, extremely disappointed, we walked out and down the road to Lili's where we enjoyed an amazing lunch, with a highchair.

    We were very pleased with the service. The staff was friendly and informative. We ordered a cheese plate composed of several Texas cheeses which were all good and a salad. I had a breakfast brew beer from a local craft brewery which was also good. We went on a Tuesday night so there were not many diners there. We will certainly go back again.

    A very nice place if you like cheese. Artful presentations of local, USA and International cheese planks. Terrific made to order sandwiches on fresh bread. You can bring your own wine for a reasonable $15.00 corkage fee. They also have a nice wine list with realistic pricing. A nice touch is the desert trio, 3 dishes , one half portions, all were very good. This is quite the place for fine cheese with a bottle of wine. Thoughtful, knowledgeable servers who know their product.

    I was disappointed. Frittata was bland, cheese plate was okay but when adding a drizzle of honey or reduction of balsamic vinegar it is hard to get some on your bread since it is on a wood chopping board. Quinoa was bland also. When reading about it you assume the cheese, mango is in the quinoa but not so - it was served on the side. After eating there with friends someone said where is the nearest Whataburger. We were still hungry.
