    Magnolia's never fails to satisfy. The fried green tomatoes are always great, the pizzas are excellent, the fish dishes are well done, ribs satisfy rib eaters, kale salad is great, bread delicious, and once I had a martini that made my head spin for fifteen minutes. And the desserts are sublime. You will not be disappointed with Magnolias, their wine list, or beer selection. I love the booths.

    we met friends at the restaurant - they came from Culpeper VA and we came from Westminster MD so it was really a midway point to meet. they'd been there a couple of years ago and suggested we try it. we had a lovely meal and a great time catching up with each other.

    I decided to take a friend of mine who was visiting from out of town to Magnolia's, and she wasn't disappointed. She really enjoyed her flank steak salad and the house made guacamole and chips. I opted for the prime rib special, which was mostly excellent (with the exception of a few areas that were a little tough), and a side salad (which was awesome). I love the ambience here and love taking our visitors here whenever we have someone in town. The waitress did an excellent job of making us feel like we had everything we needed throughout the visit. I'll definitely be back.

    When a colleague told me about a converted mill to a resturant I thought it would be a good place to check out. We arrived hours early to check out the local shoppes and coffee bar. When we arrived we were warmly greated and takes to the seating area of our choice. My granddad was a sawmill man so I loved the character of the mill. The food was amazing! My wood fire grilled steak was out of this work good and the garlic mashed potatoes were the best I've ever eaten. The atmosphere was casual and people came in jeans to suits. I wore jeans and felt very comfortable. The different levels of seating areas make it great for large parties to sit together. Conversation was easy because of the balance of music. Can't wait to go back!

    We had been to Magnolias several times in the past and decided to take a visiting relative to lunch there while on our way to take her to Dulles Airport. We are all originally from Mass. and were pleasantly surprised to learn that the New England Boiled Seafood bowl was available as a special of the day. Everyone agreed that it was just like being home!!! Well done. Service was very good also and being able to make a reservation on-line was a big help. We will definitely make this stop more often.

    This restaurant is a wonderful Gem located in Purcellville, Va. The food, service, and atmosphere are what makes this a must to try. This should be on anyone's list for that Special Occassion or just to meet up with friends. The restaurant is in an old building that used to be a mill but has been transformed into something wonderful. So the next time you want to try a restaurant that is a little different give this a nod.

    The web site was the resource that prompted us to visit. It's informative, easy to navigate and also offers the choice of reservations for two people. Checking in was swift and pleasant. The ambiance was comfortable and interesting. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent. The house salad was noteworthy. The appetizer was the Greek dip with pita chips which were perfectly pillowed. I had the prime rib special with garlic potatoes and asparagus while Pat had the local all natural filet mignon, aged cheddar whipped potatoes, wilted mustard 34 greens, bacon hollandaise. Both cuts were cooked perfectly, delicious, fork cut tender, and portion sizes were satisfying. We will definitely be back and I’m going to have company in tow.

    Stopped here after visiting the nearby Blumont Winery on a Sunday afternoon. It has a nice selection of VA wines. The dining room where we ate appeared to have maintained much of the original mill equipment and surroundings. Dining is casual and staff were all very friendly. Had a personal pizza topped with a scattering of gnocchi (pasta). Although I had my doubts as to the pairing, it was very tasty and not overly "heavy". My guests both had the lobster salad roll sandwich with fries and cole slaw (which was more of a salad). Fries were fresh cut and perfectly done. Food arrived hot. Ingredients were fresh. We'll go back.

    Magnolias catered my wife's and my wedding dinner, so we thought to go here for our one year wedding anniversary. As always, Magnolias is beautiful, quiet, and everyone is super nice. Food was delicious, and we are always excited to see what they have in store when the seasons change. Great place for a special occassion, or just dinner out.

    We have been to Magnolias several times. Our first experience was great, but the chef was a guest, and he did an excellent job with our wine-pairing dinner. After that, we found the food to be adequate but nothing to write home about. This visit was a complete disappointment. My crab-stuffed trout was overcooked and extremely salty. My wife and I both found our asparagus to be under-cooked and way too acidic. The potato-onion hash that came with my meal was bland to the point of being unappetizing. We the service is good, and the staff are pleasant. The sound level was formal normal conversation. Although the wine list appears to be adequate, we bring our own wine, so cannot comment. We won't be back until we hear of improvement.

    Strongly recommend making a reservation, especially on weekend nights. We arrived in time for our reservation, and had a short wait while our table was prepared. The food was good, with an inventive list of offerings and very large portions. The restaurant was very crowded and quite noisy. The open nature of the building adds to the clamor. Overall, it was an enjoyable meal. Be advised that parking in Purcellville is somewhat limited, and you may have to allow time to walk to the restaurant from several blocks away.

    The restaurant is in an Old Mill and while there is some level of charm, the seating felt to casual for what it could be. The service was freindly and warm. The waiter was dressed professionally and he was knowledgable. The food was well portioned and cooked to perfection. Just the restaurant seemed to be missing something in the decor and ambiance

    Magnolia's continues to be one of the best dining experiences in Loudoun. Mussels in spicy tomato broth provides a great beginning, one that can easily be shared among 2 or 3 diners. Burgers are juicy and full of flavor thanks to a deft hand by the grill man. Entrees, although a bit limited in range, have yet to disappoint. Service strikes just the right note of friendly casualness.

    We loved sitting outside on a gorgeous September afternoon to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The food was amazing, our server was excellent, and the outdoor seating was perfect. We were there at 2pm, so not all of the tables were taken. Thus, it was more relaxing and less intrusive on other peoples' dining (or ours). Loved it!

    My husband and I had dinner here to celebrate his birthday. It came highly recommended where we were staying (Historical Rosemont Manor), and we weren't disappointed. The place has a great story, and the decor is really amazing and authentic. There were so many enticing items on the menu that we ended up ordering a bunch of share plates to try as much as we could! Service was great and attentive - they even printed a menu with "Happy Birthday" on the top for my hubby! The whole experience was great except for one thing: there was a large party seated nearby that was quite loud, and it took a little bit away from the romantic dinner. I would happily recommend this restaurant for a nice dinner out :)

    My new husband and I ventured to Purcellville while on our honeymoon in Middleburg. We had a lovely table outside, but shaded. I want the Bianco pizza with tomato sauce instead of white sauce. No problem! And it was so yummy! My husband got the Big Easy burger. He is still talking about it, days later, saying that it was the best burger he's ever had. And to top it all off, our recessional song from our wedding came on while we were dining. It was all just so perfect!

    The 12 oz prime rib was cold, unseasoned, and undercooked. Mashed potatoes tasted artificial (from a box) and were cold. The 4 four inch long pieces of asparagus were cold. The pudding was cold. The horseradish was watered down with a cream sauce and had little flavor. No alcoholic drinks were ordered, not everyone in the party of four ordered desert and with a tip - $180. This was a big let down.
