    We make a special effort to have lunch or dinner here whenever we are anywhere in the area. It has outstanding service accompanied by excellent food in charming surroundings. My steak salad was perfect but my other 3 lunch companions assured me their selections were, too. If you dine here you won't be disappointed.

    This local gem is always outstanding. The food is excellent, and the service is always impressive. I appreciate than they have local wines, and they even have signature cocktails made with spirits from the distillery across the street. My husband and I each got one of the specials-a little pricey but 100% worth it. Whatever it do please let them talk you into ordering dessert. Their pastry chef is really top notch. If it were a little cheaper we'd go all the time, but it is our go-to now for special occasions.

    Our waitress left us unattended for notable periods and appeared distant when she did show up (we were in a 3rd floor room for a party of 7). Took about an hour to get appetizers, then another 30 to get food where 2 steaks were undercooked and sent back causing further delay causing the manager's appearance who fixed the issue and apologized but no discount of any kind).

    My wife and I enjoyed our first trip to Magnolias this past Sunday, 10/16/14. Everything was very pleasant starting with the hostess. We had a little bit of a wait because came earlier than our reservation (to check things out). The atmosphere was great, we liked your impressive craft brew selections and the food was fantastic. We will certainly come back with friends.

    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.

    This place has is rustic and is inviting and comfortable. Outside and porch dining is bright and warm. The service is exceptional, well paced. The smoked gouda soup was amazing and the burger and home made fries were cooked to perfection. Definitely order the onion jam for your burger. Good selection of crafted cocktails. Bartender made a peach Bellini (not on menu) that was delicious. Everyone loved the chorizo hot sandwich.

    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.

    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.

    We love Magnolias. We come here every year on our anniversary as it is where our rehearsal dinner was. They always make it special for us. The food is great and there is a decent range of choices on the menu. I can't speak to the wine/alcohol selection but I'd assume it's very good.
