Good food, lovely environment, and fine service make this a winner.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Gem!This was my first visit and will not be my last. It had such charm with great updated southern style cuisine with friendly service!!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit in 6 weeks.Second visit in 6 weeks. Lovely location in an old mill. Shrimp and grits were great.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHit or miss lately.We've been dining here for the last several years and lately it's been a miss. This last time we ordered the fried calamari appetizer and it was not as tasty as past times. Almost a little rubbery with a slight fishy smell. Then we had the spare ribs which is usually a big hit. One order was perfect looking ribs while the other was completely covered in hunks of fat. So once we cut off the fat there wasn't much left. Goat cheese pizza was a little soggy and bland. After that we didn't want to order anything else.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE this placeThis place is always a great choice. Fresh, varied menu. Nice salads. Great house chardonnay.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were attending an eventWe were attending an event near Purcellville and this was the perfect choice for an early dinner.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Experience!We love Magnolias. Friends first took us there about 6 months ago. The atmosphere is great along with the service and food. We had an excellent anniversary dining experience!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA MUST VISITMy wife and I love old Mills; in fact we were married in one at Millwood, VA not too far from Magnolias. We were not disappointed; the Mill is fantastic and much care taken in highlighting the old charm of its component’s. It was very busy for a Thursday evening but the food was spectacular I had the Special, a local raised Pork Chop and my wife the Brick Oven baked Ahi Tuna Wellington both were absolutely delectable. Anna was our waitress and was very attentive, although due to the busyness of the restaurant the service could have been just a tad quicker. We had a wonderful experience.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Mill at Magnolia's isThe Mill at Magnolia's is a must see. The Mill side is dark and cozy perfect for a romantic meal while the porch was light and airy. The service was quick, efficient and courteous. The homemade hash was excellent and I highly recommend the grilled meatloaf. The portion sizes were so generous we didn't have enough room to sample desserts, but there were plenty of choices. Overall we had a great time and are planning on returning to try other menu items.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur meal was great, but nothingOur meal was great, but nothing of the 'oh-ah'realm. Service and food were very good, but not over the top.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMperfect spot after a beautifulperfect spot after a beautiful afternoon at sunset hills vineyard. can't wait to go back. food was excellent!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerThis was the first time we have visited Magnolias. Won't be our last. Won't be going too often, a bit expensive for us, but was well worth having another birthday.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointsThis was our 4th or 5th visit and every time we leave there we are happy! The food is phenomenal and the service level is great!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoy our annual brunchWe enjoy our annual brunch at Magnolia's every Easter Sunday. We live a good distance away from this establishment, otherwise we would visit more often. The Easter Brunch is always a pleasure.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch traditionThis was the 4th or 5th Easter Brunch we have had at Magnolia's at the Mill. It has become our Easter tradition to have Brunch there on Easter. The menu is almost the same every year but all the dishes served are wonderful and it is hard to leave not stuffed to the gills. Even our 2 very picky kids love the buffet and can always find things that they like there. We have visited there for a regular dinner also and the food and service are always top notch.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a very nice meal, withIt was a very nice meal, with fantastic service! The locally raised beef tasted delicious and the bacon was perfectly crispy on the smokehouse burger. My only complaint is that the wrong desert was brought out. I guess that just means we will have to come back again!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnolias was 2 for 2! MyMagnolias was 2 for 2! My husband and I raved about the first visit and were not disappointed upon our return.
Rarely do we enjoy every part of our meal when we choose to dine out. Fabulous!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was outstanding andDinner was outstanding and dessert was phenomenal. Service was fine, timed very well. Priced reasonably for the quality.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHistoric site and tasty foodWe've eaten at Magnolias several times and this was one of the best meals we've had there. The salmon was tasty and portions are sizeable (which, unfortunately, didn't leave room for any of the delicious sounding desserts). Will be back.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMParents' visit with college studentGreat restaurant for a special treat -- we will definitely return when we are in town. The food is excellent, atmosphere quietly cheerful, and the wait staff attentive. Filet mignon was particularly outstanding, cooked to perfection, served with fingerling potatoes and creamed spinach. The desserts were all hits -- the bread pudding received the most raves.The only downside was the ravioli, which, though delicious, was not hot, only slightly warm.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of 20 forWe were a group of 20 for lunch. The staff put us upstairs in a private room. It was perfect. We could take as much time as we wanted.And it was quiet.
We had one server, and she was the best I have ever had. Her timing was just right, circulating with the champagne, not rushing us to order, etc.
We ordered from the lunch menu and the food was delicious, according to those at my table who ordered different things: crab cake sandwich, cobb salad, taco salad, lobster pasta, etc.
Our server wanted to be sure everyone had taken a picture of the cake before she served it. Very thoughtful.
We brought our own cake, and that was served with ice cream.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Cajun Shrimp and ScallopsThe Cajun Shrimp and Scallops was phenomenal as was the salad we had. Our Server was very polite and attentative.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMworth the trip...every single timeLove, love, love Magnolias at the Mill and the sister restuarant, Tuscarora Mill. Living in Culpeper County means that it is a haul to get to either, but we often make the effort because they are both so worth it. There is an old mill in Fauquier county that could use some of their love..we would be their best customers!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstandingThe service was outstanding and all of us thought our meals were outstanding. We look forward to going back to Magnolia's soon.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThey had given away our tableThey had given away our table reservation but accommodated us soon as they could3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent evening.
