Change the map link!
Good food at a reasonable price. The staff were quite accommodating, given BYOB status and that we also brought our own dessert! Thank you for a good birthday celebration for a party of four!
The one negative was the fault of Open-Table, rather than the restaurant; the OT reservation on iPhone worked well except that the map link was to some place completely unrelated, and about 10 miles from the restaurant.
Staff were helpful over the phone. Once we actually got to the correct location we had a very good dining experience.

I've like the food every time
I've like the food every time I've been there, altho my dining partner thought hers was bland this time. Service has always been excellant. The main room is too nosy. I prefer the small prch area.

I love the wide ranging menu from top shelf items to simple fresh salads. Everything is fresh and prepared in house-no factory food here! We had 2 kids with us, and the staff was great(so were the kids). We ordered brisket-no need for a knife, the steak sandwich was tender, I had Jess's favorite salad--and now it us mine too. Desserts are made in-house... Good coffee... Fantastic evening for our group. Looking forward to arm weather and cafe seating!

Great evening with friends
We had three couples and it was very relaxed, the food and service were excellent. We had good conversation in a quiet atmosphere. They gave us separate bills with no hassle.

Went for dinner on a week
Went for dinner on a week night with a friend whom I had not seen for quite a while so we had a lot of catching up to do. The waitress was attentive but not intrusive and we did not feel rushed. We had a lovely evening and the food (as always) was terrific.

Great Hidden Secret!
This place is awesome, I always thought they just had sandwiches and then one of our friends took us to dinner there. We love it and have been back many times since!

Dinner with frinds
Everything was wonderful!! One of my friends had the petite filet and grilled lobster tail, the meat was very tough for filet of beef. I would not recommend this choice. This will not stop us from returning to this fine restaurant :)

Filet not as tender as usual but still good
Overall a great experience

As BYOB go, this restaurant
As BYOB go, this restaurant is one of the best for dining consistency regarding service, food, and overall experience. My applauds to Cafe Magnolia!

We have eaten at Magnolia multiple times and we dine out regularly every month. The food and the service at Magnolia have always been excellent and the fact that it is BYOB increases the value of dining there.

Special get together
It was a special get together ~ we picked Magnolia Cafe because there was a big table of us and the back ground noise is there but did not interfere with hearing every one at the table ~ They also have a bring your own bottle and do not charge to have the bottle opened. The menu has something for everyone, and the helpings are plentiful. We will be going back in the future

Wonderful! Our waitress was
Wonderful! Our waitress was friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the menu. She described the specials and other food items in great detail. Most importantly, she honored our needs and did not rush us through our meal. The food was extraordinary. Your mushroom and brie soup was unique and incredibly tasty. The presentation of the Key West scallops was exceptional and the taste was even better. Absolutely delicious. High compliments to your chef. As an unexpected treat (because we were celebrating our birthdays), our limencello/gelato desserts were complimentary. Delightful experience. I will recommend Cafe Magnolia for quality, ambience and service. We decided that Cafe Magnolia will be our birthday celebration tradition. Thanks!

Great BYOB, love this place
Have eaten here many times, always good food and good service. Had the Pittsburgh steak salad with chicken, quite yummy. The deck is great for outdoor dining and it is a great place for lunch or dinner.

Have been going to Cafe Magnolia for several years and it just keeps getting better and better. The chef comes up with unique and wonderful specials. The food is flavorful and well presenred. Service is always good.

Excellent service. Good food. Worth eating there if you're choosing a place in the Mechanicsburg area. Don't expect brilliance, but if you want a nice meal, you'll get it there.

Good food great service
Magnolias recently changed their menu. So many items looked good we had a hard time narrowing down our choice. We we're all pleased with our food and the service was great. The only downfall was the noise level did get a bit loud.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have driven past this place and never really noticed it. We went with my parents over the weekend and were pleasantly surprised. Large selection for adventurous foodies and traditional diners. We all enjoyed are meals and thought them to be fresh and flavorful. I got the Pittsburgh Steak salad and the meat was melt in your mouth delicious.
It does get packed so make a reservation!

The Reviews Didn't Lie
We were traveling and looking for a place for dinner near our hotel, and found this place on our GPS. We read the reviews and it sounded too good to be true. It wasn't, it was that good. BYOB is always nice also.

Free Veteran's day meal
Excellent meal, service was great; Noelle was an excellent server. Reservation worked well. I appreciate them honoring the services. Thanks Magnolia Cafe for an outstanding meal, another reason why we like to go there!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of the nicest things was it was Veterans' Day, and Cafe Magnolia was offering a special menu with discounts to Veterans. Their meal may have even been free. It was packed! The food was exceptional, and the service attentive but not intrusive. It is a BYOB, but this is occasionally nice when you want to bring your favorite wine. I highly recommend for a nice, delicious dinner!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Over the years Cafe Magnolia has always been a go-to place for consistently good lunches - quick if you need to eat and run or leisurely if you want linger with an old friend.
