  • A bit rushed
    Kiffmeister
    Dined on 7/4/2014
    We're regulars at Magnolias and the experience is usually exceptional. However, maybe it was because it was Independence Day we felt the service was too rushed. We hadn't even finished our salads and the main course was being hustled in, and later our coffee order was forgotten until it was almost too late. But like I said, maybe it was because it seemed like the last sitting of the day and everyone was in a hurry to shut the place down and the restaurant was almost empty.

    The trout was excellent although adding a salt water topper like crab was a bit strange. The tastes are quite different. The service was great but be prepared to wait for items such as freshly prepared trout. The building and atmosphere was classic and warm because of the architecture and mill feel. It reminded me of the mill I once explored when I was a child. The only thing I would change is the lighting and seating. The lighting was quite modern and did not fit the theme, and the chairs looked like a cheap addition to such an expensive structure. Overall, I give it a four out of five stars.

    This was our first visit and we were impressed. Food was great; service prompt, friendly and helpful, and ambiance outstanding. A couple points off because we were not offered bread, and, for an upscale restaurant, I was surprised to be asked to hold on to my fork when the salad was removed.

    Signature Fried Green Tomatoes were good, but hadn't been blotted appropriately. Cobb salad was ho hum. Too much romaine, chop too large, local greens MIA. Dressing was nothing special. Local, fresh berry crisp was too syrupy, but Lemon sherbet was quite good. Berries would have been great without the crisp and added sugary syrup.

  • A Wonderful Find
    Bobg
    Dined on 6/21/2014
    We stopped by Magnoia's about 4 years ago on a whim. What a find! Since then we have had them cater Thanksgiving when we were remodeling; host my wife's law firm's Christmas Dinner; and had several me and my wife dinners. This last time was for our 39th. I had Magnolia's arrange to get a dozen roses. The menu was great and even personlaized for us. Hard to beat anywhere in the area.

    Salads were good. Crab imperial was so salty difficult to eat. Rhubarb pie was very good but difficult to find ice cream. Blueberry cheesecake was okay (watery - must have been frozen). Most Menu items were too complex - it would have been nice to have some simply grilled fish with sides.

    I was there at 12:30, so there were quite a number of families. The restaurant never felt overly-full. The food was replenished frequently and was delicious. There was a good array of breakfast and lunch items. The desserts were delicious. In my opinion, desserts are tricky because they can dry out, but that was not the case here. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating.

    The entire experience was wonderful. We split the crab tower (delicious!), then our entrées were the truffle burger and the fish tacos (both very tasty as well). Knowing it was my birthday, they had printed a special 'Happy Birthday' page for the menu they gave me which was a wonderful touch. We would go back in a heartbeat!

    We were seated promptly upon our arrival. Our server knew the menu and the specials well, and was both friendly and efficiently. There was a good variety in the menu offerings. The food presentation was very nice. Ingredients were fresh and the meals ample and delicious. The setting is very nice. The décor and building construction ( in an old mill) was interesting.Noise level was a little high, but not unusually so. I did appreciate that most of the diners dressed up a little and appreciated the occasion. I would definitely recommend to others and would return for a special occasion. I found the experience to be somewhat unique and it was nice not to just be in another chain establishment. I also appreciated that local wines were offered.

    Last week we joined another couple for dinner at Mgnolias at the mill. All four dinners were delicious. The service was spot on! Beautiful interior design coupled with prompt seating at exactly the time our reservation was made for 8:30 PM made it a wonderful experience. We will be back soon. Two big forks UP.

    Sat out on the porch that over looks the patio. Just beautiful. Spinach frittata cooked to perfection with fresh greens and feta. Fresh peaches are used in the Bellini's, a must try. The tomato and smoked gouda soup was delicious. Our server was knowledgeable, offered suggestions, and provided swift and efficient service. This was our second visit and will return often.

This was my birthday dinner choice. It's also great for bikers as it is at the end of a beautiful section of the W&OD trail

    I love introducing people to Magnolia's at the Mill and I try to make a point of going there whenever I'm in the neighborhood. The staff accommodates requests and I have always had excellent service. The food is good but fails to wow. We had the fried green tomatoes appetizer, which deserves its popularity. My girlfriend had the paella pot, but was not impressed. I had the shrimp and grits, which was okay. The ambience of the place is terrific. Eating here is never a bad choice.

    Wanting to try something new we drove a half hour to Magnolias. Tucked in the corner of the historic district, the building is a well preserved former flour mill. Hulking wood walls and rafters encompass diners in warmth and ambiance. Pleasantly diverse menu from burgers to full entres. Food was very good, service attentive.

    Magnolia's has become one of our favorite restaurants, and for good reasons. The service is good, the food is great and we like the ambiance. This time around I had the ribs and they were some of the best I've had in quite a while. My wife had the Paella, which is what I had the last time I was there. I didn't particularly care for their Paella. It just doesn't fit the mold of typical Spanish Paella. For one thing the rice was runny and the flavor was off - at least I thought. My wife tasted mine when I had it and liked it so she ordered it this time around.

    Been to Magnolias many many times. The mother's day food course was very disappointing. Shrimp cocktail came out swimming in water not on ice, salad was miniscule and almost no dressing. Tenderloin was good. Service was very very slow. Will NOT ever go back there for a special menu event. Eat at the the bar all the time and enjoy it immensely.
