Even during a snow storm, the place was packed which speaks towards to quality of Cafe Magnolia. No one wanted to miss out!! The staff was awesome and friendly and we (party of 6) never felt rushed or pushed out, especially when we were the last ones there. We will definitely be back again soon!

Made a reservation and table was ready right on time. Waitress was very good and came back often to check on us. Food was very good. Great place to meet friends and talk over dinner.

Went there for dinner while at a Global Awakening conference. We liked it so much, we went back for lunch the next day. Something for everyone, everything fresh and delicious. Yummy crab soup!

Salmon dinner was was good. The mixed salad greens were not as described. Nothing but iceberg lettuce with lots of end pieces. Had to leave most of it. Fried shrimp on the salad was good.

I've been there for a dinner for two and for large party dinners and it never disappoints. It's a gem. They also go out of their way to accomodate their guests.

BYOB and no charge for bottle opening like some other restaurants charge. This was a girls night out and we were easily able to have a conversation instead of being drowned out by restaurant music, etc. We were not rushed to clear out which was greatly appreciated. Food was delicious. Highly recommend and will surely return.

I've dined at Cafe Magnolia a number of times and the food has always been good. This time not so much. Six friends met there this past Saturday for dinner. Of the six, four people ordered the Mediterranean Chicken. First issue was cold risotto. As a replacement, the server brought something from the kitchen that looked more like cream of wheat. Next, some folks had uncooked chicken among the pieces. Those who complained about the chicken were comped half of the cost.
I'm sure some of the folks won't return. I may, but not for some time.

In comparison to price food quality was satisfactory. The food service was quick. The crab cakes were mush, vegetables were undercooked, and salad was lacking dressing. The best part about the meal was the dessert. We felt neglected by our server.

Our party was very cold. The management needs to turn up the heat during these cold temperatures. We will not go back.
