The food was not the best. Beet/goat cheese salad had what appeared to be canned diced beets. Salmon was bland. Sorry, but I was used to better food at this restaurant.
Always enjoy going there. It is BYOB so bring a bottle of your favorite wine.
Very disappointing lunch. Terrible service and the place looked like it was under renovation.
We had a great time ! Service & food was wonderful & they didn’t rush us & let us sit & visit at our time after the bill was delivered !! Will Definitely go back with other friends and family 😊
Outstanding service - server very helpful. Needed to be finished by a certain time and achieved sooner.
Rather disappointed. Lump crab cakes were far from lump crab meat & didn’t even taste that greasy. On the other hand, the PB pie was amazing!
Beef tenderloin w/oyster mushrooms, brussel sprouts florets (can't see them... there were only 5) & 2 potato gratin pieces (can't see them either). On the right, pork tenderloin real brussel sprouts sweet mashed potatoes. Our server Sarah M. Was awesome as usual.
Had to track down watriss twice: one to order; once to pay; food took very long to arrive
Food that I had was very good but my friends that she got was not cooked thoroughly overall I would definitely recommend going to Magnolia
They are remodeling the restaurant. We were seated in the "blue" room. Nothing on the walls (paintings etc). We were pestered by gnats that kept flying around our food. I would suggest closing until remodeling is completed.
In the process of renovating. Brighter and noisier than usual. Looking forward to when renovations are complete. Otherwise very good.
Food and service were great!
Always a good meal at the Café, food is always great here. Waitstaff is top shelf and the BYOB style adds to the enjoyment of the visit.
Sat out on deck which was a great atmosphere! Service was awesome, and ability to BYOB is nice. Food was exceptional except my risotto was a little under but it was still very tasty.
Nice and intimate setting with an amazing vibe. Great service. Delicious food. BYOB. Good music. Couldn’t have asked for a better place for a date night.
Cafe magnolia is one of those very special places we love. The staff is great, food is wonderful fresh made, I feel like we are greeted by friends, they go out of their way to make sure everything is just how you want it. Never never had a bad experience there and would reccomend it for any occasion and for everyone
My boyfriend and I go here once a week. We always get Jess’s favorite salad with poppyseed dressing. Highly recommend!!! best salad we have ever had and keep coming back. We usually get appetizers which are really hit or miss. The calamari has been our favorite but had stopped getting it since the last few times it hasn’t be very good. But the salad is still worth going back. A huge salad for only $11. The the perfect size portion, most of the time i can never finish it. The deck is great in the summer time and it’s BYOB which is nice. The staff is always super nice and attentive except when they are busy it’s a little slow which is expected. Overall this is one of my favorite restaurants!!!
Excellent delicious food. Stop for dinner at Cafe Magnolia every time I come to Camp Hill.
Wonderful and unexpected food served with warmth and invitation.
Best fresh offerings Best owner Jackie D. Best server Sarah M. Feel like family. A must!
The burgers were awesome and the pecan pie did not disappoint, not the diabetic kind we prefer down south though 😉
We dined with our daughters this evening, celebrating our anniversary. The service and ambiance were lovely.. The salmon, scallops, stem and crab cakes were all cooked beautifully, but the accompanying risotto on each plate was terrible. Such a disappointment. We had the coconut chicken spring rolls as an appetizer... these were wonderful. The chicken wing appetizer should be passed up. It was lacking in flavor and overpriced for the serving.
Cafe magnolia is a quaint place filled with a wonderful atmosphere. The food is delicious the service is wonderful and prices very reasonable. Everything is fresh and they will accommodate for special eating concerns. A warm and friendly place suitable for all occasions . Has both indoor and outdoor seating. Cant say enough about how much we enjoy it there
I ordered scallops, which were very tender and well prepared with a nice crust. However, the sauce overpowered the flavor and was the same sauce my friend had with her steak and crab cake. It was also very salty. The rolls were delicious. The salad was meh. The food is not justified by the price. Too many people are squeezed in small spaces.
The food was good at Cafe Magnolias. I ordered a peach salad special with salmon. The salmon was tender and not overcooked. I enjoyed it. Our waitress was attentive to our needs. The chef came out personally to chat with us.
Delicious food. Everyone in my group raved about their food! I had the Chicken Poblano special, which was fantastic!
My husband and I had lunch at Cafe Magnolia twice in a 2 week period. I got the beet and avocado salad with shrimp and my husband had the Greek salad with shrimp. The food was delicious! The staff was friendly and the meals were prompt. This is a BYOB restaurant, which is nice. You can bring your own wine and there is no corkage fee. Try this restaurant if you are ever in this area! You won't be disappointed.
Cafe magnolia is out favorite place to meet. The food is great, the people so sweet and they go out of their way to help. Servers are always stopping back to see if you need or want anything. Is just a fantastic place and have and would reccomend to to anyone that wants a wonderful place to dine or neet
Two had the ribs and one had the scallops--Excellent
My family from out of town made a special trip here to celebrate my birthday. We enjoyed our experience but they didn’t do anything special for the occasion even tho it was noted it on the reservation and we ordered desserts. Otherwise we really enjoyed the food and service. The food portions were very nice and the server willingly boxed up what we couldn’t finish. Desserts were out of this world, it was truly the highlight of the meal. We will definitely return.
Consistent quality of food. Excellent service. Excellent children's menu.
Great specials... great server Sarah!
Perfect little BYOB in mechanicsburg, always great service great food
Ice been disappointed by the quality of the food at my last two visits. Soggy salad yesterday with smashed raspberries. Service, however, was quite good.
Our meals were outstanding. We simply savored and enjoyed every bite. We brought part of it home, and it was great warmed up the next day. Our server was attentive, polite, and really took care of us.
We have been here several times, and each meal was great.
Will definitely come back here.
Had patio seating. Nice string lighting, flower boxes had mostly dead , wilted flowers . Food was excellent, server was in training, but did a wonderful job! Great restaurant, great pricing, we come here often.
Hi Michelle! Thanks for the great feedback. It is so hard to keep those flower boxes alive when it gets to the temps that it did last week - we'll have to try harder next year :)
We have had many good meals and service t CM. our experience tonight was poor in both areas. Coconut chicken and basmati rice was awful. Very little coconut a a red flavored rice. Fish and chips are overlooked fishsticks and fries. Our server was slow, disinterested and not the usual friendly wait staff. I think she was new and overwhelmed with the serving. I am sorry, but we will not be back.
Awesome food at reasonable prices with a nice atmosphere.
BYOB! Dined on the patio. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and fun. But we were taken away by the food! I might have thought I was along the coast with the perfection of the scallops. And the steak and cake did not disappoint. We got risotto prepared two separate ways with our meals and both were outrageously delicious and paired excellently with the dishes. Can't wait to go back!!!
