The beef medallions were tough; waitress was inattentive. On whole the experience was not worth the cost of the meal.

We loved the Springville location. Set in a former art gallery, the interior is beautiful. Our server was incredible. She checked on us often, gave us a history of the location and was knowledgable about the food dishes. Prices are very reasonable considering the large portions we received. Will go back for sure!!!

Honestly, the food just wasn’t that good. It was all pretty bland and definitely not worth the cost. I liked the atmosphere but was fairly disappointed with the food

The meal was a great disappointment, especially considering the price. The steaks were so tough we could hardly cut them with a steak knife much less chew the meat. Although the place was nearly empty we were placed right next to a table of three men whose conversation we could not avoid listening to. We finally asked to be removed to a more remote table.
We were celebrating our anniversary , but were very disappointed about the Magleby experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Magleby's. I had prime rib and my wife had a rib-eye steak. Both were excellent and the asparagus that came with them was cooked to perfection. Many restaurants just throw in some vegetables almost as an afterthought. Not at Mageby's.

The service was excellent and the ambiance was lovely. It was quiet enough to talk easily and even hear clearly the wonderful piano music in the background. We ate at 5:00 p.m., which is on the early side, so it may have been noisier later in the evening, when it was busier.

Prime rib dinners for my husband and the other gentleman were excellent. My shrimp dinner was okay. A bit scare number of shrimp, and they were greasy. The other lady with us ordered chicken fried steak with gravy on the side. It came covered in gravy. She asked them to replace it with gravy on the side, which took close to 20 minutes. The rest of our party was almost finished eating. And her dinner was burned, tough and no taste to the gravy or breading on the meat, which was falling off because the meat was so over cooked. They did take her dinner off of their tab. But since we had taken the other couple there and it was their first time, it was very disappointing.

We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary at Magleby's. The staff was friendly and the service quick. I feel the salmon we had was the best I have tasted. We enjoyed what I felt was the best table in the restaurant. We could not have asked for a better meal in a better place. I would say that Magleby's would compare well with any other restaurant in the world.

Went for the Valentine's buffet. $155 for raw prime rib, and not much else, a waiter who forgot our refills, a tiny wobbly half table shoved up to the fountain on an aisle so that I had to squoosh and eat on the corner so the constant flow of people wouldnt bump me while eating. Never again.

The price was good, but the food was bland. The entree was the least flavorful part of the whole meal. In fact the bread and salad were more recallable than the meal’s taste itself.

I had reserved a table for 2 for the Wednesday buffet. Was glad I did as the restaurant filled up quickly at 11:30. Various food were very good and kept replenished. I did have to ask for a refill on my water. Servers were busy and it was taken care of promptly.

A pleasant hostess greeted us and showed us to our table. My wife asked if we could sit at a table closer to the water feature. She accommodated us per our request. Our server promptly introduced herself and brought us some delicious rolls. While we were perusing the menu, she explained the evening's specials. However, she did not include the prices with her description. Prices should be part of the description because the diner is trying to make a decision, part of which includes value. The diner should not have to ask the price. It is embarrassing.

My wife ordered the Chicken Italiano with chicken tortilla soup. I ordered the special flat iron steak with clam chowder. We thought the soup courses, while tasty, were too large for a first course. The chowder was nicely seasoned had too many potatoes and lacked enough clams.

My wife enjoyed the chicken portion of her entree' but it was served with way too much pasta. My flat iron steak was just the right portion. It was tender and cooked to a perfect medium rare. However, I was not enamored with the seasoning on it. It masked the beefy taste characteristic of a flat iron steak.

Rather than presenting a desert menu for us to consider, our server told us what was available that evening as she cleared our dishes. Again, there was no mention of prices for the desserts. This made us feel rushed. We selected a sampler that sounded good, which it was, for the most part. The creme brulee was excellent but the strawberries tasted stale.

I guess our biggest disappointment was the bill. While the price for the flat iron steak may have seemed reasonable to some, I thought it was high and would not have ordered it had I known the cost. In addition, we felt the dessert was overpriced and would not have ordered it had we know the price. In summary, while the meal and service were reasonably good, we felt it was over priced.

I really enjoyed the ambiance. I was there with my sisters & mom - first time I had been - they'd been before. I want to take my husband back. Just one thing that could have been better: I ordered the special pepper steak - it came a few minutes later than all the other meals. I think they should all come out together.

A+ from beginning to end. Our waiter Stormie (I think that was his name. He was from Nor California) was amazing. Hands down the best dirty Dr pepper I've ever had. While there were no other kids there at first our kids were enjoying themselves and the staff was great with them. All of our food was divine. Even though we were stuffed we got dessert. We tried cheesecake, creme burlee (it was huge), and pumpkin pie. They were all delicious and light (not heavy and thick making you more lethargic after a big meal). Seriously it was worth the drive from Eagle Mountain.

The restaurant was clean and sparkling. The staff were courteous and attentive. The food was delicious. I especially enjoyed the chocolate cake dessert deluxe. It was everything I had heard about it and more. The only drawback to our nice meal experience was the large table of people at the back of the room. They became louder and louder as the evening wore on, and were quite distracting. They finally quieted down as some of them left. We loved our dining experience and will definitely go back.

This is my favorite restaurant! The ambiance is marvelous, the food is delicious and the service is wonderful. It is extremely reasonably priced for frequent dining but the food is gourmet. I particularly love the all-you-can eat dinner buffet on the last Friday of the month. All the crab, prime rib, chicken dishes, salads, desserts, etc, etc, I can eat! Yes, sign me up! This restaurant also gives back to the community and the owner and family are really genuine and just fantastic people!
