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.

We absolutely loved going to Magleby's. We were seated right away. It was their Friday night Prime Rib and Seafood buffet, and it was sooo amazing! It was delicious and the servers were so attentive! We will for sure be back! We want to bring our family next time! Amazing food!

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.

Magleby's has been a favorite restaurant for many years. We realized we had not been there for a while and decided our anniversary would be a great opportunity (and my wife was dying for their Wonderful Halibut). It was everything we remembered and then some.

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!

Although I'm not a vegetarian, I try to eat very little meat. The buffet was meat-heavy, featuring several types of meat/fish dishes, but the only vegetables present were in two salads. And, one of the salads, as I remember, also had meat in it. No vegetable dishes were available. There were numerous deserts available, but since I've been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, I didn't eat but a small portion of one desert. All in all, I found it to be an unhealthy (and pricey) meal. I left hungry.

I was put off by the unfriendly demeanor of the server carving the beef. I asked if he had some that was well-done. He spoke not a word, did not smile or respond to me in any way but gave me some meat, which, by the way, was not well-done, and which I did not eat. He had a sullen, and kind of haughty countenance and manner - not very good for customer relations!

Won't be eating at Magleby's again!

We’re staying in the area for a couple weeks, and saw this place when we were driving by to the splash park, and than it was recommended from a friend. Nice place, but we weren’t aware that the liquor licence was being reviewed so we weren’t able to enjoy a nice bottle of wine with our meals. They informed us we could bring a bottle in at no cork fee but we were all ready there and settled In. We’d give the place another try, food was pretty good, not amazing but good enough to try again. Service was above par for sure, very welcoming.

I'm not sure what has happened. Magleby's has been great in the past. I haven't been there for over a year now and while the atmosphere is still great, the food is sub par. The strawberry lemonade needed more sweetening, the rolls did not come with butter and needed more flavor or salt at least. The entrees were huge and beautifully presented but did not taste very good. There were 7 of us, all with different entrees and they were uniformly poor. Desserts were still great. So disappointing.

The food was well presented and quite good with generous portions, but we ended up only getting one of the cheese rolls per person and would have enjoyed more of them. We wanted some of their famous chocolate cake for dessert, but were not hungry enough for the obscenely large slices that come with ice cream from the dessert menu. The server was willing to take one of their gift cakes and divide it 6 ways and serve it to us, so we all got the taste we were craving.
