Once again the main meal was great but sides poor. View and seating get nearly a zero. Needs better seating and some attempt at a view.

My husband and I both ordered fish for our entrees - both were absolutely perfectly prepared and very delicious! Our companion ordered a steak with sauteed mushrooms and a baked potato and thoroughly enjoyed everything. As a casino-property restaurant, it did not disappoint. There were 2 tables close by however with 1 couple at each. Towards the end of the meal, they began to interact for some reason and it became VERY loud and disturbing. Not the fault of the restaurant - just a comment that it can happen.

We enjoyed our meal immensely! We had a couple of cocktails before dinner and another at the Magnolia House so we are a little fuzzy on the details but believe it was a great meal. The service was very polished and cordial. We both had the sea bass and it must have been really good as there was nothing left on our plates.

We had the aged ribeye with lobster mashed potatoes and the steak was one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. My husband and shared two appetizers and actually shared the stesk. Had a nice bottle of wine. We were so full we could not even think about desert. We actually loved the steak so much we had it twice during the week we were there!!

LJ was our waiter and was great, despite also having to deal with a couple of drunk morons at a nearby table. I had the sea bass & risotto (they were out of the snapper, but this was an incredible dish) and my wife had the lamb chops. Everything was cooked perfectly. The crab & brie soup was great, too.

 (Kansas City)·Dined on December 27, 2017

We looked forward to dinner at Magnolia House during a short vacation to the Gulf and a stay at Harrahs. Unfortunately, the experience was less that we expected. The chef may be a James Beard award winner, but his sous chefs at this location have a long way to go. The space is lovely, like going into a southern mansion, quiet and well appointed. Our server, L.J. was personable and competent, but the food itself was not up to level expected at this price point. The menu is limited to about four entrees Coming from the midwest, we were hoping to get local, fresh seafood. When an order was placed for one that was listed on the menu, we were told that they were out of that because they hadn't been able to get a supply of the product for three days. (This was the Tuesday after Christmas Day on Monday). My companion then ordered the next fish item which was sea bass. It was good. I, however, ordered the scallops which were overcooked and rubbery. When I inquired about the green sauce on my plate, the waiter's only explanation was, "that's our Lake Pontchartrain sauce ." No further description of the ingredients. It was the tastiest part of the plate, which consisted only of four scallops and a smear of the green stuff. I also ordered the house salad which was extremely overdressed bag-type lettuce and not much else. This restaurant needs considerable refinement in the kitchen before it lives up to its billing.

Although there were very few people we were seated on the wall dividing the dining from the bar, was loud at times. Our server was just okay, not as attentive as usual for Magnolia House. Previously we have had excellent service. Upon opening the menu changed three or four times a year but now they are stuck on the same menu with very few changes. The Snapper was awesme but the pork chops a bit tough. The tuna was just okay, bland for my tastes. This was the first time that I have had a less than stellar experience.

The aged ribeye was average at best, no concentration of flavors as it should have been just another average ribeye for $68 . My wife requested gluten free and the server said that she could be accommodated. Well unfortunately there was gluten in several dishes and my wife became I'll that night and the next morning. Well because she had celiac disease we are very careful to assure gluten free. The service was excellent and I tipped accordingly. It is a shame that the food was Outback steakhouse level and service was exceptional.

Magnolia House by Kelly English is a great place for dinner - on any night or for any occasion. We celebrated a birthday and our waitress, Melissa, was very attentive. The food was prepared to everyone's liking and was served in a timely manner. No complaints - just lots of compliments for the chef and staff. Thanks, Magnolia House and Harrah's Gulf Coast!

Magnolia House is the true gem of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The food and the service are both impeccable. What you would expect from fine dining and then some. We had the Crab au Gratin with Crostinis for an appetizer. It was huge and so delicious. You won't be sorry you ordered it. For starters, we had the wedge salad, which had a modern twist with butter lettuce, olives and a Creole ranch dressing...divine, and the She Crab Soup, which was the best we had ever had. Chef must have a secret ingredient, because it was so smooth and decadent. For mains, we had she Sea Bass with a corn risotto and the dry aged prime bone in ribeye with lobster mashed potatoes. Wow! Just Wow! Incredible!!!!! The evening was only made better by our favorite waiter, Nick. He's a very personable guy and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Exactly what you want..extremely hard working, but makes time for any and all questions. Our assistant, Jacques, finished out the wonderful experience for us. A warm welcome, great smile and a helpful hand, Jacques was an awesome addition to the night. Thank you Magnolia House for another exquisite dinner.

Have eaten here before and love the place, but the food quality was not what I had last time. I guess it depends on who is cooking back in the kitchen. The fryer cook must have been new. Fried green tomatoes over fried, and the crab claws were not the same cheesy batter as last time. But the entrees!!!!! Oh my. Very, very good. Fresh. Tasty. Just fantastic - both the fish dishes we had. Took almost 15 minutes to get my check when we were done, but I can still taste those entrees in my mouth days later. Excellent.

The atmosphere was soothing and comfortable and where you could sit back and enjoy the meal. Our food was terrific and varied; it was delivered in a timely fashion and in an appetizing display. Portions were certainly large enough to more than satisfy most guest. We enjoyed the meal and the service was first rate.

The service was excellent. Salads were very fresh and tasted great. My husband ordered the sea bass and it was very good. I ordered the scallops and they were so salty that I should have sent them back to the kitchen. The hash brown/bacon was over cooked. Overall I would not recommend Magnolia House. Next trip to Biloxi, we will try a different restaurant.

Fried green tomatoes were just excellent. Both of our fish dishes were just absolutely delicious. This food is just really, really good.

The food was incredible, especially the cauliflower, bacon and chicken soup! Great by-the-glass wine list; excellent service. Only one negative -- the music was rock and roll mainly. Too loud and too fast-paced for a fine dining atmosphere. Some cool jazz would be better.

We at at this restaurant twice on our trip to Biloxi. Both meals were really good -- had the Sea Bass the first night, and the Beef Rib the second night. Had the spinach oyster salad both nights -- because it is that good. The service is good, very cordial, pleasant atmosphere. Not noisy at all - so good for a nice quite work , date, or personal evening. Strongly recommend it!! We've not been disappointed.
