This restaurant really takes the social distancing of customer tables seriously!! We were at least 12 feet from the next table on their outdoor garden patio. The food is always tasty and the service spot on. Magnolias is a perfect place to dine any time of year, but especially now during this pandemic.

Everything was delicious. However, lately when dining out we are missing the bread plates and/or personal plates to share the appetizer. Don't like to soil the tablecloth.

Literally nothing here on the menu that's awful. SUCH DELICIOUS FOOD! Highly recommend the filet, salmon...fried green tomatoes for an app and chocolate lava cake for dessert :) Pizzas are amazing too for an app, meal or take-home!

Been going there regularly for years. Their head bartender charged me twice that which was advertised on the menu for a beer. That being bad enough he wanted to argue that he could charge something higher than what was on the menu.

What has happened to Maggie’s?????

I went for lunch on a Sunday and really enjoyed my experience, food was great and the fact that they have added a plant based burger to the menu makes it seven more fun!

The food here is always wonderful! We had the filet and the salmon/crab dish. They have a small but diverse wine list, but we were disappointed by the wine-by-the-glass selection.

My fiancé has the filet (perfectly cooked and very tasty), but the reds they had were not holding up to the robustness of the steak. In fact, the steak overtook the wine and left it rather flat. Perhaps there was a bottle that would have been better, but we weren’t going to a get a bottle of red when my dish really needed a white. The waiter was only mildly familiar with how to suggest wine pairings, but he seemed to do his best.

Overall, I would highly recommend Magnolia’s! If you’re looking to pair your food with wine, I would push for someone with a little knowledge of that or at least ask for a taste of what you’re considering so that you feel you’re making the right decision.

A nice evening, with the COVID protections--we ate in the tent-covered parking lot, so hard to grade ambiance and noise level fairly. Food was delicious, especially the Tomato and Cantaloupe Gazpacho--perfect on a hot evening--as were the scallops. Glad to be able to get back to Magnolias but if you are in the parking lot, its not quite the same.

This was our first time dining at a restaurant since the COVID-19 started. Their outside dining area was set up under a canopy in a parking lot. Not the most scenic but it was ok. I planned to order the rack of lamb listed on their online menu but the actual menu did not offer it. Big disappointment. If restaurants are going to post menus online they should be current and accurate. The service was very good and the food we ordered was also good.

Very nice experience even during a pandemic. They were well prepared with staff all wearing masks, having tables spaced more than 6ft apart and took care to seat people as far away as possible. The food was just as good as we remembered and we were excited to have a "normal" experience!
