Food, ambiance, and service were all exemplary! Bill did a wonderful job, from recommending a wine, to helping us choose dessert. I got the gaucho ribeye, and it was simply amazing! Magnolias is our favorite restaurant for an occasion and for a Tuesday.

This is my fourth visit to Magnolias on the Mill. Our small group opted for brunch; one had lunch. All of us enjoyed the first class meals. I don't like potatoes, but I ate every single one of the roasted potatoes on my plate.

I experienced outdoor. Food is excellent. The chocolate fudge cookie I had is excellent. Mussels are excellent. The crab cake isn’t that great but it is just fine.

Overall experience is good.

Great place to celebrate my 50th birthday! Cozy table and delicious food and drink from appetizer to dessert! Special touches like a printed menu with Happy Birthday and a candle with my dessert! Food was fresh and unique flavors. Everything memorable and perfect!

Everything was phenomenal from start to finish! From the host/server staff, to the drinks/food and ambiance/decor, I could not recommend this restaurant more highly as a dinner date spot. We ordered the Pineapple Mule, Hella Pain Yo Margarita, Bento Box appetizer, Salmon Oscar, & Prime Rib Special…all were outstanding! My wife and I will definitely be returning!

Nice ambience. Set in an historic mill, the dining area was spacious. Attentive waitstaff. Overall, the food was fun. Great French fries. I would not recommend the oyster poboy but everyone else in our group thought the food was fine.

We enjoyed our meal at Magnolias. We chose two of their daily specials: oysters on the half shell, and a grilled halibut that came with a delicious sauce. Both were excellent

Service was nothing to rave about. A little slow. I was mislead on my bread pudding desert, it was mixed with Oreo cookies, it’s was not warm and the ice cream was melted when I received it.

The restaurant itself is nice and rustic but I’ll probably stick to going to Tascorora Mill next time.

Definitely a place to try out. My issues maybe isolated.

Happy that we booked a res with Open Table on the way into Purcerville! We were seated by a knowledgeable and accommodating staff to a cozy table with great energy around us... patrons celebrating birthday and family time! I was impressed w/ the wine/alcohol menu from the start. The menu is diverse and more comfort food than you can imagine. We began with seared scallops app alongside a delish chutney. Creative Deviled eggs appetizer with microfield green tendrils atop offered 3 variations. My husband's entree was pizza and I ordered the beet salad 🥗 with shaved fennel. The homemade dressing was delicious however a bit much by my standards. I would order dressing on the side next time. Bread pudding was not served hot so they didn't charge us. I loved the blueberry compote with ice cream! Casamigas skinny margarita was a nice touch after a sweltering day of travel. We loved Alba, our waitress and will definitely return.
