Cocktail Drinks (Ideal Husband and Grapefruit Basil) were amazing. Just as the tenderloin was. Our waitress in the window porch area at 5:30 on Saturday, 14 March was very personable and provided wonderful customer service.

We always enjoy dining at Magnolia's because the food is excellent, service is outstanding, and we always walk away satisfied. The menu is varied and the chef takes advantage of being in an area that is rich with local sources for everything from the meats to vegetables and even local wine, beer and spirits! #awesome

We celebrated our anniversary in style at Magnolia’s. Had a wonderful server, very impressed with her professionalism and recommendations. The wine was great, the food was delicious. Thank you Magnolia’s and especially Brooke for making our evening that much more memorable!

I was there to celebrate my 50th, which I indicated when I made the reservation. Food was delicious but the attention to detail was off. Took a while to order drinks. The waitress kept forgetting the bread - finally came after we finished our appetizer. The dinner was served and I thought there was a mix up (there wasn’t) but wasn’t sure what I was getting bc the deliver person just put the plate down without saying g anything. Then I thought I would at least get a candle in my dessert our a nicely decorated happy birthday but the deliver person again just put the dessert down. Oh well, I enjoyed myself and the food but it wasn’t the above and beyond experience I was hooping for

This is the third time my fiancé and I have been to Magnolia’s. We normally come to celebrate special occasions. We return because of the relaxed ambiance and outstanding food. This time we had oysters on the half shell and crab & artichoke fondue for our appetizers. From the first bite, we couldn’t get enough. My fiancé had the prime rib dinner special and I had the surf & turf. Once again, spectacular. Our server was very efficient & funny. We were never left wanting. Also, managed to leave room for dessert and highly recommended the brûlée. We will be back soon ☺️

Magnolia's is a local favorite and ever disappoints. Some of us tried the deviled eggs app, which was delicious- especially the bacon one. Two of us had the scallops which were huge and filling. It was a girlfriends dinner for my birthday- and was so good, I went back there the next night with my husband for another bday dinner! I got the salmon crab herbed potatoes entree and DH got the 16oz prime rib special. It was a perfect bday dinner/last date night before our baby girl arrives. Cannot recommend enough!

The mushroom and bacon pizza was a major disappointment. Under all the arugula I think I found maybe 10 slices of mushrooms and little bacon bits. If there was cheese, never saw or tasted it. The crust extended 3 inches from the edge with nothing on it so it was actually a small bit of food in the middle of the empty crust for $20! I was left with a plate full of uneaten crust and still looking for substance in the middle.

The food and service are consistently great. But there is no way their 2-person tables could be any smaller. Between the bread dishes and wine glasses, and the stuff in the table, we were completely jammed together when the food came.

We’ve been to Magnolias at the mill a handful of times and we’re never disappointed. This visit was no exception. We had a reservation but decided to sit at the bar because we arrived early. Even though everyone was busy we were attended to and we’ll taken care of as if we were at a table. Kudos to Eric for excellent service! We’ll be back!

The food experience was excellent, especially the Wagyu Beef special. A recommended bottle of wine by our waiter, Buena Vista Cabernet 2016 was outstanding. Phil, our Waiter, worked hard to please us. What disappointed was, we were seated at an extra side saloon instead in the beautiful main room. WE chose the restaurant for its ambiance. I wish we were told of our seating beforehand. WE got there at 4:45 so it was not because it was busy then. Overall very good.

I have always had good meals at Magnolias but was disappointed with everything but the calamari this time. The fried green tomatoes are nowhere near as good as they have been in the past. The tuna was overcooked and was not crazy about the stewie sauce it was in and the lamb steak was tough and not very tasty. Also the risotta had way too much thyme in it

We dine at Magnolias frequently. The food and ambience were great and the quality was as expected. Our waitress was very good but the assistant servers seemed either a bit off their game or just not well versed on serving in a nice restaurant. They served over our dinner guests instead of coming around to serve each individual. I’m not usually such a stickler but we were introducing new friends that have recently moved to the area and we all took note of the odd way we were served. Just saying... This isn’t a family style restaurant.

Our waitress was courteous and there when needed-just how we like it. The food came all together for the 4 of us and was hot and delicious. We did not think the key lime pie was up to snuff. It was a wonderful pleasant evening.
