    Good was fabulous! Our waitress seemed new and thought a porterhouse steak came from a pig. She left our table to chat with another table for a long time. Very green.

    Magnolias at the millResponded 6 days agoThank you for joining us for dinner! We're so glad you enjoyed. We currently have a Porterhouse Pork Chop on the menu from Baker's Farm. That would have been what the server was talking about. We hope to see you again soon!

    Our first visit to Magnolias and it was for their $35 Sunday Brunch. We had 2:15pm reservations and were seated immediately and the staff seemed friendly. I was looking forward to a classic full buffet brunch and they had a pretty good selection from breakfast to prime rib and fried chicken. I wanted breakfast and got bacon, sausage, potatoes, and when I got to the scrambled eggs I saw they were pretty dry looking so I turned over a big spoonful and it looked grey! I called over a staff member and showed it to him, he said it looked like it overheated in the steam tray but my gf said it looked like mold to her. I don't know what it was, but I sure didn't want to eat it and made me worry about the rest of the food. The staff member said he would get a fresh tray, but that never happened (I checked multiple times and when we left). I wanted to like this place but we won't be coming back. Too bad!

    I just want to shout out all the help. They are all excellent and will assure you have a pleasant visit. Special shout-out to Chad our server. He is excellent. Friendly, knows his business. Kept refills coming. I ordered a margarita (very good) ahead for dinner but a lemonade while we waited. Chad was on it and brought it exactly the way I asked. He was helpful with the menu and did a great job. The food was great and the only 2 minor things were as follows. Crab cakes- tasted very good but there was a spice in there which was new to us. Don’t mistake what I’m saying here. It was very good but not the very best. I’ll get it again just to find out what that spice was. Steak- cooked on hickory and delicious. I took it medium (my fault not the restaurant) and the taste was superb with the hickory coming through in every bite, until the center that was more rare than I’m used to. Again, my bad for not having that conversation with Chad. A little more done and it would have been perfect for me. Those are nit noids in the description of a very fine establishment. We had a great evening out. Thanks again to the team at Magnolia’s. We are planning a lunch there soon.

    We had four outstanding meals with exceptionally good service. Not one complaint or criticism. The shrimp and scallop dish as well as the veal scallopini and the smoked fettuccine chicken dish were exceptional in their presentation and taste. We will return even though it is a 35 minute drive from our house

    We meet frequently at Magnolias with friends. This is the first time that we were dissatisfied with the meal. The taste of the coconut shrimp, the French Onion soup, and the bison burgers were not of the same quality as in the past. We will give it one more chance.

    The staff readily accommodated a last minute reservation change. The staff was attentive. The room where we were seated was too cold as the a/c was still set for 90 plus degree temperatures. We mentioned this to the waitress and she said she would check on it but we did not perceive a change.

    Amazing experience at Magnolia at the Mill! Delicious food and superb service! We were celebrating our friend’s birthday and they went above and beyond to accommodate us - customized menu, flowers, free birthday dessert! We go to a lot of nice restaurants in DC and Baltimore - and this one was excellent! Can’t wait to come back!

    The petit filet was delicious and cooked exactly as I requested. The green beans and scalloped potatoes sides were a perfect accompaniment to the beef. My only suggestion would be adding a small side salad to this menu item.

    Made reservation for 4 and yet the hostess sat us for 2. Didn’t appreciate seating us in the middle of dining hall when there were booths. Appreciated that manager moved us to booth after we complained. Booth seats were ripped and didn’t get positive vibes of sitting on it because I was afraid it might scratch my dress. Expected better and more for restaurant of your caliber. Very disappointed. Fresh oysters weren’t as fresh and breads were not hot and they were hard.
