Magnolias at the mill
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.
Top to bottom my experience at Magnolias has always been superb. The food, service, decor and atmosphere make this a very special restaurant.
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!
Friendly service and excellent food! Great spacing of tables.
Our server was outstanding!!
excellent from the drinks to the appetizer of deviled eggs (you must try) to the entree.
It was delightful! Our server was very kind - we had our Golden Retriever with us outside. The food was amazing. We will come back without the pup and stay longer - it was warm even in the shade.
Always a great time and great food.
Salmon Oscar was very good!
The Mill is a nice restaurant. Service was great we were able to sit outside with great social distancing. The food wasn’t outstanding we had fish and chips and a Reuben sandwich. It’s not a restaurant I say I would definitely go back to.
Always very good food and wonderful service. One of the best places to eat anywhere in the DC/VA/WV area.
Options for seating were available indoor and outdoor. Ambience inside is intimate and the decor is an interesting mix of industrial/Art Deco.
This was our first time trying out Magnolia’s and we enjoyed the experience. Service was quick and our server was on point. She was friendly without being intrusive and kept our drinks filled. The food was hot and delicious. I recommend the shrimp and grits and the fried green tomatoes. Overall the experience was definitely worth what we paid.
The website is misleading - this is a somewhat casual restaurant. Nice outdoor space and very friendly service, but the food quality was inconsistent. Generous pour on the wine, deviled egg appetizer was excellent as well as the salmon dish and vegetables. But the steak was subpar.
Had a very nice dinner out on their enclosed porch area. Food was delicious as always and it was nice to be back again!
The food was excellent. Cheerful and friendly staff. They kept social distance and sanitize tables and chairs perfectly. The patio was very confortable, nice and cool.
Was really disappointed at what I call the “build your own” menu. I got the scallops and pimento cheese grits,,, I got 2 scallops 2!!!!! For $18,,,, they were on the overcooked side and grits were under done. Hubby got the “ribeye” that came out so thin and well done it was also disappointing. That said the frozen mojito and fried green tomatoes were excellent as usual.
Food was delicious, dining outside was just average and understandably because of Covid, service could have been better, drinks were not delivered together( bar was backed up) I had to wait. When dinner was delivered without steak knives, had to get up get someone’s attention then wait for knives.
Food was incredible. Ambience was perfect. Emily, our waitress, was a delight. We will definitely make the trip to Purceville so that we can dine again!
Great service and food. Served outside, with social distancing and servers had face masks. Felt very confident everyone was safe. Very happy we could go out to Magnolias again. It’s been way too long.
Celebrating my husband’s birthday. The service was excellent, the food was very very good. My favorite, as always, are the fried green tomatoes. Please don’t ever take it off your menu. Sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the music selection. Always love coming there and I’ll always come back for family celebrations
It was a fantastic experience! The food was fantastic. We ordered appetizers, entrees and desserts. Every dish was a homerun! The night was capped by our server surprising my adult children (40+ year olds) with candles on top of their desserts. The food was delicious and the experience golden. We can’t wait to go back.
Gazpacho was amazing. Deviled eggs delicious and the salmon was melt in you mouth! Service was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable — we’ll ask for Elvia’s table when we come back.
We have been to the Magnolia quite a few times in the past. During our current visit, the service and food were excellent as has always been our experience at the restaurant. We both had the blackened shrimp cobb salad which was delicious.
The menu is always varied and fresh and atmosphere is perfect.
Excellent meal and wonderful service!!! Must try!!!
Always top notch food sourced locally. Never a bad meal.
This was our first time eating here. We sat in outside seating due to COVID-19, So I can’t really say what the noise level is on the inside. But the service and food on the outside was spectacular. Would definitely recommend eating here. Can’t wait to go back when I can sit indoors without a mask.
Very nice service - Covid conscience. The brisket special was extra delicious . We will return.
When looking up where to eat in Purcellville, Magnolia’s at the Mill seemed to be the clear favorite, and now we know why. It was DELICIOUS! The fried green tomato appetizer was out of this world, the Ideal Husband drink with the spicy vodka was incredible, and there was a Burrata salad on special that evening that was simply out of this world. (Major Kudos to the chef for those awesome encapsulated Balsamic Vinagrette balls of goodness!) Our waitress (I wish I could remember her name...) was SO nice! The shrimp and grits had great flavor (smoked tomato and cheddar grits... YES PLEASE!) and the reduction served with the Filet Mignon was such a great compliment to a perfectly cooked medium rare steak. Our experience was outstanding and if we ever find ourselves back in Purcellville, we’ll dine in again. Until then, we’ll recommend it to anyone we know! Great job!
Fabulous! Service was spectacular! Food delicious! It was our anniversary and every employee gave us their well wishes! We love Magnolia’s!!!
food and ambiente both perfectly on point
No dessert for the bday kinda weak when the bill was over $100
Love this place - food is fantastic and menu is flexible! Great place!
I've always loved Magnolia's! Every time I have been there the food, the staff, the ambiance were excellent! Highly recommend!
We had a wonderful experience at Magnolias! My husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here and the staff went above and beyond to make the evening special. Even in the midst of a pandemic, they exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to return!
We were visiting in the area and everyone recommended the Magnolia Mill. We were certainly not disappointed. One of the best steaks I have had in a long time. Got the opportunity to dine with the majority owners. Wonderful couple, wonderful service, excellent setting. The Mill is beautiful. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stop back.
Very nice restaurant. Food was very good and service was impeccable. We are old and think the menu was somewhat limited.
