Another fine meal with excellent service. Our server Cassedy was helpful but not overbearing. The lunch was lovely.

The waiter read the specials to my friend and I. I asked for the salad with fish that was one of their specials. What I got was NOT the special. The waiter said it was a misunderstanding in the kitchen. He did not offer to fix it. I did not receive any kind of credit. It was my friend's birthday so I didn't want to make a fuss. I was surprised that I was not given the right food nor a real apology but just an excuse of it was a misunderstanding. It was someone put in the wrong order or someone made the wrong order, not a misunderstanding. The kitchen cooks what is asked for. And management didn't come to apologize and offer any kind of anything. Disappointed. Expected more for a $6p lunch for 2 people.

My first visit was underwhelming when I first moved to Purcellville. My last visit things had drastically improved which led to my wife wanting to make a trip for her birthday. As a side note, I cannot recommend the Mr. Brown cocktail enough - I would love to have the recipe

Lots of great gluten free options. The food was so good and had so much flavor. I definitely recommend the Ideal Husband cocktail with the jalapeño vodka. My new favorite restaurant.

The Service and menu were top notch. I had the salmon which had a very bland flavor. What saved the dinner was the excellent assortment of vegetables that came with it, We appreciated the large serving sizes. The chocolate with raspberry topping dessert was “to die for”. Magnolias will be at the top of our list to take friends out to dinner.

Magnolia's is always good, but they did not do a sufficient job of distancing the tables.

The dining room was terribly dark at 11:30am. It was really uncomfortable and hard to enjoy brunch. We were shoved in a booth with a 6’5 adult, and two taller adults. The food was just mediocre and not the stunning food that we always received for the past 10 years or so. Very disappointing. Will be looking for a new relaxing, great food restaurant.

Poor quality and overpriced food with good service and a nice atmosphere.
You are paying for the nice environment only...because the chefs don’t know how to cook!

Attentive service in a cute mill setting. We went for brunch and the eggs were perfectly cooked for the benedict. Our waitress was very friendly and great about checking in to make sure we had everything we needed. Masks and distanced tables for safety. Definitely recommend!

We loved our first trip to Magnolias at the Mill and it will not be the last. Can't wait to go in and sit at the bar and watch some sports while sipping an IPA. Great ambience. Thanks!

You can never go wrong with Magnolia's! This was my 2nd timing dining inside since Covid and my friends and I were so pleased. The service, wine selection and incredible food, you can't go wrong! Highly recommend! Big thank you to Magnolia team and chef for making it a memorable evening!

While not the cheapest meal you'll eat, the options are wonderful. Seafood heavy, but options for everyone, decent drink menu and good ambience. When COVID ends, prepare for it to be lively once more!

We used to go there before the virus
It’s very nice special times
And they tried very well but when you do this kind of money the food has to be perfect
The special for the prime rib was tough and cooked the wrong way

The asparagus and mashed potatoes were cold!
The asparagus were horrible tough, yellow and they should not be on the plates!

Would love to come back, but it will not be a second streak streak the second time would be the end

Magnolia is a true hidden diamond in Purcellville, VA. While driving through the beautiful Virginia countryside we stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant in an old mill. The ambience is amazing, service is fabulous and the menu is creative, distinctive and delicious. Also a great wine list and amazing Port selections. I’m definitely adding it to my weekend excursion list for future visits. This is a true ‘must-try’ restaurant.

Great experience. Safe during Covid with few customers and lots of space. Brought friends with us this time and they were very impressed. Only negative is wines were way too pricey. We have traveled the world drinking wine

Visited this restaurant last year in July and the food quality was not the same. It was a disappointing visit for me since I had such a great experience on my first visit. Service was good and the place is nice.
