Our meal was outstanding. The menu was very impressive and the chef even obliged to blacken the fresh halibut I ordered. The service was great and the ambiance very nice. The waiter was very wonderful as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

The mussel curry, seafood soup, halibut and creme brule excellent. The seafood sharing board excellent except for too many wontons. The prime rib and Yorkshire pudding was not great. Service was very good. Server forgot cutlet several times an we did not get served any water.

The food and service were excellent. Our server, Meghan, was very friendly and helpful. We had some laughs with here. One of the specials was Halibut- it was wonderful, as was the Creme Brûlée. Highly recommend both.

Some things are too high priced. Portion sizes however are good. Waiter and service was great. There’s a good selection on the menu. I would probably return again. I ordered pasta. That was a little disappointing. Too watery vs creamy. Thought there was suppose to be shrimp but didn’t see one. And I would recommend it to friends..depending on what they were looking for. My friend ordered the lamb and was extremely delighted with it

Magnum has always been our go to restaurant. Overall, this visit was a little disappointing. The service was incredibly slow considering the place was not exceptionally busy. We waited two hours before we even got our appetizer. We ordered several drinks which were forgotten about. By the time the meal was done, we were too tired to even stick around for dessert. While the food was delicious (for the most part), we noted to the server that one of the meals was cold, to which she simply replied “I will let the chef know” and nothing more was done about it.

Halibut overcooked, lamb shank undercooked. Scallops overcooked. Bill totally mixed up with our friends. Turned music off as a signal to leave, I guess.

We ordered the oysters and my friend had the lamb I had the duck nachos. Everything was DELICIOUS! They were lovely to accommodate us on the patio and kept the drinks flowing throughout the evening. Service was fabulous and friendly. We would gladly go back and eat her many times!

My dad and I came in two weeks ago and had the fish and chips, dressing and gravy, homemade tartar sauce, and a Caesar salad. The food was amazing and the service was superb. We came back a second time just a couple of days ago and ordered, duck confit nachos and scallops, as well as the pan fried cod with balsamic plums and the homemade fettuccine pasta with chanterelle mushrooms and scallops. We didn’t think the food from the first visit could be beat, but it was absolutely amazing! I could have hugged the chef! Not only is the food impressive, but the service is friendly and professional. The entire dining experience was superb and we will be sure to be back again and recommend to friends and family. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!

Our meal at Magnum and Steins was delicious. Two of us enjoyed the Halibut dish added to the menu that evening, the third member of our party had the duck confit tacos. All of the meals were exceptional. Service was fine, perhaps a little less attentive than we expected but certainly not a major issue.
I would highly recommend this local restaurant.
