    Great for a low-key happy hour with spruced up cocktails and added gourmet touches to traditional happy hour menu items. Energetic ambiance and quality service.

    It was a completely open restaurant. Cold blustery day and no heat for the requested indoor table. Moved to a table a bit more inside, but it was still cold. The tables were small and cramped and able to hear conversations on either side. The food was served lukewarm and I ordered a hamburger that was put on a starter plate with no sides or garnish.

    Love this place for its atmosphere and drinks! The service from Daisy was great. Just the right amount of attention. As for the food….it was good. I had the shakshuka and my husband had the magnolia breakfast sandwich. Both were good and decently priced. But for my husband and me, the draw is the atmosphere, drinks, and vibe. Will definitely come back again.

    We went to Magnolia House for a quiet birthday celebration for our friend. It was perfect. We enjoyed Happy Hour prices, a great bourbon burger, develed eggs, an eggplant dish and zuchinni bites. We shared and had great conversation. At the end, we enjoyed a chocolate bread pudding, (I think) complete with birthday candle and champagne toasts. This was perfect. Thank you.

    Service was a bit slow. Brought my friend the wrong food and then took forever to bring avocado toast. At least 15 minutes. I didn’t eat my waffles till her food came so they were cold

    Nothing blew us away. I did like the deviled eggs, French fries, and the olives though, but skip the chicken wings and the bucatini. It ended up being really expensive for meh food.
