    Service was wonderful. Some food AMAZING other food not as great, but ok. Decorating is beautiful. Was very loud. Not a place to go for having a conversation. I wish it had a kids menu.

    Took a friend for her first Magnolia experience and she was very pleased. As usual the food was delicious and the service excellent. If I lived closed, Magnolia would see me at a lot more often. Highly recommend Magnolia Tavern.

    Poor service and it wasn’t that busy. Water all over the table but waited 15 mins for the server to come back with napkins. I really go excited to go to this restaurant but left very disappointed.

    For what we spent I figured my steak would at least be seasoned. It was so bland. I tried the tacos and same thing. In the past I have had good food here but it is going down hill. The only redeeming factor was the drinks. They are great!

    Magnolia Tavern is a great little spot. I went for the first time this week and would definitely go again. The menu is nicely varied, but not too much. The service was great and it was a nice tavern atmosphere with plenty of TVs for both football and the World Series. My only suggestion would be to dim the lights even just a bit in the evening. It felt very bright.

    Not enough wait staff to provide good service. The food was all under seasoned. For the price vs quality of food & service, we will not be returning.

    Fried chicken wings were bland, cheese fries with pulled pork, ok yet the pork needed more bbq sauce. Prices are a little high. We spent $130.00 for 3 people. 2 meals 6 drinks. Yhe tavern is a cool and clean place, nice. Might give it one more try?

    Staff was super nice and attentive. When we first arrived my daughter spilled a drink and the staff was so kind and helped clean the mess even when I said I would do it. The food was so good and we will definitely go back. Loves the atmosphere! Cute place!

    Nice layout and interior furnishings. Classic tavern feel. The bar has a very cool look to it. . Noise echos off the concrete floors and metal ceiling. The host and servers have a little bit of an edge to them. It was my fault for not asking what the fair market price was for steak and eggs. But I never would have dreamed that it would be$58.

    Aside from the unremarkable food and service, the sub was beating hot and too bright for comfortable dining. I’d suggest the owners invest in shades for the dining room.

    We sat outside on the side patio. Lovely spot, great food, and great service. The only thing was the traffic was so noisy that I couldn’t hear my friend speak when a truck would go by, we’d pause and then continue with the convo.

    I have been wanting to go here for months and we finally made it happen and sadly I was not impressed with the food & I am a huge foodie. However the cocktails were on point and the service was great. I had a smokey bloody Mary which had burnt ends as a topper and that was so good!! As far as food went I decided on the biscuit breakfast sandwich which had fried chicken, egg, cheese and bacon smothered in gravy. I was so excited to try the biscuits and the fried chicken, two birds one stone I heard these two things were really good, but man was I so disappointed. I understood the biscuits are made in house and everyone raves about the fried chicken so I was ready to try this out. The presentation was on point but the biscuit was burnt on the bottom it was not a light fluffy biscuit at all could barely cut through it with the knife and my chicken was rubbery. 😒 I give it a three star because restaurant was clean, staff is friendly, craft cocktails were yummy but the food was a disappointment sadly.

    Father's day and kids or adults were not allowed to order orange juice because they needed it for mimosas?! And..why should we make reservations and then be told "go ahead and seat yourself and not check to see if we had a reso? Oh and could you possibly buy bigger Mugs for coffee if your going to push a brunch menu, then not keep coming around with refills? Nope. That that was our 4th attempt at coming in Not worth it

    Great venue in brush prairie! Tasty food, outstanding cocktails & solid service. I recommend the gumbo, but everything is good. Signature cocktails offer new spins on old favorites. So happy to have an upscale option locally.

    The food and drinks were excellent. I particularly liked the Low Country dip and chips, there just weren’t enough chips. They gladly brought more when asked. It was just loud, too loud to carry on a conversation. I would definitely go back

    Good was just okay. I love fried chicken and mashed but this wasn’t anything special or above in terms of flavor. I truly have never met a potato I didn’t love, but the mashed potatoes here were almost watery in flavor. I probably won’t go here again. The place was very loud and the food wasn’t worth a repeat experience.

    We found our experience at Magnolia Tavern to be pleasant, but certainly not perfect. Service was efficient and effective. Food was up and down. We ordered the BLT and the Creole Linguini; while the BLT was terrific, the Creole Linguini was greatly lacking in flavor. The chef seemed to have lost the seasoning - and if you know anything about the food of New Orleans, there is ALWAYS incredible seasoning. The drinks were good, but overpriced... and honestly, the entirely menu is somewhat inflated. We've been here before, and will probably again, as it is within walking distance of our home... but it's definitely not on our favorite list, just convenient.

    My parents had the shrimp and grits and the Cajun linguine. Both said the food was very good. I had the shrimp po' boy. My sandwich was fine, but nothing to rave about. The food is a little spendy, but where isn't it now? The only real issue I had with the place was the noise. Super, super loud. Could barely hear each other across the table from one another. Might be better if it was sometime other than a Friday evening.
