Magnuson Kitchen + Brewery
We thought we would give this new place a try. Made a reservation since it was a weekend and places in Ruston fill up fast, we were seating almost right away, and given food menu's but no drink menu, so we had to hunt one down. Our waiter was very nice and came and took our drink and food orders in a timely manner, we both ordered drinks but they took about 10 minutes to get them (we did not order a mixed drink either). It took about 40 minutes before we finally got our food, and we were both excited to try the "Chef's picks" of Bahn Mi and the friend chicken sandwich, but our excitement soon was extinguished. My Sisters sandwich was on what I can only assume was days old bread as it was hard and tough to take a bite out of, the shrimp was ok, could have used some citrus or a sauce like a traditional bahn mi. The chicken sandwich left a lot to be desired, it was literally a piece of dry fried chicken that had no seasoning or flavor on a bun with a piece of lettuce and a small smear of mayo. Maybe we came on an off night, or maybe we should have gotten a regular item and not one of the "Chef Choices" but with the slow service and the low quality of food I cannot recommend.
Awful food and pricey... I recommend people to go spend your money at WildFin.. The food was dry and flavorless
Loud, cold, unfriendly hostess and rude waiter. Beer was not good and overall the experience was expensive for what little satisfaction it offered. Save your money.
When we arrived, they were closed!!
