    Not our first time at the restaurant, but it was our first time in the lounge. For us it was perfect. Intimate setting, comfortable seats, quiet and great service. The drinks were good. The bar has a great selection. Food was fantastic, as usual.

    Wait staff and food was excellent. My husband’s pork chop was one of the best ever. It was a bit too loud which made it difficult for my husband to hear with hearing aids. Overall it was a great experience to end our day of driving.

    We had a wonderful lunch experience at Magnolia Table. We had reservations for 1:00 PM and were seated within ten minutes, even though the restaurant was packed. Everyone was very friendly and pleasant. We were waited on quickly and didn’t wait long for our drinks and food. I ordered the “ Jo’s Crunchy French toast”, which I thoroughly enjoyed. My husband ordered the “Farm Eggs Benedict” and our friend ordered the “ Farm Breakfast”. Everyone enjoyed their meals and thought that the food was delicious. We were pleasantly surprised that the prices were very reasonable, especially for a “celebrity restaurant”. We were visiting from New York and the prices would most likely be double there. I highly recommend stopping here to eat when in Waco. You won’t be disappointed!
