After all the great reviews we were very disappointed. The service was very slow, the food was good but cold, my wife had salmon that was so small it was not even a portion for a child.

Can not go wrong here. We started with the fried green tomatoes- excellent and had salmon and pork as entrees that were also very good. Presentation was very nice. This place is a great alternative to most of the other alternatives in Woodstock. Nice place but not pretentious.

Our family received a gift card to dine here for Christmas. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal! The atmosphere was cozy and inviting. We had the baked Brie appetizer...amazing! My only disappointment was trying to get a second glass of wine. I had to remind our server that a second glass had not been brought.....my husband never got his. In regards to the food, I will definitely return!

Very nice restaurant with something of a throw-back ambience like a genteel Southern restaurant from another time. Service was very attentive from Nathan. Went on a Sunday evening so it was quiet. Nice beer and wine menu. Food menu had many items that looked good but we only ordered the fried, stuffed artichoke for an appetizer, the fried chicken breast for entree (recommended by Nathan), and the flour-less chocolate cake. There were three BIG fried stuffed artichokes on the appetizer (looked like a panko batter). It was a little too much for the two of us and a bit too salty. We each ordered the fried (panko again) chicken with black-eyed peas salsa and grits. Holy cow -- they were huge! We called them Dolly Parton breasts. Anyway, we could have ordered one, split it and still have leftovers to take home. It was good, but a lot of food -- Nathan said our plates were the biggest he had seen so maybe the chef just felt generous that night. The flour-less chocolate cake was very chocolately and nicely complemented with whipped cream and two berries on the side. If I were in the Woodstock area again, I would certainly consider going back but I live in another part of town.

always a treat .. had not been back in several years. just a great place... probably the most conducive is 'uncrowded' seating. tables are spaced to allow intimacy and easy conversation, unbothered by who is at next table.
# 2 - the menu is inspiring - tough to make a choice. always interesting and unique cuisine. a joy and refreshing.

We went to magnolia Thomas House for Sunday Brunch which was a buffet. I am not a fan of buffets but the food was good. Not a large selection. The fried chicken was delicious. The pricing was a great value. Service was a bit slow. especially for drink refills. One complaint was square coffee cups that were very odd to drink out of.

Our dinners there have always been great! The food, the service, and the cozy, quaint atmosphere is wonderful. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. They have a great guitar player that plays softly in the background too. ..My favorite thing there is the tomato basil soup and the oil/honey combo for dipping their SOFT, WARM rolls - and that is important to me! Plus, you can use Groupon which makes the meal affordable.

Our first visit with friend from out of town. Attractive building with southern charm, very clean, open and airy, yet half walls provided privacy. Very friendly staff, nicely appointed tables and linens, plenty of room between tables. Service was prompt, good bar selection, nice variety on the menu. Most of the food was exceptional and moderately priced. Would definitely return. Fried chicken may have been the favorite meal.

We really enjoyed our dinner! The food and service was outstanding!! We were not seated in the main dining room, and the room was a little chilly. The staff turned the heat up, but it never quite reached a comfortable temperature. We ordered the fried green tomatoes, which were some of the best I’ve ever had, and the meatballs, which were delicious too!! For dinner, we ordered the Coffee crusted steak, amazing, and the chicken stuffed with spinach and asparagus, great flavor!!! I would definitely recommend this neighborhood gem to everyone! I look forward to going back for their Sunday Brunch... I hear it’s great!

We love the quiet relaxing atmosphere at MTH. The menu is varied and has something for every taste, as well as a Chef's Special. Every item is made fresh upon ordering and so worth the wait. The Servers are very attentive and know the menu items inside out. We always request Nathan!
We had a Groupon deal that made the value even better.
I can't think of anywhere I'd rather go for an adult dinner in a peaceful, beautifully decorated home atmosphere. When the gentleman is there strumming the guitar, his music is low key and very nice background for conversation or just listening.
Lovely place!

There were no spirits available for pre dinner drinks.
The menu hadn’t changed since our last visit (about 8months).
We requested 1 main meal without risotto as my husband can’t eat cheese - it arrived with it. As a table of two it’s awkward eating on your own. As it was his birthday it sort of ruined the evening.
We won’t hurry back

I totally loved it. It was my third time there and their food is excellent but this time I ordered the blackened salmon with berry sauce and it was absolutely delicious. Perfectly prepared salmon and the mashed potatoes that came with it were unusual in their combination of ingredients but very well matched. One thing I do want to suggest: the side vegetable was supposed to be Okra but they were out of okra and offered instead asparagus. I was so glad for the substitution and felt that it combined well with the rest. I would suggest to keep the asparagus as the main choice of vegetable for those of us who dislike okra. I have never tried their okra so maybe they prepare it in a way that merits tasting it, but I was glad to avoid it. The waiter was very attentive and helpful but at the same time gave us our space, so the service was great. I also love the ambiance, so quaint, makes you feel like you are the guest at someone's grandma's house, in a nice way. Everyone in my party of 4 was happy with their food, and how quiet and relaxed it felt. We had a corner table by the window and it felt as private as if we were the only ones there, tables are far enough apart. We also stopped on our way out to enjoy the fire pit with chairs to sit around, if you feel like continuing your conversation outside, it's a nice touch.

We eat brunch here often.
Used Opentable app to make reservation a few weeks out for Sunday Brunch at 2:00 pm. I️ requested in my reservation to be contacted if the restaurant was going to be very busy. Friday I received a call from Jenna at Magnolia Thomas to help me find an area of the restaurant that is quiet. Upon arrival Sunday we were provided the perfect table for seven. Had a great time. Waitress was great. Groupon saved me $80.
