Food was very fresh. Had the scallops special and they were amazing, some of the best I've eaten! Great view and patio, as most of the restaurants have in Lunenburg.

We were early in the season and it was very cool outside yet the inside was stifling warm and stuffy. We ate on the deck. The service was very good. As per TA advise, we tried the peanut soup which was very unique. I enjoyed trying something new but probably wouldn't order it again....think warm, melted peanut butter. On the... More

As a visitor from Florida, you would seem to think the rule may be that the further you go from the keys, the better the Key Lime Pie gets. Magnolia's key lime pie has been exceptional for years, and the rest of our lunch did not disappoint! The burger was incredible as well. Overall, highly recommended.

This quiet bistro is unassuming , but once you sit down and have the personal service and taste the delicious food - you're set! Wonderful, the best scallops according to my husband and they make every effort to make sure your meal is perfect. Not a touristy "bus stop", obviously a local favorite, and ours!

We saw the tripadvisor sign and we went into the grill. The wait staff was attentive, and easily explained the menu. The food was nicely presented. The scallops were very good, fresh, and prepared neatly, and presented very nicely.

The Magnolia is a small restaurant across the street from Smugglers Cove Inn. We went there on our last night in Lunenburg, and wished we had gone sooner The food was fantastic and more inventive than most of the other restaurants in town. Small menu but specials. great place

If u want the worlds best fishcakes - this is it. Look no further. Try having them without rhubarb relish. They will ruin you for life. Don't be afraid to wash them down with (she says redundantly)...you guessed it...worlds best..Keylime pie. Simple. Perfect. Simply perfect. Throw in the unique but retro flair, wall of fame, and a big Tom Selleck... More

Was recommended by a local to go to Magnolia's for lunch. My wife had the fishcakes and I had the lobster linguine and they were both very good. Service was great I would strongly recommend them.
