We went twice thinking that the first visit was just a bad day. Our server was grumpy and we were lucky enough to get her both times. The food was ok but not worth the price paid. I don't feel that we will return a third time.

This was my first time at the Magnolia Grill. We were visiting from St Simons Island and met old time friends who have lived in FWB for many years. They were asked to select the restaurant- this was a great choice. We arrived early as we had read some of the Trip Advisor reviews; they recommended you enjoy the upstairs... More

I love this restaurant! I take all my company from out of town here! It's also my favorite for a romantic dinner. It's cozy and elegant. The food is always amazing!! The wait time for a table is sometimes long but it's so worth the wait!!

Best Italian food outside of Jersey, I've ever ate. Had Chicken Parmagiana with Marinara Sauce. Was great, good flavor-moist chicken. Portions good size. Sauce was great, just a touch of sweetness. Had house salad, they had 1/2 dozen pickeled cucumbers on the side. That really made the salad so much better. Had never had them with a salad before. Service... More

The food is excellent! The crab cakes over fettuccine are delicious, the shrimp and crab appetizer is beyond great! If I ever return here I will definitely come back to Magnolias. Aside from the great food and service you also have the chance to visit a small Airforce museum right inside this very quaint two story home. The evening was... More

Magnolia Grill has a varied menue. I had the Italian special for that night. Pasta, Veal and lasagna. It was all plenty and very good. Wife had fish of the day and it was good too. Service was fast and drinks refilled. Meal comes with soup or salad. Salad was fresh and a good size.

Staying at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Shalimar, I noticed an advertisement for the Magnolia Grill and the person on the front desk highly recommended it. I was told not to miss the museum upstairs. The whole experience was exceptional from start to finish. Pat (whose husband Tom is a real patriot) greeted my co-worker and me warmly. The... More

Enjoyed our dinner fireside with music. The Filet was incredible. It is a bit like eating in a museum but that is the charm.

The atmosphere is charming. The music was delightful. Our food was delicious. We had the shrimp/crab fingers dish with heavenly bread and some non-diet sauce. Also had a cup of gumbo that rivals mine (!) and the chocolate brownie pie. Karen, our waitress is wonderful, charming and efficient. She was so personable, brought things out not too fast/slow and made... More

We returned to The Magnolia House, after eating there several years ago. It was just as good as we had remembered. The Crab Cakes Alfredo were divine. I know that if we lived in Fort Walton Beach we would be regulars. For now, we just have to visit when we can. The service was great and of course the ambiance... More
