excellent eggplant parm

This is a charming place with a cozy atmosphere - old Florida! There is a museum upstairs that's worth taking a look.

Food and Service was excellent. The Eggplant Parmigan was prepared very nicely and tasty. This lunch meal was worth traveling for and I will be back.

OK but nothing great. Would have liked to see some fresh vegetables. Had the special fish which turned out to be dripping in butter/oil. Would not return.

This is by far my favorite place to eat in Fort Walton Beach when I get to the coast. The unique atmosphere, the wonderful owners and the food is always delicious. And when you visit, be sure to see the museum upstairs. Simple divine place and will always return when in town!

I had the stuffed flounder with the twice baked potatoe, vegetables, and a wonderful side of the Chef's kmHot Sausage. Grilled shrimp was our other entree; both were perfect!!!! We also, heartily recommend their broiled... More

When we visited Fort Walton Beach the Magnolia Grill came highly recommended by our realtor. It did not disappoint! My family went for lunch and the food, service and atmosphere was wonderful! Our picky 12 year old son said his meatball sandwich was the best he ever tasted and the apple pie was the best he ever had as well... More

The food was great! I had the grilled shrimp with a twice-baked potato and a medley of green vegetables, and my partner had the chicken parmigiano. We both had the soup:I had the gazpacho which was filled with fresh chunks of tomatoes and other vegetables while John had the seafood gumbo filled with shrimp and fresh chunks of vegetables. Even...

Had THE BEST experience and meals here while in town for spring break with our teenage daughters...and you KNOW how picky they can be. We all loved the setting and atmosphere and it reminded us of back home near Cape May NJ. Would definitely come back here again.

Good food, interesting ambiance, military museum upstairs in an old, reconditioned house that was purchased from an early Sears & Roebuck catalog!

It was my Mom's 67th birthday. She's always wanted to go Magnolia Grill. We thought this would be a great surprise because she doesn't get out that much. The food was amazing. The service, however, was the worst I've ever experienced. We had to constantly ask for drink refills. It took us over 2.5 hours from start to finish. We... More
