Had dinner here our first night in town, loved the old home and it's furnishings. Top marks for just a wonderful place to explore before and after dinner. My wife spent as much time looking at the neat old furnishings as we did eating. Service was excellent, you are well taken care of when dining here. Staff is knowledgeable about... More

Had lunch on advice of sister-in-law. It exceeded expectations. Lovely homey environment, friendly good service and good well priced food. Will go back for dinner next time we are in town. Waitress said dinner reservations are advisable. Met the owner in his military memorabilia collection upstairs, what a great guy who knows everyone and everything about the area.

The outward charm of this gracious, rambling white frame house set amongst the coastal magnolia and live oak drew us in. There was a bit of a wait behind a large (mostly senior) lunch crowd, happily spent in the main upstairs collection of local military memorabilia. DJ our veteran waitress was an absolute hoot. She did a great job, fueled... More

While spending a month on the Emerald Coast we were tooling around Ft. Walton, FL. we literally took a wrong turn down a side street and saw this restaurant that was packed. It was noon and we had not eaten and the crowd sorta tweaked our curiosity. We stopped and went in and we entered one of the most interesting... More

The Magnolia Grill is located behind the main drag in Fort Walton in an old Florida style house which is absolutely charming and crammed with memorabilia. Lunch is a bit pricey but worth it for the atmosphere. Food was great although I had some qualms when my pot roast was served diced. It was, however, melt in the mouth delicious... More

Don't miss eating here!! The steak is the bomb. Tender, juicy and even better the next day!!! No A1 needed here. A lovely older lady meets you at the door with a beautiful and warming smile. Our waitress was great, came back when needed but didn't hover. Prices aren't too bad.

We have driven by many times and finally decided to stop for lunch. Glad we did. Prompt friendly service,great food and reasonable prices. It was one o'clock and we were promptly seated and waited on. My wife and I both had the chicken pot pie and our daughter had the chicken stir fry. All three came with soup for $11.00... More

Lunch at the Magnolia Grill was a great choice. Dined with 3 others. The crab cake with shrimp, fettuccine with Alfredo sauce was delicious. My husband had the beef stew which he liked. Add to your must go to list.
