Romantic Dinner in Historic House

This was a very unique dinner setting! The historic house was gorgeous and the staff set the mood for a romantic dinner! A bit pricey, but worth it!

Elegant dining, excellent chef-prepared. If the weather is good, eat on the porch. Off the main street of Hot Springs, but easy to find.

I had the filet, done to perfection. Delicious! My partner had the shrimp and was disappointed with the sparse helping of shrimp- 3 count! oops... I was elated with my meal. We had a fabulous bottle of red, and I didn't note which it was- I believe the Merlot. We had our group of songwriters and spouses with us and... More

Sat on the veranda for dinner until a thunder storm blew in but the staff quickly moved us inside. The view from the veranda was spectacular and we did get to enjoy it for an hour. The food was delicious and many items are locally grown or raised. My filet came from a local organic grass fed beef ranch and... More

Eight of us drove one hour to dine at this mountain restaurant. Excellent service was provided by Sarah and others. 3 of us had the shrimp risotto and came away disappointed. The risotto was not fully cooked, flavorless, and in graet need of seasoning. We asked whether the shrimp were from the Carolina coast and were assured that they were.... More

I can vouch for the shrimp - we have a man from Wilmington who brings shrimp and other wonderful seafood when he has it. I was there when he made his first delivery. Sorry the risotto wasn't perfect. Glad you had a good time. Pete More

My husband and I dined on the porch while listening to the piano being played in the main house...very romantic! As we waited on our delicious filet dinner the fireflies showed up and seemed to be dancing to the piano music! We were completely entertained and completely satisfied with every aspect of our evening at The Mountain Magnolia Inn Restaurant.... More

My husband and I decided to come to the Inn for dinner on my Birthday. This is easily the best meal we've had in the area. The service was excellent. My lobster bisque and fillet mignon lobster tail dinner was amazing! We sat on the patio and looked at the beautiful Appalachian mountains listening to the piano being played in... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant. The magnificent views were surpassed only by the delicious food. I had a steak which was perfectly cooked by Chef Zeb McDermott. If you are looking to get away from chaotic city restaurants, this is the perfect spot. Plan to relax and enjoy all that is offered at Mountain Magnolia Inn, and... More

We ate at the Inn last night for the first time (an Anniversary celebratory dinner). The meal was fabulous!! My husband had the lamb chops with roasted potatoes and squash; he kept remarking about how good the broth was at the bottom of his plate! I had the lobster bisque and small plate of duck breast. The bisque offered me... More

Unfortunately, we had a little snafu. The waitress forgot to put in our order, and no one noticed until nearly an hour later when I inquired about the wait. However, we all laughed about it, and they bought our wine for us. Dinner was excellent and worth the wait.
