Found this restaurant recommended online and chose it for our anniversary dinner. The menu was terrific. Loved the options of small plates in addition to entrees ... but in the end we chose from the tasting menu which featured a variety of seafood - lobster, fried local shrimp, scallops and the best crab cakes I've ever had. Even the warm... More

Our meal was delicious. A lovely amuse with tender pork belly and a great sauce. One member of our party had the seafood sampler (lobster, shrimp, and something I forgot) and another had the wild sampler (duck, lamb, venison). I had the venison which was tender and not gamey and served with a wonderful sauce and vegetables. I also had... More

The food was delish and the service was so personal. Stayed in one of the most beautiful rooms on a trip with my fiancé and friends who frequent this B&B and I will never forget it. Must visit !!

Dinner was a wonderful surprise, a special occasion restaurant for locals a welcome change for the weary traveller. Food was excellent and creative. We had duck breast with polenta, the polenta was absolutely delicious and the duck breast nice and rare on the inside and surrounded by a crispy outside. Even the spinach salad appetizer was different and delic. Alas,... More

This is a WONDERFUL place to visit and eat a fabulous meal. This is by far above the normal fare available in the closest large town--Asheville. It is well worth the drive. Everything is prepared to perfection and the food melts in your mouth every bite. If you haven't tried the Mountain Magnolia Inn, you are missing out!

We enjoyed our meal on the back porch, outside. Loved the presentation of the scallop appetizer and the salad in the parmesan bowl. I have made 2 more meals from my leftover trout meal, along with the side of the polenta (or cheesy grits). Also the servers were very relaxed, personable while still being professional. Would return again!

The food rocked and the service was good. The surf and turf was to die for and the corn and crab chowder was so chick full of stuff you could stand a spoon in it! Thank you for a wonderful anniversary dinner!

I had no expectations of finding excellence on this short trip with 5 friends, our first to Hot Springs. Our designated trip planner clearly is the one for the job! We arrived early on a pleasant Saturday evening and enjoyed a bottle of prosecco in the very charming patio next to a landscape with lovely old trees and hammocks and... More

The young chef appears to be very talented. We ate at Mountain Magnolia Inn twice on our last visit to Hot Springs last year. We were not disappointed this time also. My husband says the salmon is the best his has ever had. I say the lasagna is the best I have ever had.
