Mrs. M and I were travelling from NJ to Pittsburgh and were looking for a lunch stop. I found this little place on tripadvisor and we were both happy I did. It's only five minutes off Exit 236 (Harrisburg/Gettysburg). The food was great and arrived quickly, delivered by our charming and attentive waitress, Laura. We both loved that she was... More

I went there last week and was very disappointed with one of my favorite places. Two hours into the dinner hour the server could not tell me the one special for the evening. The portions were half of what they usually are and the risotto-usually a winner-was not well made. So, what happened? Maybe the fact that the great chef... More

This location has indoor and outdoor seating. They have specials each day. The wait staff is knowledgable about the selections and options for the day. The sandwiches and wraps are good and plentiful. You will not leave hungry. The cost is very reasonable. They also have very nice salads. They do have a regular turkey wrap but they also have...

We had not been here in about 6 months. The experience was just as we had remembered: very good. We both chose the veal marsala dish which was served w/mashed potatoes and green beans. The veal was quite tender as one would expect, the sauce and mushrooms complimented rather than overpowered the dish, the mashed potatoes were well-textured and tasty,... More

They had a very large and varied menu so I am not sure how everything could be fresh or made in-house so I opted for the daily special. The food was fine and the service very good. I would recommend this place. The only tip is to ask if the dish has gravy on it and to ask for it... More

Some local friends recommended Cafe Magnolia to us and it ended up being the highlight of our 3 day trip to the Harrisburg, PA area. While our GPS challenged us to find this worthwhile eatery, we were soon welcomed by several friendly staff members and promptly seated without reservations. Not only was our waitress attentive and professional, her wonderful sense... More

On entering the restaurant we were welcomed with a smile by the Manager. The atmosphere had a French feel which was immediately relaxing. The staff are well trained and know their craft and are prepared to offer help in making a choice. The food arrived very quickly and was presented with skill. Having visited several restaurants in New York during... More
