Great American Food but... Allows Smoking

Magnolia Diner has good food, I personally love their BLT because it's a classic sandwich and they don't try to make it fancy or re-invent the wheel with it. This place can get crowded on Sundays after church. It's a sit down place but you can also order take-out. Excellent and friendly... read more

Magnolia Diner used to be a good place to gather in Magnolia. Their business seems to have dropped off. We had breakfast and the wheat toast came with mold on the crust. We pointed this out and it was "no big deal...whould you like another?"

The Magnolia diner is a nice place to have lunch. We have never eaten dinner there, so I cannot comment on that. Prices are reasonable and food is good. Not outstanding, but good.

Great well priced menu. Good meal selection and quite fast. However you can smell their smoker's section. I'm not a fan of smelling like an ashtray.

We used to come here on Saturday late mornings for breakfast and enjoyed it. Our breakfast was served on a plate. Now, it seems that the breakfasts are served on throw out stuff.....like in a basket with tissue.....it's been a couple of years but since they started doing that -I haven't been back since.

All you smell is smoke. Second hand smoke is just as bad for you as if you smoked yourself. For the food, well it just comes right out of a freezer or can. Nothing taste homemade. Not a country style cafe so I really don't understand why it's in magnolia tx.
