We had to wait 1hr to sit down in a restaurant that felt like a Denny's. The food was just too simple and one dimensional to compliment. The service was friendly but nothing to rave about.

The pancakes are soft and tasty. Do yourself a favor and get the bbq eggs benedict. The hash was also fantastic. The coffee is great as well.

I usually never complement a restaurant this much, but this place was amazing. No complaints at all. Food was cooked well, coffee was brewed perfect and the service was on point. Do call in for a reservation if possible, it's always busy.

The pecan pancakes, as well the apple cinnamon ones were excellent. The french toast and scrambled eggs are also very good. The atmosphere is nice. The service is friendly. This is an excellent place for breakfast. We were there a little after 8 AM on a Sunday, and luckily avoided the long wait that developed afterwards,

Amazing. Please download and use the no wait app. We checked in before we left our hotel and by the time we got there and checked in with the hostess, we were sat in 10 minutes (whereas people getting on the wait list when they arrived were told it was over and hour wait). The eggs Fitzgerald were amazing and... More

Great restaurant. Loved the Munich Apple Pfanne cooking. Come early, we waited 90 minutes; but worth the wait.

The Magnolia Pancake Haus was featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives”, and while we didn’t see the episode, we thought we would try it. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the amazingly good & large breakfasts. So much so, that we had breakfast here two days in a row. The pancakes come in a variety of choices... More

Wait time wasn't too bad this time, only about 20 minutes, even though it was a weekday and after 10 am. Longer wait times are a usual. My wife enjoyed her buckwheat pancakes and ham. I devoured my apple pancakes, eggs and bacon. It was an excellent meal.

This breakfast was so far out of the ballpark for good, that it ruined me for any other breakfast at any other restaurant! There was a 45 minute wait, but it was worth every minute. The corn beef hash was out of this world. But what topped it all off was the amazing Apfel Pfannekuchen. If you don't have this,... More

We had breakfast on the way from San Antonio back to Austin via the McNay and it was perfect. We were seated within five minutes, The service was friendly, well-informed and quick. And the food was hard-to-beat. Funnily enough, I am not a fan of pancakes but the eggs, ham, hash and toast I had were delicious and my friend... More
