We went to Magnolia on July 4th. The wait to get seated was long, but well worth it. The pancakes are to die for and the eggs are delicious. I ordered the Ham and cheese omelet and a short stack. The omelet was cooked just right and it was tasty! The pancakes were light, fluffy and delicious! I love their... More

Ham and hashbrowns were delicious, service was fast. I know all the food is homemade, which I appreciate, but the english muffins in the eggs benedict were like thick hockey pucks, and the hollandaise sauce was too lemony.

I was staying very close to the restaurant this weekend, that is why I consider it to have breakfast (which it turns into lunch). 60 to 70 minutes waiting time, made me think that the food was going to be out of chart, don't you think? I order a chocolate chip pancakes and a chicken sandwich... IHOP is way better...... More

I am actually 2 years behind in writing this review, but I think of this place often. We were visiting on vacation and stopped by for breakfast. I won't be able to spell my favorite dish, but it was basically a giant pancake with apples baked in to it. I tell everyone I talk to about it. Can't wait to... More

After reviewing earlier reviews we came at 7am when they opened on the 4th of July to beat the rush. Pleasantly surprised, early enough to beat the crowd. Had to wait for 2 other family members to arrive but we were happy that they sat us without our full group as some other places would do. Simply put, there isn't... More

We stopped here based on the reviews posted here. We enjoyed every aspect of our visit. We all had the cake and eggs. We each tried different pancakes. I had the pecan and I asked for some praline sauce, which goes perfectly with the pecan pancakes. The old time decor is nice. On a side note, the toilet seats have... More

Had to wait at least an hour before we could get a table. The wait was totally worth it. I had the Turkey Hash with pancakes delicious food. I highly recommend this restaurant on your next visit to San Antonio, Texas!

Magnolia used to be my favorite place to have a delicious breakfast (pancakes, omelet) but ever since they expanded their business, the quality of the food has really decrease. I was very disappointed with the food since my last previous visits. I would not recommend this place anymore. Honestly, IHOP would be a better choice.

Super busy on Monday with 20+ wait. Choc chip pancakes -3-split b/t my 2 children and they couldn't finish them. I had eggs Benedict and it was delicious. Hash browns not so good. Skip them! Coffee 2.99 was good and comes in a thermal pitcher.

We stopped by here on a busy Sunday morning for breakfast before a day checking out San Antonio. We had a short wait before being seated and within no time had our order in. I got the apfel Pfannekuchen, an apple pancake, that was very tasty if not quite as fluffy as I was hoping (I had previously had an... More
