“Great Ambience and Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The restaurant is set in a refurbished mill which provides a great ambience with a wide variety of seating options - from a great outside patio that borders the W&O Trail to a fun bar area to a downstairs dinning area filled with old mill memorabilia. The upstairs 'overflow' dinning area does not have as good of an ambience as the downstairs area.

The menu is fresh with lots of options. The tomato smoke gouda soup is excellent. The dishes are fresh which can draw out the service, but that is fine as the food is worth the wait. Enjoy.

“Unexpected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We were staying in Middleburg and were recommended to this restaurant by locals. They were definitely correct. The menu was wonderful especially considering where we were. The waitress was a delightful person. The meal of Salad Special, Beef Filet and Flounder topped with Crab was amazing. Who would have thought this restaurant would be in such a small town. This restaurant supports the local wine industry which I commend them for. Their receipt for dinner states at the bottom "If your dining experience was not a ten please let me know...Managing Partner." All restaurants should be so dedicated to their customers. Worth the trip to find this place.

“Gem in a little town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We spent weekend get away from DC and found this restaurant. Good quality food and great service, I must say. The mill itself adds up as dining experience. We had entrée salad, steak and bread pudding-yummy! Next time, we will try trios--3 types of local beer samples. Magnolia has pretty good selections of local beer and wine.

“Really good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

On a recent trip through this area we dined at the Magnolia. We were not disappointed either. We enjoyed tasty meals of scallops and rockfish. Each was served with risotto which was cooked to perfection. This is not a cheap dinner but for a special meal that is of quality and service to match, I would highly recommend the Magnolia.

“Love everything about this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

As Leesburg residents, my husband and I frequent Magnolia's often. We love the atmosphere, the refurbished building, and the delicious food and drinks. This is a place we bring family members too when visiting from out of town or meet friends for a catch up dinner date as it's very nice but not uppity. The outdoor area is amazing when the weather is nice and the loft upstairs is great year round. Their food is wonderful, from the salads to the steaks to the pizza to the fish. Their brunch is also delicious! If you are a salad eater, the endless summer harvest with grilled chicken is very tasty. The french onion soup is amazing....lots of onions, cheese, and bread topping. My husband usually sticks with the beef items like the burger or steaks and always enjoys them. The service can be a bit spotty at times but overall is usually pretty good. Also, we have had some trouble with them finding our reservations on more than one occasion (usually when we call in versus using open table). Would definitely suggest going here if you get the opportunity!
