I love the old location, but I'm happy for the move because it's more convenient and I remember to go. Everything is fresh and delicious. Service is great. Not exactly economical for lunch, but worth it!

We are vegetarians. It's not always easy to find a great place when you are out of town. Google Vegetarian restaurant in Aiken and Magnolia will come up. What a delightful place. The house that the restaurant is located in is a nice old place that you would imagine when thinking about the ideal place for Southern Charm. The waiter... More

I think that this is the best lunch spot in Aiken. The food has improved and I enjoyed it before! The new bridge being built has probably hurt business. It is worth finding a spot to park on Park and walking.

Mom and I stopped in to pick up lunch for a picnic and we were more than pleased with our choice. The restaurant itself is very quaint with a beautiful shaded patio area (that's dog friendly too!). Our server was smiling the whole time and so, so, so friendly & polite. We decided to have some apple-blueberry cobbler while we... More

We had not heard about Magnolia's and while walking the streets, came across this delightful cafe. You can dine in or on nice days,there are some good tables outside. The food is all or mainly organic and delicious. We had a great waiter who was born in Aiken and took the time to tell us a little about what he... More

The portions are very small and some items on the menu are not available. The waiter was rude and acted like it was a bother to even get another glass of water. Ordered chicken salad on a bed of lettuce and was charged 50 cents for dressing. Not worth the money and will not be going back.

When I worked nearby the Magnolia, we'd end up there once every few months or so. The food is always really good, and you feel good for having eaten it. Everything is as local as it can get, and natural and tasty. That said, you're paying a premium for the privilege. It was too expensive to visit frequently, but it... More

First trip to Aiken, and happened to find this little gem off the downtown path. Nice menu choices, loved the chicken salad. It's not often you run across Chocolate Zucchini cake and I got a piece to go. Needless to say, it didn't make it out of the downtown area. I dined alone, but I think I was there an... More

I have a LOT of dietary restrictions, but I can always find something tasty and healthy to eat at Magnolia. Tommy, the owner/chef, is always accommodating. And when I'm in a rush (which is too often), the servers manage to get me in and out quickly without feeling rushed. This is a definite favorite of mine, and I can highly... More
