We walked in around 12:30 and waited about 5 min before being acknowledged and shown a place to sit. My husband had the buffet and sat down to eat and I had to ask if I could place an order. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich plate with a cup of fresh fruit. Chicken sandwich was just ok, I didn't... More

Family lunch. We tried several different sandwiches, all were very good. Nice atmosphere, good service, and the food was presented well. The german chocolate upside down cake was fantastic, and vinegar pie was good also. Would definitely recommend that you try this place!

Freshly cooked deli type foods with homemade breads & wonderful desserts. Place is a little cramped but is quant the strawberry pretzel salad & cocoanut cake are awesome!

I had lunch at Magnolia House this week expecting something outstanding; however, it was really rather ordinary except for its very attractive setting. The staff were friendly, but overall, the food was mediocre. I drove out of the way to get there expecting something as classy as its setting and was a little disappointed in the results.

You can sit with a small group or as a couple of friends! The décor is vintage French, and you can look at all the items if you are waiting for your food! Home style buffet serves Country Cooking!

This lunch-only restaurant was a real treasure. It had a one-trip buffet line with great home-cooking. The various rooms of the house were set up with tables for dining.

I love eating in old houses converted to a restaurant. This place didn't disappoint. They have a buffet and my friend really enjoyed it. My wife and I REALLY enjoyed the fried green tomato BLT. Awesome! Our other friend had a hot ham sandwich and she liked it.

This restaurant offers menu choices and a hot food bar. The best foods I enjoy here are the fried green tomatoes and the chicken salad.

My wife and I had a great lunch here a few years ago and she has wanted to go back whenever we were in the area. We recently had an opportunity to visit again. It was a mistake. Lunch, at least on this weekday, was choose a meat and three from their food bar for delivery to your table. The... More

Delicious southern comfort food! The chicken casserole, meatloaf, and the fried chicken are amazing. We also love their sweet tea. Our waitress was raving about the vinegar pie and actually brought us a complimentary piece. It is yummy! My husband really loves their butter pecan cake; it is quite delectable. The ambiance of the old Victorian home is very nice... More
