Magnolia Grill is consistently good, but the restaurant's design is a bonus for this covid virus time. It was great for social distancing. There were 6 of us, and everyone enjoyed their meals. A few also enjoyed it the next day for lunch. Service very...good and responsive to requests. I recommend you try it on your next visit to Fort Walton Beach.More
This was an anniversary celebration with my wife and friends. The food was satisfying and tasty with good to large portions. The ambience was full of fun memorabilia from a life time of service to the country and community, it felt like coming home to...mom's house for dinner from the personable and informal service to the preparation of the dishes. Everything was good but nothing was special which is what we were looking for in a celebration dinner. I would go back again knowing that I'm going to "Mom's".More
We went to Magnolia for a quick lunch and it was a great surprise. The food was very good, the service outstanding as well as the ambiance. My only regret is that I just went there in my last day of trip. Would be very...pleasant to try other dishes on their menu.More
I love to travel and love to eat! This spot was highly recommend for the best Italian food in Fort Walton Beach. It's not Italian. The menu looked good, but pricey and I was shocked at how either bland or way too salty everything was......If it wasn't for the staff or the fact that the manager wore a Notre Dame mask, I would have rated it a 2. The spot is in a cute, historical home and if you like to see antiques, it is cute. I can't say I had any dessert, but the dessert tray looked amazing., The fact that neither my mom, nor sister, finished their desserts, means that they are way to big or just ordinary. Very nice staff.More

Thank You for joining us and your kind words. Please let me give you a tour of the historic building on your next visit.
Had been wanting to eat here for a while. During ordering, mentioned gluten-free restrictions and asked for no bread, SPECIFICALLY, no bread! Food was brought with bread hidden under the fish. This may not mean a lot if gluten doesn’t bother you, but for people...with a gluten intolerance, unintentionally eating gluten can knock you down for 24 hours and be extremely painful. The waitress showed zero care for our questions and concerns during the brief time we were here, and didn’t even bother marking the ticket with our requests (again, this may not seem egregious for those without any dietary concerns, but I would bet that ANY concerns or requests are disregarded as well).
The food (few bites we did take) was terrible. Food was from boxed (rice pilaf), salad was wilting, dressing was bottled, meat was previously frozen, broccoli tasted like it was from one of those steam packs, and everything was EXTREMELY over priced for the low level of quality you get.
Avoid this place.More

Sorry I am confused by the question. This is not my restaurant. It is a restaurant I reviewed. I'd say casual dress is ok - not fancy. The food and service was very good! Take time to go look at the historical items upstairs... More
