This was our first visit and loved it! Excellent food- pasta with chicken or shrimp! Manicotti was superior! The cream sauce was to die for! It is a first Sear Roebuck home in the early years cost $2400.00. We would give the owners and servers 10 being the best! Oh! The dessert! Awesome!!!

Above average. The food is good, and the service is good. It's an eclectic place, owned by a local who is very involved in the community and with nonprofit organizations that support active duty and retired military personnel. These people are wonderful patriots, and the do a good job hosting special events at their restaurant...everything from political forums to black-tie... More

This was such a fun place to go and eat with my co-workers. Many antiques, beautiful woodwork, and oldies but goodies playing in the background. Upstairs they even have a museum but we did not visit. Food was okay although my co-worker said the sauce on her steak ruined it as it was very heavy and salty. My tide baked... More

My wife and I have being going to the Magnolia Grill for several years. When we are in Ft Walton the Magnolia is a must for dinner, we enjoy nearly all the local seafood but after a few days we need a good steak or prime rib, especially the prime rib at the Magnolia, I am a prime rib lover...

Recommended by a hotel concierge, we expected better than we found. It's more for retirees who don't want a lot of spice in their food. The service was slow, and it was relatively empty. Perhaps their style is more leisurely than we wanted. And it's definitely on the higher end of the midrange spectrum, and we just had lunch. Disappointingly... More

You are welcomed by the hostess and owner. The restaurant itself is a feast for the eyes and so quaint. The menu is awesome but when the food arrives you are blown away. The quality and the quantity is the best you will find in this area. We had the prime rib and stuffed flounder and will be having it... More

Live piano, wonderful hosts excellent food. And look at the history on the walls & upstairs. The story is almost as good as the food.
