We did the Chef's Table and I highly recommend doing this if you want to try the best of what is available. We had 5 courses, all served with a wine pairing. Each course was delicious and the portions were perfect to ensure that you were not overfull before making it to dessert. The service was fantastic as well. I... More

Great date night dinner. I had the filet that was cooked perfectly. My other had the lamb which he enjoyed. Sarah is a wonderful waitress and made us feel like VIP's. We are locals and always enjoy the attentive service and wonderful food!

Very romantic inn dining experience. Quintessential of romance. Waitresses were attentive. We both need allergy accommodations in that our meals must be gluten free and diary free. The chef was able to make risotto special for us and make some swaps. Our meals were awesome. Nice wine menu. Prices seemed in line with what we expect from similar quality restaurants... More

Enjoyed a marvelous dinner at this lovely B&B. Very fresh ingredients with an unexpected culinary flair one would be more accustomed to find in a larger city. Our hostesses were very friendly and professional, making us feel more like friends or house guests than patrons. The house and grounds are beautiful and well-kept. Highly recommend and look forward to returning... More

We were served a wonderful dinner outside on the porch at the Mountain Magnolia Inn. The staff were attentive and friendly, and the food was magnificent.

We came to the Mountain Magnolia twice for breakfast and one evening for dinner, while staying at a cabin a little ways away. The dinner was wonderful, the wine list had a good selection with reasonable pricing, the service was friendly and unobtrusive. The evening was unforgettable - a blend of the cuisine, the relaxed pace, the porch dining setting,... More

Every item on the buffet was superb - not simply excellent - from the filet mignon, fresh trout, veggie lasagna, mashed potatoes, mashed butternut squash, fresh green beans and spring salad. And it's all organic from their own garden and gluten-free! Their breakfast buffet for people staying at the Inn was also quite well prepared, ample and varied including an... More

Food excellent, although we found it was overpriced. This is Hot Springs and not Asheville or Charleston. You pay for the ambiance we guessed. We had two people waiting on us, a very friendly young man, who did his best, but needs to be better trained and a lady who was very attentive to our special requests. Overall we enjoyed... More

Thanks for you nice review and valuable feedback. Raven is an enthusiastic you man still in training and we may have turned him loos too soon. On the question of price, high quality foods (mostly organic) and an experienced chef cost us the same as Charleston and Asheville so our pricing is similar to the finest restaurants in those cities....
