First meal at Magnolias was free, part of a promotional program. I had prime rib which was one of the best (taste and tenderness) that I have had in years. ( I enjoy prime rib and order it often in establishments throughout the country). However, when my wife and I returned based on the excellent first experience, I was a bit disappointed. I found the price to be higher than expected, which would not have been an issue, but the prime rib was small, and the excellent taste I had experience the first time was lacking. And not just piling on, but I did not find it quite as tender. I was disappointed. Perhaps Magnolias should offer specials including the prime rib and ensure that when they do the quality is up to the par that it was on my first visit.

“Our new favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2012

We found the place on a friends recommendation and now we can't recommend it enough ourselves. The staff was nice and resturant was very clean. Seafood is the thing to get but the prime rib might be just as good. Do yourself a favor and check it out , you will be back.

“Cozy Local Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

Great off season deals. Regular menu is pricey for the quality of the food but the specials make it affordable. The decor is very pretty and the bar is friendly with a nice happy hour menu. One of the few restaurants open all year in this resort town. Shrimp salad is the best around!!
