“Great local place”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Atmosphere and food were both great. Their crab claws are amazing! Great place for a date or family dinner. Every aspect of our dinner was fabulous. Would go again.

“Fabulous Dinner!”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Just finished a wonderful dinner at Magnolia Grill. We had 7:30 reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. This is a charming old house with ambiance ....pictures and memorabilia from the Rice family who have been in the area for generations. The four of us ordered different entrees. Two of us had FRENCH ONION SOUP!!! It was without a doubt the best French onion soup ever. Salads were fresh and tasty. I had filet mignon with shrimp (surf and turf). My husband had ribeye, son had Italian trio, daughter in law had chicken parmesan. All were delicious, but the steak was prepared perfectly and melted in your mouth. Service was great. Friendly, attentive and not obtrusive. We will go back again before this vacation is over!!!

“Horrible service with bad to mediocre food”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Arrivec had to wait for table 20 minutes. Not to bad. Appetizer carb claws in garlic butter sauce great. From there on it was down hill. Service was slow. Scallops so tuff they would bounce. To adults two tween children. 3 salads brought out. Where is fourth. "I will see about it" by the time it arrived the others were done and then entrees arrived. Server never came to see if everything was ok. Bud boy cleared. Other tables around us were seated after us and yet were leaving as we were still waiting for our check.
