Great food, variety of unpredictable foods on the menu, quaint ambiance, always great service AND it's BYOB! Highly recommended!

I drove by this place and was a bit intrigued by the look. The menu has a nice cross section of goodies; with an emphasis on seafood. The strawberry salad was a sweet way to start the meal and the Tropical Sunfish with mango salsa was a great choice. As I look around the room it is clear that the locals know a good thing when they eat it. Several guests have brought in their own wine that is quickly opened, served and chilled. Great service ~ thanks Erica.

I will defiantly return when I am back in town!!

As I travel I am always looking for unique, local places to relieve the monotony of chain stores and restaurants. And with local restaurants, you're never sure of the quality.

Cafe Magnolia was a real find! Casual atmosphere, excellent food, decent prices.

I had the Panko Tuna, seared tuna over risotto, with a side of lightly-steamed snow peas. Each of these had a distinctive, and very good, look, texture, and flavor, and would have been great alone. Together they made an outstanding meal.

The Tiramisu was also very good, and while I didn't really care for the unusual presentation (in a martini glass?), I'll give points for the attempt. My only disappointment was it's a BYOB place, so I had no wine to accompany my dinner.

A nice, solid and unassuming spot. It was no longer BYOB by the time we went here, but the beer was cheap!!! Plus they had Budvar on tap! The food was bar food with a twist, and very tasty. Hope this place sticks around for a while.

I love this place! BYOB, great menu. In warmer weather, opt for the deck and dine al fresco!
