“Need to step up a notch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Place has an amazing beer selection. The food is good but not great. Pricing would be extremely reasonable if the food was just a tad better. If you are in the area it is one of the best options out there.

“Great Service, Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

I made a reservation for 6 via Open Table which was effortless. Magnolia's called me an hour or so before me reservation to make certain they had it right. On a (rainy) Friday evening the place was packed but they had our table ready in a quieter place in the restaurant, so we there was no wait.
Our server was excellent as was the other staff. Our glasses were kept full and the delicious bread was plentiful. The food was excellent! The crab cake special was superb.

“Great Ambience and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

The restaurant is set in a refurbished mill which provides a great ambience with a wide variety of seating options - from a great outside patio that borders the W&O Trail to a fun bar area to a downstairs dinning area filled with old mill memorabilia. The upstairs 'overflow' dinning area does not have as good of an ambience as the downstairs area.

The menu is fresh with lots of options. The tomato smoke gouda soup is excellent. The dishes are fresh which can draw out the service, but that is fine as the food is worth the wait. Enjoy.

“Unexpected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

We were staying in Middleburg and were recommended to this restaurant by locals. They were definitely correct. The menu was wonderful especially considering where we were. The waitress was a delightful person. The meal of Salad Special, Beef Filet and Flounder topped with Crab was amazing. Who would have thought this restaurant would be in such a small town. This restaurant supports the local wine industry which I commend them for. Their receipt for dinner states at the bottom "If your dining experience was not a ten please let me know...Managing Partner." All restaurants should be so dedicated to their customers. Worth the trip to find this place.

“Gem in a little town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

We spent weekend get away from DC and found this restaurant. Good quality food and great service, I must say. The mill itself adds up as dining experience. We had entrée salad, steak and bread pudding-yummy! Next time, we will try trios--3 types of local beer samples. Magnolia has pretty good selections of local beer and wine.
