I've only been for breakfast in the interest of full disclosure, but it's been great every time. Small town feel, great food, and reasonable prices.

We were visiting in the Magnolia area and the couple took us there for lunch. The food was excellent. It was great that old friend could catch up and just sit and relax, not rushed or anything. Love that it was very casual. Home cooking too. Plenty of food too. Will definite go back there again.

I absolutely could have stayed home and had better but when down to visit family there isn't much to choose from nearby. We been here for lunch also and I was not impressed. My husband is a Chef and we work in food service so if you want quality go somewhere else, if you want cheap canned diner food then... More

Enjoyed a great breakfast here this morning. The scrambled eggs were just right, homes fries with onions also and with sausage, rye toast and coffee it was a filling meal. Great friendly service and the prices were low. Lovely restful decor. A bit off the beaten path, but if you are close stop by.

The food was great. It made our weekly family get together great. Our waitress was only 16 years old and had a great work ethic. Seems to me that this place knows how to pick employees. They also know how to treat their customers. Keep doing what you do magnolia owner!

Stopped here when passing through town. Based on the good reviews, I was expecting a nice, homemade meal. What we got seemed was stale and canned. My husband had the BBQ chicken and it was incredibly dry with only a small amount of sauce. He said it tasted like it had been made the day before and nuked up. I... More

We frequent the Magnolia Restaurant often and are never disappointed. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient - never a long wait for a great meal. Family owned and locally staffed, we always feel like we just ate a friend's house.

My wife and I have stopped here a couple times and the food here is simple but quite tasty. On this visit my wife had their chicken salad wrap with fries and I had their Cajun Tilapia with a cup of clam chowder, lima beans and dumplings and sweet potato. My wife thought her sandwich had a bit too much... More
