Magdalena's closed a few months ago and will not reopen as a restaurant. Just wanted to give a shout out before driving to Weeki Wachee. We still have other nice restaurants in the area.

These people are from a European background and make flavorful home style dishes. Stuffed cabbage, stuffed peppers, fried chicken livers, and a variety of old fashioned dinners.

I gave Magdaleana's a 5 star rating, as a tribute to all the years they were in business. Owned and operated by a lovely couple from Romania, they provided great homemade dishes for locals and tourists alike. Although the restaurant is no longer there, they will be sorely missed. My condolences go out to the family for their recent loss.

Always wanted to try this place but it Wan never open when we came by. From the looks of the building it couldn't be determined whether it was still in business or not. I see from another post it is now closed. Oh well!

It was great while it lasted, but Magdelena's is now closed! Once a great German restaurant, it leaves an unfilled hole in the gastronomic community around Weeki Wachee. I only hope someone moves in and does good German cooking again!;

My husband and I were somewhat disappointed in Magdalena's. The older gentleman who seated us didn't seem at all friendly or happy to seat us. After we were seated the older woman who was waiting tables - the ONLY woman waiting tables - walked by and said, "it's going to be a bit; I just got a party of 6... More

When entering this restaurant you have a feeling of being in somebody's home. A warm welcome, a funny waitress and walls with photos of all the best stars adorn the walls. It was fun naming them in between servings. The food and process were both excellent and all four in our party were very satisfied. Where else can you het... More

Magdalena's is west of Rt.19 (approx. 4 miles on north side). A home, converted to the restaurant, has been serving locals for over 13 years. A true "Mom & Pop" establishment, husband seats the guests, cleans up, and works the register, wife does all the cooking. Famous for their "Schnitzels" (my favorite is chicken), they also serve Roast Duck, and... More

This is one of those local finds that is a true gem. It was a little hard to find so I hope my pictures will help you find it. When you enter it feels exactly like walking into someone's home.
