The menu has a great variety of food. I had the shrimp poboy with fries. The poboy was good and a good size. The fries were good with a huge portion. Service was good even though the restaurant was almost full for lunch.

Club sandwiches to Ultimate Nachos everything you could possibly want and with all that diversity everything tasted damn good.! No air condition however plenty of box fans and others of the like.

Visited this restaurant for lunch, while traveling in the area. Eclectic menu covering various seafood & meat dishes, along with a variety of vegetable offerings. Food was reasonably priced and the service was good. I would dine there again if in the area.

We ordered fries and pie because who does that? Apparently we do and it was so good! Staff was so nice and friendly and we would definitely stop by for more fries and pie!

Who visits St. Francisville and doesn't go to Magnolia. This is one of the best places to eat. When it get cool, the best place to sit is on the patio for the live music.

Stay away from overpriced plantation restaurants and eat here! The food is delicious: bread pudding, as well as spinach and artichoke dip, are must-haves, and the atmosphere is authentic: you can sit inside, out on the enclosed porch, or snuggle into the bar. My husband...More

I had the crawfish dip (warm and delicious) and the BLT magnolia style. The BLT had avocado and sprouts. It was fresh and absolutely terrific. Service was excellent. I wish I had gotten the young man's name but all staff seemed to be quick and...More

We dine there monthly and I've never seen a dog in the restaurant nor would I personally care to eat with dogs present. I understand there are people who enjoy the company of their pets and that's fine. Perhaps arrangements... More
