Our apps came out before our drinks, we didn’t get any bread, my steak didn’t have the onions I ordered, they didn’t have the aviation drink I wanted, and when they brought out dessert we had to wait 15 minutes for our spoons. The servers are under 21 so they can’t make drink recommendations. Didn’t feel like anything close to a fine dining experience. I will say the food was good, steak was too Smokey though. Very disappointed!

Not the quality that it use to be but friendly staff and good menu choices. The prices seemed high for the quantity, quality and presentation of the food.

Food was fabulous. Waitress very cute and knowledgeable. We ate outside, you could lighten up the inside a bit.

After making our online reservation using OpenTable for 4 for Sun 19 Sep at 5pm, it became necessary to increase our reservation party size from 4 to 5. The online OpenTable feature was USELESS in my attempt todo this.

The "modify" section let me type in 5 instead of 4, but there was no SAVE feature.

Instead, it asked me to select a table. When I clicked on that it showed me available time for tables on Mon, Tue, Wed etc.

After getting nowhere on 2 different days, we called Magnolia directly, spoke to a live person who was happy to adjust our party from 4 to 5. He was also able to accommodate that our table NOT be upstairs.

We had company from Maine, they wanted to take us to dinner. We decided on Magnolias, and we were very happy with our decision! My salmon melted in my mouth, and the fingerlings were perfect! We will be back, and have decided to get a gift certificate to give as a Christmas present.

The service, food and ambiance were great. Only issue… there were too many good looking entrees which made picking only one quite challenging! We’ll be back soon to try more :)

Food, ambiance, and service were all exemplary! Bill did a wonderful job, from recommending a wine, to helping us choose dessert. I got the gaucho ribeye, and it was simply amazing! Magnolias is our favorite restaurant for an occasion and for a Tuesday.

This is my fourth visit to Magnolias on the Mill. Our small group opted for brunch; one had lunch. All of us enjoyed the first class meals. I don't like potatoes, but I ate every single one of the roasted potatoes on my plate.

I experienced outdoor. Food is excellent. The chocolate fudge cookie I had is excellent. Mussels are excellent. The crab cake isn’t that great but it is just fine.

Overall experience is good.

Great place to celebrate my 50th birthday! Cozy table and delicious food and drink from appetizer to dessert! Special touches like a printed menu with Happy Birthday and a candle with my dessert! Food was fresh and unique flavors. Everything memorable and perfect!

Everything was phenomenal from start to finish! From the host/server staff, to the drinks/food and ambiance/decor, I could not recommend this restaurant more highly as a dinner date spot. We ordered the Pineapple Mule, Hella Pain Yo Margarita, Bento Box appetizer, Salmon Oscar, & Prime Rib Special…all were outstanding! My wife and I will definitely be returning!

Nice ambience. Set in an historic mill, the dining area was spacious. Attentive waitstaff. Overall, the food was fun. Great French fries. I would not recommend the oyster poboy but everyone else in our group thought the food was fine.
