I love this place, it's a little dated but the service and food are really wonderful. Fresh seafood, salads, burgers and the amazing key lime pie! The outside deck has a view and it's so relaxing with friends under the umbrellas. The ladies who run this give first class service. A not to miss in Lunenburg.

The lobster tagliatini was excellent. A quaint little place in downtown with reasonable prices. Anywhere in Nova Scotia will have decent seafood, but I thought they did a very good job. Very tasty.

We had dinner with friends here before a concert on a Frida night. It was a few years since our last visit and the experience was as good as ever. The decor is a little funky, service attentive, and food very good. We had fish cakes with a Greek salad (a signature dish) and Moroccan chicken, a spicy dish served... More

While looking for a place for dinner in Lunenburg we saw Magnolia's which while small had several customers on a quiet Monday night. We asked a customer who had just stepped out how was his dinner and he gave us thumbs up. We tried it and one of us had the haddock and the other the grilled scallops. Both excellent... More

Don't come expecting fine dining but you will discover good, tasty, well prepared and presented food with an emphasis on local fish and seafood. Lovely soups, salads and burgers available too. A small but enjoyable selection of wines and local beers. Magnolia's Grill is comfortable and casual, reasonably priced and with good service. It's a busy little place so you... More

Enjoyed a delicious Chicken Tostada with the right mix of hot peppers and a nice mix of onions and green peppers and sour cream. Quite yummy on a house made tostada. Had a cup of coffee much better than expected. Partner had a nice Ceasar salad and a garlicky, but delicious shrimp scampi
