I had the fresh-off-the-boat haddock nearly every night of our visit because I couldn't get enough. Served with fresh chutney. I crave that meal every day since we've been home!

We had dinner there on two consecutive nights - both times the food and service were great. Their patio is very pleasant. The atmosphere was quieter, which is what we were looking for

Reservations recommended. This place is quiet small with both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu is written on the wall, with no descriptions, hence the score of 4. However, the food is very good and well worth it. I had the haddock with a side...More

Our foursome had dinner one night and afternoon drinks the following afternoon at Magnolia. It is a tiny, friendly place run by efficient ladies who know how to cook! I strongly recommend any fresh seafood there - and don't miss the fresh lemonade.
