Come here for a varied menu that includes a number of organic dishes and favorable ingredients often direct from local farms. The chicken melt was tasty, as well as the organic fries and Mango Shrimp Salad. Also, consider trying some of their specialty non- alcoholic drinks, which were a nice alternative to regular water. Prices are reasonable and the service... More

I am so disappointed after all the hype my friends gave this restaurant. I seek out the small mom and pop, hole in the wall, true to the ethnic roots food and always have great meals. This overpriced, small portion meal made me sick. Would have been 1000% better off going to Taco Bell. I looked at their menu online... More

The move from York Street has not, IMO, been for the better: The new accommoation is noisy and badly laid out, while prices are high for what the simple menu offered.

This place is so good! Lets just get this out of the way, it is expensive. Visiting this place will not result in a small lunch bill. With that being said, the quality of food is excellent and incomparable to any other local restaurants. I have never ordered anything from here that I did not love.

Went for lunch with a friend, I had the salmon salad and she the chicken wrap food was very good, service was very good also. Unfortunately the only thing that made me not give it 5 stars was because our server smelt of cigarette smoke, he obviously had just nipped out back for one, I found the smell very off... More

This spot, recently relocated to Laurens, is a great spot to have lunch when enjoying Laurens' shopping. The dishes are very creative and a good value. Service is also outstanding. There are a few tables on the side walk and inside.

The group of us went for dinner after riding horses. We were looking for somewhere casual but had good food. Magnolia met the expectation for all of us. It was great food, great service and nice atmosphere. Highly Recommended.

I was taken to the Magnolia by a friend when I happened to be in town because it was one of his favorite places to eat. Well, now it's one of mine in the Aiken area. The staff was very fun and friendly and the food was a touch unique and very good.

Stopped in for lunch on a trip through Aiken. Were seated outdoors after the best they could do indoors was right near the kitchen door. Was a bit chilly but the best alternative. However, the servers seemed to pay much more attention to the indoor dining. We finally got menus and were able to order. The squash soup was pretty... More
