This restaurant is consistently good and always an excellent value. It is one of my favorite places and has never disappointed. As a bonus the cookies are perhaps the best anywhere. I love the Magnolia Cafe!

We stopped in for lunch and sat on the screened in patio. Ample seating but with a cozy feel. The sensational salad was fantastic as was the famous turkey sandwich with sprouts. My son had the chicken enchilada and loved it! Great service, very friendly...More

The food is very good. It gets crowded and there is an outdoor covered patio for those who like the outdoor feel. Get the sensational salad and the burgers are also very good.

Deceptively small from the outside. Sit anywhere, the friendly staff will come to you. The sensation salad with crawfish was delicious, we split that along with a half of a muffuletta. Plenty of food for two!

Cute place with screened porch that was too cold in Jan. But would be great in March. Food was very good and there is live music on Fridays.

This is obviously a local treasure. The wait staff was outgoing and knowledgeable. Everything my party ordered was fresh and delicious. We also went on a Saturday night and got to listen to some local music and overall, it was a great time.

Myself, my husband, sister and her husband ate at the Magnolia Cafe on our recent trip to the Myrtles Plantation. The food was excellent and the staff made sure we had what we needed. If you go there, don’t forget the dessert, they were awesome.

We had hummus and pita bread to start. I ordered the grilled chicken breast with sauteed veggies, which was excellent. My date ordered the french dip sandwich - he said it was very good. Don't expect to be in a rush, service is a bit...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
