“Perfect place for a casual lunch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The menu is varied, the portion sizes just right and the food is very fresh and tastes delicious! It's nice to sit outside and enjoy the breeze or inside by the fire on a cold day. Food is ordered at the counter and brought to your table. They also serve breakfast (which I haven't tried). Service is quick and friendly. This local visits it often!

“Good choices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

Magnolia is a small restaurant right on Highway 4 as you enter Murphys from downhill.
Parking is a tad awkward, but thee is usually enough space.
Inside it is a walk-up order place, but the food is what it is about. The chef is excellent, putting a different flavor to most dishes, provided pleasant surprises.
I have eaten their twice in recent weeks. For breakfast I had a fritatta which was excellent, and a generous portion. I go for the plainer dishes so it was basically like a quische and was srved with salad or fruit on the side.
For lunch I ordered a tostado, which the custom made for me to include beef. It was very good, the beef of good quality and the tortilla turned out to be almost like fried corn bread or Indian bread, an unexpected treat..
I tend to go for plain foods but my daughter who is more adventerous likes the wide range of custom lunches and breakfasts.
Prices are about average for Murphys, but the food is a cut above the competition.
The dining area offer inside (with fireplace) or outside with umbrellas. Pleasant place.

“Cute Little Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

We went there for lunch had the shrimp melt and carmelized onion steak standwich. Both were verry good, the salad was really refreshing. Mostly it was the staff the people were friendly. A young man busing tables stopped what he was doing to help an elderly lady to her car parked a bit of distance, she was so glad. There apparently was problem with our order my sandwich went to another table not really a big deal but they apologized and brought us a dessert. The Lemon/strawberry dessert was really good. Will go back and recommend it to friends, clean nice place.
