This was a pleasant surprise! We brought our sea trout (cleaned and cut) that we caught that day and they cooked it for us! It was amazing! The sides were great and my son (who does not eat fish and is super picky) loved the chicken!

“Everyone left happy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

We decided to go to the Magnolia for dinner on Friday night. The place was busy but we were greeted by a friendly waitress and shown to a table. After ordering, we waited a while for our food since everything was cooked when ordered.

The meat eaters in the group all ordered chicken. It's southern fried and said to be the best around. It was somewhat difficult to find something for vegetarians but after a while, my friend an I decided on the Mac and Cheese, the grilled vegetables and corn bread. Everyone loved their dinners. The only complaint was the temperature of the dining room!

This is a great little place for home cooking. My only recommendation would be to wear a sweater!!

“Carolina Goodness Hiding Away in Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

The only thing we were sorry about when we ate at Magnolia Grill was that we hadn't discovered it sooner. We were on vacation and just a short distance from this place. We never really noticed it until one evening when I realized there were always a lot of cars on the corner when I'd turn down Ohio Ave. Let me tell you that there is more Carolina goodness here than many Carolina restaurants in the Carolinas. Maybe it's because this little family owned restaurant is run by Carolinians. This is not a fancy restaurant. The prices are reasonable. The food is down home delicious. The servers are friendly and attentive. Everything is made to order so it may take just a tad longer but you won't be sorry. The locals seem to know and appreciate this place but if you are a local who hasn't been there, I heartily recommend. We will definitely go again when we are in the area. Finger licking good and you cannot get any better than this casual southern cuisine.

Best fried chicken in town! We go here on a regular basis and have never had a bad meal. Family owned and operated so it's not open on Sunday or Monday.

“Can't believe the negative reviews...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014 via mobile

I have been eating here since I moved to this area in 1998. Best fried chicken in town!! Worth the extra 10 minutes while it's fried for you. The salads are some if the best in the area. Nuts, cranberries, fresh fruit, cheese and more. Crispy fried green tomatoes and more. The critics who didn't like the vinyl table cloth wasn't supposed to eat it. Did they actually taste the FOOD! Great little neighborhood place. Snowbirds need not apply. The locals know better!!
