Nice blend of casual atmosphere and extensive menu, including some upscale selections. Had dinner with my wife and another couple, and we all enjoyed our selections. My wife had the Shrimp Alfredo, I had the Three Bacon Lobster Risotto, both were excellent, with generous portions of shrimp and lobster meat. The only thing holding me from giving 5 stars was...

Got the special-grilled chicken and shrimp with stuffed pasta. The shrimp was good but the chicken was over cooked. The waiter was not really on his game.

We've visited Cafe Magnolia on many occasions and have always found the food and service to be good. While it's not fancy, Cafe Magnolia is a great week night or weekend drop in. We live that it is BYOB. Would highly recommend!

It's rare I find a distinctive menu where I like everything. It was honestly hard to choose. This is a solo house away from retail clutter--so-so outside, quaint and warm inside, with good service and BYOB that they point out in advance to better facilitate you. They changed the music for us to a classic band mix our young and... More

Took the family on my sons suggestion one of his friends from college parents took them there. I had the lasagna it was quite large and very good. I dont usually order pasta out because I am pretty particular about the sauce but we had the calamari as an appetizer and the sauce came with it. They have a good... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is consistently very good and reasonably priced. It's BYOB, which means you get to have your favorite libation at a great price! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Every time my husband and I visit PA we make it a priority to go to Cafe Magnolia. We love Jess' Favorite Salad, which says a lot considering my husband s go to is not a salad.

My wife and I and two other couples had dinner at Cafe Magnolia recently. All of us had different entres and everyone was impressed with the quality of the food. The prices are a little high but the quality of the food is worth it. It's a BYOB restaurant and they serve ice tea as well. It's cozy there and... More

After the movies, about 8 ladies reserved a table at Cafe Magnolia's. We were pleased with the service, various salads, and one appetizer. Portions were ample with several of us taking home a portion. My favorite is always the Coconut crusted chicken with strawberries (Jess' favorite). Others enjoyed the steak salad as well. We brought our own bottles of wine.... More

I cannot save enough about this restaurant. Their waitstaff is always pleasant and knowledgeable about what is on the menu. Their food is superb! They have some of the best risotto I ever ate. It is also a BYOB. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch or for dinner. I have never had a bad meal.
