After enjoying a nice bottle of wine at Two Old Hags wine shop on Main St. in Leesburg, a group of us went to Magnolia's a block away on Magnolia for some dinner. As always, we got a plate of raw oysters that were big,...More

It's not easy to locate, but once you find it, it is worth it...We loved the raw oysters. The jalapeno crab bites are delicious. It is a lovable dive.

We had a great dinner and the atmosphere was casual and relaxed. The raw oysters were great, as was the catfish dinner.

What a bargain and great fresh oysters. Looks like a biker bar from outside but go in and enjoy the oysters.

From the outside, the place doesn't look like much. In fact, you would think it is primarily a bar. Likewise, the inside is rustic with a wood bar and a separate dining area with wooden tables. The place can best be described as a throw-back...More

We went there because our friend wanted raw oysters. My wife had the fried oysters and I had the buttermilk dipped shrimp. WOW cooked just right. The hushpuppies were the best I've ever had. Asked the cook what the secret was - sweet onions.

The Mag is a Leesburg, Florida locals bar founded in 1954. Boasting a reputation catering to crowds ranging from rowdy bikers to laid back land lubbers, If these walls could talk, the foul mouthed slurs would be considered nothing short of piracy!!! Now-a-days we spend our time relaxing in the Florida Sun, as we enjoy an Ice Cold Beer and the Freshest Seafood Around. Don't be fooled by our hit or miss tropical atmosphere, our Dive Bar Attitude is what makes the magic happen. Being off the beaten path and far, far away from any hint of "corporate" is what keeps our guests coming back for more!! Always Fresh and Sometimes Friendly, See You at The Mag!!!
