I'm from San Diego and been here several times when visiting friends in Girard. I love the lobster bisque and the Magnolia's salad. We are always a party of 5 or 6 and everyone has always raved about the food.

We have never been disappointed at Magnolias....Last week, "Eggs Benedict" with "American Fries/Spinach Omelet"...today, a huge, beautifully browned "Pancake" with "Syrup & fresh Strawberries/Vegetable Omelet with American Fries"....constant refills of "Coffee".....Smuckers jelly & preserves...there is not a restaurant in our area that compares......

We make it a habit of eating here at least once a week. Every item on the menu is wonderful and the homemade desserts are absolutely incredible. Definitely worth the trip to Carlinville to try it out!

This place had a wonderful chicken salad sandwich with a nacho cheese soup. The desert was huge. It is definitely a place I will go back on future visits.

I have been to Magnolias twice and both times I've gotten an entree awash in melted cheese. The first time was chicken, the last time was mushroom ravioli. My companion had a pork chop and asparagus which looked and tasted better than my choice. The...More

We have been to Magnolias three times and have yet to have either bad service or tasteless food. I the setting and love the idea of having breakfast/lunch in a former church. Service is quick, the food is awesome and taste great.
