Great food, great service and a fun atmosphere. The pizza is always a great go to menu item. Also the cookies are amazing for dessert

Sit out on the huge screened porch. Have the soup especially the crawfish chowder. Eat a fried shrimp po boy and enjoy the relaxed casual vibe. Old and young alike we're pleased.

We had high hopes for lunch at Magnolia Cafe. Unfortunately, we had to listen to a loud saw cutting through wood inside the restaurant. I ordered the shrimp salad, which would've been great if I'd requested the dressing on the side. My 15 year old daughter couldn't stop talking about how wonderful her sandwich was though! I think she ordered... More

The location is not on the main road (Hwy 61), but located in the small town and opened in 1982. The atmosphere is great and the food is good. They usually have a band on Friday and Saturday night. I sat in the bar area this time for a few hours and everyone seems to know each other.

Over the years I have eaten here each time in town. Never once was I unhappy or given bad service. This place was great and the live music a treat on a Saturday night. Lots of families were there and kids danced along with the music much as I remember from my youth at other places in other towns now... More

If you are ever in this area please try this cafe. We have been going here for many years and have never been disappointed with service or the food.

As we wandered through shops in town, we asked for dinner recommendations. Everyone told us that the Magnolia had great food and never disappoints. We took their advice and dinner was very good. (The corn and crab chowder was wonderful!) The casual decor seems to fit well in a small southern town. The prices were reasonable. Service was great. I'd... More

Were told about it at the in town Visitors Center. Had our dog with us so asked to eat outside: "no problem". Shared the BLT...excellent, large and had fresh avocado slices. Fries were OK. Attentive service. Would try again if in the area.

Ate Crawfish Chowder and a half sandwich - very good. Then tried the Blueberry Bread Pudding and a cup of decaf - super good!

It's been about a year since we have been through Saint Francisville, so we decided to try the Magnolia again. And again it was great! We had the nachos, the shrimp poboy, and the Chicken Magnolia. All were great. Service was quick and the waitress was attentive. Hope its not a year before we can go back !

Thank Philpot122
