When I worked nearby the Magnolia, we'd end up there once every few months or so. The food is always really good, and you feel good for having eaten it. Everything is as local as it can get, and natural and tasty. That said, you're paying a premium for the privilege. It was too expensive to visit frequently, but it... More

First trip to Aiken, and happened to find this little gem off the downtown path. Nice menu choices, loved the chicken salad. It's not often you run across Chocolate Zucchini cake and I got a piece to go. Needless to say, it didn't make it out of the downtown area. I dined alone, but I think I was there an... More

I have a LOT of dietary restrictions, but I can always find something tasty and healthy to eat at Magnolia. Tommy, the owner/chef, is always accommodating. And when I'm in a rush (which is too often), the servers manage to get me in and out quickly without feeling rushed. This is a definite favorite of mine, and I can highly... More

Overpriced and even an extra charge for paying with a credit card. Today it was really noisy, so conversation was difficult. Shrimp on salad with fruit was very good but small (approx.$13.95+tax). Salads come without any sort of bread or crackers.

Cannot remember the last time we were here but while running errands, decided to meet here for lunch--it was a good decision. My wife had a wrap and I had the Reuben sandwich---both were great along with the flavored lemonade. We sat outside and enjoyed the day along with Lee's excellent service.

Great little bistro nestled in the downtown area. Never disappointed with the food or service. Open for dinner on Thur, Fri nights?

Stop for lunch with my wife at high lunch time. Parking is difficult so park on Park Ave only a few 100 feet away. The waitress was very attention and friendly. They have a nice selection of beers and refreshments. They have mostly a 'Chic' Menu, but I found the food to be excellent. It's a little crowded but they... More

The specials always include a vegan option. Not many have those on Aiken. I know what I am eating is healthy. The staff is always friendly.
