Wow ! what an Incredible dining experience . We really liked the Layout and design of the Restaurant , from the view of the Water , misting fans and plants and the Ambience of Magnolias not to mention the overall friendliness of the Staff especially Sam the Manager ( thanks for taking our Picture ) . The food was sooooo good we went 2 nights in a row , the Bone in Ribeye was probably the best Steak I ever had and the trimmings were all delicious and like the Steak PERFECLY cooked. Don't forget dessert , I do not particularly like Creme brulee but it was delicious ! If your in Englewood by the Beach make sure you try this Gem you will not be disappointed ......

Wonderful experience today in our first visit! We felt super welcome from the moment we entered the parking lot with the car ushers, the hostess, Sam (manager) and Todd, our waiter of the night. The service, impeccable. The food, simply delicious, tasty, generous amounts, very well presented. And the venue, very well designed, with all details, a magical view of the bay, an ideal patio for weedings, special anniversaries, or networking events. If you want to celebrate something special for you, your family, your team, and you're in Englewood, the place is "Magnolias on the Bay". We'll come back; thank you.

We went there last night for a birthday celebration dinner and it was the perfect evening! The food was fabulous (the 2 for $65 is an awesome deal), Erin was the greatest server, the atmosphere just can’t be beat…we even had a rainbow! Thanks Sam for helping to make it the perfect evening! We love this place!!

Dinner last night was amazing. Filets we’re cooked perfectly. The clams Provençal was so good, I asked the chef how to make it do I can do it at home. The whole staff was efficient and polite. We hope to come back before we go home from our vacation. I highly recommend them!!!

Totally outstanding. The food was extraordinary and delicious. Not on the menu the stuffed squash flower was unbelievably good. I had the Wagyu beef which melts in your mouth. The beef had a flavor of Truffle and the parsnip puree was excellent. I look forward to enjoying a creative menu which changes over time. Magnolias elevates local dining, The price point is comparable to other fine dining establishments and at $100 including tip per person the restaurant was a value IMHO.

Hands down the best restaurant in Englewood!! I've eaten here for lunch my favorite is the salmon wrap... decided to have my rehearsal dinner here and it could not have been more memorable!! The food ,the ambiance the staff they are all five star! The manager Sam is both professional and personal. He even made sure my favorite salmon wrap was made as an appetizer for everyone, he went above and beyond!!!Whether you are going for a special event a community luncheon or even just to have a wonderful meal this is the place to be!!

Incredible dining, ambiance and attentive staff! Best place around if you are looking for fresh ingredients and eye catching presentations. Try the burrata salad complete with peaches. Food was fabulous from filet to Chilean sea bass to chicken milanese along with beautiful yummy drinks. Please try-you won't be disappointed!

We came in early on Mothers Day for breakfast. They were kind enough to squeeze us in even though we didn’t have a reservation. The service was great… food, drinks, and atmosphere was amazing. I left my credit card and they were kind enough to get it back to me on the day they were closed. You will not be disappointed.

Our party of six braved the weather to eat at Magnolia's. What a gem! The atmosphere is magic, dining aside lemon bay, but under cover of the patio roof. We enjoyed sharing a burrata salad while dipping our wine. The entrees we're fresh and enticing. Black grouper, Kurobuta pork chop, Wagyu beef, and shrimp and grits. All wonderful for the eyes but especially to taste! We had a wonderful evening, with special accolades to our server Erin and the gm, who served as our sommelier, Keith. Thanks for a great night out.

Love this place! Came for Mother’s Day and had their amazing lobster special. The pork chop and grouper didn’t disappoint and even the kids flatbread was a hit. The food is top notch and I see people comment about prices, but you get what you pay for and when the food is this fresh you can’t beat it!

From the cheery gentleman who valeted our car to the hostess and the waitress and the manager and the guy who places the big patio shade umbrellas over the outside tables... wonderful! Chocolate croissants are the BEST we've ever had. And the property is beautiful. Loved all our food. Except the southwestern bowl... which would have been way better on their hashbrowns instead of rice. Love your restaurant 😍

This place is SO cute. The vibe reminds me of a mix between Georgia and Palm Springs. The food is amazing. The only thing I wasn't too thrilled about was the biscuits and gravy. It wasn't hot and the biscuits were pretty hard. But everything else was OUTSTANDING. We will definitely be back.

My Absolutely Favorite Breakfast Restaurant on Manasota Key FL. The full size top notch Entress mean you have the perfect start to your day on the island. Just a short stroll from Englewood Beach or the complementary shuttle Golf Carts ride drops you under the covered patio. A menu that has selections to please everyone makes sure my day is off to a great start.I have never been there for lunch or dinner,but with the attention Magnolias puts into breakfast, I’m sure it will be a delight as well.

5 stars for the ambience and gorgeous view of Lemon Bay! Mostly outdoor seating at this cozy restaurant. Upon arriving we were brought glasses of lukewarm tap water with no ice, which was puzzling at best. Pricey sandwiches on a limited menu, but again the view is gorgeous, especially at night.
