We've dined in really good restaurants on the west coast from St. Pete's to Naples. If I could get you to try just one, Magnolias is the one.We normally take suggestions from the server. Well, everything that Destiny recommended was spot on.Fresh fish prepared perfection.It's worth six stars.

This place is wonderful! We celebrated my 31st birthday here last night. The food was incredible (as always) the service was 10 stars. Daniel, our server knew every answer to all our questions especially, about the wines. He was attentive, knowledgeable, very nice and did not rush us. The dessert, might’ve been my favorite part of the meal. Blackberry and peach cobbler, DELICIOUS! Beautiful ambiance and even better food. Thank you, Magnolias.

Magnolias is a cant miss spot. Food is outstanding service is perfect. You are seated outside in a covered area with fans and misting that make it incredibly comfortable even in the summer heat. Perfect for date night, special event or just because. Most recent night was once again amazing, our group had scallops, salmon, sushi, short ribs and steaks, it was amazing as always.

We absolutely love coming here! Everything about Magnolias is fantastic! The staff is polite, knowledgeable, on point and friendly! The food never disappoints. We like going on Sundays for happy hour at the Bar and then we wander down to the Bay to sit and enjoy the water and Nature.

Magnolias on the Bay is an excellent dining experience! The meal was started with a succulent pork belly marinated in thyme brown butter. This was followed by a moist and flaky Chilean sea bass filet. The meal was finished with a warm and sweet blonde brownie topped with ice cream. Try to get seated outdoors if you can; you can enjoy a beautiful view of the water as you dine!

Probably the best food in the area. It is a bit expensive but I believe it is worth it. This is a good example of you getting what you pay for.

By far the best food available in the area in my opinion. Our food was extremely impressive and while the food was expensive it felt like incredible value compared to other restaurants on the key due simply to the magnitude of the quality. An incredible experience that deserves your attention.

Scallops were out of this world with risotto and brocolini! Great cocktails, too. Looks small from the road but a surprise awaits. And service was amazing, too!

Went there on Tuesday night and the 4 of us had great time. Always surprising how the front page of a book does not represent what's inside on SWFL. Valet parking, Nice open kitchen, great ambiance with a nice view on the bay, Sushis are one of the best I've eat, Cocktails done perfectly, fresh food, generous plates, great service... even the bathroom were deep cleaned. Great discovery! We will return for sure and thanks Magnolia for offering such a great experience.

Had dinner and drinks last night at this beautiful restaurant. Free valet parking which makes for the whole experience of getting there and not having to look for a parking space very enjoyable. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and extremely nice and attentive. The manager was interactive with the guests and very funny. Food came out in a timely manner and was absolutely delicious. Every plate was presented stunningly. And you of course can’t beat the atmosphere. Will absolutely be back.

Last night, I met up with friends for a "Happy Birthday and Welcome to Florida Dinner." The food and atmosphere was wonderful and definately deserving a 5-STAR rating. Magnolias on the Bay is now on my "A" list for personal enjoyment and entertaining clients.

A wonderful dining experience. Magnolias can best be described as casual upscale with a well curated menu. The food was excellent and the service prompt and friendly. The cost of the menu items is well reflected in the quality and plating of the food. A great place for larger parties, and the view of the intercoastal is stunning. A true Florida gem.

We dined there this evening. Our waiter was Daniel, charming, attentive and added to the experience. Food and atmosphere was outstanding.
We enjoyed not only the food, the atmosphere, and the wait staff especially, Daniel, thank you for adding enjoyment to our evening of two old friends saying good bye to each other . Thank you, you made our special evening even more special.
