If you want more than fish tacos, fried shrimp and flip flops go here. A really beautiful setting on the bay with food that’s definitely a notch up. We had great crab cakes and sushi. Atmosphere felt like an upscale resort and the staff were very friendly and professional

We absolutely LOVE Magnolias on the Bay. Everything about it from the minute we walk in the door is amazing . The manager, Keith, is the best in the business. He always comes to the table to say hello. Heather, usually helps us as our server and she’s as good as it gets!! Our last trip there we had a new server, Daniel. He was also fabulous. He paid attention to every detail and was just a wonderful addition to this gem of a restaurant. The food is off the charts. Clearly very talented chef in the kitchen. We hope this restaurant is around for a very long time!!

Making money through Forex/Binary Trade is a prominent opportunity to make a beneficial standard living, I realized that through my investment with MR KILLIAN BAYER a very skilled Forex broker/Trader, I wouldn't have completed my project which I started since the beginning of the year. Traded $500 on MR KILLIAN BAYER platform and was credited $6,900 after 7 days Trade. I'm the Happiest man on earth right now because l completed my house project, Never before have I seen a Forex broker so dedicated, hard-working, and yet still tenacious at the same time. You’re an inspiration to all of us! May Almighty God bless you and your family. Contact him now;

Cute little gem on the beach with great atmosphere. We were in the mood for sushi and decided to give it a try. Our server Daniel was great, he was knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. They politely check on you and your meal without obnoxiously hanging over you. Will defiantly be going back!!

We have been wanting to try Magnolias for awhile now. The Passion Margarita was great. The bread and butter was really good. We split the house salad and loved all the specialty items added to the salad as far as fruit and candied nuts. I tried two different sushi rolls because I couldn’t make up my mind. They were some of the best I’ve had around southwest Florida. My wife had the daily special which was Mahi and it was amazing. If going right around sunset (or after) get reservations in the covered area. We sat out in the open and the nosesums started biting. Luckily our waitress had spray for us which solved the problem or come prepared with your own. It’s the ocean people it happens all around here. Management was very kind add stopped by to introduce himself we had a very nice conversation. Our waitress and trainee (I’m assuming) were on point with everything!! We will be back!

UPDATE!! 9/24/22THE BEST SUSHI I HAVE EVER HAD! That kitchen staff is truly amazing. The best. You all put together some of the best quality food I have ever tasted. Thank you!We had one of the most enjoyable dining experiences ever! This place is top notch for sure. Service, food, ambiance…it has it ALL.Jen, the hostess/manager was an absolute gem! She immediately made us feel right at home upon entering the building. Super personality and very accommodating. We got a seat around one of their awesome fire pits. She lit our fire and handed us over to Martin, our awesome server. There were four of us and we decided to order a few things and split everything. We all started with drinks. 3 of us opted for the passion fruit hibiscus margarita. The other got the old fashioned. The margaritas were in the top 3 margaritas I’ve ever tasted. So amazing I had to “taste” 3 of them! They also came with an edible hibiscus flower as a garnish. It tasted like a fruit roll-up!For food we ordered a large pizza with capicola and banana peppers, a burrata beet salad, a roasted butternut and bacon salad with grilled chicken, a small quinoa salad, and a side of fries. The pizza was out of this world and I was SO THRILLED about the capicola as an option! Martin was a true pleasure and we really enjoyed our time with him! Thank you Martin! We loved you! Jen, you’re AMAZING! To the kitchen, THANK YOU FOR SOME OF THE BEST TASTING FOOD AROUND! Can’t wait to return!

Magnolias as it was prior to have sushi was new caliber of food to the area of upscale menu and service. recently adding sushi upped the level and went above and beyond acquiring ingredients you would find at other sushi restaurants. with the backing of Chef Noah, they have broken the threshold of bringing great sushi to the area!

Super cute and friendly place! Valet parking provided or park yourself. Phenomenal back yard garden dining with big fans moving the air and making it bearable! From the hostess to the restaurant manager (?) Everyone made us feel welcome! In this time of tanking Covid customer service this was such a breath of fresh air! Food was exceptional - I had the wagyu skewers (do try them!!), Short ribs, salad... The only one I wasn't really fond of was the wild mushroom dish...it was 100%shitake and some wilted greens...I did finish the grits cake in the middle! I would recommend highly you try it! Loved it!

It is a bit set back from the road. We were a group of 6 and we sat outside. View to the bay was great. Sat around a fire pit. Lots of fans it was wonderful. Food was great. I had chicken salad sandwich that was delicious and BIG. THE VIEWS, DRINKS AND FOOD WILL BRING ME BACK.

Of all the places in the Englewood area to do brunch this is the best. They do both lunch and breakfast equally well, which isn’t always the case at other establishments. On a whim, I thought I’d try their pizza which is the best I’ve had in the area. I ordered the sun dried tomato pesto sauce with onion and cappicola. My girlfriends got the breakfast burrito and the monte cristo sandwich which were both very good. But what separates this place from many others are they specially coffee drinks, mimosas, and cocktails. Grab a bite to eat there before you hit the beach, but make sure you hydrate!

We came twice for dinner and once for breakfast during our vacation. It was such a nice place! The food was excellent, service great, and the atmosphere was so welcoming. If we’re ever in that part of Florida again, I will definitely be back at Magnolia’s on the Bay!
