Exactly what Manasota Key needed!! Outdoor dining in a garden setting with a water view! Fabulous spot for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner...have been there numerous times since they opened and NEVER disappointed. I manage 5 star vacation rental properties on the Key and this gem is now on my list of recommendations to all of our guests!

Wonderful ambiance, All outdoor dining. The food was gourmet. Our grouper was served with a wonderful sauce. The best part of our evening was an amazing white cake with marscpone icing. There was a berry sauce in the layers and on the plate. Delicious!!!

I LOVED it. The atmosphere was great, the food was amazing. There is no indoor seating, so if it's a but chilly, take a jacket. I did not however like the coffee. I can't put my finger on what I didn't like about it. But overall it was great!

This was our second visit and enjoyed it just as much as the first, if not more. Great service with friendly staff. I had the Cuban sandwich which was very tasty and would order again. Our niece had a very nice salad with large shrimp with she said was very good. Partner had the short rib sandwich (for the second time). He lived it just as much as the first time. Great outside views. Very cozy.. Looking forward to going again. Maybe by boat?

We went to magnolias for breakfast this morning. The atmosphere was so fun and trendy. I had an iced coffee, it was amazing!! My fiancé had the breakfast burrito with potatoes, he loved it!! I went with a build your own breakfast sandwich which was one of the best breakfast sandwiches I have ever had. You can tell everything is made from scratch. It was also a super fun place to bring our 2 year old. He loved walking down to look at the bay!! We will definitely be back for more!!

Magnolias was amazing; a truly elevated dining experience you cannot really find elsewhere in the area. You can tell they care about the finer details and quality of food just by the plate presentation of each dish. We sat at the bar inside and ate dinner for New Years eve and neither of us had one complaint about the service or our meals. We both ordered the Wagyu filet-medium rare, which was cooked to perfection. The bacon appetizer and the shishito pepper appetizer were perfect for sharing. Our bartender made a top notch smoked bacon old fashioned as well!I will definitely be coming back to try out their lunch and breakfast services soon!

Had dinner there tonight for the first time. We have lived in Englewood for 18 years and this was the best meal we have had in the area bar none. We had the octopus and bacon for appetizer, and the sea bass and cobia for main course. The wine selection was above average and the liquor selection was as well. No draft beer and the bottle/can options were boring macro domestics. We will absolutely be back many times.

Love this place on canopy road right up from Englewood beach. The restaurant has a great view that faces the bay. The service was attentive and kept our water glasses filled. The food was great prices were reasonable. I had the sea bass and my wife had the Acorn squash dish. The drink were well made and the wine list reasonable. We had desert and that was also well prepared. My wife is vegetarian and we both are gluten-free. The menu had plenty of options for both. We will go back and can recommend this place. The parking is sparse but don’t let that keep you from visiting this place as one of the better places in the area.

Went here with my family, the best seafood available here at Manasota Key! Service is great, very warm atmosphere, and every dish is to die for. It’s a league above, a definite dining destination. The price is worth it!

Oh my gosh this is our new favourite restaurant. It was only open a week before I left town to go to London. We had breakfast there one morning after yoga on the beach which was lovely, plus the menu was very innovated and tasty. We loved it so much we went back for dinner later in the week. When I get back from London, we are going to take the boat there as they have 4 or 5 slips on the bay. They have lovely high top tables with very elegant fire pits in them, if you go at sunset the sky will be all lovely and pink. The food is phenomenal, the chef is clearly not afraid to try new menu items. Our waiter was so excited to be working there and his passion for describing the food and stories of the restaurant was contagious. He was really, really brilliant, a credit to the establishment, I wish we had his name, but he is about 30 with brown hair and a beard if that helps. We wanted to thank him for his patience with our slightly inebriated, giggly state, bless him he was a star.

Met a friend for lunch on Thursday as we had been anticipating the opening. We were both happy with our meals. I had the short rib panini and it was delicious! My friend enjoyed a large chicken salad sandwich as well. Pomegranate Margarita was quite tasty 😋 We will be visiting again soon.
