First time for dinner at Magnolias last night and we were pleasantly surprised. Well prepared food, great fish, the prime rib was a little on the rare side but okayand a very large and delicious bourbon pecan pie. Only complaint was the waiter who obviously rushed us through the meal. Immediately came to table for our order then came back 2 other times within five minutes (it was only7:30pm). The place was not very crowded our entrees were out in about 10 minutes. Wondering if this is not the place to go if you want to linger?
I haven't been to magnolia's in years. I used to go there strictly for their oysters, but now Asheville has other options in that arena. Now for some reason it kinda gives me the heebie-jeebies. Sounds like your waiter used to work at a place like olive garden (turn and burn style dining).
