Good food, great views, super staff, the whole package. Get the fresh seafood and relax and enjoy. In the heart of Lunenberg near the waterfront and convenient to everything.

Sea scallops were fabulous! The greek salad on the side was THE best I have ever had, with just the right amount of fresh dressing. Well done!

We have eaten at Magnolia's twice in the last year, most recently late July '15. It is a most reliable quality restaurant for reasonably priced gourmet food. Very good effort to satisfy unique requests (special cocktail, for example).

My friend had been to Magnolia's before, but this was my first time. We ordered the Lobster Linguini and were overwhelmed with the amount of lobster this dish contained. It was a signature dish that definitely lived up to its reputation. Fresh and fabulous! We had decided to split an order since it was more of a late lunch we... More

Lovely people and fantastic food. We were looking for fresh seafood that wasn't deep fried and we found a gem. It was a healthy portion of haddock and house made Caesar salad. Delicious! My bf had the scallops which were to die for. A top recommendation!

Magnolia's is a Canadian restaurant with a Southern atmosphere. Our innkeeper told us to make reservations, because it's a popular place. When we arrived, there was a table set aside just for us. My husband had the pan seared scallops and he said that they tested fresh and were delicious. I had the shrimp scampi. It didn't come in drawn... More

Nova Scotia has great seafood but hubby and I felt like we were seeing the same menu over and over again. Magnolia offered some great innovations. We had the wonderful roasted beet salad - he had fish cakes with it which were really delicious and different. For apps he had the scallops and I had shrimp. The service was wonderful... More

We chose this restaurant based on a referral and reviews we have read. We had a reservation for 5 for lunch and we were seated in a crowded booth, although we realized after that there was a larger space available which would have been more comfortable. First we ordered drinks and the Caesar had to be sent back as it... More

Lunenburg actually had quite a few promising restaurants to try, but Magnolia Grill had a TV segment from You Gotta eat Here and so we did. the pan seared scallops were beautifully done, moist and large and quite a few on the plate. The fish cakes and salad (house speciality( were tasty) an the complimentary bread was warm and crusty.... More
