it is worth the wait.. simply put, its the best in the city for breakfast...some complain about the wait, but its part of the experience...i KNOW i will wait...and i KNOW the food will be well worth the wait...i use the time to conversate with family and friends...it is what breakfast dining SHOULD BE.
San Antonio Best Pancakes. They have the best Pancakes! I love how the syrup can come warm and the service is good
Don't order the sausage!.
Ate breakfast here a few days ago and knew the sausage tasted funny so I stopped eating...that evening I became very ill with food poisoning. Three days later I'm still sick...not good for a full-time student and employee!
Might be a random incident, but I won't go back and would suggest NOT to order the sausage.
Great Food Bad Service. We waited around an hour for a table which was fine since we had heard about the great food. What we did not expect was the rude service. We were a party of ten and 3 of our guests were running late (10 minutes) and we were rudely told that they could not seat us. .When we asked about the policy we were told by one of the hostesses that the waitresses could make more money when tables were full vs empty. This of course is mostly true but were words that the hostess could have kept to herself. She was very rude and there was no reason we could have not been seated instead of standing around. When our guests arrived shortly after they had given our table away. If it were not because we were so hungry we would have all left. We waited another 10 minutes and finally got a table. I could not believe the bad service and the way the hostesses handled the situation. They could have done a way better job and had a better attitude since after all it is their customers giving them business and good service should be the priority.
Great breakfast - Best pancakes I've ever had. My husband and I went here a few weeks ago and the food was outstanding. Our waiter was funny and personable, and we had a wonderful breakfast. We did have to wait about 30 minutes to sit down, but it was worth it. We will go back. We ordered the open-faced Denver omelet, and we upgraded the side of pancakes to a full order of the Bananas Foster pancakes - FANTASTIC!
Breakfast this morning. I had wheat pan cake with syrup and my wife ordered the omelette with spinach and mushrooms..... We had coffee to drink.... Pan cakes were fine but the syrup was like water. The omelette was good. She loved the raisin bread..... Coffee ok ....
Closed at 2??? Right!!. False advertisment!!! They say they close at 2 but my husband an I got there at 1:45 and were turned away because they stop taking names at about 1?? So what's the point in closing at 2? They ate still open for buisness ??? If that's the case they should close at 12:00 to get out of there at 2 pluse their attitude was like too bad we can't seat you and they were so rude about it that's also because we called ahead and were told as long ad we got there before 2 it wouldn't be a problem liars!!!
Yummy food and Excellent Service. Went here for Sunday morning breakfast when visiting San Antonio. Had to wait 20-30 minutes but it was worth it! Our server (Kelly) was amazing! And the food was so delicious!
Decently priced brunch fare; disappointing food.
I've probably had brunch at 50 different restaurants in various cities over the past 10 years, and Magnolia Haus was one of the worst in terms of food quality. I should start with the positives:
1. reasonable prices ($6 to 9)
2. wide variety / unique dishes
3. large portions
4. delicious coffee
And I won't fault them for the slow service, since this is father's day and the 1+ hour wait could be expected -- but what were we waiting for?
The corned beef hash I had came bright pink, was chopped smaller than sausage innards, was over-salted yet under-seasoned (somehow this is true), and came with too few potatoes. My wife's biscuits and gravy are outdone by most any country restaurant in the area and they were definitely over-peppered, even though I love pepper and spice) Another at our table was disappointed with the pecan waffle, though the father did enjoy the German apple pancake (not going to try to spell the thing) -- so that is probably your best bet for brunch, if you don't mind a ton of empty calories.
It's definitely a better choice than Denny's or IHOP, but worse than any decent Mexican place, hotel brunch, country restaurant and Le Peep.
Fan-nee-koo-ken. Try the fan-ee-koo-ken pancake. It's amazing! I've also had the peach-pecan waffle (very good), pancakes with granola (my significant other's favorite), the pecan pancakes (not overladen with nuts and still very fluffy) and the hashbrowns are far-beyond the normal frozen mush with no flavor that is de rigeur at every other breakfast joint in town. I bring my visitors and friends to Magnolia whenever possible and we all live all the way across town! My best advice is to bring a group, come early, and try to get everyone to order something different so that you can get a taste of as much as possible! This place is fabulous!
