everything is great!!!!!!!! worth the wait!!!!


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 guest...

Used to be good, but won't accommodate handicapped people 2/10/2012

I have been visiting this place for the past five years, and as long as you are not with a handicapped individual it is fine. However, my last visit was awful. I will not plan to return for a very long time. I went on Friday mid-morning because I knew it could be a bit crowded on the weekend, and we wanted to stay out of the rush while were celebrating my wife's birthday with my mother-in-law. Her mother is severely handicapped and has extreme trouble walking even with her cane--they refused to let us have a table until she was physically inside the door of the establishment even though she was parked in the hadnicapped spot right in front of the door and clearly doing her best to get inside. We needed the allowance to make sure she would be able to sit at the table and get the chair ready for her to collapse into. However, management was completely uncourteous despite seeing her doing her best to get into the establishment. They do not make accommodations for handicapped people and are very unapologetic about it. Shame on the Magnolia House and its management from hell. The only redeeming factor was a fairly courteous waitress and good coffee. Moral of the story: If you are able bodied, then go to this place; if you have a handicap, don't bother because you will not be welcomed. It was humiliating that they watched her struggle to get into the restaurant and refused to get menus ready until she ""cleared the threshold."" more

Great pancakes 9/18/2011

I could do without the long wait but I love the pancakes so much I do it anyway. I also like the hash browns. The omelets are little small. Recommended. more

Just don't like it!!! 1/5/2011

Not sure what all the rave is about...just don't like the place. I've been dragged there a couple of times by those who love it. I had cornbeef was tough! How can hash be tough? My daughter found a scrub bristle in her least they clean...cute decorations, but NOT worth the long wait and terrible wait staff who are harried and too busy to refill or attend to the tables they have. Hate that they won't seat you til everyone is there or take reservations... more


Took my Dad to breakfast here for the first time. The menu looked great, as did the wall of awards in the lobby. We were put in a small room in the back where about 12 other people were seated. The noise volume made conversation nil. The accostics are horrible! more


everything is great!!!!!!!! worth the wait!!!! more

What good food? 10/11/2010

It was gross. No bugs but the taste alone was awful. Hashbrowns tasted like they had been sitting on the griddle since the day before. Eggs were nothing spectacular neither were the pancakes! What a dissapointment. Never coming back. The 1 star is a requirement folks and is in no way an endorsement. more

Thank Goodness for Reviews! 7/15/2010

I was thinking about taking the family to breakfast at Magnolia Haus and I'm SO glad I read the previous reviewers comments about the bugs and poor service. If the bug was true, that's enough to never go to this place but I won't go here now for the mere fact the service was horrible! I can just as easily find a top notch place to eat where staff know how to treat their customers. Needless to say, I'll NOT BE GOING TO MAGNOLIAS, now or ever. GROSS. more


To Sum it up, the staff is hostile, there was a cockroach in my food, and the Owner is just as hostile and uncaring. Details below of our horrible experience: Pros: The food would have been good without the Critters in it! Cons: Hostile Staff and Owner, Cockroach in my food! more

Don't forget Lunch 5/16/2010

With so many reviews about the breakfast (it is without equal in San Antonio) I just had to say something about the lunch. I really like their German potato salad and they have one of the best ruben sandwiches in town. Oh, and yes, you can have breakfast for lunch! Pros: Great food, good service, menu variety Cons: the wait more

it is worth the wait. 5/10/2010

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 is what breakfast dining SHOULD BE. Pros: the food Cons: the wait more

San Antonio Best Pancakes 5/1/2010

They have the best Pancakes! I love how the syrup can come warm and the service is good Pros: Warm Pancakes Cons: long wait more

Don't order the sausage! 12/17/2009

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. Pros: Good service and pancakes. Cons: Sausage! more

Great Food Bad Service 11/30/2009

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. Pros: Food was awesome Cons: Hostesses were extremely rude more

Great breakfast - Best pancakes I've ever had 10/23/2009

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! Pros: Pancakes are great, Open-faced Denver Omelet delicious Cons: Very busy - lots of people more

Breakfast this morning 9/20/2009

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 .... Pros: Nice atmosphere! Cons: Extremely long waits...... We came back a second time more

Closed at 2??? Right!! 7/7/2009

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!!! more

Yummy food and Excellent Service 2/7/2009

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! more

Decently priced brunch fare; disappointing food 6/15/2008

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: Pros: variety, price, portions Cons: taste, service more
