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.""
I am a big breakfast lover. I have been to many places in San Antonio trying all kinds of breakfast joints. By far this has to be the best breakfast here. Their sausage patty and pancakes are my fav. The only thing is the wait time. Believe me, it is worth the wait. On the weekends if you don't get there before 8:30am you will be waiting 45min-1hr.

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 hash...it was tough! How can hash be tough? My daughter found a scrub bristle in her omelet...at 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...
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!
I ordered Pecan Praline French Toast. First bite I was ready to sent it back. It was artificially flavored. The syrup was water thin and the bacon on the side was like jerky. Both our orange juices tasted sour. My Dad ordered biscuits and gravy and the biscuits were not fully cooked. Cost us $28.00! Both of us wish we had read the reviews and went to Denny's!
