They painted over all of the paintings with some awful gold paint! I just heard the word from my girlfriend who went there today. She was so sick she couldn't stay. It seems like some idiot bought the place and remodeled it to look like I don't know what, like some room painted with automobile gold paint. I hadn't gone there for awhile and I don't think I'll be going there again.

How can anyone eat here, unless of course they are so drunk from the delicious beer that they don't realize the 40 minute wait for food or the poor quality and crazy high prices.
I like the beer, not love but a strong like. No one can complain too much about the quality or selection of on-site brew.
On the other hand, how do you mess up a salad so much that even after 2 send backs it is still inedible?
We ordered a sandwich that was mediocre at best and a salad that might be the worst one ever served in San Francisco. The tab for these 2 items (not including beer) was almost $40. After we finished our pints we walked down the road and got a few slices.
Go for the beer - eat elsewhere

I like this place a lot. It's always warm when the wind is blowing and it's one of the few places where you can get a burger and a glass of cava. The wait staff are efficient and always treat the solo diner very well. Also, they have very good beer - have a glass or three while you hang out at the bar.

I'm sorry but the food was terrible. My wife and I have been to Magnolia's several times, and it's been inconsistent at best. The pork sandwich was great, but the steak sandwich was rare, undercooked and awful. A week later we decided to try the lamb sausage and the buffalo sausage with similar results. The lamb sausage was horrific, served like a twirled doggie doo, and that?s about what it tasted like. . .vinegar, fleshy, and undercooked. The buffalo sausage wasn?t cooked thoroughly and it was like eating uncooked hamburger. . .yuk. It was so bad that I hope we don?t get sick. Sorry for the bad review.

This used to be a fabulous place to go for a burger and a beer. They recently (sometime between 4/20/08 and 5/31/08) renovated and I have to say it would have been better if the place had burnt to the ground.
They painted over all of the wonderful murals on the walls with some awful gold paint. They also changed the menu and generally destroyed the atmosphere.
My wife and I ate there this last weekend and we were disgusted. What used to be a great hamburger is now a soggy disgusting mess. My wife ate the polenta and she was sick all the following day.
Sadly, we used to be regular customers. Now we will never go back.
Unless you're just looking for a quick pint in the upper haight, don't go here.
Shame on you for destroying such a wonderful place.

Excellent beer and atmosphere. Magnolia's seems to fit perfectly in the Haight neigborhood with a large variety of beer which comes complete with lots of Grateful Dead music. Unfortunately, the slow service destroys what would otherwise be an excellent experience.

I've been living on Haight Street for almost a year now and as local eat at Magnolias two to three times a week. Over the past year, though their beers and ambience are great, it has gone down. Their food is no longer what it used to be and just recently their service has gone down to even less than one star. I would recomend you look for another brewery or pub. Save yourself the money, buy a beer. But don expect good service or food.

Great local pub feel, and unbelievable selection of real ale. 5 cask conditioned and 8 draughts were on when we were in, didn't make it through all of them, but had fun trying. Our waitress Katie was wonderful, very friendly to these out of towners, and helpful with selections. One of those places that you just have to experience. Highly recommended.

After reading the rave reviews on city search I decided to give it a try during their happy hour. I was somewhat disappointed to find out that there were only 6 featured beers on tap. I am an amber beer lover and they did have that on the selection so I was pleased. Not only were they out of beer selectoin, they were also out of a couple food menu items. This made it difficult to find something appealing on such a short menu to begin with. I am not that picky so I managed. I was suprised to find out that citysearch missed informed me that they served $2.50 20 0z pints for happy hour when indeed it was $4.00 pints. I could of got a better deal with better food somewhere else along the avenue.

Magnolia's serves some of the best cask conditioned ales in town. If you like yours colder and more carbonated; they have a version that's sure to please.
The food is good enough to make the finickiest eater happy. Actually the food is quite stylish for a pub. The place is small, noisy and crowded as any good local pub should be!
The funky artwork and tableside masterpieces lend a unique vibe to this Haight haunt.
The Sarah's Ruby Mild is highly recommended and if you live within the bay area you have to check this place out.

This isn't touted as a Bruch location, but the weekend specials menu is SO good! Spring pea, asparagus and spinach scramble... knock your sox off good! Fresh, Fresh, Fresh... is all I have to say about everything! The hash leaves a bit to be desired by us Irish traditionalists. But absolutely everything else was plate-licking good! :) We went back for brunch on Sunday just for the Bacon... yes it is that good! The service is brisk, but friendly and remember to put your name in at the bar as soon as you walk in the door, this is not a ""grab an empty table"" sort of place. The beer selection is a sight to be seen... enjoy! :)

I love Magnolia's sustainable agriculture cuisine and laidback approach. Sadly, I'm not a beer fan, so I couldn't take advantage of the remarkable selection of brews. If you love beer, jam bands, and american cuisine, I can definitely recommend Magnolia, a welcome fixture in The Haight.

The most comfortable pub in the ciity to kick back and enjoy a piint and some delicious food. Tuesday's are great for $2.50 pints, you really can't go wrong with that, especially the cute bartender that works Tuesday nigths. Come for the beer, stay for the food and the service.

agnolias Stout of Circumstance may be the very best beer in The States. Yeah, you heard me, in all of the great ol USofA. Its dark, rich, and smooth, served at the perfect temperature in a stout glass that allows its magnificent head to formand most importantly it is brewed there on premises and always on tap (not a seasonal concoction). I urge you to get there ASAP, before the news spreads of this liquid bliss and the line to get in the joint stretches all the way down HaightRUN!!!
