      We were really impressed with your tearoom. The variety of tea's, choice of menu items, which included Australian dishes and excellent service. We will definitely go back.

      I was not impressed with the service, food or the experience. The tea selection was bags of tea, which is not what i expect from a tea house. The women and men were dressed up as disney characters, which did not appeal to me. I would not go back.

      Went for Mother's Day lunch, it was a very fun and different way to spend the day. From tea to soup then sandwiches to desert, it was all very we'll made and tasty. Would recommend anyone to try, they even have tea parties with Disney characters too for the kids!

      Tearoom response:

      It was such a wonderful day being able to celebrate with all the mums in our little town. Thank you for joining us and allowing us to be part of your special day.<BR>

      I have to say that I don't think the last unkind review was warranted at all. My daughter and I visited the Magnolia Terrace a few weeks ago and had a really nice time. It was not the fanciest tearoom we have ever been to, but I thought they did a really nice job. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We were amazed at the extensive menu that included both English and Australian dishes. We both had high tea which was $16.95 (a decent price) which included soup in a cute tea cup, finger sandwiches, a variety of desserts and of course a pot of tea. Some of the pro's: nice presentation, loved the framed tea cups on the wall and the tea display, friendly server and a huge menu including a list of teas. Cons: location in a strip plaza near a liquor store, signs on door about Groupon coupons (made me a bit disappointed knowing that others were using a coupon and I was paying full price), and I would have preferred my tea to be loose as opposed to a tea bag. Overall, I think this tearoom does a good job. They have worked hard to make you forget about the strip plaza once you walk through the doors!

      Tearoom response:

      Thank you Adrienne! I was also surprised and disappointed by the previous review. We try so very hard to please everyone. Then we realized, that the review wasn't actually real, because our Quiche is made as a triple cheese quiche and not with vegetables and we always add white chocolate to our scones so they couldn't possibly be white flour concoctions..Thank you for being such a wonderful and loyal customer!!

      Went to this establishment on three different ocassions , what a dreadful experience . The room is decorated with cheap accessories ( think nine year old princess want-to- be's with lots of walmart specials) . The food is horrible to say the least ,the quiche is really scrambled eggs with veggies added for good measure , the scones are dry, flavorless flour concoctions,really they are barely edible ! The service is very slow and the prices are a bit high. For a real teahouse experience I suggest you skip this place . Three times is not the charm for this place !

      We've been to Magnolia's many times, and have always enjoyed the food and the leisurely atmosphere. Recently tried the Empress Tea Room in Tampa, and we have to say that Magnolia's has them beat! Hope Magnolia's will be around for a long time to come.

      I love the new look of the Tea Room Magnolia. You have provided such a wonderful place in Hernando county to relax. The tea and food is so awesome. I love the selection of tea sandwiches and desserts. I hope you bring back the shabby chic look that you had before, but any how the spring colors are beautiful too. The tea butlers are refreshing. Nice young men learning how to properly address and serve ladies. They are young so I know theres room for improvement. I have to admit I'm grateful to see your giving them a chance. Keep up the great work Magnolia. We will return again and again.

      What a pretty little tea room! We had high tea at Magnolia and found it so wonderful. There was a huge selection of tea sandwiches and home made desserts, along with a cute teacup of soup, pot of tea and quiche. The food was so delicious! we will return soon. The staff was dressed in smart attire and the chefs in cute feminine chef coats. The decore of the tea room didnt look like the photos, but I understand they recently relocated to a larger space.Very pretty spring colors!We cant wait to come back.

      What a wonderful Tea Room. I can;t believe anyone would say a bad thing about it. Sure sometimes the service is slow, but it's not a fast food restaurant!! Tea takes time to brew, it's not instant Tea. Someone said the food isn't consistent,well that there tells me it's home made...lol Each time we have been there, the food is made to order, so it's fresh! Not like other places that pre-make everything so it's not fresh. This tea room is perfect the way it is, so don't change anything Magnolia, keep up the great job. We are so glad you brought such a wonderful place to our little town.

      I am so excited that we found this Tea Room. Not many tea rooms are children friendly, but this one is. They went out of their way to make sure our day was perfect. We celebrated my mothers birthday along with my daughter and self. They gave my mother a special birthday cupcake and played the most adorable princess birthday song for her.Thank you Magnolia Terrace Tea Room!!

      While we never thought the taste of the food was exceptional, my daughter and I always enjoyed going to Magnolia Terrace Tea Room when it was in it's original location. We visited the newer location a few times and figured they had to work out some kinks. I arranged a visit with some friends and my daughter in Nov. of 2012 (I have just joined Tea Map, thus the late review). We had always had very good service from Mary Ellen (I think that is her name) but for some reason that day we had a young man who did not know anything about the tea, food variety, salads. There were a few young men serving that day and it just seemed to me none of them had any idea of how to serve let alone explain the menu or answer questions. We had a few people at our table who did not want hot tea. We had to remind him quite a few times to bring water for them. The service was very slow. While I assume the tea trays were made up when ordered, I didn't quite understand the problem with getting our tea. There is another problem I feel in the consistency of the food. I have had the Curry Chicken Salad a few times (granted, not one of our favorites) but sometimes the curry is overpowering and both myself and my daughter cannot eat it. We usually order a different sandwich in lieu of that salad. We have not been back to this tea room since that time. I really feel sad, it was so nice to just run in for a cup of tea and a relaxing hour. I do hope these criticisms are taken constructively. The Tea Room is very cute and could be terrific. I would maybe suggest a change of menu and an up grade of the quality of the food. Some of the sandwiches tasted like they used packaged deli meat. I don't mind deli meat, but it should be of good quality. Maybe I am disappointed because I might be expecting more of a Victorian Tea and this is advertised as an Australian Tea Room. This Tea Room can be so much more, and I hope it succeeds. We will be back just to see if things have changed any, I truly hope so. As far as the owner goes, Karen has always been very gracious and accommodating and I wish her the best.

      

      Went to the Magnolia Terrace Tea Room and Bistro and was very disappointed. First of all, the ambiance was not as cute as the pictures on site show. There were no ribbons of color on chairs or outside seating as shown. Secondly, the service was incredibly slow. We waited 15 minutes before our waiter ever came and gave us instruction that we all could choose our own kind of tea, etc... Because we pre purchased a group package from Groupon. It took the waiter 10-15 minutes to return with tea. We finally got our tea and 2 of the pots were the wrong tea. We didn't say anything because we had figured that would be another set back to the already slow service. Third issue... I asked the waiter about the Orange Ginger Tuna salad which he knew nothing about. How it was prepared, what was in it, and had never even tried it himself. I asked him if he was new( his mannerisms indicated that perhaps he was) and he said no! I have worked here a year!! I said then maybe have a small bite sized sample of the tuna salad as I have never had it served that way. He disappeared for a while and returned saying no. They don't have any prepared to allow me to sample it. So.. Though I found that odd.. I took my chances and ordered anyhow assuming it was probably prepared with mayo, a touch if ginger and cut up citrus oranges as I have made it in the past with green apples. When it arrived it was a orange ginger salad dressing mixed into it making it ugly brown in color and soggy wet and not good tasting at all. We couldn't imagine how long that would take to send it back so I are the salad around it which tasted like bagged salad with a bit of a preservative taste to it or a day too old. Also didn't want to complain to waiter as we had our small children with us and elderly grandmother and wanted to keep things as pleasant as possible. Forth problem... The other 4 people in the party are the ones who got the 4 course entree package. The broccoli cheddar soup was not think like we have always eaten, but watery like broth. A bit odd. The quiche was also a bit odd. The texture was as if it had beeen heated in the microwave. Cheese a bit rubbery on top and soggy crust( at least I thought it was crust??). Not sure though. Needed salt badly. We looked at the tables to see if we could find some amd we couldn't, and of course, where is the waiter now. So we are it as it was.. We were starved! Fifth issue. Tiered sandwiches and desserts came out. We asked the waiter what kind of sandwiches were they as there was a variety. He couldn't tell us. We asked him why he couldn't and mentioned he should know his menu better after such a long te of employment. His response was that they change them in the kitchen without telling them so he wasn't sure what they were BWW feel a waiter should ask the kitchen as he picking up his order to being out to a guest. One of them was ham but he told us it was turkey. So we all started to eat them and realized they were ham.. Which none of us eat. So we left it after the first bite. Also on the plate was a few desserts in which were 3 store bought cookies. How I know this that for end of school year party I had purchased the same exact cookies at Sam's Bulk Store. Lastly, when we were finished I was the only one who was expecting a check as I did not prepay. I ordered separately. But the other 4 got a bill!!! It said mandatoey gratuity of over $12 and a tax of over $4 making the bill over $16! We were floored!!! We didn't have a large party and gratuity to us is based on great food and service. We always tip 20% at a restaurant, but this experience didn't warrant that. We drove an hour to get to the tea room and spent an hour and a half to 2 hours getting through the awful service. So I paid my bill and my sister paid just the tax of $4.50... We were chased down in the parking lot and told we didn't pay the full amount. We explained our disappointment and that gratuity is optional upon quality and that the bill itself was pre-paid. He continued to say that it is mandatory and we must pay it and that it is the legal agreement between the restaurant and Groupon. ( which indicated no such thing on our groupon print out. My sister gave in as we were already late getting home and the manager came out and asked us why we didn't enjoy our visit. We told her why very respectfully and she sarcastically responded' well I hope you can have a better day'!!! And stoemed off. No customer service or wave of the gratuity or pay what you feel.. Nothing!!! When we got in the car to head home we called Groupon to see what we were misunderstanding and it appears we didn't misunderstand at all and that there is no such agreement and that was a lie! Quite the opposite.. Groupon wants you to enjoy your experience so you go back and that is the benefit of the program.. Repeat business. He waved the actually pre- paid charge from my sisters credit card .. He was so disgusted. It is now in the hands of the upper management to be reviewed as to the Magnolia Terrace Tea Room business dealings or how they conduct business. Groupon doesn't want that to reflect on them and their business dealings and success. We were advised to go to the BBB amd to report it to the local paper.. Which we will. I called the manager to let her know that it was wrong and that they have some corrections to make in service, food, and business protocol and she, again, only got sarcastic and defensive and gave no customer service or apologies. We then shared we would never return or recommend their establishment.

      This is a lovely tea room just needs a bit of fine tuning. Your not asked what tea you'd like or even what tea 'they' decide to serve you, the day I was there is was a simple orange-poke that had been steeped to long. But they are new & I'm hoping they'll improve. The service was very nice & friendly.

      Oct 17, 2012. My husband and I had a Groupon coupon to try this tearoom. What a delightful experience. We had the afternoon tea for two, the soup, sandwiches , desserts and tea were delicious. We were surprised at the large selection and how there was more than enough to be comfortably full. The setting is delightfully quaint and cheerful, the service and our tea maiden (Dawn) was excellent. They serve more than just sandwiches so my husband Billy and I will definitely going back. Left there feeling relaxed, happy and full. Give this Tearoom 5 stars!!!

      Oh my goodness, where do I start. What a fabulous place!! We attended the wine and cheese tasting evening on saturday evening. It was incredible, the best wine tasting party we have ever attended. Not only was the food amazing, the local and imported wines were exciting conversational pieces. This was the best wine tasting we have ever been too. Most tasting events limit you to mouth full sizes of wine. Not at The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room, the event ended when all the wine and food was gone!! We were able to have several glasses of what ever our favorites were at no additional cost. The staff even made sure we all had designated drivers as well as offering rides if needed...lol What a great place. We will return for the next one... just let us know when.

      I had lunch at this little tea room today and found it to be absolutely wonderful. I have traveled to many tea rooms, only to leave disappointed and still hungry. The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room is amazing. The food portions are large and the service is pampering. 'Fine dining in a chabby chic victorian atmosphere.' I was so amazed by this little tea room that I scheduled our group Christmas Party there! I am rating The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room as one of the top must visit restaurants in Florida.

What a surprise! At first I thought it was a wine list, but when I opened it.. wow, pages and pages of organized types of teas. Red teas, white teas, herbal teas, blacks teas, chai teas and so many more. We were able to try as many as we desired at no extra charge. Then after we order, we received the most delicious food and large portions too. Too top it off we had a heavenly dessert called a Pavlova. The dessert alone is worth returning over and over again. But put it all together and you have a perfect afternoon.

      Thank you Karen, Mary Ellen and the rest of the staff for making our Red Hat luncheon so special. I promised we would all review your tearoom on teamap. So we all did tonight! You were so kind to make sure all of us were taken care of. Some of our group had special food needs (diabetics, gluten free,vegetarians and allergies) you catered for us all. No other place has ever done this for us. Again thank you for such wonderful kindness and all the special attention given to our group. What an asset to Spring Hill! We will return again and again. BTW, a couple of our ladies were trying to get ideas from other tearoom postings by looking at others comments and accidently posted a comment for made for you to them...lol Serves them right for short cutting!! They need better computer skills.

The atmosphere is charming, the variety of teas is amazing and the food is delicious and beautifully presented.

      We never leave disappointed from The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room. Their teas are always brewed perfectly and all of their food is delicious and homemade. We love having Mary Ellen as our server. She makes us feel special and couldn't be any kinder. The owner, Karen, always stops by our table to say hi and makes sure we have everything we need. The room is decorated beautifully with unique shabby Chic items. I always leave feeling so relaxed and refreshed! Needless to say, I love this place and highly recommend it, even to the fussiest of tea drinkers

      The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room is just too wonderful to describe. Upon entering the tea room, I was enchanted by the setting and delighted at how wonderfully decorated the room was. The food was phenomenal, and the best part is that it's all HOME-MADE! Even the delicious yummy custard for the Trifle. The tea was fabulous, and the waitress as well as the owner were the nicest people I have ever met. I definitely recommend this place to anyone. I will be coming back!!!

I personally visit each table to make sure that all of our customers are having a wonderful time. I wish you had expressed your concerns to me personally and given us the opportunity to have corrected what ever was not to your satisfaction. We highly value our customers and want to make sure their entire experience is remarkable.<BR> Karen

      My friends and I went to this little tea room yesterday. I have to start by saying that everything was perfect, the music, the food and decor. Then after talking to other customers I found out that the owner Karen had opened the tea room just for them so they could enjoy lunch/tea with their family members, that were in town just for the holidays. That touched my heart. I thought to myself, how special and rare is it that you find a business that truly cares about their customers. My friends and I felt so fortunate to have discovered this little gem in Spring Hill FL. I can't wait for our next visit.

A friend of mine suggested The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room and I am so grateful she did. This little place is magical. I cant even describe how warm and inviting it is. The decor is simply beautiful. The food is delicious and our tea pots never emptied. We had a wonderful time visiting with each other and sharing past memories. I highly recommend this Tea Room to everyone!

The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room is amazing. The food portions are large and the service is pampering. 'Fine dining in a chabby chic victorian atmosphere.' I was so amazed by this little tea room that I scheduled our group Christmas Party there! I am rating The Magnolia Terrace Tea Room as one of the top must visit restaurants in Florida.

      It's always very difficult when anyone has to deal with mental illness, let alone when the mentally ill person is your mother and doing anything to hurt you. We were there at your tea room on Saturday for a baby shower and we had a wonderful time. The tea room was perfect, the staff was wonderful and the food delightful! Karen keep up the great work. Anyone that has had the opportunity to visit your Tea Room knows that the last poster (your mother)is only making those comments to hurt you. Your Tea Room is just what our community has needed. Finally a special place for the ladies. A magical place we can visit with friends and feel like princesses!!! We are here for you.

      Tearoom response:

      Thank you so much and thank you to everyone that rallied together to help us. All the prayers, offers for use of china, tea cups and help were incredible. We were able to purchases all new items (tables, chairs, china, linens, stove, sinks, counters and so on). The local community and shops really went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed to reopen today. We replaced the entire tea room within 48 hours! We truly feel wanted and loved in the community. Special thanks to Mike, Mary Ellen and my children for helping me stay strong, focused and the 2 all day shopping sprees and late nights setting the tea room back up.<BR> <BR> I am so grateful to everyone that helped make it possible for us to reopen today (wednesday 9/15/10.<BR> <BR> Karen

      This place is awful. It wasn't clean. I could see back in the kitchen and it was frightfully a disaster. The decorations were cheap. The staff was not dressed appropriately nor were they polished for the environment that they were trying to achieve. I drove past it today and the place is empty and closed. I'm surprised it lasted this long.

      Tearoom response:

      I am so sorry that my mother posted this, yes it is true that we are closed until wednesday. The reason being that she gained entry into the tea room and stole and removed everything over night. The police have been notified and though this set us back a few days we will be reopened for business as usual on wednesday. I do apologize that this posting was made. It is difficult when a family member is mentally ill. I apologize deeply and hope our customers understand. Thank you to all our our customers and friends that have come to help and aide us in this very difficult situation. We are so grateful for your support.<BR> <BR> Karen

Decor is quite'frilly;' perfect to delight little girls; comfortable for their parents and grandparents.

      My friends and I have been around the Tampa Bay Area for Tea the last few years and have always had to drive an hour or so to find a Tea Room. The Magnolia Terrace Tea Toom is quite a find, we were so excited to see it open. It’s atmosphere is special with lots of Victorian touches. The service was wonderful and very personal. They have a large assortment of teas which gives us a chance to each order something different. We chose an assortment of sandwiches, savories, scones and desserts. The blueberry scones came out warm and freshly baked and very delicious. All the items were presented nicely and very good. Since it was a quiet day, we were able to talk to Maggie and Karen, the owners to learn about the history of the Tea Time. Thanks again for a wonderful experience with the nice setting, good food, and personal service. (Also, appreciated the photo as a memory of the day) We have booked our church luncheon for 30+ for May!!!

      Ladies, support this Tea room, the charm and decor is amazing, we had lunch there on Wedesday and it was amazing. I tried the Shepherds Pie, which Maggie makes daily! It was amazing. My friend had the Camenbert, Leek and Smoked Salmon Quiche and was very impressed with the taste. She asked for the recipe and the owners happily wrote it down for her. Since everything is baked fresh, the only downside it when it is gone, it's gone for the day. The Devonshire Scones were to dies for!! This is a wonderful place that you can go and sit, relax and talk with your friends for hours. The hot tea pots are never ending!!! We basically floated out of there.

Maggie and her daughter helped it all come together for us. My friend and myself really needed to get away and we were so relaxed and full of joy when we left. The food was very good and the teas were assortments are great. Maggie and Karen, many blessings to you and your family. Keep your chins up and dont worry about the one negative person on here.
