Magpie's Restaurant

For almost 30 years, Magpie's Restaurant has catered to the surrounding community, but even this decades-old legacy pales in comparison to the legacy of the building that it occupies.

Deeply Rooted in the Past

The aromas of homemade cooking and an aura of local legend both emanate from Magpie's Restaurant, situated on historic Main Street. The building dates to the Louisiana Purchase, in fact, it once served as the home of the Spanish governor. Somewhere between then and now, it also became known as "the witches' house," and the owner says she herself has witnessed "unexplainable occurrences" and a few spooked guests in the decades since Magpie's opened.

Statesmen and witches aside, the building remains true to its roots. The patio is paved with cobbestones, with eight-foot fire pits roaring during the winter and a lush canopy of foliage shading the space when it's warm. From time to time, it hosts live musical performances, creating an idyllic setting for a night out. When it's warm, your meal may even be prepared outdoors: a grill sears fish for tacos and other meats.

Magpie's Comfort Dinners

The menu at Magpie's Restaurant has nearly as timeless a feel as the ambience. Baked-potato soup and housemade quiche and desserts are perennial crowd-pleasers, but the kitchen's always adding new influences to the menu. Mediterranean sunshine beams through the lasagna florentine with housemade italian sausage and the flatbread pizzas, topped with pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, Chicken with Lemon Artichoke Sauce, Salmon with Ginger Sauce, feta, and kalamata olives. Cajun-inspired dishes such as shrimp-and-andouille pasta also add variety to a selection of familiar American comfort foods, such as chicken and rolled dumplings and pot roast.

What an incredibly nice compliment! Thank you so much! Please tell your friends about us. We were lunch only for so many years, people have a hard time thinking of us as a dinner location.
