Magnolia's Tips (5)

Magnolia's: Fried Green Tomatoes and Other Tasty Things

Magnolia's chef presents 'American cuisine with a Down South flavor' to it, so I was determined to have fried chicken as an entree the night we dined here.

I was happy to find Fried Chicken with biscuits, mashed potatoes, collard greens, creamed corn and sausage herb gravy ($19) and ordered it with little thought to anything else. My husband liked the Grilled Salmon with mushrooms ($27) and was very contented with his choice, as well.

Once again as at the other restaurants, we found the service to be very good. We were seated at a corner table, which we delighted in because it was away from any hustle-bustle. Candles were lit, we snuggled in and watched the scene before us.

There was a busy bar area on a raised tier above the dining area. Atmosphere seems to be the norm in Charleston, for nothing adds to our pleasure more than dining in a preserved and elegant old remnant of the past.

Favorite Dish The Fried Green Tomatoes: covered with white cheddar, carmelized onion grits, country jam with tomato chutney ($9) LUSCIOUS!

Magnolia's: Best Southern Cuisine

The restaurant is formal, yet relaxing. Just about anywhere in downtown Charleston you'll see a variety of people, and this place is no exception - you can see one couple in formal wear, dining before a cocktail party, and another in khaki shorts and a polo, just taking a break from sight-seeing. Be sure to call ahead for reservations during holiday weekends or special events times (Spoleto, bridge-run, etc)

Favorite Dish Mocha Creme Brulee - the to die for dessert. All the entrees, desserts and appetizers are mouth-watering and become your favorites. They have an excellent wine selection, including ports and dessert drinks. The filet mignon is the tastiest and most tender I've ever had. The pork loin is full of flavor. The spring rolls appetizer is a must.

Magnolias: High class southern eating

Delicious southern cuisine entrees and a great wine list. This is a very classy restaurant and I almost felt a little too out of place here. However, the food was awesome and the service was phenomenal.

Favorite Dish Parmesan Crusted Flounder with mashed potatoes and sauteed asparagus. Also try the creamy tomato bisque soup.

Magnolia's: Low Country Cuisine

On the main street of one oldest sections of Charleston there are a number of good places to stop and eat after walking by the old houses all morning.

Magnolias serves traditional Low Country seafood, grits and greens using inspired southern recipes informed by modern tastes.

The BBQ was ok but not great and looked like it had been sitting prepared and waiting to be heated up just a moment or two too long.

Favorite Dish Spring roll with seafood, collard greens, peach chutney and spicy mustard that was sublime.

Seafood with creamy grits was not bad - but it could have been great.

The wine selection was terrific.

The johnny cakes and fresh berries were divine.
