Great menu that changes seasonally and features local products. Recommend the pimento cheese and the deviled eggs are a must.

Such a classy place with southern undertones! We ate on the roof (yes it's November but they had lots of heat lamps so we didn't get cold) and the atmosphere was truly magical. Classic downtown feel topped off with excellent food and wine! Definitely a recommendation for anyone planning a visit to or traveling through Valdosta!

Creative, fresh, tasty food served by attentive and knowledgable servers in a beautiful atmosphere. The drinks are out of this world. Close to I-75 for a en route detour. Great for special occasions or out of town guests.

Found Steel Magnolias on Trip Advisor on our way up 75 from Florida. What a great evening! Landed a table on the rooftop and were treated right off to wonderful live music and the Porch Swing and No. 132 cocktails (in multiples!). The Deviled Eggs were a perfect starter. Shared the Duck Breast and Pork Belly entrees which were crispy... More

We were visiting Valdosta and got on Trip advisor to look for a nice local place to eat. Well, my wife found this place and we looked at the menu online to see what they had. Looked good to us so we went for dinner. The staff was great and the kitchen is right in front. A nice open kitchen... More

This is an excellent choice if you are near Valdosta. Service and food are outstanding. I had the duck breastfeeding and duck sausage and it was perfectly cooked and served on a bed of sweet potatoes! Delicious! The roof top bar is a nice place for after dinner cocktail and on weekends they have live music.

Rooftop bar/restaurant had a view of old downtown Valdosta and a lightning display from an impending thunderstorm.

Living in Atlanta I was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant like this in Valdosta. They having great cocktails with catchy names like Porch Swing and Southern Sweet Tea served in mason jars with fresh herbs. We tried the deviled eggs (to die for) and the fried green tomatoes for appetizers and both were delicious. We tried several different meals... More

We love this place! The atmosphere is beautiful, but relaxed. I have eaten here numerous times and have never had anything bad. It's a great place for a special event or just a Friday night out.

We frequently meet family in Valdosta, but usually eat at another wonderful local restaurant. This time we were traveling with a pet. We found Steel Magnolias on "bringfido.com" . Wow! did we luck out!! We sat outside and they even provided our dog with homemade dog treats and a bowl of water! The service was fantastic and the food was... More
