This was the highlight of an adventure to Valdosta. We ordered two appetizers; fried green tomatoes and pulled pork & pimento cheese wontons. The many flavors were amazing. The wontons stood out. Despite the many flavors they all worked well together. The chocolate peanut butter pie should come with a warning! It is so rich! Although we didn't have a... More

One of my favorite restaurants. The food is comforting, unexpected and delicious. I order something different every time I go and I have never been disappointed. The dining room is beautiful and comfortable and the rooftop bar is perfect for appetizers and cocktails. Signature cocktails are wonderful and service has always been excellent.

We had the duck breast and short ribs. They were both very good. We sat on the roof top and enjoyed the downtown location. Would try again.

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.
