At Steel Magnolias in Valdosta, GA our food base is urban Southern, taking the roots of classic Southern cuisine and showing a new way of looking at them. We serve our fare with an old familiar smile, where our patrons are surprised by a new approach, yet still know the secret handshake. We prepare the best quality ingredients at the freshest possible point and allow them to speak for themselves. We support local farmers and Artesian producers in an effort to become a supporting element in the community and drive our “eat local, be local” philosophy.

Pleasant surprise!

We were heading south for the winter and stopped for the night in Valdosta and came across this hidden gem! It was Valentine's Day so I expected a big crowd, and while the tables were all full, we were able to grab two seats at the bar.

My fiance took me here for a sweet valentine's dinner. I was impressed. We had reservations abs pretty much walked straight in. Our server was wonderful. I had no complaints. My fiance thought the music was a little loud. But the food and service was incredible.

We love Steel Magnolia for a night out. The bar on the roof is very fun and attracts some great local musicians. The cocktails are very good and plenty big. Everyone loves the Shrimp and grits.

This restaurant continues to be a very good choice. We checked out the menu and Betty decided on the chicken sandwich and I had the fried oysters over grits and with side order of Honey-Pecan fried okra. The meals were very good and I loved my combination. For desert I had the Banana Creme Brulee which had slices of banana... More

If you are traveling to Atlanta from the south, Steel Magnolias in Valdosta is a great stop. It is a college town that thrived over the years as a railroad mecca. Steel Magnolias is located in downtown Valdosta and is a great find. The kitchen is in the front of the restaurant as you walk in and the decorations are... More

Made a stop in quaint Valdosta and had lunch here. I had the poached pear salad, my husband had an oyster po'boy sandwich with salad. All was great. Ordered dessert as well (molten chocolate cake, also really good, not cloying sweet.

We are staying one night at an intersection that has every chain restaurant known to humankind, so I was looking for anything with a name I did not recognize. I asked at the motel if they knew Steel Magnolia and the clerk smiled and said 'you won't be disappointed.' She was so right. Have never had mussels like their mussels.... More

The food here is inventive and inspired. Often you will find a fresh take on a Southern favourite to delight your palate and excite your senses. Exactly the sort of thing one goes looking for on a date night! The food, service and atmosphere does not disappoint.
