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.

Great food, good service

My shrimp wrap was well-seasoned and nicely done. The wrap itself was a bit on the cool side, I would have preferred it spent a minute or two on the flat top but it did not detract from the great taste. There was a fair amount of shrimp and just the right amount of lettuce and condiments. The... read more

Southern food with a modern touch. The owner is always there, she oversees the kichen and greets everyone by NAME! Great PR! They have local musicians during the weekends and some weekevenings. Great place

To start, We shared the tomato bruschetta with goat cheese and crostini. It was delicious. The tomatoes were hot, cooked with balsamic vinegar and basil. With the goat cheese and toasts, it was a yummy, deconstructed pizza. Then, hubby had the duck breast and duck sausage with blueberry compote and I had the grilled shrimp special. It was all very...

I try to visit this restaurant several times a year with friends and/or family. The food is outstanding and inventive, not your standard fare. It has a sophisticated but not snooty environment. It's great for special occasions or a fun evening out. I especially love eating on the rooftop.

Been here 4 times now over the last year and loved it every time! Upscale southern food with a nice twist, food expertly prepared in a fun vintage setting. Great quality and generous portions at a good price. Great service at every visit. Love it and a must if you are in Valdosta! We usually eat on the roof, but... More

Delicious food in a beautiful environment. Meats are eco-friendly and staff is equally friendly. Toured the three levels and experienced the history of the town.

The food was really good. We ordered a few sides and weren't disappointed. The pork was awesome as was the pear salad. The okra was probably my favorite. The bread and chicken fingers were a little over salted. The staff were friendly. Our server was very quiet and not very engaged but he did fine.

From the bread and deviled eggs to the scallops and shrimp and grits to the kids plates to the Pb pie and coconut cake, this was the best meal I've had in a long time. Perfectly southern and perfect delicious.

My wife and I were traveling and ended up in Valdosta as a stopping place. We searched Trip Advisor and Yelp for a good restaurant. We found Steel Magnolia. Are we glad we did! We opted for the roof-top dining "room". It was warm but a nice breeze made it comfortable. The server offered samples of their limited selection of... More
