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.

3 years ago we visited Steel Magnolias and the service was horrible. Now, with a new owner that seems to love what she does and knows how to prepare good food, I'm changing my review to "Excellent". We love to go there on Saturdays and the service is now wonderful and the food is excellent. What a wonderful change for... More

WE had a wonderful meal on the roof top on a beautiful day. The atmosphere and the food could not have been better. The service was excellent too.

We were there for a friends wedding reception. I was really surprised the food they serve was absolutely great! The service was over-the-top everything was looked after to the smallest detail! Everyone raved about the shrimp and grits that was served! Plan to return again.

We came for a great friend's wedding reception and we we're positively blown away. Great food, wonderful decor and a gracious, accommodating staff. A truly great experience. The ownership should be proud of what they have created. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stop!

The menu has more variety than most restaurants in Georgia; not just barbecue or meat. We enjoyed the food, the wait staff were friendly and the value was good.

This was our first time to Steel Magnolias, but won't be our last. Our next business trip here...this will be our first dinner stop! As a lot of the reviews had stated that the Fried Green Tomatoes were good was an understatement. I love trying Fried Green Tomatoes...as a Foodie...these were outstanding and probably unbeatable! Do Try! I ordered the... More

I really enjoy this place the food is always fresh and very creative. The menu is seasonal and puts a nice twist on classic southern food. Come early as the place fills up and have a cocktail on the open roof top bar while you wait or be seated next to the front open kitchen and talk to the cooks.

My husband and I love this place. Every meal we have tried for lunch and dinner is super delicious. I totally recommend the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. The roof is really nice. This place has a great atmosphere.
