Described as "upscale Southern" & it is. Typical souther dishes with modern twists. It is 3 floors with the main dining room on the 1st floor, additional seating on the 2nd floor (steep stairs) & a bar & outdoor patio on the roof . I've been for lunch & dinner & enjoyed what I ordered but didn't love it. It... More

My son and I was wandering through southern Georgia and we stumbled upon Steel Magnolias (ok...he found it). The food was superb, the service was friendly and, as my son stated so eloquently, "I wish my mouth was bigger so I could fit more inside." Do yourself a favor if you are in the area - go here. You will... More

On our road trip, returning from Florida, we made the decision to drive into Valdosta so that we could have our dinner at Steel Magnolias. Highlight of the day. Great vibe in the restaurant and interesting choices on the menu.

We were passing through Valdosta & used TripAdvisor to guide us for dinner here. It was fantastic! In fact, we liked it so much, we decided to draw out our evening there with drinks, an appetizer, meals & dessert. It cost us just under $100 but I'd do it again!

I wasn't a big fan of this restaurant when they first opened because the menu was limited, but I gave it a second try and the menu has been expanded. I was a little disappointed in the prices of their appetizers which was around $15.00 each. I have tried several though and they have all been good. Most of what... More

I absolutely loved this little gem in Valdosta! The restaurant setting was great but the food was excellent! I had the oysters which were cooked perfectly! We also had the bruschetta, Fried Green Tomatoes and scallops....everything was wonderful!!! Highly recommend you give it a try!

As a resident of Valdosta, but having lived in Atlanta for YEARS, I have to say this is one of the best restaurants in the state, let alone in South Georgia! Make sure to check out the rooftop bar before or after dinner!
