On a trip from Atlanta to Florida, we wanted to stop for lunch in southern GA. After consulting TripAdvisor, Steel Magnolias seemed like just the ticket. We were first surprised by the very attractive and active downtown, centered around the very nice old county court house. Steel Magnolias is located on a main street in an old building which was...

Marty and I frequently drive from Juno Beach to Atlanta and my aching back only lets me get half way before I begrudgingly pull over in or around Valdosta. Having dined last week at Steel Magnolia's I'm excited about my next opportunity to further explore their outstanding Urban-Southern menu! Everything we ordered was very good. The thing we liked the... More

We read about Steele Magnolias while on I-75 and can say it is well worth the drive off the interstate for a delicious lunch. The ambiance is sweet, the staff very accommodating and the food nicely presented and very good. The grilled chicken wrap with pimento cheese was a perfect combination. The burgers were good too. We would definitely return... More

Great all the way around. Food, service, atmosphere, fantastic. We were there this past Friday night with friends and there were people of all ages present. They have a place upstairs with outside seating, along with the seating downstairs where we ate. Very unique place with an eclectic menu. If you like different food selections, this is a great rstaurant.

If you are traveling along I-75 near Valdosta around lunch or dinner, take a short detour to downtown Valdosta and have a fantastic meal at Steel Magnolias! This multistory old building is a step back in time...there is a grand staircase leading to the second floor (complete with a bar on the landing) as well as a roof top area... More

This place met every visual, delectable and effectual expectation I had and then some. I was blown away with the hospitality, great selection of food, amazing flavor and quality as well as the atmosphere. While it is on the pricier side, it's well worth it! I will definitely be back!!!

Try one of the salads with rare tuna. I especially like the seared lettuce with seared tuna. Sandwiches are very good too, the shrimp and grouper are favorites.

WOW! What a nifty restaurant. Extremely pleasant surprise in (new to us) downtown Valdosta. We dined at the bar (2nd floor - top of the wide open staircase). We declined the roof top dining room as the weather was VERY HOT in July, but, weather permitting, looks like FUN! Wife ordered appetizer, pulled pork deviled eggs, and said they were... More
