We enjoyed everything about this restaurant so we went back the next day.
Food was great as was the wine selection.
Their desserts were even better.
Free parking in their lot next door.

We had an excellent dinner , party of 3 on a Friday night. No trouble making reservations and we appreciated the nearby parking! Food, service, and selections were wonderful. Bustling activity and everyone having a superb time! I will be back and next time I will save room for dessert!

We stopped in Magnolias for lunch last week on our two day stay in Charleston. My wife and I both loved it. I had the Shrimp and Gritts and it was fantastic. And I normally dont care much for sea food. The gritts were so buttery and the shrimp was cooked perfect. I loved it because being from the west coast it represented to me a real Southern meal. My wife had the turkey sandwich which i know sounds kind of boring. However, she said it was by far the best turkey sandwich she ever had. Kind of had all the flavors of Thanksgiving in an sandwitch. We were gone for 10 days traveling (to Hilton Head) and this was by far our best meal. She now wants me to buy her the cookbook by the chef for Magnolias.

Highly recommended, we came here for lunch at 2:30 with reservations. It was packed! I had Parmesean crusted flounder that was very good. The restaurant was very good and I would come here again.
