We made reservations a week previous to our visit and had a wonderful meal and good service. Our house wine was excellent and the food outstanding (Filet Mignon, Trout, and Shrimp) There is no view but the food makes up for the lack of view.

We had wanted to experience southern food and we had read that this was the place to go.
That turned out to be very accurate! Food was just amazing. I had a pork chop over Carolina red rice with crispy pork belly and fried okra. My husband had the fried chicken with collared greens and if I remember correctly we also had mac and cheese.

The food was seriously amazing. The service was top notch. We had a waiter named Joe from New Jersey, he had just moved down to the area and was only working a couple of weeks at Magnolias. He was the best waiter we've ever had the pleasure of having for our table. He was friendly, courteous, professional, attentive, and just a plain nice guy! The place is small, but with a pretty and comfortable atmosphere.

We loved everything about it and will definitely return if ever back in Charleston.

Terrific restaurent for all ages. I had the fried oyster salad and it was delicious. Our entire party was completely happy with their meals as well.

We had high expectations of this place from reviews and they were exceeded. Loved the collard green "egg rolls" and the shell fish over grits and flounder were excellent as well. We yielded to the temptation for dessert and enjoyed the warm Strawberry Shortcake.
