We walked into Magnolia's after many hours of walking through Charleston. We did not have a reservation; however, we hoped they would seat since we came in around 3:30. We were thrilled when they did. I had chosen Magnolia's for it's fried green tomatoes. Its one of my favorite southern dishes that sadly I can not find in Florida. My husband and I had the fried green tomatoes as our appetizer. The tomatoes were served over a bed of grits, surrounded by a tomato butter sauce, and covered with smoked ham, tomatoes and onions. It was better than I could have ever imagined. My husband ordered the wahoo special served over lobster mac-n-cheese and with a side of french string beans. The serving of wahoo was large. He was impressed with the large pieces of lobster throughout his mac-n-cheese. His lunch was amazing. I had the bouillabaisse. The flavors were in my bouillabaisse was unlike anything I've ever experienced. The portions were very generous for a lunch menu and the meal was outstanding. I will recommend this restaurant to any friends visiting Charleston.
