Very nice place for Sunday brunch. Highly recommend the salmon and the fried green tomatoes.

My fiancé and I went here for our 2012 valentine dinner. The menu was outstanding particularly the fried green tomatoes along with everything else we had. It was great to see fine dining choices offered in smaller entree potions. The wine list was excellent and our waiter Billy was engaging and helpful without being overbearing. The chocolate raspberry creame brûlée in the heart shaped dish was a very nice finishing touch.

I was recommended to eat at this restaurant while we were visiting Charleston. We went on our first night there. It was very welcoming and romantic. You must have the fried chicken dinner - an absolute divine eating experience. My husband and I even shared this because the portion was so big (even had leftovers). We did pay a $5 sharing fee which was perfect because you get larger portions of the sides. I rated the food as very good even though the crab soup tasted mostly like salt and the caramelized brussel sprouts were awful. The service was a little bit amiss because we had to keep getting the servers' attention for drinks, and we didn't get the brussel sprouts until the end of our dinner. Overall, the experience was really great!

Wonderful traditional lunch spot in the center of Charleston. Food was perfect. Great wine list. Fantastic service.

I didn't see a mention of a dress code but I would not be comfortable dining here in jeans and a t-shirt. Business casual recommended IMHO.

We ate at Magnolias during restuarant week in January and we had a great experience. The atmosphere was nice and romantic and the food was plentiful. We were actually referred to this place by a friend of ours that has his second home there in Charleston.
