This is a quaint eatery in downtown Valdosta with a unique menu offering a variety of entrees, sides, salads, sandwiches and appetizers. We started out with their fried green tomatoes and they were fabulous. My friend had the kale salad with poached pears, blackened chicken, feta cheese and pecans & it was excellent.

The entire restaurant is beautiful and I love how the kitchen is open on the main floor! The food is tasty and the drinks are yummy! Try the shrimp and grits or The Daily Fish Special! The roof top is also really nice too! A charming Southern restaurant!

My wife and I went home to Valdosta, GA to see family around my birthday this year. My mother took us to Steel Magnolias for my birthday dinner and it was amazing. First of all, it is downtown Valdosta, an area in my time there was pretty sketchy. Now in the evening it is booming with quaint bistros, cafes and... More
