Down South roll

Down South roll

Magnolias has been serving Charleston indulgent, quality Southern fare for longer than almost anyone else in town, but even after all this time, the East Bay Street staple still deserves a spot on your to-do list. Homestyle standards like buttermilk fried chicken with biscuits and gravy are must-haves, but dishes like the sweet chili rubbed ahi tuna and braised beef short ribs make sure there’s something for everyone on Executive Chef Kelly Franz’s menu. Magnolias’ staying-power is a testament to its innovative twists on classic Southern flavors, like the fried green tomato appetizer with white cheddar and caramelized onion grits, country ham, and tomato chutney. Around lunchtime visitors can expect plenty of wallet-friendly soups, salads, and sandwiches under $15. —Sam Spence (Dish, Summer 2018)
