About the Restaurant

When Magnolias opened in 1990, a culinary renaissance ignited in Charleston, SC. Receiving accolades from diners and critics alike, the restaurant flourished and Charleston began to gain prominence as one of the nation’s leading gastronomic destinations.  Today, Magnolias continues to make history as a forerunner in upscale Southern cuisine.

With every dish, Executive Chef Don Drake blends traditional southern ingredients and cooking techniques with modern flair for an “uptown” presentation.  The soul of the South meets the spark of innovation in dishes such as the down south egg roll stuffed with collard greens, chicken, and Tasso ham, served with red pepper purée, spicy mustard sauce, and peach chutney; shellfish over grits with sautéed shrimp, sea scallops, lobster, creamy white grits, lobster butter sauce and fried spinach; and bourbon glazed porterhouse pork chop with okra and sweet corn fricassee, local black-eyed pea cakes and bacon-horseradish pan gravy.

Too Good for the "Before" Shot

Fresh on the Menu chefs know the importance of using fresh, Certified SC ingredients. It means their dishes look and taste so good, you’ll forget the ‘before’ picture to share with friends and just dig right in. That’s okay, we’re used to seeing empty plates.
