Visit Magnolias on East Bay Street in downtown Charleston. It specializes in contemporary American cuisine but it has not forgotten its Low Country roots. The place specializes in shellfish, pies, cookies, puddings, salads and crab cakes. You will also be mighty pleased if you order the fried chicken or its bouillabaisse. The place is well decked up and despite being an upscale address it has an affordable menu. There is a distinct flavor in its fried green tomatoes or the grilled meatloaf. Magnolias is clearly not your average fare, even by the standards of Charleston. It is needless to point out that you wouldn’t go wrong if you opt for seafood.
