Lowcountry: Opened in 1990, this Charleston classic is a beloved favorite for many Holy City locals, as it is consistently delivering top-notch lowcountry dishes as well as attentive and welcoming service. Seafood dishes are a highlight of the Magnolias menus, with such items as Lowcountry Bouillabaisse, Spicy Shrimp and Sausage over grits, Blackened Catfish, and Buttermilk Fried Chicken Breast serving as authentic representatives of lowcountry style cuisine. For a cheaper Magnolias dining option, opt to visit this East Bay Street restaurant for lunch or Sunday brunch; each of these menus shares at least a few options with the regular dinner menu.

Brunch: Once the site of the Charleston's original Customs House, Magnolias is a downtown restaurant intent on showcasing its deep Southern roots. Chef Don Drake's commitment to adding worldly spice to old Southern flavors sets Magnolias apart from all other coastal fine dining. The modern presentation of homegrown dishes like the Down South Egg Roll, or the Buttermilk Fried Chicken, cleverly appeals to all tastes. Entrees such as the Shellfish Over Grits, which introduces lobster to traditional Shrimp 'n Grits, are accompanied with sides of Carolina Dirty Rice, Creamed Corn, and Collard Greens. Dinner reservations recommended; Sunday Brunch offered 10 a.m. - 3:45 p.m.
