The catfish and the liver and onions are absolutely to die for! This place has true southern cooking and the bread pudding is out of this world.

My husband and I love going here for real "soul food". We usually order the gumbo with cornbread muffins. The service was great everytime. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I found this place after staying in san Diego with some friends this past weekend. I ordered the smothered pork chops, white rice and collard greens. My friends had the shrimp po boy, fried red snapper, fried oysters, yams and mac and cheese. We were all satisfied with our meals. This was a great find and i added the number to my call list. I will definately be back. I am from Atlanta and the food here reminds me of "back home."

i ordered smothered pork chops and they were delicious. i also ordered mac n cheese and collard greens and they were all very fresh and good. the only drawback is that it is a little pricey but other than that, very good food.

My wife, my 8 month old son and I stopped by for the first time on a saturday night . My son loved it, every one said hi to him. And they even played the sax and clarinet right in front of him. We loved it too, service was great food was great. Nice big place really roomy. We felt like we stepped out of San Diego. Will go there again maybe next time just my wife and I.

I stopped in here one evening after some friends recommended the place to me. I was not disappointed. Had a great happy hour with a jazz group playing and delicious food. Love the meatloaf and the crawfish bisque. Waitresses really do a great job of serving the customers too! I will be back.

Magnolias is conveniently located in Market Creek Plaza which is a much needed fabulous new edition to this part of town. It easily accessible to the trolley if you are taking the short trip from downtown Gaslamp.

I have dined here on 4 separate occasions and the food is truly delicious. The first dish that I tried here was the Fried Pork Chops. You get a choice of sides with the dinners, so elected to have the Macaroni and Cheese, and Hush Puppies. My meal out in less than 15 minutes but the freshly baked from corn muffins kept me occupied while I waited.

The meal was exceptionally delicious! Flavors upon flavors. You know the kind of food you get when your back home. The Hush Puppies were the stand out - warm, sweet, with a touch of spice. Honestly I had not had a recipe like this before. The pork chops were very good, although they are not my favorite dish from here.

Other dishes that I have tried are Jambalaya which came with flavorful sausage, dirty rice, and an array of vegetables. Almost better than my grandmas! I have also tried the ribs which is smoked in a smoker overnight and then brushed with the families BBQ sauce (This is my favorite). Lastly I have also tried their fried chicken, which again is a flavor that is only rivaled by kitchens in the deep south.

The environment has a very comfortable and inviting feel. The dining room has plenty of space to spread out, and there is even a private dining area for groups. There outside dining available as well. In addition they also cater, so you can bring this good food to your next event, just in case you can't find the location.

The servers were friendly and knowledgeable and full of suggestions. They also have a full bar which will help you unwind. The only thing is their wine list is not that extensive. But who cares the food here is truly wonderful, and very affordable.

Last night, we went to have dinner at Magnolias restaurant on Euclid Avenue and had a most disappointing and unpleasant experience. First of all, the place was very big and located right next to a busy grocery store, but the restaurant was deserted on Saturday night (only two occupied tables besides ours). Second, the appetizer (Buffalo wings) was served at room temperature and we had to order a new dish. Third, my girlfriend ordered pork chops but mashed potatoes were nowhere to be found on the menu. (Does anybody else know a restaurant serving Southern food, but the chef does not know how to make mashed potatoes?) Fourth, the sauce that came with mashed potatoes was watered down and tasted horrible. Needless to say, my girlfriend returned the food and walked out without any dinner. I had catfish, which was unevenly cooked and tasteless. Most importantly, the owner was rude, very arrogant, and clearly did not have any customer service skills. She said: ?If the waitress gave you a wrong impression about the dish (pork chops), that?s a problem I have to straighten out later with her. You should have read the menu because I wrote the menu and that?s the way I cook.? Our waitress was very nice and polity, but that is absolutely the only positive thing in this restaurant. When you can cook better tasting food at home or get food with more flavor from take-out, why go here and pay a premium price?
