    MMMMM! The liver is amazing, tender and juicy and smothered onions ike my Mother made! Everything I've tried was tasty and decidedly southern in flavor. The portions are enormous.

    Magnolia's is the gem of the African-American district in San Diego. Fine Creole, Southern soul food dining. Very tastey, and has that down-home flava.

    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. Count on it.

    Bessie Johnson is the owner of Magnolia's. I asked our waiter if I could be introduced and Ms. Johnson graciously came by our table. I said "Ms. Johnson, thanks so much for making such a great place for us to come and eat. This is the kind of food I grew up eating. Makes me feel like home." Bessie said "That is exactly the kind of food I was trying to create here." She graciously allowed a picture to be taken with me. Bessie and her husband Charles Johnson opened this great San Diego restaurant back in 2005. I highly recommend you give it a try. Warm, friendly, delicious food, just like being home.

    I am home! Finally someone who can do Creole cooking right! And right here in *Da Hood* instead of way across town in some trendy neighborhod pretneiding to be Southern/Creole/Cajun. I can't tell you exactly what to order, but I am mighty partial the their liver and onions sauteeed in butter.

    If you like a good home cooked meal, this is the place for you. Everything from fried chicken to meat loaf and my personal favorite, the crawfish bisque. Great service and very affordable prices.

    Very good eat'n

    The BBQ Shrimp plate is beyond description. The other food is good too, but man oh man, that BBQ Shrimp is somp'n else! My wife likes the shrimp in the casing - says it tastes better.... I like it already pealed ($2 more, but well worth it). Everything I have eaten here was good! (I don't know why I found them under "steaks" instead of BBQ or Southern or Cajun, all of which would seem more likely categories for this delightful place).

    Souther style cajun cooking is delicious and Magnolias is a place where you can get some of it. Good place to bring a group of friends if you're all craving it.

    Great upscale southern Creole/Cajun fod in the heart of the African-American community in San Diego. Finally, southern/soul food where southerners live! get the Bayou Sampler for an appetizer; it feeds 4 people. Mac n Cheese, catfish, Collard greens, on and on!

    A Southern Treat
    mini47 (1 review)
    9/27/2007

    I went with my family and we shared the Bayou Sampler, the $25 appetizer, it was a great way to begin our meal and cost less than buying a bunch of appetizers about $6 per person. My son had the gumbo, it was amazing. My husband ventured into catfish territory, hot, crisp, mouthwatering bliss. I feasted on the fried chicken, it lives up to its reputation.The collard greens, yams, and red beans left me aching for a trip back to visit my mother. My daughter tried the chicken and sausage jambalaya spicy goodness, but maintained the highest flavor. We also tried the sweet potato pie as well as the peach cobbler, OUTSTANDING. My meal overall was great. We will be dining there again soon.

    Magnolia's has slipped: They recently changed their menu,for the worst. The meatloaf, a home cooked staple for all southern restaurants, is now gone. Along with it, the fried seafood plate, which is now a $25 appetizer, which makes it the most expensive appetizer I have ever seen. The food overall is very good. Waiting staff can be improved. Bring back the meatloaf.

    Good Southern Food With A Universal Touch!

    The food at Magnolias is varied, interesting and tasty! The fried chicken is seasoned to a delicious crispiness. The Catfish is also Mama cooked good and faithfull to down home cooking. I was totally impressed with the Fried Okra! The owners Mr. & Mrs. Johnson are nice people who care about ensuring their customers have a good dining experience. The diversity of the customers who walk through the door is a testament that Magnolia's food is yummy cosmopolitan!
