Magnolia Grill sizzles up an eclectic menu of Cajun, American, and seafood dishes with flavorful twists rivaling Chubby Checker’s Baskin-Robbins concept album. Signal your entrance into gastronomic game-play with an appetizer of fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade ($7.95), then subdue Creole cravings with a bowl of the gumbo or bisque of the day. A gauntlet of filling entrees awaits, including pulled pork and pepper jack paninis ($8.95) and grilled shrimp quesadilla wraps ($8.95), as well as a selection of beers and sodas to grease throat slides. Seafood lovers can populate their stomaquariums with specialties including the crab cake-topped gulf fish ($15.95) and Cajun catfish fry ($12.95). Contrasting the rustic-inspired menu is Magnolia Grill's casual, modern décor with soft overhead lighting and bold colored walls, giving starved eyes an alternative to watching mouths happily gorge themselves.
- Familiar is right—populating Magnolia Grill's eclectic menu are a collection of Baton Rouge favorites. Fried green tomatoes appear on the appetizer menu alongside roasted garlic hummus with grilled pita bread. There's chicken shawarma, hamburger steaks and buffalo wings. – 225
- Adding this to the list of restaurants we frequent. We had chicken Parmesan and it was good. We asked for extra sauce when we ordered and were glad for it. – Judy Neal, Urbanspoon
Magnolia Grill and Bar
Ruby-red and canary-yellow walls, soft lighting, and a flat-screen television create a vibrant atmosphere for Magnolia Grill and Bar's spin on comforting Southern and Cajun dishes. Chefs harness the natural sweetness of fresh fish from the Gulf, lump crabmeat, and jumbo shrimp to craft hearty entrees, which also include soul-soothing classics such as chicken-fried steak smothered in white gravy and slow-roasted pulled pork zestified with hickory sauce. Appetizers of Magnolia bread sprinkled with parmesan cheese or fried green tomatoes paired with shrimp rémoulade jump-start digestive engines, and frosty brews from Abita, Corona, and Heineken irrigate throats without digging a series of ditches that leads to the kitchen sink.
