Owner: Vicky Stainback
A unique family owned and operated Eatery and Gift Shop with a fun story behind it! Southern Magnolia Eatery is located in a 1937 Depression era home, with the original servant’s quarters and greenhouse still in tact. The lunch menu is always homemade, from scratch, ranging from the hearty "Real Man" meal to soups, salads, and sandwiches for the lighter appetite. When you eat at Southern Magnolia Eatery you step back in time for a delicious and fabulous experience. You can even dine in the beautiful garden and under the very old pecan trees, when Mother Nature cooperates.
Southern Magnolia Eatery is here to make your special occasion a special memory! The lovely house can be rented at night and on weekends for intimate weddings, showers, birthdays, memorial gatherings and more.
Vicky feels we are here for such a short time that we need to make the best of each new day. Her business card says it all - Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much! Southern Magnolia Eatery caters to anyone who is looking for a nice, unique place to eat lunch. Their customers come first with every visit through an upbeat, friendly staff! Southern Magnolia Eatery has received accolades in both travel books and magazines for their superior comfort food. Come dine with Vicky and step back in time when there was rest for the soul, she ’ll make you feel right at home with her extra special touches.

The rest of the story…
Fancy’s Run Gift Shop started many years ago in a room of Vicky’s house, then in various other locations, until opening at the present location more than 3 years ago. Hurtling many challenges for almost 1 full year before opening the doors, Fancy’s Run now carries signed sports items, hand crafted jewelry, candles, Christian books and the list goes on...
Vicky and her husband of 30 years named their homestead Fancy’s Run long before the gift shop. Named for a most amazing dog that was born under their house, Fancy. Vicky has some wonderful stories about that dog. If you get a chance ask Vicky about Fancy, she lights up even more!
