We ate there last week, and as usual it was great! Over the years that we have eaten at Daphene, it has always been consistently good food and good service. Family run and they evidently have a great kitchen staff as well. I like the fried catfish dinner that comes with grits, slaw, and hushpuppies! The wait staff is always... More

Driving home from florida we decided to stop at exit 101 for the night. At Daphne Lodge we had a great meal complete with southern hospitality.

I have heard about this little restaurant for years, but never had an occasion to try it. Given its remote rural location, I was not expecting a real special dining experience, but boy was I surprised. We were greeted at the door like family and they seated us right away (we had reservations). The service was excellent and the food... More

Looking for something beyond the standard chain fare, we picked this place out of the hat based on the listings in Trip Advisor, AAA, and the hotel restaurant guide. About 8 miles or so west of town, nestled in the woods. Midweek in October is not the most active time so it was not crowded. The staff was welcoming and... More

Oh boy! This is one to yell about. This was one of the best meals we have had. We ordered two aps, crab fingers and crab soup. I have no idea what crab fingers were, they are teeny little crab pices like straws with a small small tast of crab. Very good. The soup was a cream and butter and... More

I got taken to this restaurant for my birthday and Christmas and it was so romantic for me and my husband. We enjoyed the food, quietness of it and it even has a place where parties can be held. There was a church party going on in the other room. Loved it and will go back.

The signature catfish are excellent as is everything I have tried there. Deserts are also good. Great value. One of my favorite spots in South Georgia.

Daphne Lodge is one of the best restaurants in South Georgia. Try the Parmesan Grouper along with the Maytag Blue Cheese chips or fried dill pickles. The smothered quail is another one of my favorites. Sonny is a great host and will take good care of you at his pride and joy feeding spot near Lake Blackshear.

The wait can sometimes be an issue. The chairs are not comfortable. The food is fantastic. Great choices from a full Southern menu. I have eaten here on several occasions an will continue to eat here on every visit to South Georgia.
