Lovely place. Wonderful service. All food is excellent. Would recommend a chicken dish or two. And yes, at night I bumped my truck into one of those huge pine trees. Will go many more times..

Out from Cordele but well worth the drive the owners great you and make sure that your visit is enjoyable. The food is quite good and they have a decent wine list. We went on a Thursday night and the place was crowded with both locals and folks from out of town. The menu has a lot of variety with... More

We went on a Tuesday evening and they were out of tables. Said it was unusual but after tasting the food, we could see why. Don't miss it. Had cat fish and even though they had bone they were delicious. My husband had the filet and said it was really good and cooked just right.

My classmates and I met here for a Christmas dinner last December. We booked late, but they were very accommodating. The room was beautifully decorated with a lighted Christmas tree giving a wonderful ambience to the room. We put our gifts to exchange under the tree and had a sumptuous meal. Everything was delightful, The only negatives were the table... More

Very pleasant dining experience. You have to try the Blue Cheese chip appetizer, I don't typically care for Blue Cheese and this was delicious. Dinner for 3 with appetizer, bottle of wine, entrees and dessert was under $70.

While visiting Cordele on business, I was looking for a non-chain type restaurant for dinner. I saw the reviews on the Daphne Lodge so I decided to drive the 10 miles out of town to check it out. I am so glad I did! Very delightful restaurant off the beaten path. The owner put me at his best table which... More

About 15 of us went to Daphne for a surprise birthday party and it was great. The server that helped us was so kind and helpful! The whole staff helped us keep the party a surprise until the very last second. The server was great about splitting up the bill in 15 separate checks. Food was good. I ordered the... More

Love this place. Great southern charm. When we lived in the area, we often went to this restaurant and had a wonderful experience every time. Excellent staff from the owners to the cooks.
