The atmosphere is great. It's obvious that the owners have spent a lot of time and thought on it. I had the catfish which is touted as the house specialty and one of the top 10 in the country. I was underwhelmed. The fish were small and hard to separate from the bone. Wouldn't do it again. If it weren't... More

Excellent, tender filet that doesn't require a knife to eat! Had a business dinner there with three associates and all of us loved our meal. We started with the fried pickles and blue cheese chips. The house salad is served on a plate and is large with a nice assortment of offerings on it. They serve with a choice of... More

We met some out of town friends here for dinner and were absolutely delighted with the food, atmosphere, and the service. Even when a thunderstorm knocked out the electricity for about 30 minutes, the staff never even flinched. They continued cooking and serving the food in the dim candlelight and never lost their good cheer. We will absolutely come back... More

Had dinner here while visiting my brother in Cordele. Had been here years ago (15??), and remembered it as a great place. My wife had the Filet Mignon, while I ordered the Virginia Ham and Quail with cheese grits (best grits ever). My sister-in-law had the Shrimp and Grits, while my brother had the She-crab soup as an appetizer. Can't... More

I was on business, but I could see this as a very romantic night out with my hubby. The atmosphere is candlelight, cabinish and elegant. The food was amazing. Get the blue cheese loaded homemade potato chips for your appetizer or crab claws. I had shrimp scampi with steamed broccoli and salad. My co worker had the fried flounder with... More

There was a review from TripAdvisor and because of it we chose to eat there. We were not disappointed. We were... More

When out of town we try local restaurants. We had such a wonderful experience at Daphne Lodge. The restaurant was super clean and the food was amazing. I had the ham and Qual- the pork was a little salty but still very good. MUST TRY!
