Love this Place!

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... read 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!

Daphne's was a great place for my group to eat. They were visiting Tifton on a conference and we received a recommendation from someone to try this place. Best decision EVER. We drove 45 minutes each way to eat at this establishment and I did not hear one gripe about it. The food was excellent and plentiful. The staff was... More

There are good franchises near the interstate in Cordele, but do yourself a favor and drive a quick and easy 13 minutes outside of town to the Daphne Lodge. In a wooded country setting, it's a wonderfully decorated family restaurant with excellent food, a good wine and beer selection, and friendly, attentive service. The menu is broad for such a...

Lovely on a rainy evening just outside the park. My wife had the signature fried catfish and I had the smothered quail. Both were excellent. Attentive and welcoming servers. The owner greeted us at the door. A very nice, comfortable setting with very good food.

Tasty, friendlily southern hospitality at its best! My family and I plan and time our drive to and from Florida to make sure it includes a stop at the lodge. Even my daughter who normally won't touch fish can't get enough of their southern fried cat fish - hit you need to eat it with your fingers. Their deep fried... More

Wish we'd found this place three years ago; can't imagine anything better in Cordele. Trying to be good, we had both types of grouper & they were wonderful; baked might be a bit better. Salad was good with a nice choice if homemade dressings. Even the steamed broccoli was good. Key lime pie was really good. The reminder of our... More

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
