I was not impressed although it wasn't bad. My steak was OK. The shrimp scampi was really good. The fried pickles were the best. I think your paying for the history.

I have been to Daphne's lodge a number of times over the years, and it is always a solid meal. The oyster appetizer is delicious. The salads are fresh and the home made dressings are excellent. The entrees are always well done and the bread is delicious. If you are in the area, Daphne's lodge is a must. Get reservations... More

We have enjoyed Daphne Lodge for years as a couple and as a part of large parties and have never had a bad meal there. The cuisine consists mostly of seafood and steaks along with some other choices. Several dishes are prepared with a tasty, Southern flare. It is owned by a lovely older couple who know the true meaning... More

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
