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.

Consistently excellent food served in a little cottage full of southern charm. I have eaten at Daphne's for years and have never been disappointed. They know what they do well and they have stuck with it.

Of course after reading reviews we had to start off with onion rings as appetizer. Quite frankly paired with a cold beer I should have stopped there. Perfectly battered and sweet. But we had to try the specialty...catfish. 3 very large whole fish, crisp and flakey delish served with ok slaw and hush puppies and above average creamy cheese grits.... More

Daphne's is the ONLY place to have dinner in Cordele! Wonderful owners and staff, extensive wine and beer list, and the food is all homemade and so so delicious! Five stars for this timeless place!

This was , by far, the best place on the trip.These people know how to cook and how to decorate. The place is gorgeous. Not near town, but worth the drive. Great service also. Must do.

This is one of he best meals our family has ever had! We started with the fried pickles and onion rings as appetizers. Hands down - BEST ONION RINGS EVER!!! The fried pickles were excellent too. The salads came next and were large portions and not just your basic lettuce and tomato variety! The homemade dressings were awesome too. After... More

We went here for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day and a birthday. We had a reservation but got there substantially early and the owner didn't miss a beat and seated us immediately even though it was a busy Friday night. It was obvious that there were plenty of locals there, but we were made to feel like family. The food... More

We ate at Daphne Lodge after riding the train in Cordele, Ga. We were staying at The Winsdor in Americus. This place was awesome! I am a Mississippi girl but have lived in Georgia for 24 years and it's hard to find good catfish here....but finally!!!! A restaurant that has amazing catfish and not greasy! My husband had the oysters... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a great dinner at Daphne's. This was my first experience here but my wife has dined here three or four times. My wife ordered the only thing she has ever ordered here. She loves the catfish which comes with cheese grits and she loves the hush puppies. We also ordered onion rings... More
