We ate dinner with a party of five and the meal began with promise with the appetizers and from there down hill in terms of food quality and service. Three of our party ordered steaks, and two of them arrived completely cold. One party ordered the pork and it was cold as well. Not just "not warm", but completely and... More

The food was average... tasty but nothing spectacular. The atmosphere is well worth the table! There is also a nice giftshop with homemade preserves... Got a LARGE jar of Muscadine Grape Preserves.... ahhhh, the best!

Consistently good food with a beautiful view. This is our "treat" restaurant when we go to Callaway. A little above $$$ what we would pay for a large family group but everyone enjoys it so it is a yearly "treat".

If you want a nice night out for a special occasion this is the best place in Callaway Gardens. The chef has a seasonal menu with unique and perfectly prepared items. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, pecan encrusted brie, tender scallop and flat iron steak dinners. Trying the unique flavored ice creams and pana cotta dessert are a must.... More

We had an amazing meal here during our stay at Callaway Gardens. The food was fantastic, well prepared and presented and had phenomenal flavors. I was expecting a nice dinner, but this definitely exceeded our expectations. The menu is small, but well designed, and amongst the 6 of us, we had 4 of the main entrees, which were all amazing....

mthomtech, Thank you for such an amazing review! We try to keep the menu in line with the freshest ingredients available, so it does tend to have fewer selections than most. We change it as the seasons change, so we hope you to return again soon to see our fall selections! Sincerely, Geoffrey Murray More

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here. The service was good and we were pleasantly surprised how delicious our meal was. I had salmon that was slightly overcooked but still had wonderful flavor & served with petite vegetables. My husband ordered the 12 ounce Ribeye. Perfectly cooked tender and juicy. We shared bread pudding-one of our favorites and... More

While in the area for a family reunion, we spent a lovely evening dining the the Gardens to celebrate one couple's anniversary. The food and service were both excellent, and the surroundings were very nice. I understand that the building was the site of the clubhouse at one point.

The Gardens provides some of the finest dining to be had in the area, so we naturally chose it to celebrate my daughter's 26th birthday. We had dinner on a warm stormy Saturday evening, but chose to sit outside to enjoy the gorgeous lake/gardens views. Our hostess, Kelly, suggested a table set back from the railing (in case it rained)... More

Before you read any further, please note that there are several restaurants located in and around the Callaway Gardens property. Many of them are associated with Callaway Gardens, yet are easily confused due to similar names (ex: The Gardens Restaurant at Callaway Gardens vs. The Plant Room or Vineyard Green at Mountain Creek Inn). Many of the poor reviews include... More
