Great food! Great service! Our server was Stephen - "the bearded guy" - who made an enjoyable meal even more pleasant! Our party enjoyed the turkey and dressing meal, the prime rib meal, and the stuffed trout along with a splendid pinot noir - all very tasty! The restaurant is in a gorgeous building on the grounds of Callaway overlooking... More

Definitely the best restaurant on the property but be prepared to pay! Very limited menu which may not appeal to everyone but the location, service and food quality made it an enjoyable evening. Full bar and nice wine selection available.

Food was fabulous - 15 people for dinner and they were reasonably fast - good selection - loved their pay one price and get appetizer, entree and dessert. Chicken was great, Skirt steak was fabulous, love the soup! Would pass on the creme brulee for dessert and go for the apple crumble.

When we have visited Callaway Gardens in the past, we were always frustrated because they didn't have a restaurant that had table service - always a buffet. Three visits ago we rediscovered the Gardens restaurant. On our two prior visits, the food was very good and so was the service. However on this visit, the service was friendly, but slow.... More

We all had the trout, exceptionally prepared and presented in elegant southern style. The atmosphere felt like being in a dining room of a fine home with live music being played. An unforgettable creme brûlée topped off the meal.

Callaway Gardens is nice, but sometimes you want to be spoiled a little. Gardens restaurant spoils you with good hospitality, friendly wait staff, good wine list, creative entrees and (this night) a beautiful sunset over the lake. The hangar steak was perfect, crab cakes delicious, and presentation was nice. Prices were fair for the quality of dining experience.

Our meal was fantastic. The service was lackluster for a fine dining experience. I would return, though.

I normally cut restaurants slack and am not terribly hard on them in a review. However, this one is a pass unless you want a view. Took FOREVER to receive our food and it was not anything beyond passably average once it did come. I would go somewhere else

This place has a great view and good food. We were visiting for a weekend and ate lunch and dinner here. The store in front was wonderful for window shopping with lots of novelty items, fresh jams, wine etc. The food in the restaurant was good and the portion sizes were just right. Not to big and not to small.... More

We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed dining at The Country Kitchen within The Callaway Gardens Country Store. Most people don't realize that it is one of our original restaurants - dating back to the 1950s. We are very appreciative of your kind words. And, we hope that you are able to visit again. It's a great place... More
