Georgia Mountaintop Restaurant

Great Views and Nice Gift Shop with Homemade Preserves. The Muscadine preserves are awesome! The food was good enough but lacked consistency with portions and fried items were a little too fried. Otherwise, a great stop!

The food and atmosphere were wonderful. My husband had the pork porterhouse, and I had the rainbow trout. They were both cooked to perfection. We will definitely be back.

We went twice during our stay, a little more on the high end side with price and maybe not very kid friendly, but excellent food!

We ate here one night as part of a group meeting that took place at a local hotel. Since we were such a large group, we only had a few choices for each stage of meal. Everyone loved the food except for one of the appetizers was a little too exotic. They have a nice view of the local surroundings... More

Great Food - Service was not consistent. We were not in a rush but the meal did not flow well - we got our appetizer in a normal amount of time then it was over 30 minutes until the entrees arrived, and yes, they were a bit cold. The Pork Chop and the Steak were well seasoned and excellent. Good... More

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

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
