Porch, pre-dinner, had a lovely view and the meal we had was delicious. Fried Green Tomatoes were excellent.

Excellant food - salads, entrees, deserts, wine: great every time. Nice view of the lake and when the weather cooperates, eating outside on the back porch is very pleasant. Wait staff always first class.

Located with a beautiful view of the golf course & water. Can choose to sit outside on the patio or inside. For the hot months, best to sit inside as the patio becomes incredibly hot when the sun is setting. Very nice staff, food was mediocre. One of the two nicest restaurants in Pine Mountain, but not worth going back... More

This was our first visit to the Gardens. We were told by friends to go to this restaurant and we were not disspointed. Dinner was outstanding but worth every dollar. Will go back again when we visit Calloway.

This is very pricey but worth it. It is a perfect place for a nice romantic meal or, as was the case for us, a business dinner. An extensive wine list is available. I highly recommend the fried green tomato appetizer that has fresh mozzarella cheese, pesto, and balsamic vinegar, baby spinach, and salt cured bacon/ham. I should have stopped... More

This is actually a better than average restaurant. It is primarily a dinner restaurant. We went for lunch. Every one of the entress was a sandwich with some sort of bread that was served with potato chips. The only other entrée was a pasta dish. Even the house salad had croutons. There were not any entrée size salads. The food... More

Thank you for your post. The Gardens Restaurant is a wonderful dinner location. And, we suggest whenever you are dining in Callaway Gardens restaurant, to ask about special diet needs.

If you get the B&B it's ok...otherwise eat somewhere else. Overcooked potatoes, grits with a tough film, eggs were ok, bacon and sausages greasy. Gravy for biscuits cold. Pricey for the quality you get. Ruby is an excellent waiter....others act like they are doing you a favor.

This is one of the nicest facilities in the area, but it doesn't rival Atlanta restaurants. Wine list has no depth, and menu selections are limited, but we still enjoyed an evening with friends ......it just required scaling back our urban expectations. Beautiful location.
