Went with my co-worker and got the salmon. The price was average but it was pretty fast and it tasted great. I would go back again if I'm ever in the area.

We were on a trip and wanted to try the Steel Magnolias because of a recommendation. We didn't know they were closed on Mondays. Some locals told us about Covington's and it was such a nice surprise.

The menu (and décor) is likely to have not changed since the 1970s. My lasagna was not memorable in any way, however it did arrive to the table very hot.

Covington's is always a favorite. Reasonably priced. Great food. Nice atmosphere for meeting friends for lunch. I've never had anything there that wasn't good but the Chicken Lavosh is a favorite! The Chicken Salad plate with fresh fruit is also great.

We were with a large group, everyone pre-ordered two weeks before. They ran out our choices anyway! They did not have enough staff either and we had to wait forever, so the food was cold. This place is not cheap! Go somewhere else.

I eat out a LOT in Valdosta and I can say that Covington's is always one of my favorite places for lunch. The ownership is local so they have a vested interest in the success of their restaurant.

Good fresh food, home style cooking with a bit of class and wonderful desserts. Nice atmosphere. Ladies love this small restaurant. They also cater many functions in the area from small to extra large crowds. Always fresh and good.

I kept looking around this place expecting to see little old ladies with white gloves on eating their chicken salad and jello! Stopped here while traveling. Is in the downtown part of Valdosta, so I imagine they get a lot of foot traffic from the courthouse, etc. Food was tasty, but nothing that made me go "Wow." I had the... More

I had a high hopes for this place since it was recommended by a friend. At lunch I tried the grilled chicken sandwich. It was good but nothing over the top great about it;.
