Thank you! Please come back again for lunch or dinner. This was our first Tour of Hones since we purchased the restaurant. We were told by staff it was the busiest in years. We really try to make every dining experience a very pleasant one. Thanks again and come back soon. More

We went on a Saturday night with some friends. Some of them had been here previously. A very unique place lots of history and nice warm feel. Several of us had the steak special. The service was good, and food was great. I would certainly keep this place on my list of places to stop again.

We're staying at the Fitzgerald Hotel on the square in awarding ton, Ga. The Jockey Club is across the square. The restaurant is very nice and cozy with maroon walls and fox and hounds art. Service was good - attentive but not always there. The food was good. I had the grilled mahi mahi special. It was alright. My wife... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am so sorry your visit was not pleasant. You never know how to staff in a small town. We have added another waitperson and another chef on Saturdays. I really hope you decide to give the restaurant another try. More

From the moment we entered this establishment and enquired if they catered for a customer with special eating needs were were met with the utmost courtesy and a delicious meal, catering for all the diners in our party...

Just at lunch at the Jockey Club. Under new ownership it is now open for lunch every day. The menu was varied and reasonably priced. The club salad was very good. Will visit again.

We went here Saturday for dinner and were disappointed to find that the restaurant had a new owner. They did not have an alcohol permit. We were planning on sitting at the bar to watch football. The place was pretty empty. We decided not to take a chance and went somewhere else. I hope they get it together and keep... More

Hosts were so genial and welcoming, and the food was first-class! It is a lovely restaurant - a gem hidden away in a tiny historic town! Gotta try it when you visit!
