Description: Tucked inside the Callaway Gardens Country Store(R), where picture windows reveal a breathtaking ridgetop view, the Country Kitchen specializes in down-home Southern dishes with a creative flair. Start your day with a heaping plate of smoked pork and eggs benedict, or enjoy a fried-chicken-and-vegetable combo for lunch or dinner - washed down, of course, with an ice-cold serving of sweet tea right out of a mason jar. Whatever you fancy, your taste buds are sure to be tickled at this Callaway institution.

“Food is better than the service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Our visit didn't start very well. We were seated by the window with its beautiful views. It was a good thing because we had to sit there for a long time before our server came. They were not that busy and had plenty of servers. When we got food, it was good. The woman in the country store where we paid was nice and very friendly, but first impressions are important.

“Vegetable Plate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I've been eating at the Country Kitchen for about 50 years. The food is always great and the service is friendly and fast. The vegetables were delicious as well as the biscuits, cornbread and muscadine preserves (which they always serve).

“Too bad the food doesn't live up to the location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

It sits on top of the hill in Pine Mountain. It has a Charming country store. It has an overpriced menu with mediocre food. It is such a shame. I remember eating here when I was a child. It used to be better than this.

“Good food terrible service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

While the food is good and atmosphere is nice, the service was terrible. The view was beautiful. The lady at the front was nice but our waitress was not interested in customer service or getting a tip. Give the restaurant a try but ask for a different waitress if you get the one who doesn't want to wait tables.

“Great for Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

After years of living in Georgia, we came back for a nostalgic visit to the Gardens, which are by the way out of this world. We stayed at the Calloway Inn and had breakfast here. Great way to start the day.
