“Disappointing...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We have been here several times before while staying on the property. Both meals were disappointing and not up to the standards we remember. Least memorable filet I have ever had...too much Boursin and not much flavor. I would not recommend. My husband's pork chop was tender, but there was too much sauce. the truffle Mac and cheese sounded great, but the crust was so heavy it was hard to taste anything. The service was pleasant and the view nice, as always. However, the Gardens was part of the appeal of the trip down, and now we won't be so inclined to make it down expecting a special meal.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Great service, delicious food, reasonable wine, a beautiful view from the veranda. I have to have gluten free food, and the chef prepared wonderful scallops and modified the sauce for me.

“Made a Special Occasion even more special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

I took my parents back to Georgia for a visit. We'd lived there for many years and Calloway Gardens was a favorite with us. We went so many times I can't count them all. After a day touring the gardens, we had dinner here and it is one of those occasions I'll never forget. Good food, good service and a unique venue. What a wonderful evening.
