“The food was good, just a little dry for lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

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;. The service was okay and the sweet teas was quite nice. I don't know if I'd recommend this place, but if you want a nice little lunch that may be a little overally priced, then try it.

“Great Food, great staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

We were having Covington's cater our daughter's wedding and stopped by for lunch and to meet with Sue Cox-Owner. Not only was our lunch great but Covington's also did a super job for the wedding. We were so pleased with the food, the service, and the great staff provided us. Also, Sue Cox is wonderful to work with and delivers more than promised. I would highly recommend Covington's for your next event or just to have lunch. Thanks Sue and crew.....your the best!

Excellent food and friendly service. The Lobster Bisque Soup is the BEST I've ever had.

“A Hidden Gem Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

This is a little restaurant tucked away in downtown Valdosta. They specilize in just soups, salads and sandwiches....but the atmosphere inside is awsome, warm, cozy, romantic and quiet. The decor is elegant, with white table cloths....it looks very expensive....but prices are very very reasonable. The service is outstanding and the food is super. "Their crab soup" is the best you will ever taste. Tip: they are open for lunch only, but it is well worth the trip. The name is Covington's.
