“Nice surprise for Us”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

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. I had the quiche and asparagus soup - very well prepared and very tasty. My husband had the tuna salad plate. He loved it and especially all the extra fresh fruit on the plate, The restaurant was busy, but the service was prompt. The price was very reasonable which was a plus. The decor is unique, but fun!

“A throwback to a past decade”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

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.

Thank you for your comments! We do have an atmosphere of times past, and we strive to have the relationships with our guests and the service levels reminiscent of days gone by.

I am sorry to hear that you did find your lasagna to be distinguishable. It is one of our most popular offerings, but I will revisit your comments with our kitchen staff to ensure they are following our recipe.

Thank you again!

Kind regards,
Amy Cox

“The Chicken Lavosh is a MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

“Service is Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

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.

.Katherine,

Thank you for your review. I would like to speak with you to better understand the details of your experience, as what's described is certainly disappointing and not consistent with our service model. We always strive for excellence, and your additional input would certainly help in that effort.

Please call me, or let me know how I can contact you.

Thank you again,
Amy Cox

“Covington's is ALWAYS Top Notch in Dining !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

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. The food is wonderful. I've never had anything at Covington's that wasn't fresh and delicious. My favorites are the Chicken Lavosh and also the Chicken Salad plate. Make sure you ask for one of their homemade cinnamon rolls!
