Even though we are part-time locals (owning a vacation home on Lake Blackshear), we don't usually go for formal dining at the lake. However, since it was our anniversary, we went to Daphne Lodge for an awesome dinner. I had the filet and my husband had the New York Strip. Both were fantastic and cooked to perfection. We chose the... More

We picked this place for date night since so many people recommended it and it did not disappoint! We started off with the bacon topped fried oysters. They were really good and had a great flavor. The salads came and they serve it with a selection of homemade dressings. Blue cheese, ranch, thousand island and a vinegarette. The Ranch and... More

We were traveling through Georgia and stopped here because of the reviews. The decor was like Grandma's house, literally, it looked like my grandma decorated this place. Very cute. I ordered the shrimp and grits, the shrimp was yummy but the whole plate looked liked it had been made hours ago and just warmed up. Same with my husband's twice... More

This is a family owned and operated restaurant. The service is friendly and professional. There is a home town feel in the air and lots of laughter. The food is very good and a plesant surprise considering this place is in the country. We had an appetizer that was off the chain good! My Grouper was done to perfection! I... More

Daphne Lodge is the 'goto place' when my wife and I need to have a fine dining experience near home where we know we won't be disappointed. Daphne has great food but its so much more than just eating a meal. The hospitality, ambience, and casual un-rushed feeling that you enjoy is unmatched.

Thought I would splurge a little and go for the French cut bone in ribeye for $41...yep...$41. What I got was a steak so full of fat and gristle that I could not eat it. Even trying to cut through the meat with a steak knife was a struggle. I did get about 4 or 5 bites that were nice... More

Had nice meal that would have been perfect except for the family of 15 adults(?) who were exceptionally loud, after they left half way through our meal it was spectacular. Great Service. We shared the Fried Mushrooms and Cauliflower appetizer which was great, not at all greasy. The wife had the whole Crispy, Dressed Flounder with Apricot and Shallot Sauce... More

Cute, cute, cute! Nestled in the trees this little restaurant is a gem. Front porch with swings makes this just adorable. We had a sweet young girl wait on us and she couldn't have been nicer. I had broiled grouper cooked perfect and very fresh. My partner had fried oysters that were large juicy and tast. Hush puppies came with... More

We chose the perfect place to celebrate our 25th anniversary dinner. This was such a comfortable place with excellent food. The service was fantastic. The host treated everyone that walked into the place as his best friends. He also had a story for each of us.
