Given the incredible scenery overlooking the lake and one if the golf courses, you'd expect great food and it did not disappoint. The flat iron steak was excellent and the rainbow trout was very tasty. We had 15 and had good service and a most pleasant experience.

The service was great. We went on a Thursday night in June. It was not very crowded. My husband and I both got a salad to start. It was very fresh. My husband got the salmon and I had the crab cakes. The salmon was on the small side but it was the best salmon that I have ever tried.... More

We were so looking forward to dining here! Fine dining.. in a beautiful rustic location overlooking the most breathtaking views you can imagine. But what a disappointment! The food.... everything... was absolutely horrible. The steak, fish, shrimp.... so disappointing. Pricey too... and so not worth it! You can go to the bar downstairs and still get to see the view...

This is a very nice restaurant that serves really good upper end food. We ate here during our stay and really enjoyed it. Everything was hot and fresh and they had a wonderful wine list. Definitely recommend trying this place.

While on a biking trip through Callaway Gardens, decided to experience a treat and dine at the Gardens Restaurant. Menu was reasonable but the food was great. Wait staff was prompt and the view was pretty fantastic over the golf course. Down stairs was a shop with ice cream sandwiches which were perfect for our appetites.

The Southern hospitality and the great views were enjoyed. The food was not fancy but very good. There is a small country-like atmosphere about the Restaurant and we enjoyed purchasing some wonderful wild grape jam... fun and good place for lunch!

As every time I visited since childhood, this is hands down the most wonderful restaurant at Callaway (and one of my favorite of all time). The view, the service, and the food are consistently exceedingly high quality. I love the unique food combinations, and they manage this while remaining true to both southern heritage and dedication to local organic and... More
