“The best of Lake Blackshear!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Daphne's is the ONLY place to have dinner in Cordele! Wonderful owners and staff, extensive wine and beer list, and the food is all homemade and so so delicious! Five stars for this timeless place!

“WOW!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was , by far, the best place on the trip.These people know how to cook and how to decorate. The place is gorgeous. Not near town, but worth the drive. Great service also. Must do.

“EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

This is one of he best meals our family has ever had! We started with the fried pickles and onion rings as appetizers. Hands down - BEST ONION RINGS EVER!!! The fried pickles were excellent too. The salads came next and were large portions and not just your basic lettuce and tomato variety! The homemade dressings were awesome too. After that, the real excellence! The filets were fork tender, no need for a knife. The NY strip was huge and the catfish fried to perfection. We drove an hour, it was worth it, and will do it again! Also, the southern hospitality was great too.

“Southern food with warm southern charm”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We went here for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day and a birthday. We had a reservation but got there substantially early and the owner didn't miss a beat and seated us immediately even though it was a busy Friday night. It was obvious that there were plenty of locals there, but we were made to feel like family. The food was excellent starting with the She Crab soup, the salad and the catfish we both ordered. The sides were great, as well. We were seated in the side room near the bar (which wasn't open) which was nice since the main dining room is rather noisy when the place is as crowded as it was. By big city standards the prices are quite reasonable.
