Anniversary/birthday weekend surprise discovery! The food was exquisite...crab cakes and steak. Yes. Homemade salad dressings. The service impeccable, though reservations are preferred, we were early and the owner graciously accommodated us. Love that southern hospitality... Very nice evening...in every way.

This is absolutely the most wonderful secret place in Cordele, Ga. The charming outside looks like a doll house. Go inside and the atmosphere is so welcoming and cozy. It was cool outside and a wonderful fire was going. The food was so wonderful, there are no words that will be good enough to describe it. From the homemade salad... More

I have seen this place for years but have always been passing by before they open on the way to or from Atlanta. This changed last weekend and we were all blown away by this gem. Between the six of us we were able to try just about everything on the menu. Great appetizers and do not miss the crab... More

We made reservations for 8 pm. We arrived at 7:50 ish and were immediately seated at our table. The service was fast, the food was really good. We ate shrimp and grits as a meal and " the blue chips " as an appetizer . Both were great !

Went to meet family and found myself in a quaint, comfortable cabin with a lot of other folks. Food was excellent. Service was good, unhurried.

An unexpected little treasure with good food and friendly people. Not a fancy atmosphere but the food and people make up for that!

Daphne's is the personification of a nice Southern restaurant. It's charming and the food is good. Don't plan on spending the evening. They like to turn their tables over. Be sure to make a reservation.

Excellent meal! Wife had the fried shrimp, salad and twice baked potato. Every thing on her plate was good and she gets a check+* for cleaning her plate. They made a plate for me that is not on the menu, both quail in gravy and fried catfish with salad (homemade dressings-they are great), slaw and cheese grits and tomato gravy.... More

Located off Hwy 280, one would never expect this cozy lodge to have such a family ambiance and such great selection of gourmet food. The service is very customer oriented and one feels immediately at home. The restaurant seems to be a local attraction, which is always a very good sign. Highly recommended for a nice romantic and relaxing dinner... More
