Have loved Callaway Gardens since childhood and love eating outside at the Gardens Restaurant. Hadn't been in quite a while and honestly didn't care if the food was good or not, because I love the view so much. Not to worry! The food was crazy...More

Good service and one of the best steaks I have ever had. We had a reservation, was seated and waited on promptly. It is a little pricey, but was definitely not disappointed in the food.

Usually, when a restaurant has a beautiful view, the food suffers. Not here! We enjoyed the sea bass and shrimp pasta. Both were excellent. We loved the setting on the porch so much that we lingered for creme brûlée and then French press coffee, something...More

Had reservations for 7:30 on a Wednesday. Though not busy, the service and food were excellent. A truly outstanding setting and everyone involved could not have been more accommodating. Truly a gem that should not be missed.

Kind of a stilted atmosphere with entrees limited and high priced. The ahi tuna was tasteless. Companions enjoyed sea bass, steak and a pasta dish. Do not get the key lime tart which was a gloppy pudding in a hard, tasteless crust.

Small menu, and we tried two appetizers and two mains. The description sounded better than the execution actually was. We enjoyed dressing up and being treated superbly by our server. The huge dining room is tastefully decorated and quiet, and there is a nice fireplace....More

Seated outside with a beautiful view of the golf course and the gardens. Our waiter was extremely attentive. Wine service was generous. Salmon was perfect. Cannot think how to improve on any of this!
