Went for the Seafood Buffett and they no longer offer crab legs or oysters. The prime rib was tough, no flavor.

No advance was given that they had removed these items from the buffet. Prime rib is normally good but it was horrible.

Way over priced for the poor quality food. Will not go back.

Mother’s Day dinner.
The menu is very limited and unimaginative, it is not changed from lunch to dinner even thou it is the only restaurant in the hotel ( the other has exactly the same menu). The hotel is very far from everything, so you don’t have options.
The presentation, or lack of, was pitiful. The buffet expensive, few options, cafeteria style.
Wine selection was poor too. Callaway Gardens Resort and Spa is quite expensive so I was expecting a lot more. The staff looked like they had just being hired and had no clue on anything, they were trying and nice and doing the best they could under very poor management and understaffing. Extremely disappointed

I would not recommend this restaurant. The menu is the same for lunch and dinner not to mention the quality of the food taste like a cafeteria. Waited over an hour for a salad with 4 ingredients with very few patrons in the restaurant. If you do have to eat here, I would recommend the burger. Overpriced and poor service.

The room that we ate in was very messy. The vacuum was in the entrance as well as other stuff stacked near the door and other places around the room. The windows were dirty. The waitress was very good, just attentive enough. The salmon was good , the wine was misspelled on the menu and the dessert was bad....

Our waitress was very very special!! You are lucky to have her . I hope you can look up who it was so she gets recognition. The dinners were just as described on the menu and the quality of each was perfect . Our table had three different entrées and all were enjoyed!

The food was good. Very limited menu. Went two nights in a row. No variety. Maybe time of year that other restaurants on the grounds were closed and even outside of the gardens no many places open. Overall good experience

watress was not friendly at all, it was not busy, left dirty dishes on table while we were served main course, did not come around to check on us, very disappointed
We had also made reservations for the following day and after being on hole for over 30 minutes hung up and called and left message with operator
I use to come to Calloway every year in the late 70's and 89's, it was great but was very disappointed this trip, did not feel welcomed

Our food was cold.
Not enough servers.
Doing Covid-19 not except-able. Salads was open and one guest server herself potatoes. No gloves 🧤
The salad and the dessert were exposed. look amazing but people were picking up and putting down.
The music was amazing!
We had to leave and get something to eat.
I made plans to enjoy but that just didn’t happen.

The Piedmont Dining Room inside the Callaway Gardens Lodge & Spa ALWAYS has excellent food, but we especially enjoy the Sunday Brunch buffets. Most recently we attended the Easter Buffet, and while it was priced high ($57 + 20% gratuity added + 20% "Service Fee" (???), the food and presentation were excellent. And the staff is super-attentive, so the whole experience was positive.

We had reservations for 3 & i had added in comments that we wanted to be seated outdoors (my son not vaccinated yet)thinking Cason’s Tap Room was part of Piedmont dining room. However it isnt & no tables at Casons ( walk up only)so we got takeout food which was excellent. My husband & i had lunch there also which was very good except my hamburger had a sweet onion jam on it - think would have been better with ham or poultry. There are some outdoor tables in courtyard next to Piedmont Dining Room which could have been used but looks like they werent staffed for a large crowd especially with the extra cleaning & sanitizing required. We had takeout brunch too/ food is excellent. Covid has been difficult for everyone so hopefully things will get back into gear.

Extremely limited menu and very expensive for a nothing special hotel dining room. I think they are struggling with Covid restrictions and clearly need to hire more people. The sold out hotel for Easter caught them by surprise, I guess. The staff did their best with a bad situation though. There were a lot of unhappy and hungry people because there aren’t any other dinner options in the hotel or close by.

Metal doors were locked when we came early and very unfriendly lady told us when we could come back. Came back at that time and there was no one there. Perked in and saw her texting.
We had hoped to come for a lovely Sunday brunch but instead it was an average to below average sandwich menu. The server was super nice and enjoyed her much more than the restaurant

Covid- limited menu and currently no weekend buffet. My wife and I both ordered rib eyes. Overcooked and not worth the $34.00 price tag. Our first night out after getting covid vaccine was disappointing. Maybe this place is better when not constrained by covid, but I would not recommend it now.

Limited menu, asked if a wine list was available, response was "there should be". Onion soup tasted like beef bouillon, little cheese, soggy bread. Chicken tenders over cooked and dry. Tried to order fish and chips and told they didnt have any fish. Served the cheese dip with potato chips. Not going to comment on the meal our guests had, but would never take guess there again for lunch.
