    We expected a nice to fine dining experience and it was very basic. The facility is going through remodeling. I wouldn’t recommend it. It was more akin to bar food.

    It was obvious that the shrimp and crab claws had been frozen, one of my crab claws was still icy. The buffet items weren’t flavorful and the spring mix on the salad bar appeared to have been there for a while. Our server, on the other hand was phenomenal! We love Callaway and the Lodge, we also dine frequently at Casons.

    Coastal night is more like finger foods. Chilled oysters, crab legs and shrimp. Small slithers of flank steak, green beans and instant mashed potatoes. Oh i forgot the season-less low country boil 🤦🏾‍♀️ Definitely not worth $47.99/per person.

    Not what I thought. Looks like a cafeteria more than a dining room. The food was not cheap and was average at best. Took a while for someone to greet us, but after that, the service was prompt. Got the pork chop and was 35# and very dry. Ok if you are staying there but would not go out of your way

    While the service was fantastic, the buffet was mediocre and bland. I do understand that its a buffet but I have had better steak at golden corral. The food wasnt terrible but I would have rather stayed home and cooked. Just for 50 bucks a person was not worth the price. I will say our host was nice and our waitress beth was very prompt and kind.

    We went for my birthday. They ask when making reservations if it is a special occasion but other than telling you Happy Birthday that is it. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly and attentive. The food was good. Buffet was good but over priced if you don’t plan to eat a lot. The ambiance was the only thing I would have suggestions. Dim the lighting, divide the room a bit and create a cozier nicer more elegant environment with just a few changes. Overall a great experience.

    We enjoyed a nice meal at the Piedmont Dining Room. The service was wonderful. My husband had the NY Strip and it was cooked just right. I had the buffet and enjoyed the pasta and the Chicken Parmesan. The fresh green beans were delicious. The Key Lime Pie on the dessert buffet was the best I’ve had in a very long time. Overall, it was a nice meal at Callaway Gardens.

    We were seated late in the buffet apparently and it was a tired, picked over terrible experience. The food was running out-cold- and not being replenished. Think no rolls, wilted salad, iced seafood display reduced to sole shrimp floating in water. no salmon, cold tenderloin, no coffee, filthy buffet table. The tired servers were more interested in stacking linens than bussing the tables previously seated tables or serving us. It was a sad depressing meal that the manager should have been ashamed to charge the later guests to participate in. The reservations were supposed to be a holiday treat for my elderly parents . I was embarrassed by it.

    This was my first time dining at the Christmas buffet at the Piedmont Dining Room. It was ok. The food could have tastier, but it was what it was. Menu was great. Service people extraordinary and always are at PDR. I dined late and the buffet could have been kept tidier. Some chilled shrimp had started to turn yellow they had been exposed to the air so long. Not good. Of course, it was not a good value. These type buffets never are. No one can consume enough food to equal the price. But all in all, ok.

    The food and presentation was delightful, however, they could have used more servers. Gratuities were added to the brunch ticket, but technically we paid for service they could not give us. They had 3-4 servers in a massive ballroom and it was difficult to get beverages or keep our glasses filled without tracking down a server assigned to our table. Otherwise the meal exceeded expectations.

    I imagine that this time of year there are challenges with getting staff, but the service was horrible for such an expensive meal at a nice place. I DO NOT fault the waitress... she was handling what looked to be well over 12 tables by herself and doing as good a job as anyone can in that situation. The restaurant is at fault for poorly staffing but it certainly made the overall experience less enjoyable. The food we got was good, so that much I can say was a saving grace. The restaurant was reservation only and we had ours a month in advance. It was not like they were not aware of the volume ahead of time.

    Seated quickly and started out great. Ordered $45 per person buffet. Looked good. Found out that looks can be deceiving. Everything was cold except the prime rib which was warmed in a pan. No crackers or bread. Asked for and never received. Good selection of entrees on the buffet bar but all tasted like straight from a freezer. Two in our party ordered off the limited menu. Chicken pesto pasta was really good. Shrimp and grits were bland. Not worth $200 for 4 folks.

    I have latex allergy and couldn't enjoy the buffet due to latex glove use. I ordered off the menu instead. I waited 45 minutes for my food and my family was finished eating when mine arrived. What was supposed to be a chicken breast had a drumstick, skin and was so tough the meat was awful. The sauce was the saving grace. I did not complain because it was SUPPOSED to be a special family meal. No complaints on the buffet from my family. Service is very slow.

    This is conveniently located in the lodge on Callaway Gardens property. We were surprised to find the reservation we made did not get us a better seating, and I did not realize we would be sharing seating areas with a buffet. The 3 of us all ordered different meals, the steak was exceptional, and the pork chop and roasted chicken were good (but not great.)

    Food and service were excellent! We ate before seeing the light show. The only improvement we can think of is to dim the lights a little and have some Christmas lights outside the window. Thank you for having a delicious meal for a vegetarian, too! And the warm bread was welcome, as we arrived starving!

    The Friday evening seafood buffet was exceptionally overpriced for the quality of the food. The cold seafood was marginal; however the hot seafood was limited in selection and overcooked. We were in the dining room for about an hour and at no time was there a chef/cook at the shrimp and grits station therefore I’m unable to comment on the quality of that offering since I was unable to taste it. The ambience and overall experience in no way warrants the price of the experience.

    We ate here for the dinner buffet twice and the breakfast buffet twice during our stay at Callaway. To say it was fantastic doesn’t begin to do it justice. The food variety was impressive. The quality and flavor of the food was amazing. All of it was fresh and re-filled with impeccable timing to ensure no waiting. I had both of my boys with me who are 7 and 10 years old. They thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. But I have to say the absolute best part of the experience was the staff. Our wait staff was top notch. They were kind, courteous, attentive, friendly, and helpful. It could not have been a better experience. My kids asked when we would be back to the restaurant as soon as we got on the road to come home. Thank you all so much for feeding us so well!

    The food was not warm on their hot bar. They used to have all you can eat crab legs as part of their "all you can eat seafood." Now they have Dungeness crab claws. They are so hard to crack, and the taste is not great....leading you to not want them. All they had was cocktail shrimp. Everything else was fried and soggy. Waitress was not friendly either. Took a long time to get anything from her. I used to love this place and came every year at Christmas....but will not be back.

    The servicer was very friendly and the restaurant was decorated very nice. It was family friendly. We had a reservation and were seated very quickly. The food however, was terrible. The steak was way over cooked, and the crab cakes need more sauce. The buffet looked ok, but not very many options. We were disappointed with food mostly especially paying almost $140.

    We were there on a Saturday evening and had the prime rib buffet at $45 per person. In addition to prime rib, the buffet included pan grilled chicken breasts, salmon, beer battered shrimp, steamed broccolini, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese with scallops, lobster bisque, bread rolls, a small salad bar, dungeoness crab claws, cold steamed shrimp, a meat and cheeae board and about 6 dessert options. Sounds nice. Everything was room temperature and most items tasted like they came pre-prepared. The prime rib, chicken and crab claws were flavorless. The beer battered shrimp were served in a covered chaffing dish so they became steamed instead of being crispy. Mashed potatoes were dry, thick, room temperature and the butter wouldn't even melt. Other than the potatoes and salad bar, the only other vegetable was broccolini. How hard is it to serve a few more vegetables on a buffet. The restaurant was not busy and there seemed to be enough wait staff. The service was okay but we had to ask for our initial drinks twice. The ambiance was okay, clean and up to date. Callaway Gardens promotes itself as an upscale resort and prices itself in that category. However, their best full-service dinning experience option does not live up to that standard. I was dissappointed.

    We did the Prim Rib Buffet. The host actually was on the rude side. The server was nice but slow. The salad bar was good. The Prime Rib was ok not best I had but not the worst. The side were below average. The mash potatoes were dry with no seasoning. Butter and salt makes difference. They had shrimp as a side it was cold and over cooked.. it $45 plus drink.

    The ambiance was that of a bright cafeteria. Very disappointed, the expectation was for somewhat of an elevated experience based on the fact this is the main dining area at the lodge. It is a buffet focus but you can order from a menu. I ordered the pork chop and it was uneatable (literally choked down one bite) it was so over cooked-despite how I ordered it. Asst. Manager notified of the sub-par experience, no real customer service training for him likely because he had no idea how to handle the situation. If you are looking for any sort of dining experience the Piedmont Room isn't it. If you love a bright cafeteria with mediocre buffet- you'll love it.

    The value vs cost was not great. Online representation of the menu was inaccurate. The alcoholic beverages were so bad our party started drinking tea and water. Breakfast was especially poor, made to order eggs could not be made to order. I realize you have a captive audience due to the remote location but an effort could be made.

He put us next to the all you can eat prime rib buffet table. My wife is legally blind and the experience of putting her next to an all you can eat buffet upset her terribly. We tried to work through it and she ordered the prime rib and it was not good at all as it showed up to our table cold. I ordered the NY strip and asked it be cooked medium rare , it came out well done and charred. That was all we could stand. Looking for a 5 star experience but in reality just another 1 star experience
