The Gardens Restaurant - Callaway Gardens
We are currently closed as of 3/20/2020, due to CDC regulations in compliance with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Beautiful view of lake and sunset from the porch- perfect for romantic evening or special occasion. Food is excellent, service attentive and friendly. My family has celebrated many occasions there over the years but eat dinner there often as well.
group golf trip to Callaway Gardens resort....this experience was a fantastic way to end a great trip!
Excellent food an service. A wonderful addition to the Callaway experience.
NOT a high end establishment like they want to think they are.

The date went well service was great
Thank you so much for your review! We greatly appreciate it.
Great Service. Nice atmosphere. Best meal of our weekend. Delicious Prosecco!
I was there with my spouse and we enjoyed ourselves. It was a quiet night with just two other couples in there when we were there. Our server was very attentive and added a nice dessert touch as we were out celebrating a birthday. The food was delicious and because they had a special Valentine's prix fixe dinner we got a nice sampling of the menu.
Food was delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant!! Wait staff was very efficient
Went for Christmas Eve dinner - felt festive yet elegant. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The fried green tomatoes were delicious & awesome- tomatoes tasted fresh & crisp. I had the rainbow trout & mom had the bone-in filet, both dishes were perfectly cooked to taste & serving size was well balanced. Service was well-timed, attentive, and friendly. Wine selection was well ranged from adorable to more expensive bottles - had bottle of Malbec & mom loved it!
Thank you for writing us! We are so happy you enjoyed dining with us during this special season. Thanks for choosing to spend Christmas at Callaway.
We had a nice dinner over there Christmas eve and did the Festival of Lights after. It's a nice restaurant, bit fireplace with a couch in front of it that we relaxed on for a bit after dinner. Wife got the trout special which was very good and I got the NY strip. The food was good, service was good, just nothing spectacular and a bit pricey for what you get. I think if you sat outside on a warm day your experience might be better. The grounds up there are beautiful, but it was dark when we went...
Thanks for writing your review! We greatly appreciate your feedback and are glad you enjoyed our special Christmas Eve dinner. We hope you join us again this Spring when our balcony opens back up.
We stayed at Callaway lodge for my birthday weekend. We saw the Fantasy in Lights and ate at The Gardens one evening. The restaurant was not very crowded so the atmosphere was quiet. The food was amazing. My salmon was the best salmon I have ever eaten. Skin was crispy even under the sauce.
Thanks so much for writing us! We are glad you enjoyed your dining experience and hope you join us again soon.
The food was delicious along with the view being beautiful. It was a place I would go again and I would recommend.
Thank you for your feedback! We greatly appreciate your review and hope you join us again this Spring.
My wife and I liked this restaurant. She said her eggplant parmesan was the best she ever had and since I never had halibut before, it was the best I ever had. They have a great wine selection and the lit fireplace created a pleasing ambiance. It was a little pricey, but worth it.
Thank so much for writing this review for us. We are so glad you enjoyed your dining experience and hope you visit us again.
Excellent food and service, fire in the fireplace, and a nice wine selection made this a special evening for us and our guests. The trout was especially delicious and everyone else was very pleased with their selections. Good job!
Thanks again! We hope you join us again soon. Springtime on the patio is a beautiful scene.
As always, this restaurant is an iconic Callaway Gardens dining on the golf course overlooking a beautiful view. Food was excellent, service was superb.
We’ve been coming to Callaway for over 10 years. Needless to say there have been changes for better or worse. In my opinion the Gardens restaurant has gone down. The prices are too high. The food options are “eh”. Example: ordered eggplant Parmesan. 3 thickly cut slices of eggplant with minimal sauce and slices of Gouda cheese in between. It came with carrots and asparagus (not2 veges is normally put together plus I already had the eggplant). This was not a good dish. The eggplant ends up too tough and dry. The slices Gouda reminded me of a sandwich. My husbands bone in filet was wet. Perfectly cooked mRare but No char. The only thing we could think of is that they did it Sous vide and failed to dry it off. Blah! The wine list was minimal. No Spanish reds. Nothing interesting except some very over priced wines. Management definitely needs to rethink the business plan. And find another chef.
Thank you for your valued feedback. We apologize that your visit was anything but excellent and will surely share your sentiments with our Head Chef & management team. We do rotate our menus seasonally, so we hope this new Winter menu might be more appealing to your taste buds.
We were there on a quiet night but fully enjoyed everything!
Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your visit.
We had a wonderful anniversary dinner tonight! The staff was extremely accommodating to a food allergy and our meal and experience was outstanding.
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your anniversary dinner with us. Thanks for choosing Callaway for this special memory making moment.
The service was amazing. The restaurant and view beautiful. It was quiet and laid back. They didn’t rush us, which I really appreciate because it gave us plenty of time to enjoy the food and each other. And the food.... oh the food was so good. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was quite possibly the best thing I have ever eaten.
Thank you for your review. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your meal. Please come back again soon.
This place is set in a beautiful location however, the food was overpriced. The steak was cooked perfect but the sauce tasted like a bullion cup mixed with water. We felt like we were rushed and the waiter seemed bothered. We also ordered shrimp on the side to split and we were given three instead of four, it tasted like they microwaved and not even grilled or sautéed. There were not many choices on the menu for sides. Not impressed with this place and we won’t be back. The directions where incorrect on the GPS on the location.
Thank you for the feedback. We greatly appreciate it and will be sure to share your sentiments with our team.
The sourdough bread, salads, salmon, and shrimp and scallops entrees were all wonderful. We had a great bottle of wine and watched the sun set over the lake in gorgeous weather. The wait staff was very kind! The only hiccup was that we waited several minutes to be greeted/seated, as the hostess was out in the deck and then in the kitchen. Our first time dining here, and we will definitely come back.
Thank you for submitting this review! We are glad you enjoyed your dining experience. Visit us again soon!
Food was way overpriced for the quality of what you got. $29 for a simple and very dry pasta dish with veggies and flavored with lots of lemon juice. $5 to add shrimp helped me eat the dish. My husband ordered the mountain chicken which was a little dry. About $30 for chicken, whipped potatoes, carrots and asparagus. $10 cheesecake had crust with rubber texture. The crust could be peeled off. Favorite item was chocolate lava cake but I can’t justify coming again just to order a lava cake.
Thank you for the feedback. We greatly appreciate it and will be sure to share your sentiments with our team.
We love the Gardens Restaurant! Feels like going back in time. The gorgeous, rough-hewn beams, large fireplace, and beautiful white tablecloth setting make for a wonderful dining experience. If the weather is nice, the wraparound porch, with great view of the golf course and ponds, is amazing! The steaks and seafood dishes are very nice and the wine selection good! Enjoy!
Thanks so much JB123! We are so very glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. Please join us again soon. We will launch our new Fall menu this week.
Wife and I enjoyed a late dinner at the restaurant. She was attending a conference at Callaway that ended that day at 8pm. We arrived at 8:30 and were only customers in restaurant. Excellent service, excellent food (scallops and shrimp), beautiful interior, and beautiful views of lake made it a wonderful night.
Thanks so much! We are so very glad you enjoyed your dinner with us. Please join us again soon. We will launch our new Fall menu this week.
I'm not sure how this place stays open, or how they keep food in house! There were 4 patrons there when we arrived at 6pm, and only 2 when we left. There was a hostess, and a (slightly odd) server, and we assume there was a chef, or maybe those 2 did the cooking as well? The main course tasted great, but was way overpriced. We could tell the dessert had been warmed in a microwave and the ice cream tasted old. We had the place to ourselves, so it was lovely, but it was just kind of odd that it was deserted. Hopefully just a slow weekend. I enjoyed the old decor. I hope they are able to pick up business.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a review. We appreciate your feedback and hope to engage some more dining patrons like yourself with the release of our new Fall menu this week. We hope you dine with us again soon.
Making a reservation was very difficult .Supposedly no availability but very few tables occupied on arrival or departure.
We apologize that you had a hard time booking. If you do not see a table on here open, please be sure to call the restaurant to see what availability there might be, as there may have been last minute cancelations.
Although the service was impeccable, the sea bass dish was well below my expectations from a "fine dining" establishment. Skip the $11 fried tomato appetizer-awful batter. The center of the fish was undercooked, the seasoning on the vegetables did not suit my taste. Party members who had steak said that it was very good as were the vegetables. Great ambiance and views of the lake. Desserts were excellent. Had the prices been $10 less per entree, my rating might be 4 stars.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Gardens restaurant. We hope you visit us again.
Great food, service was excellent

Thanks for your feedback! We appreciate it.
The food was amazing. My wife had the steak and I had the salmon.
Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback. Join us again sometime soon this Summer!
We eat out a lot in higher end restaurants so my star ratings were based on comparisons of other high end eating places
Music was to loud & the male waiter acted as if he was not happy to be at work that day. He really made us feel uncomfortable. We will not return.
Thank you for your feedback. We are saddened to hear your experience was not up to our Callaway standards. We will be discussing with our back of house staff immediately. We pride ourselves on southern hospitality & will be correcting this promptly.
Wonderful staff and fine dining food. Overall, it was a lovely evening.

It was a quiet romantic evening with my husband for our anniversary. The food was amazing the view was gorgeous and the staff is very friendly. We love this place!!!!
Thank you so much for your loyalty to Callaway! We appreciate your feedback & hope you join us again soon.
TheGardens is far better than Callaway’s Piedmont Dining Room but that’s not saying much.
We appreciate your feedback.
Delicious, tranquil and classy. My husband and I went for our anniversary. Everything about The Gardens is exceptional. I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly. My husband had the sea bass and loved it. Can’t wait to return!
We are so incredibly glad you enjoyed your visit. We appreciate your great review. Be sure to stop by to join us for our lunch on Saturdays & Sundays this Summer.
Wonderful ambiance dining on the porch and a beautiful sunset! Waiter was attentive but not overly so. Food was good
We appreciate your review! We hope you join us again soon.
Had a table outside on the patio overlooking golf course, lake and a sunset. Beautiful location, great service and bone in tenderloin excellent. First class facility at Callaway Gardens.
