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 we don't usually do. The menu isn't huge, but it doesn't need to be when... More

The Gardens Restaurant is in the original Lake View Clubhouse, circa 1951. A beautiful building and a setting that cannot be beat anywhere in Pine Mountain. It has a classy elegance with outstanding views of the lake and golfcourse. Out-door dining is available on a huge covered porch encouraging you to be one with nature, or in-door dining in a...

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. We enjoyed ourselves, but we're mildly disappointed in the quality of the food.

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!

There are a number of nice dining options at Callaway Gardens, but the Gardens Restaurant is tops for any special occasion with its unique look and feel. Our small group was provided with several menu choices, including salmon, chicken, and spinach risotto. All were excellent and the staff was superb. Seek out this venue during any trip to Callaway Gardens... More
