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.

Our dinner here was one of the highlights of our weekend at Callaway. It's an upscale, lovely, quiet and intimate restaurant on the beautiful grounds of the gardens. It overlooks a large lake and the golf course (nice views out large windows), and has outside balcony seating which must be nice in good weather (it was too warm for us).... More

Given the incredible scenery overlooking the lake and one if the golf courses, you'd expect great food and it did not disappoint. The flat iron steak was excellent and the rainbow trout was very tasty. We had 15 and had good service and a most pleasant experience.

The service was great. We went on a Thursday night in June. It was not very crowded. My husband and I both got a salad to start. It was very fresh. My husband got the salmon and I had the crab cakes. The salmon was on the small side but it was the best salmon that I have ever tried.... More

We were so looking forward to dining here! Fine dining.. in a beautiful rustic location overlooking the most breathtaking views you can imagine. But what a disappointment! The food.... everything... was absolutely horrible. The steak, fish, shrimp.... so disappointing. Pricey too... and so not worth it! You can go to the bar downstairs and still get to see the view...
