I eat out a LOT in Valdosta and I can say that Covington's is always one of my favorite places for lunch. The ownership is local so they have a vested interest in the success of their restaurant. The food is wonderful. I've never had anything at Covington's that wasn't fresh and delicious. My favorites are the Chicken Lavosh and also the Chicken Salad plate. Make sure you ask for one of their homemade cinnamon rolls!

Good fresh food, home style cooking with a bit of class and wonderful desserts. Nice atmosphere. Ladies love this small restaurant. They also cater many functions in the area from small to extra large crowds. Always fresh and good.

I kept looking around this place expecting to see little old ladies with white gloves on eating their chicken salad and jello! Stopped here while traveling. Is in the downtown part of Valdosta, so I imagine they get a lot of foot traffic from the courthouse, etc. Food was tasty, but nothing that made me go "Wow." I had the cream of broccoli soup and a tuna melt. Both were tasty, but I would not get that particular soup again. Had a "canned" taste to it. My sister had the crab soup, which was good, and a chicken wrap. She liked both of her items. Attentive service. I would probably stop here again, but I would like to mention that this place needs a GOOD scrubbing. Was kind of grungy (dirty mirrors, bathroom, etc.)

I had a high hopes for this place since it was recommended by a friend. At lunch I tried the grilled chicken sandwich. It was good but nothing over the top great about it;. The service was okay and the sweet teas was quite nice. I don't know if I'd recommend this place, but if you want a nice little lunch that may be a little overally priced, then try it.

We were having Covington's cater our daughter's wedding and stopped by for lunch and to meet with Sue Cox-Owner. Not only was our lunch great but Covington's also did a super job for the wedding. We were so pleased with the food, the service, and the great staff provided us. Also, Sue Cox is wonderful to work with and delivers more than promised. I would highly recommend Covington's for your next event or just to have lunch. Thanks Sue and crew.....your the best!
