The Gardens Restaurant, Callaway Gardens’ fine dining restaurant situated on the edge of Mountain Creek Lake, is extending hours for the Spring season.  The Gardens Restaurant is a wonderful location to mark a special event such as a birthday, engagement, anniversary, or for just a nice dinner out in a beautiful setting.

 

“We always look forward to the Spring season and the launch of a new, fresh menu,” said David Petersen, director of food and beverage for Callaway Gardens. “Guests are excited to see the seasonal Gardens beauty and enjoy a delicious meal.  And, with warmer weather, dining on the porch of The Gardens Restaurant overlooking Mountain Creek Lake at sunset is definitely memory-making.”

 

Special Weekend Lunch Dining

The Gardens Restaurant also will be open for lunch on Saturdays and Sundays especially for the Spring season beginning March 18.  Guests will be able to enjoy the setting during their visit to see the azaleas during Celebrate Spring! from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

Callaway Gardens is committed to using fresh, regional, and fair-trade products in our menu offerings at The Gardens Restaurant. The menu also reflects seasonally available selections as chosen by Callaway Gardens’ culinary team led by Sid Kurrimbukus, executive chef, and The Gardens Restaurant’s Executive Sous Chef, Jay Curry.  So, there is a reason to visit throughout the year to see what new items have been created with each season’s harvest.
