We love Daphne Lodge. It is our go-to place for a good meal. Have been eating at Daphne since the 1950's. Always good and the service is quick, courteous, and, if you come more than once, personal.

Quaint, homey establishment. Grilled grouper was awesome. My husband enjoyed his catfish. Service was superb. Everything the waitress recommended was great. Save room for the chocolate caramel pecan cake! Will definitely return if in the area.

Tonight's dinner at Daphne Lodge was an all around excellent meal! The wine was chilled perfectly, the appetizers were great, the salad was robust, and my entree was perfectly timed. We shared fried pickles and onion rings. Hard to say which was best because they...More
