    Very good lunch and reasonable prices. Tasty cheese biscuit but only gave 1 each and was not very warm. Small portions but ok for lunch. A small salad with the entree would be nice.

    The sides were delicious but my filet was a bit over and unseasoned. Service was great. We were there celebrating our 25th anniversary and ended up sitting at a table right beside a very large loud group so it kind of lessened the romance.

    What a fabulous discovery! We were passing through Alabama en route to Mississippi, and thought this restaurant would fit the bill for a good lunch. So true! It was excellent. All of our food was delicious! My husband and I had the four sides choice and our son ordered the fried chicken breast with sawmill gravy. Everything was prepared to perfection. We will be back as quick as we can!

    Food was very good as were the drinks. Service was impersonal and "hurried." Not the what we were expecting for my wife's birthday celebration. It was quiet where we could talk, so that was a positive.

    I took my best friend to lunch for her birthday at the DG before heading to massages. Everything was PERFECT. From the service to the food, our experience was great. We were dressed in very casual athleisure wear for the spa and we were treated like we were dressed to the nines! It was a wonderful lunch ❤️

    Dinner was delightful. The fried oysters and crab claws fried and sautéed were delicious. The brussel sprouts were undercooked and required a steak knife to cut. Lamb chops were medium instead of medium rare as ordered but were seasoned well and tasty.

    Food is always top notch at dg and todays lunch did not disappoint! Gourmet southern meat and three style lunch and I got all veggies which came with a wonderful biscuit/cornbread , all delicious and had enough to take home for lunch the following day. Only reason for 4 stars on value section was that everything was $2 more than listed on their online and OT menu. Should be updated to reflect current prices.

    Love this place. The food is excellent. Great atmosphere. White table cloths. "Top shelf." Normally the service is attentive and professional. The server was indifferent, not attentive and almost rude. The food is so good, I'm still going back.

    The $44 white fish special was red snapper, supposedly served over summer succotash. Ordered 2. The fish was over cooked, grey, cold and horrible. The succotash was brown, not fresh and bizarre. Very disappointed. This is the first time at Daniel George for such a poor experience. We paid $220 for my wife and me for dinner. It was 100% horrible. Service was excellent. Food was so bad I am second guessing going back.

    My husband and I were celebrating my birthday. The experience was just ok and I was expecting more due to the reputation and price. We were seated in a room with a mirrored wall and carpeted floor. There were large glass globes on the ceiling for lighting which was a cool element of the room, but they had a coating of grime and dust. Despite being full of other diners, the room felt dead. Our waitress was timely and polite but not particularly engaging. I ordered a lavender gin fizz and was not impressed - slurped up a glop of syrup resting at the bottom of the glass. The swordfish app was the highlight of my meal. Flavor was great but the fish was a bit dry. I ordered the pork piccata served with fingerling potatoes and broccolini which was disappointing. Pork was slightly overdone and broccolini was slightly underdone. The sancerre that the waitress recommended to go with my dish did not pair well. The acidity eroded the flavors rather than elevating them. We perused the dessert menu which was the usual fair and underwhelming so we passed. The feel of this restaurant is that it enjoys a loyal, affluent clientele. I know it’s been around a long time so they’re doing something right, but it missed the mark for me.
