Sit down to a view overlooking Lake Sidney Lanier and enjoy Lanier Islands’ year-round dining experience. Sidney’s welcomes you to a whole new experience of fine dining at Legacy Lodge. Our master chefs have created delicious appetizers, entrees, and deserts using the finest ingredients from local and family-owned farms from around the South. Sidney’s celebrates nature through food. It’s menu is the marriage of joyful Southern cooking and farm-to-table cuisine as we seek to bring about the very best flavor from every ingredient. What is perhaps most exciting about a dining experience like Sidney’s is that the menu is driven by the season and the availability of certain farm-fresh vegetables, and local meats and cheeses, so every visit could offer something entirely new and different.
