Anderson Japanese Gardens Reviews & Ratings
I have been visiting the gardens for ten years. I have enjoyed lovely walks here with my children, visiting family and on my own. It is a place you can return to time and again with each visit offering a unique experience. Anderson Gardens is a peaceful and restorative natural retreat. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
This a wonderful resource. Anderson’s Japanese Gardens was named finest Japanese Garden in the country in 2007. One of the most beautiful gardens my wife snd I have ever visited. Definitely worth spending a day. They have a great restaurant serving breakfast and lunch - open until 2pm. You can tour the gardens then stop back at the drink bar for latte, espresso or handcrafted fruit drink.
As always, so serene and peaceful: The koi are plump, colorful, and plentiful, and their babies are growing; the ducks and their families are splashing happily in the various ponds. The waterfalls are soothing and relaxing, and the birdsong and insect trills add to the harmony. The lily pads appeal to the eye, and the trees and plants combine for a beautiful natural painting. The gift shop has a new look with updated shelving and many new items. Now--anytime--is a perfect time to visit the garden and delight all your senses!
I give this place an ABSOLUTE 5. The food was amazing, which made it reasonably priced. The garden tour was marvelous! ❤ You can take some great photos and feed the fish during your tour. Waterfalls are beautiful. I would reccomend this place to everyone! 👍🏽
My wife and I went for a Sunday brunch. We were able to be seated right away and the host allowed us to select our table. Once we were sat our waters were poured by a non-server who seemed to spill the water all over the floor, but we were entertained and just laughed. Our actual server was amazing and was very patient. It seemed as if she knew we were just there to relax. My wife ordered Steak and Eggs and I ordered the Steak and Eggs Oscar. We were both very pleased with our dished and our steaks were cooked perfectly. The flavor of the food coupled with the drinks was amazing. We are looking forward to another dining experience at the Japanese Gardens.
