"We had a wonderful lunch. We were able to sit outside and relax. Although the bar menu was limited, our food was delicious. The waiter and chef were very helpful with me finding accommodations for gluten-free options. Overall we had a lovely time."

"We had an early dinner so the dining room was half empty and quiet. The food was delicious. I had scallops, a nightly special and my wife had short ribs. Although she ordered the smaller portion, she still had food enough for a second meal. The service was top notch. Our water glasses were kept full throughout our stay. They had a variety of craft beers on tap that I appreciated."

"The attention shown by our waiter (Phil), really made the night special for us. The table he selected was quiet and intimate as I had requested. His food recommendations were appropriate and interesting. His attention to detail and his lack of fuss made the experience very welcoming."

"Atmosphere, bar and dining areas all nice and great look and feel. But disappointed with the quality of how the food tasted and was presented. The green fired tomatoes didn't have much taste except for the grease they were soaking in. Weren't fried properly, so they absorbed all the oil they were cooked in. The special of the night was scallops with mushrooms, black eye peas, rice. My friend and I both thought that sounded good, so we ordered the special. well when it arrived the presentation did not look appetizing and it was not good at all. I tried to eat 1/2 of it, but my friend left almost all of it.
Surprisingly, the wait staff didn't seem to care if we ate it. They asked if we wanted it boxed up but never asked if we did or didn't like it. Not smart. So I'll go again and try it sometime and if the same, I won't spend more hard earned dollars anymore. The bar has music so maybe a cocktail and thats it !!"

"We have been to dinner, lunch and bar noshes many times at the Gables and are always happy with the atmosphere,our selections and the service but this was our first brunch visit. It was truly outstanding! There are 3 options: buffet, order from the menu or buffet with add-ons (at a reduced price ) from the menu. I am not usually a fan of buffets: the food always looks a little tired and usually isn't hot enough. Or, what looked best is gone before you get back to it. At the Gables, everything was fresh and artistically presented, so I enjoyed the buffet (shrimp and grits!) My guests ordered salmon eggs benedict which everyone liked very much."

"Saturday evening reservations at 7:00 p.m. -Seated promptly despite a FULL House. Proof that the Gables is hitting on all cylinders as the restaurant was busy with lots of 2 and 4 tops enjoying great service, great food and charming ambiance. The perfect balance of attention and privacy by the wait team insured the timely enjoyment of our cheeseboard, our cocktails from the bar, and our entrees and wine selection. Top notch wait staff further enhances the deletable efforts from the kitchen team. If you haven't been, go. If you've been before but haven't tried in a while - go back. The Gables will charm you again and again."

"The Gables is very unique and offers an "Olde World" atmosphere with modern day amenities.
The Easter Sunday Brunch was Great !
Brunch food selections, especially the smoked salmon and capers, were outstanding.
The service was very attentive and reliable.
Definitely a place for you to try and enjoy for yourself.

"We went for our daughter's 25th birthday celebration. Our waitress was very helpful in making suggestions for drinks and food. The martinis, fried green tomatoes, crab soup and salads were all delicious. For our entrees, my daughter & I had Shrimp & Grits. 6 good size shrimp & yummy cheesy grits. Her boyfriend had the grouper and my husband had the chicken. Every plate was empty when the waitress took them away. Cheesecake & Creme Brulee for dessert. Everything was very tasty and the service was impeccable. We will definitely return to try out more dishes from the menu."

"Our group of 4 went on a Sunday for a 2:00 pm reservation. The place was almost empty. Even though the website said that lunch was available until 2:30 pm, we were told that the lunch menu was not available to us (at 2:00 pm). So we had the brunch buffet. The shrimp and grits were good and the fruit and cheeses were nice. The eggs were dry. I thought there would be more variety on the buffet. It was good, just not great. Service was good, not great, as well."
