“Our outdoor dining experience at the Gables exceeded our expectations…   the food was outstanding, our server was just wonderful, and the ambiance was magical.”

“Lunch was fabulous today. There were so many things that looked good on the menu, it was hard to choose, but I decided to try something new and went with the shrimp and grits.  Delicious! Everything was perfect – the bread, the appetizers (thank you!), the entrees, the desserts, the service, the ambiance. I loved it all. Thank you so much for letting us sit upstairs – it can get a little loud when you get 13 teachers together for a holiday celebration. Many thanks for your warm hospitality!”

“Totally awesome experience. Beautifully decorated. Fantastic chef. Delicious food. My fiancé proposed and we were served champagne and dessert on the house!“

“What an awesome place! Joanne and I went for drinks and a bite to eat on Friday night. Great atmosphere and piano / harmonica players were perfect. The Gables is such a warm place to hang out, food is top notch too! Gotta try it, you will like it!”

“Very elegant atmosphere, it gets better and more surprising with each visit. Food is beyond delicious, well prepared and fresh.”
