The food was decent, and the service adequate, but the noise level was so high that I will come back only at times when it is not busy.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, I do know it can get a bit loud in here (do to the acoustics) around peak times. Usually the restaurant side with the booths is a little quieter than the other side of the restaurant.

Overall very nice neighborhood place. Tasty food served fairly quickly. Crab cakes are a specialty and they do a great job using mostly back fin. They serve a 10 oz glass of wine (in addition to the 6) and this is just the right size for the food they serve. We enjoy the place but on Saturday you should have a reservation as there are a lot of neighborhood walk ins.

When we arrived for our 7:30 reservation, we were seated right away. That was the best part of our experience at Corner Stable on Sat. 3/23/19. Our waitress did stop by shortly thereafter to get our drink orders and then another waitress stopped by about 5 min later trying to take our drink order again. (She wasn’t sure if we were her table or not.) We got our drinks within 10 min of sitting down. At that time we placed our appetizer and meal order, then nothing for 30 min, at which time our dinner order came. No appetizer and the salad I ordered came with the dinner. We canceled our appetizer, yet it came about 2 min later.

As for the food, we had ordered streamed shrimp as the appetizer. When they finally came out, they were good, but not piping hot which we assumed was the delay in receiving them, yet pricey! I ordered the crab cake and ribs and companion ordered a brisket sandwich. The crab cake was all lump with little filler yet also little seasoning so kind of bland. The half rack of baby back ribs were very skinny (not much meat) and very saucy with a sweet bbq taste which I didn’t enjoy at all. The brisket sandwich was just okay. We had 1 bottled beer and 2 drafts and with a 20% tip, we got out of there for just under $100. Too steep for just an average dinner for 2!

We had an excellent server (wish I got her name) for our party of 7, who informed us when she would be a bit delayed as she took the order for another bigger party. She also had the kitchen redo our chicken tender takeout order without us having to ask because it was over-cooked. The food was delicious.

We have been here a number of times and the service was always excellent. On this visit, the service was less than adequate at least initially. We were seated in the almost empty mid-Saturday afternoon restaurant for 15 minutes before approached by anyone and he was not even our server. He apologized and offered to get us drinks. However, it took another 10 minute for our assigned server to bring our ice tea. After that, service was adequate. That experience will not stop us from going there, but it was disconcerting.

I’ve read and heard that the Corner Stable had great ribs and outstanding crab cakes. We experienced neither. Other than the dessert, the salted caramel crunch cake, all of the food we had was fair. The dessert was good, but not the best I had. They were out of the original dessert I wanted to get, the apple crumb pie.
The rsaice on the ribs was not very good, tasted too much like ketchup. The crab cake I had, while it was large, was probably the most bland crab cake I’ve ever had. It was meaty but it was so tasteless that it didn’t matter. The macaroni and cheese as a side was pretty tasty, as were the baked beans. The corn bread was one of the highlights of the night. Thankfully we had gift cards to cover almost all of our bill. The selection of craft beer was really good too, but not worth a trip to Columbia for us just for that.

When we arrived the hostess didn’t have our reservation even though I showed her my email confirmation but luckily they still had availability. I also received credit for the visit so they must have found it later I suppose. The food was great as always. The server was friendly and attentive. I gave it 4 stars because it seemed to take a very long time to receive our food from the kitchen. They were busy but not at capacity or anything. We would still continue to go because their food is great! We even told someone about it before we went and they were glad to receive the recommendation of another restaurant to check out!

The food here is really good. I’ve been 3 times. The wings are especially good. The burgers are excellent. I ribs are so tender they melt in your mouth. I had the crab cake which had very large pieces of crab. Very very good even though it had some fillers but still seemed a great crab cake and large. I will order it again. My only complaint is that it was not hot nor warm. I should have returned it to have them heat it up but I was so hungry I could not wait. The Corner Stable will be my regular place to go.
