Our second visit to Stirrups. Beautiful restaurant and we went to celebrate my wife's 75th birthday with son and his family. Food is excellent. Issue was the delay in the service. It took us 3 hours to complete our meal. Way too long. Waitress was efficient and helpful - not her problem. Drinks took 30 minutes alone to receive. Very disappointed. Our first visit was excellent - nothing like this one.

Everyone in the party had a different dish and everything was good. I had Eggs Benedict that was amazing. The hollandaise sauce was the best I've ever had.

Where else in the world can you sit in a room with 30 ft ceilings, glass chandeliers and watch horses being judged out the window? Plus you get to eat great food with a very attentive wait staff?

Name me one!

The food is awesome as is the service but, don’t be in a hurry. It takes a while to get you’re food. This is 2nd time eating here and as I’ve said the food is great it does take a while to be served yet the service is good. It is unfortunately way overpriced. I wouldn’t say it’s as good as Mark’s Prime (which I also find way overpriced) or La Cuisine which is the total pkg! #bemorelikelacuisine

Fried chicken platter and hamburger entree had no taste, bland , lacked seasoning, also the presentation was diner style, not fine dining. .great Nantucket scallops but overcooked and served with no dipping sauces and pairing with succotash just didn't work. Desserts were best part, showcased fine dining. Enjoyed the red velvet and hummingbird immensely. Might return with visitors for the appetizers: oysters with dipping sauces worked well, as did the summer bisque and homemade agnolotti pasta.

Four of us had a wonderful dinner last evening at Stirrups. Starters were deviled eggs and sweet corn agnolotti topped with pancetta. Two people ordered the king salmon, one had the bone in pork chop and I ordered the house made rigatoni with foraged mushrooms with grilled shrimp. Sides were fingerling potatoes and creamed corn. Everything was excellent including the service. Dessert was terrific.
A beautiful restaurant with wonderful dog portraits. The highlight was our server Jersey. Not enough adjectives to describe her. She is professional attentive friendly and offers great suggestions. A very nice young woman was assisting her and did a great job. This was our 3rd visit and we are returning in a couple of weeks.

An absolute MUST dine for anyone in the area. We had the crab cakes and the pimento cheese for appetizers, both delicious! The summer bisque with the fresh biscuits and home made blueberry jam and butter is spectacular. For our entree's we had to sea bass over grits with rainbow chard which is melt in your mouth perfection. The service is always top notch with knowledgeable and attentive staff. You couldn't ask for a better 5 star experience in my opinion.

Stirrups is everything you’d want and expect from fine dining. The atmosphere is fantastic, the space is quiet and ads a level of intimacy, the food is well-prepared, presented, fresh, and flavorful.

The cost was well worth the experience. I can’t imagine we’ll go elsewhere any time we want a high-end dining experience in the future.

Our meat was overcooked and had a lot of grizzle. The AuGratin potatoes were dried out. For the $$$$$ we spent, disappointed in the food. The service and ambiance were great.

Atmosphere is really is nice and upscale. Service was great and staff was friendly and attentive. The food on the other hand was horrendous! We got both pasta options, which were both extremely dry and bland. The burger was ok, but very greasy and bland as well. Sometimes trying to make the food overly fancy does not work, especially for this restaurant. Definitely will not return the food.

The dining room is elegant--like a castle in Europe except brand new. Very high
ceilings, tables spaced nicely apart, excellent wait staff. The food was delicious, although the soups were bland, and no one I know likes grits, which were listed with several entrees. Luckily, we could omit the grits and have something else for an additional price. Otherwise, the food was delicious. We will be back.
