Our food and service were great. They had an entertainer (singer) where we sat on the patio. It was too loud and distracted from our conversation. Would rather have had it as background music level. It was unpleasant to have to shout at each other to have to be heard.

My Shrimp and Grits were delicious. My husband’s Fish and Chips was only so-so. Appetizer and dessert were good. The best part of the evening was the great musician and the beautiful weather.

Great dinner for our family of 7. We had 5 visitors from out of state and this was a perfect venue. Ambience is great and really feels like distinctive Aiken. The food was very good and with a nice touch of southern/low country to please the out of town guests. Our server, Winston, was very attentive and charming. Highly recommend this place.

We used OpenTable to reserve our table. We opted for indoor, not high top nor outdoor using the selections available. When we arrived, we were told the indoor tables were overbooked and were offered outdoor or high top. The young lady at the greeting kiosk did her best and was able to squeeze us in to an indoor table. For that we are grateful and it made our visit pleasant. I am dubious of OpenTable, however. We will not be using OpenTable again without also verifying all the details of our planned visit by phone afterward, which defeats the point of OpenTable's supposed convenience. Thank you for having staff willing to go out of their way to accommodate us.

Real nice young man as our server. He lacked proper training. Food was as great as ever, music fantastic, atmosphere beautiful.

On another note. No lights n parking lot which was an issue. I left the ladies at steps while I went to get the car. A vagrant hit them up for some cash but luckily didn’t press the issue.

I’ll be sure to ask if parking lot lights are properly functioning before we book again. Thx for asking!

It was great food. Highly recommend getting a table inside if there is a live band if you want to have a conversation. Outside is for those wanting to listen to music.

The waitstaff was attentive and also a good sales person. (He talked my wife into an additional drink). The food choices were good. Everyone at the table enjoyed their food. (the only complaint about the food per-se was that the bourbon gravy on the wonderful biscuits was a bit salty). The wife loved the smoked salmon so much she is hoping she can order it again and again... even as a take-out item to enjoy with a little capers and crackers at home. The Bloody Mary wasn't very potent, but the in-house made mix was very good and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We would recommend The Stables for other events based on our experience with Father's Day 2021.

My steak salad was not good. Steak was in large chunks, tasted greasy. Fried green tomatoes were good. My lavender lemonade drink did not have any lemonade...tasted like soda water and vodka -- yuk. Too many flies outside and the service was super slow. Understand that you can't get staff... then maybe take fewer reservations. Generally speaking...it did not seem clean either. Too bad, we use to love this restaurant when you could eat inside the stable.

This was our first time at The Stables Restaurant. We loved the informal atmosphere of the place, in the midst of the beautiful grounds of Rose Hill. The food was outstanding, as was the service. One of our servers was Ryan, whose first day was yesterday, and he was really focused on doing a great job. We need to put in a special word about the pot roast which my wife had for dinner, since pot roast can be fatty if it's not cooked properly. This meat was obviously done right, was not at all fatty, and was the tastiest we've had in a long time, while being extremely tender. All in all a great experience, and a place to which we'll return many times.

The Stables provides very good food at reasonable prices in a great setting. Their service staff was very shorthanded on this night so there were delays in getting seated and placing orders, but beyond that point those who were working were very accommodating, efficient, friendly and much overworked.

We had a reservation for 5 at 6:45 pm. When we arrived there was no receptionist at the entrance so we waited about 8 minutes and the I went looking for someone. That someone was the bartender. She checked the computer and had our reservation which requested indoor dining. There were no tables available for our party. This was a special night. My 3 daughters from New York drove down to see me since I have cancer and we don't know the outcome. I wanted this to be a night to remember. Instead we were faced with sitting outdoors or at a small table for 4 which would have been fine for drinks. We ended up at a high table for 4 in the bar area and I ended up sitting on a hard metal stool with no back - very uncomfortable! The night was a disaster! The food was good as was our server but it was not the night I anticipated The receptionist was uptight and not helpful. Will not return to this place!!!

When we first arrived at our reservation time we had about a 10 minute wait before a hostess came out. Then we were told that a standard table would be outside seating which is not what standard usually means. In fact, on their page at Open Table there is specifically outdoor seating and standard indoor seating. After explaining this to the hostess and that we made a reservation through Open Table and are Open Table VIP's we were reluctantly given an indoor table. It is obvious that this restaurant is under staffed. It took quite a while to get a drink or food. We found out that the wait was due to our waitress taking ill with heat stroke and she had to take a break. When they did finally bring my glass of wine they brought a chardonnay and not the Rose we asked for. Once we got our food order the food was actually quite tasty and good. This was our first visit there and we are not certain that we will be back except for the food. Also, the band was quite good but we noticed a lot of people complaining that it was too loud for the inside venue.

They were understaffed that day and it showed. But there was more the management could have done to help out our server. Other than that the food was impeccable.
