We were seated at 4:15 instead of 3:00. We watched as they cleared the tablecloth from the previous diners. No covid cleaning as promised took place and no new tablecloth was put on the table. We were served water about 10 minutes later, and our dinner came 30minutes after that. No service was offered such as water replenished during the meal. They did supply boxes for take home food which we packed. One member of our party had another obligation and had to leave before dessert. The 3:00 o’clock seating would have been no problem for him. We enjoyed the food and our interactions with each other made it a fun experience. We will choose other restaurants from now on.
This reservation was for Thanksgiving dinner for 2. Although the food was pretty good and was served family style, which was also pretty good, the service and management had much to be desired. Although it is understandable that it was Thanksgiving, it was absolute chaos upon entering. Everyone looked like they were completely frazzled including the manager. I really didn't mind waiting an hour for the table we reserved because our reservation was fairly early but I'm sure some people were annoyed. But most importantly it seems like the server was doing all the table service herself. And she wasn't a very good server. Having waited thousands of tables in my day, she did not know how to prioritize or complete tasks. The table never did get cleared completely and the bill took quite a while to get. They also ran out of dessert which seemed kind of silly scents they could count the reservations and have the appropriate number of deserts. I'm told the restaurant is actually pretty good the rest of the time but this was chaotic and a disappointment. Unfortunately there are only a couple of decent restaurants open on Thanksgiving in Aiken so there really wasn't much choice.
I have enjoyed eating at The Stables. This was my first experience doing the holiday dinner. I didnt realize that it was costing more than my friend told me. Kind of a shocker when I got my bill! The food was good
Busy Saturday night, so my wife's choice of entree was out, but the manager immediately came with alternative choices. Had a new waiter who was very personable and caring, but lacked knowledge of menu items.
Burgers were good, poutine was very tasty, fish and chips were standard/fine. They were out of the wine I ordered. Service was quite slow because we had a brand new server. Not certain the price matched the quality. Ryan (manager?) was a great guy that knew a lot and was very kind and helpful. No extras when we mentioned celebrating a birthday and new job 🤷♀️ Overall, it was fine, but we will try another eatery when we go out again.
Sat in the bar. Extremely loud and obnoxious patrons. Did not enjoy the “girls” yelling across the bar at one another NOR the couple making out at the table next to us. Went for a nice quiet dinner and got everything but that. It is fairly obvious that unless you are a regular there, you pretty much get ignored if you sit in the bar area.
Best Sunday Brunch I’ve had in years! A hidden gem!
The food, drinks, and service were great. We made a reservation online for inside dining, but they attempted to seat us outside and seemed surprised when we wanted inside. They accommodated us in the bar area, but they acted like they were doing us a favor. Not exactly the ambience I wanted for my wife's birthday.
We had great service and the food was fantastic. Will be going again.
Went to celebrate my wife's birthday. The band was great - music was not too loud, vocals and instruments very talented. Food was superb! A little pricey, but outstanding! This is not a place we can visit very often (budget-wise), but it was one of the best venues we have ever experienced for a special occasion. I highly recommend The Stables restaurant.
Always on point!
Love the live music! Josephine was amazing. Also our waitress was beyond perfect!!!! We will be back!!!
We always enjoy The Stables, outside table usually
Enjoyed the atmosphere and outdoor entertainment. The service was good and not rushed. The greens in the salad I ordered were not cleaned properly. Almost every bite had grit in it. My entree was good, but my husband ordered the fresh catch and thought the seasoning was too strong. We will go back for the entertainment but will most likely order burgers the next time.
First visit to this wonderful restaurant (only in Aiken for 5 years 😀) for our anniversary and it was a great dinner and experience. Such a lovely setting and the steak was fantastic. Hope to return soon!

The service was very good, but was very disappointed in the quality of the food! Some of our dishes were served cold & had to be reheated. The flavoring of the food & quality was not up the standard, that we expected ! This was our first time , & seriously doubt we will return!
Love Rosehill Stable. The historic atmosphere is serene and such a beautiful property. We love taking out of town guests here to experience the charm of Aiken. We also enjoy celebrating special occasions on the outdoor patio. Great music, food and surroundings.
Service is always fabulous and we appreciate the extra effort of the staff.
The menu always has something unique and delicious. Love the short ribs, burgers and shrimp and grits. Great selection of appetizers.
There were black flies everywhere. I have eaten at Stables and Sheffield’s several times. Really like the food and service but last night was really really bad and they did nothing about it. Did not even offer to comp dessert.
Horrible fly problem!
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.
First time dinner at the Stables and it was spectacular. Service was exceptional and food did not disappoint. Will be returning again very soon.
Laid back outdoor ambiance. Enjoyed
Live music. Food good, waited 1 hour for food to arrive. Not enough serving staff for both inside & outside diners.
Fantastic food and service!
Great ambiance, food and the live music was great!
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.
It was awesome The food was great the service was awesome It was our anniversary and they made it special. We will definitely go back
Our experience was great!!! The food, staff, band and everything was really great!! Would go back any chance we get.
Had a wonderful evening....had a fabulous server (Winston) and the food was delicious!! Will continue to visit and tell people about this gem!!
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.
Great setting and the waitstaff is very friendly. Excellent time .
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 food was delicious and Rowen gave us service. The cioppino was outstanding.
Great place for our birthday lunch! Will definitely go again. Sadie was our server and she was awesome!
Service was slow but food was delicious. We are on the porch and my main complaint was sooo many flies!
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.
Food was excellent
Cute bar and nice staff
Love the atmosphere and very good food. Would definitely recommend.
This was our return visit to The Stables. Last visit we were given a discount coupon to return and give the restaurant another chance....well, we love the property but the food and service is slow and we didn't even get what we ordered...the food was average at best...we won't be back....
