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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
