Wonderful meal. Our server TJ was great. Attentive and helpful. My wife and I split a cease which was great( heavy on the garlic, the way we like it!) . she had the crab cakes which we big and Delicious. I had TJ's recommendation of the mabels fried chicken. And man was it great! Looking for to going back!!
We sat outside and it was a beautiful night. The food was excellent as usual and the waitstaff did a great job. The food is high quality, and the prices are reasonable.
Kudos to Rick the owner who is always present and makes it a point to visit each table.
Food was very very good. Our server wasn't bad, but wasn't great either.
Very cold night and very windy for south Florida but management had three propane heaters going and we were prepared for the evening. It turned out to be a very enjoyable experience. The food is always great as is the service. We love Gaffords
The Gafford is my FAVORITE place to eat in Stuart. Food is always excellent and we always leave feeling happy :)
Excellent outdoor experience. Great service and well prepared generous portions. The cocktails were creative and fun, and the duck wings appetizer was odd yet delicious. Would definitely recommend. My husband had the meatloaf which was over the top delicious and I had the scallops which were cooked to perfection both entrees had very nice sides of wild rice and perfectly cooked green beans. The chocolate layer dessert with vanilla ice cream made the experience an overall perfect date night.
Amazing from start to finish. Chicken and biscuits light and tasty the street corn salad alone worth a trip back. All the entrees grouper and snapper all hits. Wish we had room for dessert. Our server was so attentive and helped us make hard choices as the menu is that good
Limited menu for Valentines Day. A little pricey.
I was amazing we loved the staff and the food 👏
We had a great dinner with even better service. The pork chop is one of the best, if not the best, regular dinner item and the Wagyu Steak special was out of this world. Wagyu doesn't come cheap but it was very good.
Another perfect meal at the Gafford....this time for Valentine’s Day. We ate outside and felt perfectly safe - plenty of space between tables. My man had The Gafford- a huge and delicious steak....unbelievably good! I had grilled swordfish that was so fresh that when I reheated the leftover the following day, it still was fresh and delicious. They also had Valentine’s Day special drinks...so good. If you haven’t been here yet, you are missing a treat!
Great service and food. A bit smoky inside, outside dining available!!
We had a very special Valentine's Day dinner in the outdoor seating area. Food and service were excellent!
I had the Grouper and my husband had the Filet and they were both amazing
The service was excellent, thank you Lauren. Our meal and drinks, as always, were perfect. Filet and Old Fashioned for me, Short Ribs and G&T for my wife. We tried the outdoor seating on a beautiful night and it really couldn't have been much better. Save for a pickup truck that drove by slowly blasting its music, it was a perfect night. The Gafford is a gem we're very lucky to have in Stuart.
Was so happy that The Gafford was able to bring dining out doors!! Forgot about the traffic and exhaust fumes, but all in all, it was a great experience. Wondering if there is a new chef. Food was good, but different somehow. (citing the cauliflower appetizer and Mabel's chicken in particular) Perhaps there is a new chef. We'll be back!!
Pleasant dining experience! Will be back!
Wonderful and consistent as always.
The food is consistently first class. Try the specials if you can. The special lobster and crab bisque was outstanding.
Nice and cozy atmosphere with a good variety of food that is unique and delicious.
The Gafford is our go to place in Stuart. The staff is amazing! Drinks are creative and well prepared. The food is EXCELLENT and the price is right. The owner is always walking around the dining room making sure everything is top notch.
