Everything great, would help to have valet parking
Really deep menu with good choices from all food groups - service was spotty
The food is always great and staff is very friendly. We love The Gafford.
This was our second time at the Gafford and they have never disappointed. The food is always amazing, with many Keto options. Make sure to ask for Trevor, he provided service that was above and beyond our expectations.
We ordered the Scottish Salmon and the meatloaf, both were excellent The waiter, sorry forgot his name, was terrific, always one step ahead of us. Never had a bad meal or bad service. Even when busy, well worth the wait.
We went on a Sunday evening- all drinks, including wine bottles, were half price! We were seated right away at a comfortable table for 2. It was somewhat busy (especially in the bar) and it took a while to get our bottle of wine. However, once that arrived (it was excellent), the timing for the rest of the meal was great. We ordered the meat and cheese plate for an appetizer - it was good, but there was only one selection of meat. I would have preferred at least 2. There were 3 large triangles of cheese, however, and they were all very good. We shared a Ceasar salad and the restaurant split it for us (we did not ask them to - nice touch) and there was plenty for the two of us. I would have preferred a little more flavor in the dressing - it was somewhat bland. My wife ordered the coconut encrusted Mahi Mahi and it was very good. I had the Gafford special steak - a 20 ounce bone in Ribeye, medium rare - and it was outstanding. Cooked to perfection and very flavorful. It came with a slab of butter on the side which added to the deliciousness. Both meals came with green beans and they were also cooked to perfection - crisp and very flavorfull. My steak came with house made macaroni and cheese, which was a perfect match to the steak. Too full for desert, but all in all, a great meal.
Excellent restaurant with superb food and service. And a very attentive, thoughtful owner - Rick Wilson.
The food and service were great but I had an 8:00pm reservation for my bday and we wernt seated until until 830, which I didn’t care for. Other then that it was amazing
Very accommodating manager and staff that made our anniversary dinner special. We will certainly be back.
My Husband and I went to dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food is amazing. Delicious!! Wonderful flavors, portion, presentation and freshness!! We have recently moved from Boatin to Florida and The Gafford has won our hearts. Just a polite note-the only misfortune was sitting near the high traffic bar threshold. This resulted in bar noise and my husbands chair being hit by staff. Just be mindful where you sit a party for two. All is forgiven, as the meal was outstanding. Thank you Chefs!!
I was not as wowed as I had hoped to be. The room was noisy, my date's seat was in the way of the pass through to the bar and my salmon though a good piece of fish cooked with no spices. I asked for no sauce as the versions they offered were not anything I wanted. I asked for lemon, salt and pepper and it was grilled dry. I asked for the vegetable of the day which was green beans and a little salad with it as I did not want starch. They refused. Unimaginative. My date enjoyed his skirt-steak.
I always enjoy going to the Gafford. I dream of their Buratta!! Soooo good!!!
We became "local' a year ago, probably 6th or 7th visit, always great!
Had a wonderful anniversary dinner. Food was outstanding as usual. Wish the service could have been the same.
My new favorite restaurant in the area. We come from Port St Lucie and it is well worth the drive !
Always good. Menu variety, service great and the food is always hot and delicious. They act like they want your business that evening and the future. That's why we keep coming back.
Great find in Stuart. Small privately owned restaurant with a variety of well prepared dishes and excellent service. Our server was very attentive and accommodating with our special requests. Very relaxing ambience. Highly recommend the double cut pork chop.
This is a great neighborhood spot. Cant wait to go back!
Very happy with our visit to this restaurant. It was our first time there. Food was great. I had a very interesting twist on the bourbon old-fashioned that I really liked
Two bone rib pork chop with apples and walnuts was incredible. Never had a pork chop that tender and cooked to perfection. My wife had the individual meatloaf she loved.
Got the best table in the house, high top by the front window! Great service!
I can never say enough about how wonderful the Gafford is! Every time my husband and dine here it always surpasses our expectations. We tried the Fried Cheesecake dessert with caramel drizzle and vanilla ice cream and it was out of this world. We look forward to eating here again as it’s out absolute favorite restaurant.
My hubby and I went on a date to the restaurant and everything was excellent. We will definitely return.
Terrific place that we like to go for our "special occasions". Although I try different menu items I seem to always come back to their "lamb lollies". My favorites. Everyone was very attentive and the meal was delicious.
Love this place cocktails were amazing! Dinner even better. Only negative was our waiter was a bit snarky maybe just a flat personality. There were so many others supporting him it did not affect our service or distract from a great dining experience. This place is really great little restaurant my favorite in the Stuart area.
An excellent restaurant with great food and service. And an owner that cares - Mr. Walker. Although we live almost an hour away, we plan to visit the Gafford regularly. Wonderful evening for my birthday!
“The Gafford “ rib eye steak was tough and scant and very disappointing for price of $38.00.
Superb food and service.
Always great, good food, good wine list and outstanding professional servers.
The waiter recommended 2 entrees: the fried chicken and the signature rib steak. I chose the rib steak, and it was good but not worth a recommendation. My dinner guest had the lamb which was better. The salad was good. We ordered mussels, which was one of their special items, and about half of them didn’t open. If a mussel doesn’t open during cooking it means that it was dead and should not be eaten. The waiter didn’t know that and offered to bring us a tool to pry them open. Didn’t take him up on that. Lastly, the noise level was such that it was impossible to have a conversation without shouting.
Tremendous dinner. I had the Maple Pecan glazed Pork Chop. Incredible. This place is one of my new favs. Highly recommend.
My husband and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary at The Gafford on Saturday, 9/15/18. We had a reservation at 7, arrived a little early to enjoy a cocktail at the bar. We were promptly sat at 7! The service and food were outstanding and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Definitely will come back! Thank you!
The Gafford never disappoints! Our go-to for a fresh, quality meal and drinks.
The food here is excellent. Amazing service and ambience as well.
Best place in town!!!
Great food, friendly servers. Ingredients are locally sourced.
Disappointed in our old favorite, The Gafford. Ordered one meal gluten free, but that request was not followed and had to send the dish back. Another fish entree was raw and also had to send it back. My meal and my husband's meal were both flavorless. We've had much better. Hope it was just an off night.
Excellent seafood selection and service. Great Happy Hour menu.
Amazing food and exceptional service
One of our favorite restaurants! Food is always amazing. Great friendly staff!
