We had a wonderful evening with friends. As usual the food and wine as well as the service was excellent!
Great food and service !!! Loud and full of bustle. Definitely adding it to the our restaurant rotation. The Main Street is temporarily closed for improvements, so parking can be a little scarce specially on weekends or during showtimes at the Lyric .
The Gafford was an awesome experience and the food was outstanding. We had a table right by kitchen. Was fun to watch the Chef and team at work. They also had an option where you could buy the kitchen crew a beer...for a mere $7. Was well worth it to reward the hard working group.
Excellent food & service; right here in downtown Stuart. it doesn't get any better than that!
Our first visit to The Gafford and the overall experience was excellent.
The Gafford is our staple dinner choice for any special occasion or just to make another great date night out. For those on a date where one likes fish and the other steak, you won't find any better balanced option anywhere in town. Same goes for chicken, salad, or even for vegetarians. There is no bad option on the menu for anyone! Great overall restaurant we hope to continue enjoying for years to come.
I received a birthday coupon online from The Gafford, and I invited a new friend to join me (she had never been there). She ordered Mable's chicken and I had a Mahi special. Both were excellent. I was a little surprised that my birthday wasn't acknowledged....which is OK. Just thought they'd provide a special dessert. Actually, I don't think our waiter asked if we wanted dessert. It was a good experience (I've been there a number of times, and the meals are served very attractively).
Best restaurant in Stuart
The food was absolutely delicious! For a table of six we each ordered a variety of food and had a chance to try it all. So good and worth the price. We were in a spot off to the side and it felt slightly crammed ( it’s not very big inside ). Our server was very attentive to us.
Our dinner was delicious as always. The staff was very accommodating...and definetely took time to advise us on certain things we were not sure about...we've been there at least 6 times since we recently discovered your restaurant and our families and friends have thanked us many times for the recommendation... Love it...have not been disappointed ever since we discovered your restaurant...Looking forward to seeing you again soon... Rae M & Sal
Best meatloaf you can find anywhere. Great restaurant with great, fresh food.
A welcoming environment, great food, attentive service, very accommodating. Noiss can get bad as the evening progresses--reserve early if you want to avoid that.
As always The Gafford was excellent. Excellent service and excellent food. It all began with the hostess. She stated that our table as requested was ready for us. The only downside was the person who was serving the water: he was annoying and we had never seen him before. However in the big picture that was very minimal.
Always a great evening! Nice sized drinks and nicely prepared food.
This was out first time at The Gafford. We would recommend it to others as well as go back again. The Tuesday special’s from the bar were well worth the price. The service was very good. The environment was laud back and casual.
We told the waitstaff my wife had allergies to cream. The dish was sent w cream and the waiter would not take back. My wife was sick all night. My Gafford steak did not live up to the hype (underdone). Our waitperson did a very good job and seemed almost "afraid" to send the incorrect dish back.
The food is some of the best areas in St Lucie County
Every time we go, it is absolutely amazing! The Blue Crab and Chorizo Dip is hands down the best dip I’ve ever had! The food is beyond great! The service is exceptional! Must make a reservation while in season or you’ll be waiting a while. Such a great experience!
This local favorite always delivers. Always something new and interesting on the menu.
Always outstanding! Fantastic homemade unique ice cream! Corn bread Apple was delicious! Perfect dinner for my husband’s birthday! Thank you for another wonderful meal!
I was very surprised how delicious the meatload was. My husband will not eat meatloaf and he had it the following night (at home). The portion was too much for one person.
25th anniversary. The food was extremely good and reasonably priced. Prompt and courteous service. Memorable moments for my wife and I on our special day.

Crab cakes were amazing! If you're looking for a romantic night for 2...it's a bit noisy but it was a great meal and good atmosphere.
We had a nice dinner with old friends we had not seen in years. Great atmosphere.
GREAT VARIETY ON MENU, GREAT SERVICE, ATTENTIVE FOLKS! EVERYTHING WELL-PREPARED AND SERVED ON TIME.
The Gafford is a very nice restaurant - it would be nice if there were more vegetarian options, but there are enough to have a great meal. Half-price wines are available Wednesday nights, which is a great bargain.
We have been eating here since they opened and it has never disappointed! Taylor is a gifted chef. We were vegan for a year and he even catered to that. Thank goodness eating fish and meat again because he does everything perfectly. Love this restaurant!
Food was outstanding.. great place for a memorable meal.. looking forward to our next visit
Great place , you can’t go wrong here , happy hour or dinner
My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary this past Sunday. The service and food were excellent. Our waiter Cody explain the menu and the specials and made great suggestions. The only drawback to the entire evening was that we sat near the kitchen where it was little bit smoky from the cooking. Aside from that, we had an awesome time and will certainly be back.
Excellent food. The four of us had steaks with the mac n cheese side and it was outstounding. The filet mignon as well as the bone in ribeye was delicious and cooked perfectly. Our dishes were delivered from the cooks kitchen to our table in a quick minute so all of our dinners were served hot. Nice wine list and wines by the glass. We will be back.
We started with the soup of the day...crawfish bisque. It came out hot. The texture was creamy, smooth and loaded with crawfish.
Rack of lamb...served medium rare as ordered. The ribs were seasoned with just enough spice. Came with crisp green beans and delicious mash potatoes.
Mabel's chicken...Mabel, Mabel, Mabel. What can be said for some of the best flavored crispy fried chicken breast.
Never a bad meal
The cheese plate was a wonderful blend of offerings. One of the best we’ve had
We had a reservation and were seated right away, which was nice. Our server was with us promptly and we had our food within 15 minutes of ordering. We ordered the filet and lamb lollipops. Both dishes were excellent and well worth the price. The wait staff was very attentive and on top of everything. The one negative thing I would say is we sat in a high top table on the kitchen side in the corner which was very cozy until they seated the table next to us and then we were very cramped. I could barely even get out of my seat to leave the table without asking them to scoot in. But otherwise it was exceptional.
The Gafford is the best restaurant around! Staff is very courteous and attentive. The food is outstanding. My favorite restaurant in Martin County!
Chose this restaurant due to the positive reviews and it was good. The crab cakes were the best we have ever had, mostly meat and a large portion for an appetizer. We also had the roasted salad wonderful. For entrees we had the salmon which was a little oily but the rest of the plate was good. Maybe Scottish salmon is oily? The other entrée we ordered was the confit chicken thighs. It wasn't chicken thighs but a chicken leg. It was good but not exactly what was expected. Too full for dessert and if in the area again will come back if only for those great crab cakes!
The Gafford never disappoints. Tyler, the chef, always does a phenomenal job. From apps to entrees, everything cooked to perfection. Always our first choice when dining out.
Fabulous as always!
