It's the BEST, love everything about dining at the Gafford!!!
First time and loved it! Drinks and meals were delicious. Tuna was exceptional!
Always a treat!!! Delicious!! Great food and service
Always and pleasure to visit this establishment. Great staff, food and atmosphere.
It was a lovely meal, and we will be back again.
The food was fantastic!
Always a fantastic meal! Exceptional service! Hometown feel with gourmet menu!
Food always delicious. Service great. Menu changes. Everyone is very professional. The owner always stops by your table which in my opinion makes a great restaurant.
Amazing food and excellent service. Dining next to the chef while cooking is a unique experience that also creates a lot of traffic. Given a choice we hope to be seated in the front dining area next time. We will certainly return as all of the food was absolutely perfect.
This was one of the finest meals I’ve had in Florida. The service was impeccable, the drinks were delicious and the food we ordered was perfectly prepared.
Server TJ was attentive and knowledgeable. Did not rush us. Very personable. Food excellent.
We are never disappointed with our meals, the service, and the overall atmosphere at The Gafford.
Very disruptive party seated next to our table. No consideration for others dining. Noise level was over the top
loud & obviously had too much to drink. Offensive language & disrespectful to server Cassie. Not our usual experience at our favorite hometown establishment.
The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Very nice outdoor table.
Thanks James for your Excellent Service!
Love this local gem of a restaurant ran by a super nice family! The food is always great, with plentiful portions, fair prices, great service and stiff drinks. They always have individual coloring books and crayons for kids which my daughter really enjoys.
Delicious. Roasted cauliflower fabulous as was my swordfish. Carrot cake yummy! Excellent spacing for safety outside. Very safe! Heaters for cold days. Highly recommend.
Never had a bad meal here. When visitors are in town, this is our go to place. Swordfish prep can't be any better than here.
Very tasteful and happy place . Don’t miss one of Stuarts finest restaurants.
Fabulous place. Great atmosphere. Delicious food
We sat outside and the adjacent street was somewhat busy with traffic and passing car noise but nothing too bad. We were serenaded by a gentleman playing the sax across the street and this just added to the amazing experience. The ambiance, food, drinks and service were perfect! The old fashioned was spot on - not too sweet and delivered a nice buzz. My girl had a Paloma and a marg, both very good. We ordered the roasted cauliflower to start and it was delicious and large. For entrees we had the sweet potato Chile reñeno which was an item we hadn’t seen on a menu before and were pleasantly surprised. Very tasty! However, the star of the night (aside from the sax player) was the meatloaf dish! Wow! This is a must. It was the best we’ve had. So tender and juicy. The menu states “while it lasts” which leads me to believe it sells out regularly and I can see why. The desserts all sounded amazing but we were too full to have any. Our server was great too! They provide a fun option on the menu that if you liked your meal, you can buy a round of beers for the chefs for $10. They definitely deserved it so we bought them a round. Overall, great dining experience!
Always a fantastic meal and service! The owner truly cares and is always there walking around, helping his staff, checking in and helping serve the food! A must in Stuart!
Service was amazing. The apps were awesome. The Gafford signature steak, no flavor. My wife’s meal was amazing also. Can’t win them all. Will still go back.
The restaurant was very crowded and we waited over 25 minutes for our reservation. We finally sat down in the bar area which was available when we first walked in. I mentioned that to a waitress but she said it was reserved. The table was very tight due to the lack of space between them. The owner greeted us and apologized for the wait. He served us a charcuterie on the house because of the seating issue. The food was very good as usual but two of the main courses which I would have preferred were no longer available. We finally got our main course after 9 pm which was a lot later than I prefer. I have been to the Gafford many times and the food is good but this time I was a bit disappointed.
One of our favorite restaurants in Stuart. Never disappoints.
Great service and our meal was delicious
As always….thoroughly enjoyed the Gafford! Great place!
Love The Gafford. Service was friendly and efficient. I had the duck legs and Mexican corn and avocado salad. Loved them both! The dressing on the salad was fabulous and the duck was cooked just right.
Excellent food we would go back.
The best meatloaf ever!! Great food here! I definitely recommend The Gafford!
Food was outstanding! Service was great. Would definitely recommend!
The food was EXCELLENT with the exception of the meatloaf and asparagus...The meatloaf was burnt around the edges and the asparagus was too large at the ends and not cooked...hard as a rock.
Our server LAUREN was AWESOME...will ask for her again the next time we make our reservation which will probably be at the end of the month.
Amazing food and service. What a special place and my food was cooked perfectly. I love the Gafford Steak meal and my guest loved the take with Shrimp and Grits with a tropical twist.
You can always expect superior service and fantastic food. There are a lot of choices for eating out but the Gafford should be at the top of everybody's list.
Very happy with our decision to dine prior to a performance at the Lyric:)
Drinks and carrot cake desert were great. My short rib was also fantastic. However, my wife’s encrusted snapper was a little too salty for her taste. Still a great place with excellent staff.
Lobster bisque was great. Swordfish and fried chicken were both excellent. We will be back again.
Always excellent! Our favorite place, for every occasion!
