Very enjoyable evening and the food was very good. Compliment one of your managers who helped straighten out a gift certificate issue. We will definitely return in the future.
Absolutely best dinner in town1
Staff expert and engaging (our waiter Trevor very knowledgable of all preparations and best service), proprietor friendly and stopped by for quality check, great bar with expert drink. Great selection , from starter to dessert.
We've been going to the Gafford for years. The food is great.
This was our first visit to the Gafford, and we made a reservation since we weren't sure how crowded it would be. It was uncrowded when we arrived, but as dinner progressed people started filtering and more and more.
They offer an amazing selection of just about anything you could want. we opted for the homemade meatloaf, and we were not disappointed. We had plenty to take home for lunch the next day. The food was amazing, the service was incredible, and we absolutely loved it. We look forward to many more visits.
Fabulous as always!
The Gafford is our go to restaurant never disappoints
Great spot in downtown Stuart. Usually packed in season. One of our favorite to go to with our friends. The pork chops are to die for.
Chef Taylor, Rick and the entire team are amazing!
Be sure to try their soup of the day!
We had an amazing meal. The meatloaf was the bomb!
The Gafford never disappoints. Meals were great service was fabulous. Highly recommend for a great meal!
Enjoyed a wonderful dinner with my Mom. It’s her favorite restaurant and she raved about the dirty martini.
Better than the last time I was there. Fried chicken is outstanding and the carrot cake is the best anywhere.
comfortable setting. Food was great. service was excellent. very laid back atmosphere,
One of my favorite restaurants in Stuart. The food is always scrumptious and our waitress Kim is the best ever. I can't wait to go back.
A go to for date night, business dinner or any celebration. Best Tuna Tar Tar around! And the Poblano Yukon Potato Soup was fabulous. As all the Chef’s soups are. Outstanding service every time. We love the Gafford!
Always superb! Many thanks for the past years. Looking forward to the future.
Service, food and drinks were outstanding!!!!
We booked the reservation and advised that there was a birthday guest in the party. Received a “happy birthday” upon entering and being seated. Lovely. Great service and food, by far.
Upon asking if the restaurant offered a military discount we informed that they don’t. While paying we were informed that they do offer a discount, but for active duty military only. First experience of this nature I have had.
Nice restaurant and team. Ambiance, service and food excellent.
Service by server Bree was excellent, as usual. We both ordered the asparagus and cheese bisque which had a good flavor but was too salty. Our entrees, different chicken dishes, were both excellent.
We love the Gafford. It is one of our favorite places in town and will continue to be. That said, the meatloaf, which is generally a GO TO dish, was not up to par this time. It didn’t have that nice dense and charbroiled feel. It tasted of way too much bread and filler. We will definitely come again but wanted to share some honest feedback. All else was excellent as usual.
Always a delight to eat at Gafford. Excellent food and service!
The food & service were super! Loved the outside dining area!!
Fantastic dinner at a reasonable price. The service was great. I made reservations as I know this place can be very busy.
Great food, service was fine, bar was a bit backed up. Diners were noisy and very casual not in keeping with the restaurant suggested attire.
This was our first visit and we came away very impressed. We had requested an outside table which we were able to get-- the outside tables were distanced well from one-another.
The meal was extremely good-- the service from Janine was friendly and right on point.
This was an anniversary dinner for us and we had a great experience. My wife went with an Ahi appetizer which was served nicely and large enough to be a main course. This was served cold as it should be-- many places don't chill this enough! My wife then had a manin course which was a special of lamb chops in a nice cherry sauce along with mashed potatoes and green beans. She enjoyed this very much.
I went with the soup of the day which was a delectable Mushroom Bisque with beef tenderloin pieces in it and a tad bit of cheese to finish it. The soup flavoring was outstanding! I then went with the Fried Chicken and was not disappointed at all. The chicken coating was flaky and light and the sides were nice as well (same sides as my wife's). The chicken is definitely a nice sized portion.
We were both too full for dessert and thought it was very reasonable for the meal. We will be back!!
The spaghetti squash and pork chop were to DYE for
Excellent food and very clean, the staff was excellent
Our favorite restaurant in town! Always great food and great service!
Food was delicious as always!
Undercut family owned restaurant with exceptional staff and food
The proverbial “hole in the wall” gem. The kitchen is great, wine and cocktails great, service on point. Would definitely return
Food was ok. Our plates called for a type of sauce. We ask about it and it was pointed out. It really look very liquid instead of creamy. It basically look like water with may some flavor but didn’t notice.
The food was delicious and service was excellent. Everything was priced fairly, given the generous poriton sizes.
Food was outstanding and so was the service!!!! We definitely will be back!!!!
Great. Everyone was very pleased
Our reservations set us in the bar are and it was very noisy.
You can always count on a great meal and service at the Gafford
Our waitress Bree was on top of our every need. She provided great service, made sure our drinks were always full, offered suggestions on the menu, and provided great service. The chef Taylor came over to ask our meal were. We never disappointed at The Gafford. Whether it’s a business meal, family in town, or just out with the kids for a burger.
We eat here often and The Gafford never disappoints! Excellent food, service and atmosphere.
Always a nice evening out!
