Excellent service really really good food!
Great drinks and appetizers... but the main entrees... like an identity crisis. It's June and my short ribs came with sweet potatoes. Thats a fall veg. The menu said it came with cheddar mash. But I got spicy sweet potatoes. Just weird. My husband got the grouper and again the wild rice side felt heavy for June. For the amount of great reviews this place gets across yelp, trip advisor and just word of mouth it was a let down.
I always love to treat my clients to the Gafford. Love Rick and his family and staff! Thanks for a great evening. Food was amazing.
The service sucked. The host we impersonal and we were stuck next to a large loud party of 8
Our second visit over the past 3 weeks. Loved our first for ambiance , menu, and wonderful employees .... the only disappointing that first list was the filet ... grey on the outside ... ok as I ordered inside .. but simply not great for taste and tenderness. None the less so much going back ... last eve. Nice but small 2 table ... next to a lot of noise .. and the front window. fine... great server Jannine ... found the menus we loved from a few weeks earlier.. the cesare was great and crispy and not to much cheese .. but one that had real taste and good and lots of anchovies. Last eve was good and fine but not just the same. I had the hamburger (without bun and chips) ... perfectly done (rare) and well plated ... but was not "off the griddle" .. yes melted cheese .. but just warm on the burger. But the grilled avocado .. and the grits and shrimp are simply BRILLIANT ... particularly the avocado So whatever you are doing.. this is a great restaurant ... well conceived and remarkable employees .. and food that is good to Brilliant ... and worthy more than one try ...
Lovely food and waitstaff. Highly recommend
My favorite restaurant in Stuart! Always delicious with an efficient and courteous staff. Highly recommend The Gafford.
We had a wonderful time the food was amazing we tried the crabcakes, the meatloaf, and the pork chop and everything was good. This is definitely one of our favorite restaurants now.
My birthday. The only negative was apparently they could not find my reservation even though I had text and email confirmation. We ended up at a high top in the bar area which was not exactly as we planned but we had a great server and good food.
Great food. Fast service
Amazing service and food as always. Try the smoked duck wings. A fun treat. Bbbsr
Great restaurant. One of our favorites.
Great restaurant,delicious food.
The food is great and consistent. I had fish and my husband had a steak, both were cooked perfectly and beautifully presented.
Absolutely enjoyable. Our waitress Lauren was fantastic and very knowledgeable. The food was cooked to perfection and fresh. A place we highly recommend and we will be going back to again.!
Great experience. Food and service was excellent. Would definitely recommend!
Always exceptional service and food. They make everyone feel like family from your first visit. You gotta try the pineapple tito's! Leighanna at the bar is ON IT! Always a delight!
We tried the Snapper and the flavors were amazing, but let me tell you about the 6 layer carrot cake... thought I'd died and gone to heaven. I WILL revisit for both:)
The Gafford is an excellent dinner choice every thine. Quality ingredients prepared deliciously and since we don’t eat carbs, they easily adapt the order to accommodate your needs. The duck wings are delicious and crispy and the roasted cauliflower with red pepper cream sauce is fantastic. The fresh fish options are the best!!! We live it here. Thank you. Trevor, our server was most attentive.
Great food...great drinks...we will be back soon to try more items.
Family in town. Food is always delicious and our waitress was amazing.
Overall a wonderful restaurant ... and our first visit. We did have a reservation and important ... came a bit earlier and enjoyed the bar before we were moved to our table. Two good an fun bartenders ... and a very helpful server. Food:
Perfect Cesare salad. Terrific corn salad. A spectacular and very special hamburger .... tried the grilled shrimp also terrific. The only disappointment was the filet ... I asked for it rare and it was perfectly done but it did not feel or looked seared on the grille. Was more “grey” in color ... more like sous vide looking. Without not having that seared top and bottom is was just ok ... not great.
Overall ... look forward to our next visit.
Loren was great server and food was excellent as always
Not worth it, won’t be going back. Food was overpriced and overdone for no reason. Only good thing was service
Another fabulous night full of great food and drinks coupled with great service. This is easily becoming a go to place for us. We've never been disappointed.
Favorite restaurant by far...atmosphere and service are excellent and the food is wonderful
We had a wonder dinner! Starting with the bread things started off great! And then we were shocked at the crab cake appetizers! Based on the price we expected something much smaller - what a great value! As we are from Chesapeake area we are picky about crab cakes. These were good!
Then we had Scottish Salmon and the swordfish for dinner, both which were were excellent! And the service was excellent, with other servers noticing we could use another drink!
Our Gafford experience was, as always, superb! All of our dishes from grouper to meat loaf were excellent and our server, Loran was fun while providing excellemt service.
Food was outstanding as usual the service was wonderful made for a nice evening out.
Always great service, delicious food and libations.
My son's favorite restaurant; he loves Mabel's Chicken. Whenever he has a special event at school or we have reason to celebrate, he always picks The Gafford when we ask him where he would like to go for dinner.
We had reservations to sit outside, but unforturnatly, the weather was suppose to be rainy so I got a call earlier in the day and asked if I wanted to change to inside to be safe. I said yes because I wanted to eat at the Gafford, even though it ended up not raining, but I did appreciate the option.
I felt a little in the way seeing as our table was a smaller table then all the others and was right next to the entrance to the bar. Lots of traffic going in and out.
Other then that, service was great, food was awesome.
Our fourth time at The Gifford and it was consistently fabulous! Apps: Burratta, Cauliflower, Corn Salad. Entrees: Grouper, Pork Chops, Mabel’s Fried Chicken, Tuna, and Pasta. Dessert: creme brûlée. Everything was delicious!
We enjoyed everything about The Gafford. The food was exceptional. We enjoyed the macadamia snapper and the swordfish special. The presentation was as amazing as the freshness of all ingredients. The service was exceptional and we enjoyed eating outdoors on their patio with the evening breeze. They also have a great wine list and very good selection by the glass. It was a lovely evening with amazing food. We will definitely be back soon!
had dinner with a friend who has never eaten here was he impressed.
Ended up with an outdoor table, and very happy to enjoy our wonderful meal there. Food was superb, as always. My friend and I split one of the Tuesday specials, Tuna Tartar with housemade guacamole and wontons. We both ordered one of the specials, pretzel crusted grouper, wild rice and broccolini. Very happy to be able to take leftovers home for another meal. The Gafford never disappoints.
Always good dinner choices and specials highly recommended
We had great drinks, great food and even better service
The Gafford has the best food in the Stuart area in my opinion. Being a plant-based eater, it is sometimes difficult to find the right dish. I let the team know I was coming and that my preference was a vegan dish. They prepared an outstanding portobello mushroom entrée. My wife had a snapper. The food is always outstanding there.
Love the place and the food!
