We drove from Birmingham to Oxford for our 28th anniversary dinner. I highly recommend sitting at the chef's counter...it makes you feel very involved..the staff is friendly and the food is excellent! Try the tomato salad..I had the shrimp and grits and my wife had the pecan encrusted grouper..and bread pudding for dessert..Everything was unbelievable..My highest recommendation.

Farm to table is an understatement! I was in HEAVEN. The owner /chef is a vegetable genius. His pairings and prep is just amazing! My salmon melted in my mouth! Fresh is an understatement.

It has been 2 years since I last ate here. The first meal was a Friday night dinner with my wife. I had an outstanding filet mignon. The house steak sauce was not my favorite however. It reminded me of a thickened A-1 sauce. Luckily the steak stood on its own. My wife had a tasty, melt in your mouth... More

The evening began with drinks at the small bar, followed by dinner in the private dinning room (we were a party of 12). The dinner started off with fire pit roasted oysters (they were fantastic) and we then move to our main. I had an 8 oz filet that I'm still thinking about. The cooking fire pit imparts a great...

My wife and I stayed in Oxford for the weekend. While there we wanted to try the top rated restaurants in the area. Garfrerick's Cafe was the last one we tried before leaving on Sunday afternoon. Before writing the rest of this review, I will say that it was Father's Day, and it was at the time of day when... More

We had a great lunch at Garfrerick's today. They had a vegetable lunch buffet that really filled the bill for my family including grandparents and children. What a pleasant surprise to find this cafe in Anniston not far from 1-20. The outside of the building is not remarkable but the decor inside is quite nice and the service was great.... More

We stop in the Anniston area when we drive from Dallas to Fayetteville, NC on our way to visit grand kids. We finally hit Oxford when the cafe was open, and we had dinner on a weeknight. Everything was excellent. They have an interesting, sophisticated menu and full bar. My wife had a seafood cocktail, then rice and grits. I... More

I have eaten here many times and have never been let down by the food or service. Everything always tastes fresh. I cannot get enough of Garfrericks grilled oysters on the half shell flavored with garlic and parmesan or the Pan Seared Diver Scallops are awsome too. Every is awsome.

This was unexpected. The setting outside was a strip center. The setting inside , though, was very elegant. The food was some of the best any of us have tasted. The service was very prompt, accurate and friendly. Out of our way but we will go back just for the experience.

Whether special of the day or some of their standard fare-always excellent food and excellent service-their bread is outstanding and the food is always fresh. One of our favorites!
