We have always had good food at the Stable but I have to agree with other reviews that the salad bar is limited. It is good but not great. The restaurant has a very relaxed feel about it; casual dress is fine here. It is easy to get into the parking lot and there is ample parking. We have eaten... More

I was extremely disappointed at the food quality here. The overpriced salad bar was very limited. My husband's meal was just basic for the price. Will not be back.

This restaurant is a great place to stop when traveling north or south on US-31. It has easy on and off, no matter which direction you are traveling. The staff is very friendly, the menu has many different items to choose from. The all-you-can-eat soup/salad bar and the beer battered shrimp basket are a couple of our family favorites, along...

Great portions, soup and salad bar had that and much more! Great value! Wait staff was good. Very kid friendly. We went at... More

We have been to Stable Inn on several occasions now for their all you can eat shrimp dinner (Wednesday). The beer battered shrimp are awesome! The steamed shrimp are good as well. The best part is, you don't have to stick to any one kind of shrimp you're able to switch it up the next time you order. The prime... More

3 out of the 4 of our party ordered the Rib-eye steak at the recommendation of our waitress. The steak was described as an aged tender thick cut of steak. What each of us received was an undercooked tough piece poor cut of meat. This had to be the cheapest selection of meat on the market. I grill steaks often... More
