We have eaten three times at Red Gables. On each occasion the food has been consistently excellent. I'm so pleased we have such an outstanding restaurant so close to where we live. On our last visit we had calamari and a crab cake for an appetizer. Both were totally delicious. The salads and bread are made the way they should... More

Great Steaks, Wonderful Atmosphere and personal attention from the owner make dinner feel like a "Special Occasion" meal.

Everything is amazing. The fresh baked bread is always good, salad is fresh, potato is always done right, and steak is perfect. My favorite restaurant hands down, and I've eaten everywhere from Ft. Myers, FL to Fairbanks, AK. Nowhere compares.

Was recommended going here and couldn't have been more happy. The owner came out and talked to us able the food before and after we ate and guaranteed it would be the best steak I ever ate. I can't say it was the best, but I can't think of a better one. Will be back for sure.

We were staying at Cedar Point and went to try this place. We were blown away by the freshness and quality of the food. The owner Jaime, came to our table and make some great recommendations of what was fresh and available to order. Every course was of the highest quality and absolutely delicious. I wish I lived closer to... More

This restaurant is the perfect place to take out of town guests or have a romantic dinner for two. The chef here is passionate about the meals he serves and likes you to get exactly what you want and to enjoy your meal. This is not somewhere you go to just "eat and run," it's an experience. Come here when... More

Best food and service we've had in awhile!! My boyfriend and I were in the area for Cedar Point. One night being his birthday we were looking for a nice steak dinner. Being a more particular steak eater he wanted certified angus beef and not looking for a chain restaurant. Red Gables was the absolute perfect place! The owner Jamie... More

Every time have visited it has been a great experience. The chef must love what he does because it comes through in his cooking. This was not just a meal but an experience and great social gathering.
