We cannot wait to go back this week for another round!! The hamburger was a mix of three meats and was unusually tasty. The hand cut chips were excellent! The ambiance was peaceful... More

My wife and I made the short trip from Vero Beach to The Gafford for our anniversary. I wish we were closer. Great staff and the food is nothing short of amazing. I am not generally a fan of crab but decided to give the fried green tomatoes a shot. I have never eaten anything as heavenly. We will definitely... More

Had happy hour drinks and a wonderful dinner. 2-1 drinks at happy hour. The blackened snapper was great. The avocado appetizer was amazing. Customer service was wonderful. Make sure you don't miss this one.

We love the 1/2 price on wine on Sundays as well as the food. Finally a fine local Rest. Without the massive TV monitors!

We have lived in Stuart for years but have never eaten there. They open at 4pm for cocktails and 5pm for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere of the restaurant. My wife had the Gafford a 20 oz bone in ribeye. It was cooked to perfection and melted in her mouth, or so she said. I had the... More

We make a trip to The Gafford frequently... It's a great neighborhood place where locals and visitors can come for dinner or a drink. My husband and I both enjoy the tuna tartare and the grilled avocado and we usually split a salad with grilled salmon. We've taken friends and family here for the full dinners and the fish is...

The Gafford is still our favorite place in town. Great service right up front. Generous poured drinks. Great food, always a couple of nice specials by Chef Taylor but the "usuals" on the menu are what we go for. Mable's chicken is always a "go to" choice. Tuna tartare appetizer is fantastic. It's always a great dinner with great atmosphere.
