Traveling to Georgia from Alabama for MegaMillion tickets; we like to try different places to eat. Admittedly, staying close to the interstate does not facilitate good selection, however, Gabe's was really worth the few blocks off the interstate. It is located in an old street-front building next to the railroad tracks in a perfect location for trendy businesses and food.... More

Have been here several times and never disappointed. Corn crab bisque is one of a kind. Everything on the menu is great - no need to get the top dollar stuff. One thing we enjoy is getting several appetizers to share and skipping an entree entirely. Come early because they don't take reservations and be warned - they don't seat... More

I can't believe an establishment of this quality is in such a small town. The best filet I've ever eaten! And the drink are great too. Wait times can be long on Friday nights...but it is worth the wait!!

We visited Gabes recently after being recommended by a friend. The food as well a service was outstanding! We had the Cajun eggrolls to start and they were fantastic. For our meals we had the special which was ribeye over garlic potatos with a mushroom cream sauce. The meat was great quality and the entire meal had so much flavor.... More

This place is outstanding. It specializes in Louisiana style Cajun food. The shrimp and grits are really good. I had the pork chop entree. It's a treat to eat here. Don't miss it if you are passing through on the interstate. It is an easy access to I-20.

We have often been in town visiting our son and it would happen to fall on Monday's. Finally, we were in Villa Rica on a Tuesday night and we wandered in around 7:00. Perfect time as the crowds were beginning to leave. We had a 15 minute wait and went to the bar for a drink. All our drinks were... More

We ate here last week and overall we were not disappointed. The special salmon was over peppered and salted, unable to eat it.the manager gave me a 50% credit on that Dish. I do recommend you try it if you are looking for a change in cuisine

I've been going to Gabes for at least 6-7 years and have never been disappointed. I recently got married and had Gabes cater the event and everyone was amazed by the food and service...Thanks Gabe!! Shrimp and Grits, steaks, burgers and the wine list bring me back again and again. Recommend trying one of Gabes Wine dinners too.

Thank Todd P
