Quaint, Victorian Restaurant. Beautiful inside or sit on the porch or outside. Can't go wrong with your choice. 5 * in atmosphere, food and service.

The place is beautiful, quaint and historic. Sadly, I would say it ended there. The liver pate was awful. The Caesar salad was awful. The Salmon was awful. The Scallops were awful. The cold peach soup with lobster was nice and refreshing. It was a tasting menu and the entree portions were beyond tiny. My wife and I heard and... More

One word describes The Gables... "SPECTACULAR!" From the most amazing romantic setting (especially sitting on the front porch), the polished service, food presentation, to the unbelievable flavor of each bite that you just want to savor it...slowly! This visit we ordered from the Chef's Grazing Menu sampling multiple dishes on the menu - each dish was unbelievable! And, the serving... More

From the refined atmosphere to the romantic setting, from the accomplished waitstaff to the inspired cuisine, The Gables provides the finest dining experience possible. The ownership (Sandra and Steve) do not overlook a single aspect of what makes a dining experience memorable. In side either the elegant porch or dining room, diners are surrounded by classic piano music, well-tended for... More

After an initial hiccup with the hostess and our reservation the rest of the evening was completely enjoyable. The atmosphere outside was enchanting. Service was wonderful. The special sausage and peppers with handmade gnocchi was magnificent.

After reading all of the reviews about The Gables restaurant, I was excited to eat here only my experience was less than satisfying and disappointing, to say the least. First off, our waiter was pushy and annoying. He stopped by after every bite to ask how it was. How awkward is that? Also, he seemed like summer hired help, not... More
