One of our favorite places to go for happy hour. Great drink specials and half price appetizers. Crab cakes to die for, solid crab meat. The downside is the half price appetizers only goes to 5pm. Mitch the bartender is one of the best in town. It's very crowded in season so plan to arrive at least by 3:45 to... More

This place is amazing!!! A bit on the pricey side, but worth every every penny! You have to make reservations, unless you go to bar area. We thoroughly enjoyed the service and food. Will be back soon :)

The food is well made with care. The wait staff are friendly and go the extra mile. Have never had a bad experience at this restaurant. All the specials are worth going for but you got to try the fried chicken.

Excellent restaurant - I enjoyed celebrating my birthday with a dear friend. Service and food were fine, just a little on the pricey side.

Food is ok, good, not great....and for the price tag it should be great! The atmosphere is very dark. A little too dark for my taste.

Spent a lovely evening at The Gifford in downtown Stuart. Warm, inviting atmosphere was exactly what we needed after a cold, rainy day. The server was attentive and knowledgeable without being intrusive. Nice wine selection. Food was outstanding. Started with the burrata appetizer, an amazing combination of heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil pesto. Huge portion! Enough for 3 to... More

The Gafford is a top tier eatery and you would be hard pressed to find a better steak between Stuart and West Palm Beach. There is no wonder why the place is always packed and reservations are highly suggested. The signature Gafford bone in ribeye is a must, but plenty of other items are just as good. The value is...

We ordered the crab cake appetizer which was fantastic. Never had a crab cake with so much crab meat. Absolutely delicious. We then had the meatloaf which had so much flavor. Great choice. Dessert was the apple tart with vanilla bean ice cream. Heavenly!!

Our party of two arrived about 9:00 after the dinner rush on a Friday night. We enjoyed the shrimp and grits which had extra seasoning per our request. The shrimp were huge and cooked perfectly! Not dry and not translucent, Probably the best flavored shrimp I have had in a restaurant. The service was perfectly attentive yet not obtrusive. Although... More
