The Gafford is a wonderful restaurant! The food is awesome and the location is perfect, in the heart of the quaint city of Stuart. We are locals and have to say this is our very favorite place to dine!

The Gafford is good place to go after a show at the Lyric Theatre. It has a convenient location right in the heart of downtown Stuart. Unfortunately, the food is just average, and is kind of pricey for what you get.

We've dined here on numerous occasions and have always been happy with the excellent food and service. Portions are just right, the food is always tasty and the servers are friendly. You have to tried the Mabels Fried Chicken!!

Happy hour at the bar was really nice. Mitch is excellent as a bartender!! We had a delish appetizer. Gaffords version of a caprese salad. Then on to dinner. Busy but never felt rushed. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. Steak, Seafood, and specialty...More

I have been unable to categorize the Gafford and have visited several times. . It seems to try to be a fine dining establishment, with trendy combos on the menu at $30+ a plate. (They all sound like it should be good, but the flavors...More
