We heard many nice things about The Gafford. We were seated at a table across from the open kitchen. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The menu is not large but there were a number of appealing choices. The burrata appetizer with the warm roasted cherry tomatoes would have been better served on a larger plate, as it was... More

The hustle of the staff was great to see. I dislike seeing servers standing around doing nothing, not the case here. My wife and I sat on the kitchen side of the restaurant where you get to see the cooking staff prepare the meals. Every meal that came out looked fantastic. The fried green tomato salad was very good. I... More

The food was absolutely amazing!!! I don't usually order fried chicken but this was hands down the best fried chicken I've ever had. My husband had the meatloaf. The portion was huge and the taste was excellent. Treat yourself and enjoy this restaurant. It won't disappoint

The Gafford is popular so calling during the day we could only get a reservation for 5 PM or 8:15 PM on a Wednesday in March. We chose the latter and were able to get seated at 8. I had an excellent, filled to the rim martini and then a superb filet mignon for an entrée with a house steak... More

If a restaurant can make the best green beans ever, then you can imagine the rest of the food! Fabulous!

Great food, service and atmosphere. the Gafford offers a fine variety of meals in a traditional environment. Not a froufrou place--just good food for a good price. Interesting but not extravagant wine list. Solid place you can count on for a great meal every time!

We had a reservation and were promptly seated. We started with The Gafford Caesar and the Fried Green Tomato salad. All the produce is locally sourced and very fresh. The fried green tomatoes were the best I've eaten! For our entrees, we had the Duck Confit Pot Pie and Southern Style Meatloaf. Wonderfully creative twist on two great comfort dishes,... More
