  • My wedding was kept at The Gables and the set up by the staff was so beautiful. When I entered the reception area, I was speechless. The place was indeed 'Rustic Elegant', even my husband was speechless. The food is excellent, your taste bud come alive with each bite. Their caesar salad with anchovy, margherita flatbread, tomato crostini,Salmon is mouthwatering good. The owner Ann and manager Cathy is lovely, welcoming and comforting. Our waiter Nick was amazing! My wedding was in september and the staff and owner Ann kept everyone safe and organize during the current pandemic. This place is a hidden gem and I am glad I found it, it made my husband and I day very special. If you have your wedding or just go there to eat, you'll not be disappointed :) J&Z

  • Thanks to Kelly and Carol at the Gables, our wedding was everything we hoped for and an amazing day. The venue was beautiful, the food amazing and Carol was on top of every detail to make the day run smoothly. I didn’t have to lift a finger and felt like a Queen for the day. I just wish we could do it again! We highly recommend the Gables for any event.

  • We are getting married at the Gables in May 2019, and so far the team at the Gables has been AMAZING! They are super responsive and patient with all of our questions. They are flexible and very willing to work within your budget. We’ve been to the restaurant a couple times for lunch, and the food is DELICIOUS. We’ll add more detail after our big day in May!

  • I knew the moment we walked into The Gables that we would be getting married there. What I didn't expect was a top notch Event Planning team that would go above and beyond to make our special day the best day ever. Carol, Kayla, Kelly and Ann took the time to meet with us and answer a slew of our questions and concerns prior to our day. They were incredibly responsive via e-mail and were always a pleasure to meet with to discuss final details. The weekend of our wedding the weather threatened to rain, but the ceremony site and exterior were pristine and the fall decorations already placed were perfect for the atmosphere. Carol went above and beyond with the decorations - she understood what we wanted and brought it to life. The food and drinks and serving staff were amazing! We get told all the time how yummy dinner was. The banquet hall with twinkly lights and decorations was romantic and the perfect setting for our reception. We will be forever grateful for the love, support, protect... Read more

  • Wow where does one even begin to describe this amazing place and venue. My husband Richard and i wedded here on 09/21/18 &i could not imagine doing it any where else. The Gables is so magical,elegant and everything in between. From the Owner Ann to her wait staff and her amazing wedding coordinator Kelly they are all with you every step of the way making sure every detail is perfected to the way you envisioned it. All of our family and friends commented on the food and how delicious it was and the service how wonderful and effecient everything was. My hat goes off to this amazing place, Ann has something special here at The Gables. We cant wait to be back for our anniversary! So Ann, Kelly and the entire Gables staff Rich and I would like to say THANK YOU for making our day as special and perfect as possible you all are amszing and we are ever so greatful for you all. -The Segaline's

  • There isn’t enough room to write about how incredible The Gables was to work with. I am a meticulous planner with very particular ideas of how I wanted everything to look. The event team took the time to work with my ideas and bring them to fruition. Kelly and Carol absolutely nailed it. When Carol walked me into the finished reception room on my wedding day, I was brought to tears! Every single part of our day was perfection! In addition to how incredibly beautiful everything was, I have never heard more praise about food at a wedding!! I must have heard 50 times from my guests about how incredible their meals were! Every single detail of our day was handled with such care, it is evident that Kelly, Carol, and their teams have a true passion for what they do. If you want your day to be unique, lively, and taste amazing, this is your venue!!

  • If you're looking for a rustic style wedding, stop here. Go visit this venue, have dinner, and book it. The staff was so accommodating, we felt like we were the only wedding on their minds. They stayed late on numerous occasions to meet our scheduling needs. Whenever we asked "Can we do...?" the answer was yes or we're going to try our hardest to make it happen (and they always made it happen). They easily went above and beyond all of our expectations. On our wedding day every single staff member was working hard, but always with a smile. We could have never asked to work with a better group of people. The decorations they have on site were reasonably priced and on the day of our wedding we noticed they included even more than we had asked. We asked if we would be charged extra and they said "Of course not, we just thought we could do more for you". Not to mention they include a lot of decorations and flowers as part of their normal décor (saves on flower costs). If you'... Read more

  • The Gables made our wedding day better then what we ever imagined it could be. From the ceremony to the reception everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better team to help us through one of the most stressful times in life. We wish we could do it all over again and have it go much longer. Our guests cant stop talking about the wedding and what a great time they had. Overall one of our favorite places and best place for a wedding

  • We had our wedding at the Gables on 3/10/2018 and are so happy with our choice! From day one they were so helpful and super responsive to any questions I had etc. They made the planning process a breeze. We got so many compliments on the food (many of our guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding), the drinks, and even the friendliness of the staff. The day of was a piece of cake. I was able to drop off all of my stuff the night before and the staff took care of everything. They did an amazing job and it was beautifully done. I can't recommend the Gables enough.

  • Our 7/14/17 wedding at the Gables was perfect! Samantha and Kelly made everything so easy, and Allison made sure everything was decorated beautifully. Every request we made was accommodated. Even though it was down-pouring on the day of our wedding and we had to use a tent for the ceremony, the event went off without a hitch and was our dream wedding! Great food, great location, great service, great people.

  • The very first time we visited The Gables, we fell in love! We knew it was the perfect place for us. We had our ceremony and wedding reception there on 10/13/17. Our experience with The Gables was absolutely wonderful. First of all, the venue is gorgeous. They offer customizable food and bar packages; no need to find an outside caterer or liquor contract. There is a bridal suite on site that is available for you and your girls to get ready, and it is beautiful and cozy. You have access to the suite all day and you are served complimentary champagne, fruit and cheese as you get ready. The Gables has a welcoming, friendly staff. Of special note is our experience with Samantha. Sam went above and beyond to ensure that our day was nothing but perfect. She spent extra time with us at each in-person meeting to answer any questions we had, and she was very responsive to all our calls and emails. She even added special little touches to our rehearsal dinner table to make it that much more memo... Read more

  • My husband and I got married on 7/21/17 at The Gables. Our day was beyond perfect! Sam, Kelly, Chef Dave, and the rest of The Gables staff worked hard from day one! They were very accommodating to all our wishes, from setting up long tables, to having a sparkler send off, and everything in between. Our ceremony and cocktail hour were in the courtyard, which has breathtaking landscaping and a beautiful terrace Inside, our reception had a very rustic look and was decorated beautifully. There is also an adorable cottage where the bridal party got ready, which made it very convenient to do everything all in one place. The food was delicious, from the appetizers to the main course. Guests were also a given a fairly big portion! Many guests raved about how good the food was. In addition, Kelly and Sam made sure everything ran smoothly and happened in a timely manner. They were very helpful with creating a timeline. We are still getting compliments saying what a wonderful wedd... Read more

  • I went to a wedding at The Gables last night. Thankfully, it did not rain. The grounds are beautiful, and the outdoor gathering space is very nice. There were about 115 guests. The Gables offers accommodation for up to 140 guests. With 115, it seemed very crowded to me. There was quite a jam waiting for the bar: it was difficult to tell who was waiting in line, and which people were just clustered near the bar chatting. I can not imagine there having been any more people in the indoor “barn” section when the party moved inside for dinner and dancing. And it is not just physical space, the very real problem is noise. It was deafening. It felt as if the conversations of 115 people swirled up to the high ceiling, blended together, and descended over the crowd with a nerve jangling tinny roar. Maybe I’m just more sensitive to noise than most- but I could not hear or be heard, without shouting- to the guests seated next to me at my table. My voice got sore quickly. Eventually, I sto...

    Hi Suzanne- Thank you for your review. We appreciate your criticism. We're always looking for ways to improve our events and service. Unfortunately, when events have DJ services, the room does get quite loud. This is an issue we have struggled with and continue to brainstorm for the best solution.

  • We had a Sept 2017 wedding at the Gables.We had a special day although there were a handful of hiccups that hopefully have been fixed since. Kelly was very flexible on trying to help us have the wedding of our dreams. Due to unexpected military relocation, we tried to plan a wedding in about 6 months immediately after getting engaged. The dates were few, but they offered to host a 2nd wedding (us) after a much earlier one on a Saturday. They gave us leniency on payments since it was last minute too! Chef Dave was the absolute best, making all the food to die for. he even made custom dishes for the service too!! The atmosphere of the Gables cannot be easily replicated, and it’s inherint charm shines through. However, to be fair, there were some issues we had. We knew going into the event, there was a small turnover between weddings. We would not get the same half-day preparation as all others have, and we accepted that with grace. I think the Gables was a bit over their heads with the... Read more

  • Dont waste your $. Food is sub-par, has declined significantly since the original owners. It's apparent that the staff are treated poorly (slave-driver owners). Limited space in Courtyard. Overpriced waste. Couples to be can find much more beautiful venues elsewhere. Also overheard the chef using profanity with the staff - unprofessional. Wont be returning
