Food quality equal to major chain restaurants at 4 times the price. Waiter walked by & asked if everything was ok, but never refilled my water glass. He did, however, notice my empty wine glass & made certain I knew he'd bring me another. Prior to this meal, I don't ever recall a couple of burgers setting me back &100.... More

A great place to go by boat on beautiful Lake Oconee.. A very "happening" place. However, their prices continue to go up and border on being outrageous. Food is tasty...wine is $$$.. Portions generous. Servers and bartenders are most friendly and very attentive.

Great bar and restaurant over looking Lake Oconee. Casual but classy. We shared Lobster Grilled cheese and a huge sales- huge portions for a lunch. Great view.

Gaby's by the Lake has a very nice atmosphere and a decent menu. I wouldn't call it fine dining but it is above what you usually find at a hotel. It is a great place to unwind at the end of the day and enjoy the mild evening air of many a Georgia evening.

The menu is very limited but the beautiful setting and the excellent service made up for the lack of choices. The evening was pleasant, so we ate outside with the lake as our background. Our waitress, Amanda, was personable and prompt with our food, despite having a table full of at least 10 ( surprisingly well-behaved) kids adjacent to us.... More

Not a typical Ritz Carlton restaurant. Service is okay and the food is okay. Nothing spectacular and not up to the typical Ritz Carlton standards. Ate lunch at Gaby's 2 x while I was at the resort and had the same experience both times.

Lots of TV's in the bar area. Restaurant is mostly outside, but you can be shielded from the elements. Great place to watch the sunset.

We stopped here for appetizers. Unfortunately it was raining, but we still had a good view of the lake. Gaby's has heaters which helped keep off the chill from the rain. We shared orders of the pork nachos and a margarita pizza. Both items were very good. I would return to Gaby's.

I went with 2 girlfriends. It was a beautiful night and the atmosphere was lovely. Between the 3 of us, we ordered the lobster grilled cheese, fish tacos and a cheeseburger. Absolutely nothing special about any entrees and the sides were cold. If I order an $18 cheeseburger, I want it to be good! However, if you want a place... More

My son and I had a nice dinner on patio overlooking the water. Great service and food was good. My son had the lobster grilled cheese. He was a little disappointed as the lobster was mixed with mayo. Which we should have asked. My dinner was very good. Overall nice experience.
