I'm giving up on Gabe's. The food has become subpar and inconsistent (as has the service). I've been to lunch with different friends three times in the past month. Each time I ordered something different, although it was something I've had there previously, and each meal was a disappointment. The tomato was left off the BLT and the bacon was... More

Super little restaurant in downtown Villa Rica. All the dishes here are very good. I recommend the seafood dishes but the steaks here are awfully good as well. Ask for Chris as your server, he is very, very good. They have a small bar here as well. This place is always crowded for lunch and dinner so get there early... More

Went to a monthly dinner. On a Monday evening when they are usually closed. Pairing wines with the food. It was simply delicious. Yummy scallops following a mango gazpacho with lump crab. The main course a rack of lamb. Wow. It was awesome.

Very nice cozy restaurant with great service and very good food. I had fried rice and sausage balls, followed by jambalaya that was spot on. Just be advised, it is a lot of jambalaya.

I've been to both of Gabe's restaurants. Service was great. The goat cheese salad was the highlight. The cheese was creamy, fresh, and not "goaty". Perfectly paired with candied pecans and champagne vinagrette, I'm hungry just thinking about it. We then ate the crab cakes. They were average crab cakes on a bed of corn. I was told the corn...

They were able to accommodate a table of 6 on a Friday night even though they were busy. The food was excellent. All six entrees were fabulous. Creme brûlée...you are welcome.

Have been visiting the area for the last week-this is by far the best place to eat! Food excellent. Tasty,well presented and good sized portions. Lovely friendly staff. Highly recommend eating here-wish we had visited earlier in our trip so we could do a return visit to try the desserts.

Shrimp bisque was ok. I didn't like the texture. Goat cheese salad was awesome and my mom had a roast beef po boy that was great also. Be prepared if you get the roast beef po boy, it's messy, but if you know your po boys that's the only way to eat them.

I lived in villa rica for about 8yrs.. We finally got to go to Gabes and man the good was good. I got some kinda seafood pasta. Forget the name but it was the best. The portions were very big and I had to take some home. It was a little expensive for me but it was worth it.

Party of seven on a busy night, but seated in just 20 min. Great service, apps out quickly, polite, informative waitperson. All dishes excellent. Big, BIG portions. 7 yr old had kids menu chicken finger, again a very generous serving. Pasta Bouillabaisse, Shrimp and Grits, salads, Crab Cakes all A+! Not cheap, but definitely worth the money!

Thank Thomas C
