We had the early bird special---great value and well prepared. The beef and chicken entrees were both superb. Wine included! The dessert was a bonus and service fine.

We were a party of six visiting Grey Gables. The experience started off great. Our server was enthusiastic and informative. Sweet scones and bread promised a wonderful meal. Unfortunately, it was down hill from that point. For the salad course our group choose Caprese, Caesar and a beet salad. The Caprese was a poor representation of what it should have... More

My husband and I chose this restaurant for our wedding dinner. I had the filet mignon and my husband had the prime rib. Both meals were the best we have ever had. The restaurant is set in an old victorian house, which was nicely decorated. The staff was top notch. We would highly recommend The Grey Gabels Inn.

One cannot grasp what lies beyond the front door of this spacious and inviting bar and restaurant. Service is excellent. The menu and wine list are extensive. The white fish is as fresh as any in the state. A trip to the bar is a must. The bartender is customer-focused and adept at pouring a drink to your liking. Here... More

Tuesday night is Burger & a Beer in the Bistro section for $8. However, they failed to tell you that it is only for "light beer" (ughhh). So I didn't want the light beer and was given $1 off a regular beer (which came to $6), which means I ended up paying twice as much as I planned. Be careful.

Enjoy a wonderful dining experience in a beautiful turn of the century house. The venue is divided into a number of small rooms offering an intimate and private setting. The menu is pleasing in variety. We had a wonderful smoked Whitefish appetizer. The prime rib was so tender it could be cut with a dinner knife and came in 3... More

We decided to return for the "early bird" prix fixe dinner since it was so good a couple of years ago. If anything, it was better this time. We had the stuffed chicken breast and the beef bourguignon and both were outstanding. The price for two dinners, including salad and sundae, plus a bottle of house wine was the same... More

We went to the Grey Gables a lot 15-20 years ago. It really started slipping about 8 years ago, and we just simply refused to eat there any more. Recently, we started to hear that things had improved, so my husband really wanted to try it, and I went along, albeit reluctantly. The interior has been freshened up, which was... More

Visited here after traveling all day. We stopped in and sat in the bar and had a beer and a burger. The bar menu was a great option for a late night meal. Cant wait to go back and try the full menu. See you soon!

Always a great meal. Their whitefish is spectacular. Don't miss the mini scones in the bread basket. You can't have just one!
