It may not look like much from the outside other than some beautiful hanging baskets of flowers but it has great food. I just wanted a plain cheese and ham sandwich without any trimmings, sauces or salads and that is exactly what I got and served in the best tasting bread roll I have tasted in ages. My partner had...

Our meal at Red Gables Mesquite Grill last Thursday, June 2nd, may have been the best dinner experience I have ever had. Some meals are memorable and considered excellent for the food. Others are remembered for the great service. Still others are reckoned as superior due to a special event that is being commemorated. Once in a blue moon you... More

Wonderful little place. We were greeted at the door and escorted into a nice warm, cozy atmosphere. Nice, quiet, intimate place. You would not guess from the outside that it so nice inside. Reading the history of the place was pretty cool and the upscale steak was delicious! We will return. .....

I've enjoyed two delightful meals at The Red Gables in the last four days. My wife surprised me with a special Valentine's celebration dinner this past Saturday night. I was impressed by the delicious steak and personalized service. The Chef came out to talk with us and took the time to explain a great deal about the food and preparation.... More

Upon arriving for a Valentines date, we were warmly greeted and immediately seated (we did have reservations). Our service was prompt and our meals were delicious. There was a minor mixup as to how my wife's filet was prepared, but our server quickly corrected the problem and the restaurant went above and beyond to make up for the very slight... More

We have eaten three times at Red Gables. On each occasion the food has been consistently excellent. I'm so pleased we have such an outstanding restaurant so close to where we live. On our last visit we had calamari and a crab cake for an appetizer. Both were totally delicious. The salads and bread are made the way they should... More
