What Our Customers Are Saying About Us
"One of the best restaurants in the state. Fresh friendly & Absolutely Alabama."
"The food was so damn delicious! It was my first time eating in a restaurant that is allowed and not being sneaky.
My first time having wine outside of my house. I couldn’t help but cherish this moment and stayed a little longer. Moments like these matter to the travelers of the world that sometimes can’t get bc not around their loved ones all the time. I ordered the pecan encrusted grouper along with a bleu cheese beet salad and a rice blended with veggies. Everything was delicious and fresh and made to order. Originally I got my order for take out only to learn that I could enjoy my meal inside. Which saved me from driving an hour to my hotel to be able to enjoy a meal not in my car another day. Enjoyed every morsel of that bread pudding. I can’t believe how much I enjoy that when I rarely eat bread. Anyway come here to eat, support your local restaurants and their employees. And make sure you TIP!! If you have money to eat out, tip those people that are making your food, just a PSA"
"We are just passing through.... Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor.... We were seated at the Chef's Bar.... Great service.... Beet salad, crabcakes, trout with quinoa were all yummy delicious! Fun show watching the guys cook! What a well oiled machine! Full bar.... Clean! A rare find"
"First time visiting and will definitely be back! Honestly haven't been here because of the location but can't say enough about how surprised I was! Food was great; steak cooked perfectly as ordered, asparagus was perfect and all around great experience! Definitely the best dining experience in Anniston/Oxford area! Recommend to all!"
"Garfrericks is not the standard meat, salad & a potato restaurant. They build their menu to highlight the freshest locally grown produce and fresh fish as well as many specialty dishes. If your palate is looking for something to enjoy as opposed to just “gut stuffing”, this is your place. It is a hidden gem, but worth the trip. They have a small but well stocked bar. A great place for date night, and peaceful enough for good conversation to complement a good meal."
"Let's be honest, there are not a lot of fine dining places in this part of the country. Garfrerick's is one of the exceptions. I had the shrimp and grits and it was wonderful. I sat at the kitchen area bar so I could watch the food being made. The kitchen was clean and well run. Having been all over the world dining I can confidently say this was as fine a dining experience as I have had anywhere else."
"A very quaint and unexpected restaurant. The menu hosted local and fresh ingredients. The serving ware was handmade by a local art class (I think). The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating to some of our older guests who chatted for a bit. We were there till after hours and got to check out the oven and kitchen area a bit. Very impressed!"
"This is a quality farm to table restaurant tucked into a quiet and unsuspecting space. It quite amazing what they have done with their space. The food was very good and as fresh as home made, from scratch. Please take time to stop by this unique restaurant."
“They came up with a menu and were so flexible when we changed parts of it. Their menu was kept at our requested price point. The food was delicious!”
“We could not have asked for a better experience! The response from our guests on the quality of the meal and the attention provided by the staff was overwhelming.”
“They wanted us to truly enjoy the food and were willing to accommodate us in any way possible.”
"More than one guest told me “it was the best wedding food ever”.
