You won't believe the food at the Gift Horse. It is absolutely great. Crawfish bisque and fried chicken done right. Fried biscuits that are down home and salads that cover one entire serving table. It is good, I tell you and you will enjoy it too. Servers are friendly and helpful and the ambience of the old place can be felt. After your<br /> delicious meal, visit their two antique shops - one on the corner and one down the street. You'll need to walk off your dinner.

Used to be good, but, last time I ate there it was very disappointing. Food did not taste good at all.

Ate there several years ago and it was just okay. Thought I would give it another try. I wont make that mistake a third time. The food was horrible and the staff seemed too involved talking to other servers to pickup plates or get a refill. The goofy girl at the register did not seem to care when I mentioned my displeasure with the meal. She actually laughed.

Very disappointing...came to the <br /> gift Horse every summer for years on our way to <br /> gulf shores. It's been several years and this time we looked forward to a great meal. Well, that didn't happen. The salad bar was just ok. <br /> the food wasn't hot, fried rolls were hard, soup was cold, the famous cheese and apples were just apples and not enough cheese to taste, service was really bad, no refills on iced tea. I am so disappointed and will never return.<br />

Host unfriendly...acted as though we were "bothering him". Then the high chair was broken and the man could not find another tray. No refills offered on our tea. Food tasted great.

DROVE UP FRPM GULF SHORES WITH FAMILY. HUNGRY FOR HOME STYLE FOOD. SOMEONE AT CHURCH RECOMMENDED GIFT HORSE SINCE THEY HAVE A TWO FOR ONE ON SUNDAY IF YUOUR BRING YOUR CHURCH BULLETIN WITH YOU. WE WERE ALL SATISFIED WITH OUR MEAL. HUSBAND LOVED THE FRIED CHICKEN. I LOVED THE BREAD PUDDING. DAUGHTER LOVED SHRIMP SALAD. ALL LOVED THE FRIED BISCUITS. IT WAS REASONABLE AND FULL OF AMBIANCE.

Went to a Christmas Brunch at this restaurant and what an array of selections. Couldn't believe it. The "apple/cheese" is really old south. Everything was good, good, good!!! Lovely old restored building. Homey. Try it, you'll like it.

My friends and I had a picnic! Such good food and what a variety. Good coffee. Delicious ice tea. Apple cheese is delicious. Everyone loved it. We will go back!

The quality of service and the variety of selections has drastically gone down in the last year. This restaurant used to be the star of Foley eateries but for some reason they have decided to live on their reputation rather than maintaining it. Very disappointing!

The first few times we went to "The Gift Horse" we were thrilled, and just knew we had found a jewel. We took friends there for the food, and to show them the building which has a long and storied history. The price was a welcome change from the high price restaurants have started to charge. <br /> <br /> Over the last two, or three years, something regretable has happened. The price suddenly went up, and at the same time, the quality of the food drooped way down. They have developed a habit of not replacing things on the buffet if the time is getting late for the lunch crowd, mainly the crawfish chowder like dish. Things have gotten so bad that we have finally quit stopping there at all. <br /> <br /> Are you listening, Gift Horse?<br />
