Description: The Corner Stable is a family owned and operated restaurant serving our famous "fall off the bone" baby back ribs and colossal lump crab cakes, among many other things (make sure you give our seasonal menus a try!). We have over 40 different, constantly rotating craft draft lines and two full bars as well! Great bar specials every night of the week and Sunday is ALL DAY Happy Hour!

This is actually a review of 2 separate visits to this restaurant, a week apart. Both visits were very similar as far as satisfaction goes. Two couples had dinner there on two weekday evenings. This is an informal family restaurant. We were all very satisfied with the food and the service on both visits. The only negative comment is that the French fries were not very hot or freshly made on the first visit. On the second visit, we asked the server to be sure that the fries were hot, and they were definitely hot. I plan on doing that on future visits also.

Some of us ordered sandwiches and some ordered dinners. The dinners were spare ribs and the sandwiches were filled with various meats. I felt like the spare rib dinners should have included cole slaw or some other side, but they didnt. The sizes of all the portions were generous. On both occasions, some of us took home doggy bags. Everything was tasty.

On both visits we had very good service from two different servers. They were also very friendly and pleasant.

On one visit, we ordered desserts. The dessert portions were not very large, considering the 7 or 8 dollar prices. We tried to split each of the desserts between two people like we often do, but each person got a fairly small portion.

The place was clean and not very noisy. We were seated almost immediately both times. I guess that is pretty typical for a weekday. A couple can eat there for about $35-45, not including drinks, taxes, and tips.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and a detailed description of your experiences! We're very pleased that you found the food and service enjoyable, as well as our atmosphere and affordability. One concern of mine is that our rib dinner consists of a full rack of ribs and two sides. If you or one of your party ordered the full rack dinner and it didn't come with any sides then there was a mistake on our part and I'd like to apologize for it. I'd also like to apologize for the freshness of the french fries on your prior visit, we will increase our efforts to make the fries consistent and hot. Thank you again, we hope to see you soon!

This was third time I’ve been here and each time was a different experience in food quality. The first time was when they first opened. Had the fried chicken then and it was incredibly dry. The second time I had the turkey and stuffing and the stuffing was so salty it was inedible. The third time
seems to have been the charm. My daughter and I both had the salmon and it was luscious! I don’t know what the cause of the variability was, but if I come back, I’ll definitely get the salmon again and hope for the best.

Experience was ok, nothing really to complain about, and at the same time nothing to fave about either. Just a decent local place, good location.
