5 Reasons to Lunch at The Gables



We’re positively delighted to be your go-to for dinner and happy hour (thank you!). But did you know we’re open and ready to serve you at lunchtime?

The same upscale-casual you expect during dinner is whipped up at lunch under Chef’s direction—of course! If that’s not motivation enough, check out these top reasons for lunching at The Gables.

1. Location, Location

Gables-lunch-2Our great, convenient location along Baltimore Pike in Chadds Ford puts us just a short drive from many tourist attractions, business parks and scenic drives. Our cozy, rustic-chic dining room is the perfect mid-day respite spot.

2. Outdoor Dining

In mild weather, dine alfresco on our rain-or-shine patio. We embrace the outdoors in spring and keep our comfy patio open as long as Mother Nature will allow.

3. Options Galore

Choose a la carte from our reasonably priced lunch menu, or go for our Pick Two for just $10. That’s a generous half-portion of some of our most popular dining options.

4. Perfect Portions

We bust out generous lunchtime portions and sides at those reasonable prices. All sandwiches are served with a choice of bistro fries or a side salad, too. You’ll leave full and happy (or maybe with a to-go container).

5. Seasonal Offerings

Gables-lunch-1Indulge in seasonal additions to our already extensive lunch menu. You might find Cajun Maryland Crab Soup brimming with root veggies, tomatoes and meaty Maryland crab. How about a double-fisted smoked brisket sandwich, juicy with house-made BBQ sauce and topped with American cheese, plus beer onions and sesame seed coleslaw? Or perhaps the whiskey ginger shrimp fettuccini kissed with garlic, ginger, chorizo, veggies and arugula? It’s worth the trip to see what’s new! Bonus: If you see something fresh-picked on your plate, it most likely came from our rooftop garden.

Lunch is served Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m.–2:30 p.m. (check out our Sunday brunch, too!). Our friendly servers are waiting—see you soon?

The Gables at Chadds Ford is nestled in the heart of the historic Brandywine Valley. Our combination of fresh seasonal cuisine, rustic yet elegant charm and enchanting outdoor dining will keep you coming back time and time again. The Gables is also the perfect venue to host your next special event, whether you are planning a wedding, rehearsal dinner, baby shower or corporate event.
