Always Good

I've been going here for the last 10+ years. It beats any chain restaurant. The portions & prices are fair. Great choice of seafood, Greek, Italian & American dishes. The breakfast choices are good too.. Especially the Sunday breakfast buffet which has a lot to choose from. It's an ideal place for any large gathering... class reunion, get together after the game, graduation, etc. OH! Don't forget to try the homemade ice cream. YUM!!

Great family run place

Eventhough I no longer live in Michigan, my family always makes a point to stop in and eat at the Gables a few time while visiting. It's not easy to find a family run restaurant anymore. The homemade cinnamon and pecan rolls at breakfast are to die for. They also make their own pies, ice cream, rice pudding and more. The menu ranges from pizzas and pasta to steaks, chops and fish and is diverse enough to satisfy the whole family. They even have some sporadic greek items like spanakopita and dolmades.

Good Food

The food was excellent, however the waitress exposed too much of her anatomy. I felt like I was in Hooters. My wife did not appreciate it either. We will return. Maybe we will be served by a waitress that is not so scantly dressed.

Long time customer

My wife and I have been eating at the Gables for 35+ years. Eat in or pizza take out. Seems to get better as time goes by. If you like from scratch cooking this is the place to go to. Pizza is the best in the area. Our grandkids agree! If you want fancy, it is not! Comfortable restaurant, great food and service, and affordable prices.


Unfriendly Owner

I've been patronizing this restaurant for 26 years. At one point, I ate there almost daily while for months while my kitchen was being renovated. However, the owner, Alex, has never exhibited the slightest bit of friendliness or recognition.Maybe because I'm 10-20 years younger than the average patron? I didn't see him today, when my husband and I had lunch. Anyway, the food is good, with a homemade quality, although it often arrives at the table lukewarm. I love the apple crisp! Breakfast, lunch and dinner, the menu is varied. Their Diet Coke is the worst and this never seems to change. Soda in cans would be a huge improvement. The changing cast of servers is invariably friendly, kind and helpful.



I have never had quite the the takeout service as I had at the gables. Other restaurants can boast about their car side service but nothings compares to some good old fashioned face to face conversation. The hostess, I believe her name was Julie, was a sheer delight. She was on the ball, prompt, genial, and had helpful recommendations as well as providing all the neccessary condiments. Basically she hit all the right notes and made a bland takeout pickup an experience. When returning home the food was still warm and well packed. Way to go gables. The employees are one of your greatest assets.


Dinner at the Coral Gables

How should I start, this resturant is spectacular! I had the pork chops with potato which the most pricy item on the menu but worth it 100%. The service is fantastice and super fast. The waiter we had was so nice and was there when we needed anything! This it is a family resturant and not a chain which is pretty cool. I will surly be back to try some of the other tasty food. If you are looking for a casual nice kind of your resturant visit the Coral Gables it's the best resturant in town!!
BY Conny River

go just for the soup and pie!!!!

for once a place that makes stuff from scratch and doesnt cost a ton, the pie is spectacular!!! so many to choose from and made daily and they actually make their soups and other dishes. menu is pretty simple but they have daily specials that are often very delicious! the small greek section on the menu is also great!



We were promptly seated. (party of 2)
The waiter came right over and said his name was Brad.
The waiter then got our water, juice and took our order.
The food came and it was burn your mouth hot.
Food was very good.
We will be back, after all breakfast is the most important meal!


A bit like home

Not fancy, but comfortable with tasty food and attentive service. Alex Vanis and his son, Stuart, have kept alive an East Lansing tradition since buying the restaurant in 1968. Their menu ranges from burgers and pizza (IMHO, the best in town) to whitefish and seared tuna (my own favorite), with a fair representation of good Greek fare. Best of all, if you like live jazz, the Gables on Saturday night is the place to be.
