We dropped in for Wednesday night prime rib and half off bottles of wine. What a great meal everything was perfect! Great atmosphere, service and food. Great wine list also. The food was prepared perfectly, a lot of attention to detail. The baked potatoes were huge so we took one home, they boxed it up with little cups of sour cream. A real class act. The prices are a little high but if want the really good stuff its worth it! We also had two breakfasts there, plenty of really great food.

Great food, good service and beautiful views and atmosphere. We have had lunch here many times and the service is wonderful and you are not rushed through your meal. Dinner has been wonderful every time we go. Good menu!

My wife and I ate here twice for dinner and once for breakfast.

The service was very good at a minimum and for one dinner it was genuinely outstanding (ask for Martha if you can!).

The dining areas have a great deal of ambiance and one room has great views of a water hazard, a green, a pasture and on to a mountain range beyond.

The breakfast and dinner menus were reasonably extensive and the meals we ordered were genuinely excellent in terms of taste and presentation. They ranged from slightly pricey to pricey, but the value was definitely there. We may not stay at the resort in the future, but we certainly will visit the restaurant whenever we're in Tubac and its vicinity. It's definitely worth going out of your way to experience!

One quirky thing, though. The resort sells memberships to people and it's our impression that they get to order from a different, less gourmet and less pricey menu. We weren't given that choice.

Stables has a lot to offer to the most discriminating patron, great atmosphere, with a "old west/Spaniard " dining room, great views of the surrounding mountains and the golf course as well as the San Pedro riparian river area...It was one of John Wayne favorite restaurant...The food is very well portioned and extremely tasty, comfort food with sophistication....we sampled the shrimp wrapped in bacon laced with homemade bbq sauce and it was just divinely executed, the walleye sautéed over creamy grits (lumpy) was tasty and perfectly cooked, my girlfriend had the arugula salad and their version is wonderful, and then she had the Scottish salmon, very high quality and delicious dish (except for the lumpy grits again), the "polenta" is found on many of their entrées and was poorly done, truly whisk those particles of corn when you cook them and you are done, that was the only really bad thing that evening. The cheesecake was really good, the key lime was a little disappointing (not home made)...Otherwise, the wine list is decent with a bit of dichotomy in the pricing, not a lot of wines (of quality) in the 50/60/70 bucks range, but rather some cheaper or pricier items, easy fix if they read my review, and i hope they do ! not everybody wants to drink sub-quality Californian supermarket wines or $5000 Phelps Cab !!! there is a balance to be found for your customers, otherwise, definitely a great dining room with wonderful staff polite, professional and very attentive. Fix the grits and expend your list and there you have it....

We sat outside by ourselves overlooking the tranquility of the golf course, the lake and the large trees. With few people on the other side of the outdoor dining/bar area we virtually had the place to ourselves as we watched the largest full moon of the year rise over the mountains. Our dinners were thoughtfully prepared, each flavorful and the portions very generous. As locals in this area there are few options we can choose from when dining out, however when we visit stables, and "the club" as we call it, we always think we are somewhere else, that in itself is a plus.
