It’s a modern looking, spacious dinner located in the Mount Pleasant area. Food was interesting and creative, although it may not be for everyone (eg. Duck breast with kimchi on a pancake). It was a bit too salty for my liking though. My server was a super cheerful lady. I really like their weekend brunch. You get your main dish, a baked treat, a biscotti, tea (or coffee), AND another drink for only $25.

The choice of "Mains" is limited, likely due to Covid19, though. Ice cream is available by itself (not many places offer that!).

Pulled pork sandwich on a bun comes with lots of fries.

Staff are very polite!

The Prohibition Brunch is definitely worth the money - $25 for Coffee/tea + Pastry + Main + Sweet Treat + alcoholic/non-alcoholic drink. But, make a reservation ahead of time so you won't be turned away

The specials were offered and then we were told they weren’t available! My husband and daughter enjoyed their dishes, but mine was just alright.

Fable Diner
Responded on November 15, 2020

Hi, Jennifer! Thanks for your feedback. I'm glad the rest of your family enjoyed our house-made dishes. It's something we've worked hard on. And I’m sorry the server didn't get the information that we had just sold out of the features until after they were described to your group. It does happen sometimes - especially when it is busy that other folks who have had housemade features described to them choose them first and they become sold out.

We felt safe, as well as well-fed and well looked after. Music too loud, made conversation difficult -- calling it "energetic" in the ranking choices is far too kind. Apart from that detail, a great choice. Fable seems to have adapted well to difficult circumstances and deserves to continue to prosper.

Fable Diner
Responded on October 31, 2020

Thanks for your visit. It’s great to hear you appreciated our safety measures and house-made meals. I really value your opinion and be assured concerns about music are noted and have been passed on to the whole management team to be more aware of this. Please do say something on a return if this impression is given. You likely may not be the only one to feel this way, and the team should be made aware. Hope to see you again!

The upbeat ambiance, the fun music, the value, the servers are intuitive, personable, friendly, attentive and quick.

Was disappointed that the turkey dinner was a round roast. I am not of fan of the round turkey roasts and would not have booked our dinner if I had known that in advance. Everything but the Turkey was delicious. Our server seemed overwhelmed. Unfortunately I don’t think we’ll be back for another turkey dinner!

Great food, but small portions. Boozy milkshake and pumpkin pie were delicious!

Fable Diner
Responded on October 20, 2020

Thanks for trying us out and also for the feedback. Since our sourcing is quality and local and everything is housemade, it is admittedly more expensive to produce. We’ve found it comes across in superior taste. It’s not a deciding factor for some, so we will always have to weigh this out! Hope we get to see you here again.

The beef brisket was not brisket it was cubed meat that tasted like plastic. I've never seen anything like it. The potatoes were overdone. I ate the eggs, the kale and the avocado. Then I found a long curly blond hair in my food (my hair is black.) The servers were kind enough to take it off the bill but I will never go back.

It feels safe to eat at Fable during Covid 19. They are very careful and follow all the safety protocols. The food is really good - well prepared and they have a nice menu. I had the Duck/Kimchi pancake - unusual and very tasty! My husband had a fully loaded burger and it's one of the best. Their french fries are exceptionally good also.
