Generous portions in an Olde English Pub atmosphere

This place is a meat-eaters delight. The atmosphere is dark and harkens back to an old English pub of Charles Dickens' time. It is cozy and warm but not terribly noisy. The steaks are huge and the sides are great: creamed corn, sourdough bread, and cabbage. Portions generous and the wait staff is... read more

Karen helped me to arrange our small group dinner for about 15 people. Excellent food and service. Appetizers at the bar before dinner were very good. The Prime Rib was superb. Tender and juicy and the portions were generous. The service was also very good. Karen was a pleasure to work with.

I was waiting on a flight, arriving at the airport some 8 hours before my flight was to leave, traveling on business whe I visited Gulliver's. It started out being a convenient place as the reason I went as it is merely a football field or so away ffrom the terminal. That quickly changed. I was proud to eat here.... More

I went to Gulliver's because it said "Prime Rib" and I love a good prime rib. If there was a way to give this a negative rating, I would. To start, because I was alone, I was given the option of sitting in the bar, or the main restaurant. If I had known that sitting in the bar meant I... More

This place is a must visit! My favorite is the Prime Rib with Yorkshire Pudding, Creamed Corn and Spinach! Always good and staff take ownership and always exceed expectations!

An excellent restaurant to celebrate my oldest grandson's birthday. Two in our party had the filet mignon for $32.95, which they said was excellent. It came with twice baked potato and green beans. Six had the Prime Rib also for $32.95. All thought the prime rib was excellent, some ordered it medium rare, others medium. Very tender and tasty. It... More

I went to this restuarant with out high hopes, but I was please with what I had ordered. I got the Filet Mignon for $15 and it's came out like I spend $50 on it. I was very please with the waitress and the chef's for being flexible with my brother's dairy allergies. The food was good, the service was... More

Very popular place with a quaint English style decor. Outstanding Caesar salad made by our waiter, Shane, with the right ingredients including ample olive oil and garlic. Escargot was also wonderful and piping hot. Prime rib was done just right with excellent sauce. Also, they know how to make a real martini. Highly recommended.

Stopped by for a drink and appetizers on my way to drop someone off at airport. We were early and the waiter was great. Explained the appetizer menu during Happy Hour and the free appetizers as well. There was no need to order dinner...those BBQ Rib Ends were tender and to my liking. And that Raspberry Lemon Drop was so... More

This place has not changed. The menu is the same with the exception of the prices in over 20 years. The interior was the same, the help staff still wore same style of 'costumes'. The food was very good and still had the creamed corn.
