Good Food, Good Service, and Nice Interior

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... read 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.

Went to meet a coworker here as it was recommended by the Hilton nearby. As soon as I walked in there was just a really bad food smell about the place. I went to the bar to wait for my coworker. I started thinking it was just me and the smell of prime rib, but when my friend showed up... More

Oh, what happened to Gulliver's!!!! I have eaten at Gulliver's for many years. Always had excellent food, especially the "prime" rib. Had dinner here the other night with a friend. I ordered the thinly sliced "prime" rib and a dinner salad. The dinner salad when served had a lot (1/4 lb.) of very small bay shrimp and had a very... More

I had roast duck which was 1/2 of a duck cooked perfect on a bed of prunes, pears and accompanied with (german) red cabbage and very fancy potato dish. All entres come... More

We like to think of this restaurant for "Special Occassions" like Anniversary's, Birthdays etc. but once in a while we say "Oh heck! Let's just go TREAT OURSELVES!" Get the "House Salad" and enjoy mouth watering shrimp, crisp romain lettuce and their "secret dressing!" Finish off your meal with a slice of Torte Cake! UMMMM! SOOOOO GOOD!

Restaurant offered a holiday only lunch menu without notifying us when the reservation was made. Choices were very limited and quite expensive for lunch which was a disappointment as we chose this restaurant for its variety of items.
