One of my favorite prime rib restaurants. Great creamed corn. Spinach ok. Ask for the hot horseradish as their creamed one is too mild and tasteless.scones not as good as at Five Crowns. Service very good.

Our family went to Gulliver's for Father's day. We were seated in Rochelle's section. Sadly, I can't even remember the food because the service was shockingly bad. Our server, Rochelle, was seemingly polite to us but as soon as she would walk way she would be shouting "hey buddy" to other servers which was out of place and very disruptive... More

We came for a quick lunch & had the steak salad. Service was good. Salad was good. A bit pricey for 2 salads & 2 waters so the value isn't good enough to make it 5 star, but I'd be in to try something else.

Quantity and quality are reasonable expectations with the star of the show, prime rib starting at $22 lunch and $32 dinner. Indeed, quantity is ample for the star and its sidekicks at dinner, creamed corn & Yorkshire pudding. Quality though, remains more of a crapshoot, with flavor and tenderness of the star varying from seductive to downright boring. IMHO sometimes... More

Gullivers is back at its peak! The food has always been excellent, but for a while the service was awful. New owners took over and it is once again outstanding! The old English setting is cozy, the prime rib can't be beat and the service is fast and friendly. We have loved this place for 40 years.

Great prime rib restaurant with old world atmosphere. Loved the cream corn and authentic Yorkshire pudding. We have been going to Gullivers for over 40 years, never disappointing. We always order the prime rib. Excellent!

Gulliver's specialty is prime rib ... and at least three cuts (sizes) are available. The prime rib was plentiful, and cooked just right. It was accompanied by creamed corn and a green veggie (spinach?) The wait staff was friendly, and we were seated quickly. The ambiance is a step above a Carrows / Dennys, closer to a casual steak house.

It had been over 21 years since I had eaten at Gullivers so thought I'd try it out. I admit I do love the dark, old world atmosphere of the restaurant. It's a change for sure. I ordered the duck and my husband ordered the daily special, escolar. Yes, I really wanted to try out the prime rib, but I... More

This is a British themed restaurant, but safdly doesn't measure up to even pub style/quality. Visited the restaurant with a family group and tried their "famous" Prime Rib, came with a soggy 1/2 Yorkshire pudding that could never have been served in England and a large, fairly tender to tasteless hunk of prime rib. Another of our party had the... More
