Gary's restaurant us a delight. Good is tast and delicious. A little pricey and not to many choices, but still worth going there because the food tastes scrumptious.

I've driven by Gary's for years but just never stopped. I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in to find table clothes and cloth napkins. We had ribs and steak done perfectly, with carrot cake for desert. Another surprise was the warm wet napkins at the end of dinner. We'll be back, probably on Thurs. for prime rib.

My wife and I have eaten here often. Owner always comes out to greet you, food is very good and consistent. Great steak, salad, soup. Always great service from the owners wife and family. Beer is cold, quiet atmosphere. Great for family or a quiet evening with a date.

This is a place that needs more customers. It usually is very empty when you go and the experience is just OK. The food is nothing to rave about and the service is OK except for the nice touch of getting a warm washcloth before dinner to "wash up". Another nice touch is the small plate of cheese/veggies as a... More

Had another great dinner, we go to Gary's every few months. Loved that Gary came out and said hello, he is such a gentleman. Try the mussels and take home the sauce if you have any left.

Gary's is a casual but delicious restaurant. Decor is nothing to write home about but food is great. Amazing baby back ribs, fantastic Cesar salad and a wonderful selection of desserts ( we had the pecan pie which was perfect). Gary came by the table to say hello and thank us for coming - a nice touch in this world... More

I went here when it first opened. Being a burger place before Gary's it's always hard to fathom how you can have a pricey place in an old little burger joint of a building. That was kind of weird. The booths were still the same just w/ table cloths instead. The waitress (maybe owners daughter) was great. She explained everything... More

The ribs fall off the bone and taste great! The staff was excellent and Gary comes around to each table. We will be returning there soon!

Stopped at Gary's on the way back from a trip to Yankees game, been looking for a place for a steak on the way home from the game. I had the NY Strip which might have been one of the best steaks I've ever had. My Dad had a half rack of ribs and the meat had nice flavor and... More
