Little gem in downtown Frankfort

A menu full of variety that will appeal to all appetites. The hot browns are delish. They offer wonderful evening meals too. Give them a try.

Party of six stopped in for lunch. Numerous choices for sandwiches, salads, pasta, hot entrees, potatoes... If you can't find something to eat, you're not hungry. Everything looked and tasted fresh.

I try to eat only half of what I am served, waistline control you know, but when my Kentucky Hot Brown was in front of me, I had to enjoy every last bite of it. Really delicious, and I have to say, worth it! We had gone on a tour of the old capital building and the wonderful volunteer guide... More

The atmosphere was cool. The sandwich was just average though. French fries were good! Overall it was just your average sandwich shop.

My husband and I have eaten here for ages and the only reason we ever hesitate to go there is because the service is so slow. My favorites include their Kentucky Hot Brown and their Reuben sandwich. My husband loves their hamburgers.

This Thursday evening was a good time for dinner at Gibby's. No lines, no waiting, fast friendly service. It's easy to see why this is a local favorite. It has that down home laid back friendly atmosphere where you always see folks you know, and appreciate. You also enjoy good fresh food at reasonable prices with a decent beer list.... More

Gibby's was recommended by the employees at Buffalo Trace and we were pleased with our lunch. The BBQ sandwiches were great! My grilled vegetables and cheese sandwich was delicious. For lunch, you go to the counter to order, go to your table and then pick up the food when your number is called.

I don't understand the other reviews here. I can understand appreciating this little restaurant for having a history dating back a long time. I can understand how one might appreciate the location, between the old Capitol building and the marvelous history Museum (see review). But we stood in line for something like 20 minutes to place our order, and then... More

Slight changes in roastst beef and cheese sandwich made for some tasty combinations...Issac Shelby used Swiss and provolone....yummy! There are several others but you should go and try the place. Also friendly fast service. Just basic table and chairs for eating in. Do not go for decor our ambiance but just good good

We asked for a local favorite restaurant and we were told Gibby's. The food we ordered was a typical American meal with French Fries, Soup, Sandwich. Nothing special. I would try it again but I would order one of their specialties.
