Nice local lunch spot with tasty sandwiches

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.

Several local residents recommended Gibby's restaurant as a moderately priced restaurant with good food. We had dinner there and the service was great and the lasagna special was very good. The serving sizes were large and the salad was fresh. The prices were very reasonable for the size and quality. I'd recommend this restaurant for dinner when in Frankfort.

We went there after a business meeting. If you are looking for something local and very informal sandwich shop, this is it. The Ruben was excellent. The place does seem to fill up quickly (we got there early). They also gave a couple of salad selections too.

It's a small eatery downtown Frankfort with quick type foods on the menu, sandwiches and such. The atmosphere is nice to sit and talk while you eat but my food wasn't anything to write home about. My daughter eats there often I was just visiting. The portions are average but nothing had any real write home about flavor. I was... More

Met some family here for lunch on the recommendation of my wife who has been coming here for years. It didn't disappoint. I had the Reuben and it was delicious. The menu here has a lot of choices and probably has something for everyone. The place was clean and counter service was fast. Will be going back again.

They have the best Hot Brown that you have ever tasted It is my favorite. The service would be better if you could be seated and be waited on during lunch instead of going to the counter and ordering. I know they do this at dinner they seat you and wait on you. I like to be waited on and... More
