Great Food

Meet friends here for dinner. Everyone ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their dinner. Food is excellent, waitstaff friendly, atmosphere very nice (maybe a little load). All in all a great experience. Would have rated it higher but we were served the wrong food, and before we knew it... read more

There is family style seating aswell as bar area where you have access to several TVs and Keno. We were there on Thanksgiving day and the turkey dinners looked scrumptious. We opted for appetizers and watched the football game. Barbara waited on us and was a hoot. Based on this experience, I suggested a return visit to try more offerings... More

Enjoyed the food and the set up. Started going every other week around 9 pm saturdays. Being that it is more a restaurant than a bar people should be able to converse while eating. Even if you sit in the patio area the bands are so loud you have to shout at the person next to you to communicate. Unfortunately... More

I really liked the ambiance of the new Gilbert's (guess it is not that new anymore but). Lot's of TV's for viewing sports. Fireplaces. Spot on service. Big menu. Outdoor fire pits. Bustling place. We ordered the waffle fries with bacon, cheese & scallions as an appetizer. DELICIOUS. Thought we would be in for a treat, all 4 of us... More

I like the service and the ambience and my friends love this place so I'm not sure if they were having an off day or if this was normal but my food was rather terrible. I ordered the clam chowder which was okay in that it wasn't gritty but other than that, nothing remarkable. The shepherd's pie, on the other... More

Good food & service. A landmark in the Shores that was missed while it closed for renovations & then a fire but it is back in full swing. Sports on the screens that dont interfere with great talk at the tables,a large fireplace that keeps you cozy. There is a side room that can be used for private groups. Come... More
