A St. Clair Shores institution!

Rising like a phoenix, Gilberts has survived two fires and looks better than ever. The St. Clair Shores institution has reincarnated with more seating, a cozy fireplace inside, and additional fireplaces outside to add to the Northern lodge feel of the place.

I recently went here for a going party thrown by friends which was held in one of the side rooms off of the main restaurant/lodge. The accommodations were wonderful, pizza and salad were very delicious. I cannot comment as to the price of the food, as the hostess of the party graciously picked up the tab. There was a cash...

Good food. I like the buffalo burger option. I loved their seasoned fries. Nothing very spectacular though, food wise.

The food is very good for the area, and the new upgraded interior is a major welcome. Prices are good and with the new interior, it is more patron friendly with room to move between the tables. Better flow throughout the restaurant.

Wife and I were in, she had the Coconut Shrimp and I had the Shepard's Pie (my favorite) No complaints on the food or service, all went well. They were busy but I thought our waitress was... More

First time we've been in town since the remodel. Food was good, atmosphere was great and service was superb. Can't wait to go back again!

Since being remodeled, the Lodge is very cozy and a great place for families. There is something on the menu for everyone. The service was great. I ordered a pizza and it was great.

I was back for a work related meeting and yes it looks much nicer after all the redecorating, but sorry to say the food is still very disappointing. I got the fish tacos which for some weird reason, had been liberally doused with bbq sauce! It was horrible! All I tasted was sweet bbq. Very bad. The menu said it... More
