Gibraltar has a variety of options on its menu. The bar is great and the overall atmosphere is a definite selling point along with the service of the staff. While the food was good it wasn't outstanding and that makes me feel that it is a little overpriced for the area.

Had the loveliest time at Gibralter this weekend for my birthday. We ordered the mussels and were blown away! The broth and quality of the mussels were sooo tasty with extra bread from the waitress to sop up the juices! I ordered the sea scallops which were sweet and delicious and my husband ordered the whole fish (branzino or something... More

(Just to build on the comment from "city2country") We arrived here without further recommendation than the one from .. TripAdvisor while we drived up North. Surprisingly, OpenTable did not show a table available for reservation before 7:30 but we tried it earlier and had no regrets at all !! First of all there is free parking 100 yards from the... More

(07/09/14) Gibraltar was recommended by a friend for my wife and I to have her belated birthday dinner out. Easy to get to, it is right across the street from Franklin & Marshall College. This was the first visit for both of us. Other than the recommendation and checking the website in advance, we had no idea what our real... More

If I had not had recommendations to try this place, I wouldn't have even know it existed. The location is convenient, and ample parking, but I wasn't sure I was at the right place when I arrived. Once inside the restaurant, it was lovely. Nice atmosphere and the hostess was friendly. Service was great and food was delicious and reasonably... More

This was our second visit to Gibraltar as we don't live in the area and it was even better than our first. Regina our waitress is the best! She gave us great suggestions from what to drink (loved the Sangria!) to dessert (we chose the chocolate cake). She went the extra mile and wrote "Happy Anniversary!" on it. For an... More

Great service, great food. Try the Barcelona drink (warning one is enough). Seared yellowfin tuna, excellent. The atmosphere is "different" for a high end restaurant, sort of in a student union building. Ignore and enjoy the good food and service!

Great food, service, and atmosphere!!! The prices were compatible with the quality and portion. Wine selection was good. Staff was very professional, yet friendly. Will return again!

Perhaps because the sign is small or the fact that it is tucked away in a hidden location, we often forget about the best cuisine and service in Lancaster. It's been nearly 6 months since my husband and I have dined at Gibraltar, and we never fail to be blown away by the service and food. We had the most... More

Spent the night of our engagement here; the staff had two tables ready so I could pick the one I wanted! The food was outstanding and the staff helped make our night even more memorable.
