Excellent Prime Rib and service. Nice English decor with a very efficient staff. Creamed Corn is really special.

Meateaters will be in hog heaven. I ordered the BROBDINGNAGIAN. It was very good. My wife doesn't eat red meat. She ordered the chicken, sucks. We went there only because we had a Groupon. We haven't been back.

W went here with friends for New Year's Eve and the experience was one of the worst I have had in a dining experience.The restaurant was decorated nicely for the holidays but the entire place is dated and shabby and the service and food was bad. The food is slopped on your plate as if you are in a cafeteria... More

For many years I have been dining at Gullivers and seen the gradual decline in service and food quality. I dined at Gullivers New Years Eve with my husband and another couple. The restaurant was beautifully decorated and very festive but the food is more on par with Sizzlers. My prime rib was warm and tough and flavorless. My husband... More

Our dinner and experience was excellent! Fast friendly service. Prime rib dinner was delicious as was the house salad and the mushroom soup. Highly recommend this place.

We went there Xmas Eve as they had been so good in the past. . . well those days are over. With very poor service(not trained with even the basic of service), so so tasking food this time, it seem all they were after was to turn the tables and get more people in. For the price of the food,... More

The menu offerings are basically unchanged. All items fill the comfort food craving. Prime rib as you like it. Yorkshire pudding, creamed corn, creamed spinach, horseradish. Great bar scene and wine list. Friendly efficient serving wenches in authentic dress. Family owned and cared for. Not a place to visit weekly, but worth a meal a few times a year.

I went to Gulliver's to celebrate my 65th birthday. I wanted a good cut of prime rib for my bd. It started out great. Nice Christmas decor, good bread, and the salad was excellent. Then came the main course. The side dishes were all very good. As for the prime rib, it was nothing but grizzle. I have never had... More

We decided to try this place due to reviews written. Three of the four of us had poor dishes. The BBQ combination plate with chicken and ribs tasted like it was cooked 2 days ago and warmed up. Yuck! The seafood linguini was over salted to the point of unedible. The only good dish was the salmon, Service was slow... More
