Really like the buffalo burger and the fries with an ice cold beer. Service was adequate. There was live music that night and it was very very loud. But I could have sat somewhere else other than right in front of the band. The waitress was fairly attentive.

It has been awhile since I have eaten at Gilbert's Lodge, but for a girlfriends birthday I took her and we both ordered the "World Famous" hoagies. So delicious. Waitstaff was professional and fun

We went to Gilbert's with my husband's family for a "Farewell to Michigan" meal at the end of our family visit. We liked the atmosphere of the place and the service was very good. My husband and his brother-in-law both ordered burgers. They weren't bad, but they weren't rare, which was how they were ordered. I know some places won't... More

It was prepared well and came out fairly fast. The food was all very good. For beverages we opted for their bloody mary. It was spicy but... More

We have been there many times - it is good but not great. We keep going because it is close and has a nice atmosphere. It is a restaurant to go to for a beer and a sandwich on a work night - not a place for a "special" dinner.

Always a good meal. Reasonable pricing and friendly service. Great burgers. It has been here for years. Even after a bad fire that came back as great as ever.

Haven't been in here in awhile and after today wondering why. The service was very good, our waitress, Samantha, was very attentive. She even came back and said there was just 10 minutes for happy hour and did we want another beer. We got lucky and it was Taco Tuesday. We got a beef taco for just a dollar. A... More

I've had the pizza and a couple different sandwiches. Not bad but not at all Great. Just Average. This restaurant like many try to do it all and end up not having one dish that is Great.
