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

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.

Busy Saturday night with family. Seated right away. Friendly, attentive staff. Great pizza and sandwiches. A good place to watch the game. We loved the remodeling of the restaurant. Nicely done.

I don't normally have burgers at a bar, but this place is the best place to have them hands down....been going to this place for many years too and the service is still great. Need to get over here to try those burgers to add your review! Love this place

Had not been to Gilberts Lodge in several years. But, this was a treat with the family. Food was great and a lot of it. Service was just right on the ball and the overall décor was lovely. We are sure to come back!

Thank Robert S
