J Gilberts is one of my husband's favorite restaurants and we were so excited to go here for his birthday. We had early reservations on a Friday evening. When we arrived, we were immediately seated. However, I don't think a server was assigned to our table. After about 20 minutes, someone saw that we needed attention and came over to... More

I can't say enough good things about J. Gilbert's. We frequently dine there but we recently had a party of 11 and they did an outstanding job. The food is always top notch (all food for the 11 of us came out at the same time and it was all hot). At the same time, though an expensive fine dining... More

We had dinner at J Gilbert's on a Sunday evening. We did not have reservations, but, were able to be seated in the bar. We liked the decor. The brick and wood gave the restaurant a rustic, elegant appearance. The menu is very nice with options for everyone. My wife chose the 6 ounce filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly... More

We are big Ruth's Chris Steakhouse fans, but the closest ones to us are 2 hours away. We have family near this area, and spent the night, hoping to dine at Ruth's. Were shocked to see it had closed. This gave us the perfect opportunity to try J. Gilbert's. First impression was good. Looks really cool on the inside....kinda dark... More

Great time with friends, trying to watch some of the late games. -food is good. I had the 1/2 ckn and it was very good. The dessert was also quite good. - the service was so inconsistent . Table wasn't cleared and I had to move our empty wine glasses, carafes, and plates to the empty table next to us... More

Great steak house. Good service. Had a delicious meal. I stayed at a nearby hotel. They recommended the restaurant and gave me a discount coupon to use.

The food (wedge and Scallop risotto) was very good but not great. However that was offset by the excellent service and attention to detail. It also pretty reasonably priced...for a steak house.

Absolutely amazing service! Our servers were exceptional. The dining area was gorgeous. The bathrooms were clean and very upscale even offering mouthwash. The seafood was very fresh, the bread was fabulous and the best crab bisque and crab cakes I have ever had. I had the coconut cake which was recommended by the hotel staff was phenomenal. The entire meal... More

We've been coming here for 20 years. This was the best meal we've ever had here! The prix fixe menu is a great deal! I had the crab cake and asked for tartar sauce. The chef had to make some special. It was the best I've ever had and I'm from Florida! The steaks are great as well and the... More
