Food was great. Our waiter kept us with everything we needed. WINGS ARE AWSOME! The burger is a real burger and you can't play around with it. My 2 year old enjoyed her chicken fingers. Everyone was so full had to take carryouts. Great spot

Great wing spot, been there forever, decent beer list. Didn't try any of the other food but this is a Buffalo Institution. Worth checking out, wings compare favorably to Duffs.

This is my go to place for wings, I drive from Canada and structure my entire visit on stopping here for wings. I really don't mind when things aren't done right but it's more how the restaurant decides on how to handle you and correct it. I asked the waitress for extra crispy wings which isn't too much to ask... More

If you are going to be in Buffalo mark this down as a place to visit! When you walk up to the outside you may think twice about going in - Go in! This place is way more than it seems. This is one of those excellent little hole in the wall joints that you have to visit. The atmosphere... More

Passing through buffalo & stayed in Allentown neighborhood. Went to Gabriel's first & enjoyed a steaming hot platter of Cajun wings. Awesome! Meaty & delicious with celery & blue cheese. I would give 5 stars but there is an odor to the place like dead fish. Limited beer selection as well but we like to sample local microbrew beers with... More

This is a fantastic place to eat. Cool setting, awesome food, great beer, excellent root beer for non-drinkers. If you lIke BBQ wings try mixing the hot and the BBQ. They were delicious. Best to establish them at the restaurant. Got them to go a second night and dew to the condensation from the heat they were not very crispy... More

Lets get to the point. Fantastic. I come up from Savannah, GA twice a year and GG is on my to do list for every trip. The wings may have started at the Anchor but GG has perfected them in every way. My opinion on a perfect wing is formed on the size, the flavor and the amount of time... More

I went to Gabriel's Gate on a Tuesday night with a group of 6. We were promptly seated and greeted by our server. Server was very nice and answered any questions we had. Service wasn't very fast, but we weren't in a hurry. This place was recommended to us as the place to go to get true "Buffalo" wings. They... More

A local contact told us that this is the place for wings. They were great, we thought we would have the Suicides ones but we settled on the Hot ones. Probably good choice! Food, drinks, service all excellent. Great atmosphere. Loved it.

The food is great. Some of the best wings in Buffalo. The sandwiches and burgers are great. But the beer needs improvement. There are no local breweries on the menu which is very disappointing considering the emerging craft beers in Buffalo. Not a single local or regional beer on the menu.

Thank dfrisi
