“nice location but service/prices/band were bad”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

The tiki bar is in a great location and pleasant. But the staff were surly, the band was wayyyy to loud for small venue, and the prices were somewhat high for a small place. The food was greasy but typical bar fare. Go for the atmosphere but the rest is pretty average all round.

“Great Fish Sandwich and Entertainment”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Gilbert's has been around for a long time and we have never had a bad experience here. Very reliable. We went on a Saturday night as I had a craving for their grilled fish sandwich which is delicious. We upgraded to Sweet Potato fries which was an additional $2.00 but worth it. Service was a bit spotty but in fairness, the place was packed. We also had a side salad which is ok but overloaded with raw onion, peperoncini's and olives, none of which we liked so by the time we'd removed that we were basically left with lettuce, tomatoes and cukes! Some raw carrots would have been nice. My husband had a burger which was good. The restaurant always has good nightlife, this night we had a rock band called Push who were pretty good plus a Rock n Roll Magician who was terrific! On top of a nice breeze from the water, a good atmosphere and great entertainment, Gilbert's is a fun place to hang out. Recommended!

“Hospitality with a capital "H"- Change is good”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Being new "locals" we have made Gilbert's our go-to place for the past 7 years, but now they have made it even better (although I would like to have the shoestring fries back). "Our" bartender Billy made the experience even better- before the extension we would be served hastily (but still served) but with Billy behind the bar our experience and more personable- remembered us and what we drank the last time. He was rocking out to the band, having a good time working..and making sure we were happy. The new bathrooms are a PLUS- almost spa like compared to what they were - with a bathroom attendant! Whatever business plan they have now- it is working. The burgers are still delicious and I cannot wait for my next Sunday afternoon there. Thanks to whoever noticed the need and room for improvement this past year- you did good- professional bartenders are hard to come by - keep this guy- he made it happen for us and is making it happen for you.

“Great tiki bar and water access”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Inexpensive beer/drinks, entertainment every night with no cover charge and an overall fun and relaxing atmosphere. Food was tasty and the waterfront location is perfect if you're on a boat.

“A must stop for boaters ....”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We love stopping at this resort/marina/tiki bar/ boat rental/ and beach. Its off the path, decorated with an island theme, has awesome bands and very cold beer ... plus very friendly happy to chat staff. We will continue coming here everytime we are anywhere near. We recommend other people traveling by boat to use the nearby anchorage and dinghy to shore, you can use the beach or go around back to a dinghy dock :)
