We have been to Gilson's twice and have had a pleasant time on both occasions. I think the first time was better though.
The stand out item are their Brewmaster fries tossed with hand grated parmesan cheese and fresh herb mix . Worth every stinkn" calorie. We had these on our first visit along with some burgers. We also had a Dogfish 90 minute ale for the first time here. We loved the ale and went out and bought some later. Beware though their beer list changes all the time and it wasn't available on our second visit. Everything was so good on this first visit we looked forward to coming back.
The second visit wasn't quite as stellar as the first. I decided to branch out and try some other items that weren't quite as successful. Instead of beer I had a glass of what turned out to be a very mediocre rioja wine. I skipped the fries, a big mistake that I won't make again! I chose the Pappardelle Pasta Carbonara with grilled chicken, fresh peas, pancetta in a cream sauce. It wasn't bad but completely average. The husband had the Skirt Steak Barcelona with romesco sauce which comes with a side of red pepper and onion cous cous and sautéed green beans. This was excellent! I would stick with the grilled meats and pub food here. I think that is where they really excel.
Service is okay but far from refined. Our waitress couldn't place a plate or glass to save her life.
