This was my first visit to J. Gilberts and I am glad I wasn't disappointed. I ate at the bar as I was in Overland Park, Kansas on business. Had the sea scallops over lobster risotto with some asparagus and it was very good! Tried...More

We had fantastic filet mignon and scallops at this restaurant this evening. Perfectly cooked. Enjoyed the salt-encrusted baked potatoes as well. But the main highlight for me was the incredible dessert....ultra-moist chocolate mousse/ganache cake with delectable raspberry ice cream. Server said their desserts are made...More

This is actually a chain restaurant but you would never suspect it from the outstanding quality of the food. It's pricey but worth every penny. The pretzel crusted onion rings are a fun appetizer. It's a large helping so expect to share it with 2-4...More

They typically do - as with Easter - but check back closer to the date.
Do they have a kids menu? Do they allow you to share a meal?

They do have kids menu. We take children once in a while and they love it. We've split items like their huge Wedge Salad, but haven't tried to split an entree.
