We went to Gilbert and Blakes to celebrate my husbands birthday. Service was good, a lot of food, which counterbalances the high prices. We had plenty leftover from both our entrees for lunch the next day as well. Fish and steak were both very good.

I wanted to provide dinner for a number of guests after an even larger celebration of the birthdays of my horse and me. Gilbert & Blake's was the perfect venue. They provided their side 'den' for about 20 of us. To make it easier for the restaurant, I met with them in advance (along with having an outstanding lunch of... More

We sat at the bar and ate dinner. It was a quiet night, bartendar was friendly and attentive. I got the fish and chips and it was very good.

We had a party of 4, ordered clam chowder to warm up. It was served cold and the potatoes were not cooked through. Then we waited over 60 minutes for the entrees to be served. The main entrees were served cold, and ribs burnt, while the calamari was cold and greasy by the time it got to the table. The... More

Great cocktails from a fun, neighborhood bar. The food is expensive and not worth the cost. Never had a meal worth going out for at G&Bs.

We had a party of 10 and had a nice time there. Service was exceptional and food was good. I had prime rib and everyone seem to enjoy what they ordered. Overall nice family and group dinning experience; price was fair for a place such as this. Would recommend it to people visiting E Lansing. People were generally very nice.

So, I was looking for someplace to have dinner not on a budget but not crazy expensive either. Came across this suggestion on Trip Advisor. Nice decor, looks new but not just opened new. The wine list was fare as far as the red wine by the glass, not terrible, not fantastic. The menu was better than good. Nice balance... More

Repeat visit from year ago, still awesome. Had a great cocktail, super crab cakes appetizer, wife had the petite surf & turf, I had the king crab legs. The crab legs were are very large and cooked perfectly. Everything was superb! Topped it off with a shared piece of carrot cake and coffee. The carrot cake is huge, moist, and... More
