Breakfast was average both in price and taste. The good news is there was no wait on Sunday morning and the relaxing view of the water is worth the visit.

We ended up eating here three times in a three-day visit. That's how good it was. I had different variations of a seafood plate - shrimp, crabcakes, oysters. All were excellent. The fried foods were lightly battered and not at all greasy. The sweet potato fries were excellent. My husband had the cajun pasta. Obviously it was great since he... More

My fiance is a steak lover and Gibby's came highly recommended. The atmosphere was nice as we were seated at a table overlooking the water. The staff at Gibby's were very welcoming. Our waiter was very informative about different foods they offer, and very personable. We had no complaints about our food.

End of October and the restaurant was nearly empty inside but outside the tables were full. But they had enough staff for the small amount of customers they had. So why did it take over an hour to get a turkey club & a bowl of chowder? This on top of waiting for someone to even wait on us after... More

Visited there a number of times and have ordered something different each time. Good beer selection and a great patio overlooking the marina. Their fried shrimp and fried oysters were excellent but most other things were ordinary including their wings and burgers. They feature bands (mostly country) on a regular basis. A good place to drink and have fun.

Went for breakfast and back to watch a game the same day. Great food, good beer selection, nice staff. Outdoor seating with a view of the canal. Even a dock so you can pull up by boat. Prices were good too.

We like a water view, and Gibby's has a small deck overlooking an inland waterway facing the setting sun. We enjoyed sitting at the rail right by the water. Some customers arrive by boat and tie up at their dock. We ate there three times mid-week in the last week of September (off-season), despite a bit of chicanery, which seems... More

The food was delicious.....I had the shrimp platter and my husband had the fish tacos with sweet potato fries.....they were both very good. The service was fast and efficient. The only down side is the parking....very small lot but a pay to park lot across the street.

After a long and frustrating day traveling, we selected Gibby's Dock & Dine as it was close to our hotel and open. We were seated quickly and Tyler took our order and our refreshments came quickly. I am not certain if it was because I was stressed by the trip but my martini seemed like the biggest one I have... More
