Excellent food, service and atmosphere. We had 30 people attend for a work holiday gathering. Compliments all around. Everything from the drinks to dinner and dessert was spot on. Shout out to Karl for putting it together and our wait staff Jackson and Monica. They were professional and accomidating. Definitely recommend.

First time here. Went for a quick dinner with colleagues. Didn't have appetizers or dessert, but ordered the bone chop and it was ok. Nothing bad, but cooked ok. Sides were carrots and risotto. Carrots I didn't care for (and not much given), but the mushroom risotto, was very good. And service was excellent.

Great for a special occasion where you want great service and good food. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The stakes were very tender and cooked as we ordered. I do like they have a set price for three courses. A little bit over priced for what you get but I prefer the portion sizes to be what... More

Our family went for Christmas Eve Dinner and we were seated promptly, even though the restaurant was packed. Our food was excellent as always. The steaks are especially good here but so are the scallops, even though your aren't on the coast.

This wasn't my first time at J Gilbert's but it was my best. Went there recently to celebrate my birthday with my girlfriend. She had never been, and I hadn't been in a long time. Started out with the Tuna tartar which was excellent, moved to salads (she had the wedge and could not stop talking about the dressing that... More

We enjoy going here ordering the cheese & meat board, oysters & shelfesh patter. Great place to grab a beer with friends and have appetizers or stay for dinner. Not a big steak fan, and the steaks can be a little high in price, but the salmon and tuna are wonderful.

J Gilberts is one of my husband's favorite restaurants and we were so excited to go here for his birthday. We had early reservations on a Friday evening. When we arrived, we were immediately seated. However, I don't think a server was assigned to our table. After about 20 minutes, someone saw that we needed attention and came over to... More

I can't say enough good things about J. Gilbert's. We frequently dine there but we recently had a party of 11 and they did an outstanding job. The food is always top notch (all food for the 11 of us came out at the same time and it was all hot). At the same time, though an expensive fine dining... More

We had dinner at J Gilbert's on a Sunday evening. We did not have reservations, but, were able to be seated in the bar. We liked the decor. The brick and wood gave the restaurant a rustic, elegant appearance. The menu is very nice with options for everyone. My wife chose the 6 ounce filet mignon. It was cooked perfectly... More

We are big Ruth's Chris Steakhouse fans, but the closest ones to us are 2 hours away. We have family near this area, and spent the night, hoping to dine at Ruth's. Were shocked to see it had closed. This gave us the perfect opportunity to try J. Gilbert's. First impression was good. Looks really cool on the inside....kinda dark... More
